The recently turned-31-year-old rapper Drake threw a lavish birthday party on October 24th, 2017, at the aptly named Poppy bar in Los Angeles. @champagnepapi indeed knew what’s up as he organized a star-studded Bar Mitzvah-themed bash and invited people from all showbiz layers: G Eazy, Halsey, Madison Beer, Kelly Rowland, Leonardo Dicaprio, Tobey Maguire, Usain Bolt, Lamar Odom, Lewis Hamilton, to ex Hailey Baldwin, and many others. Though one thing remains: where are his ultimate crush Rihanna and the rumored lover Bella Hadid?
The case wasn’t always that complicated though. Throwback to the beginning of his career, Audrey Drake Graham rarely became a hot topic covered by media. His first exposure in the entertainment was through the well-known teen drama TV series Degrassi: The Next Generation. But he always considered that as a side project, his biggest passion has always been in the rapping scene. He launched his debut studio album in 2010 and his mad musical talent got the recognition it deserves: debuted No 1 on the US Billboard 200. He even received a certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. Drake is a proof that anyone has to be consistent in pursuing their dream and for that we’ve compiled 13 best quotes from the man himself.
