Drake has graduated from high school, and collaborated with Kendrick Lamar

Drizzy has earned his high school diploma, ten years after dropping out.


Everybody’s favourite Canadian MC Drake (it was either him or Snow) has, at the age of 25, graduated from high school.

The rapper dropped out of his junior education at 15 to pursue an acting career on Degrassi: The Next Generation when he was just one credit short of graduating. On Twitter, he shared the news: “97% on my final exam. 88% in the course. One of the greatest feelings in my entire life. As of tonight I have graduated high school!” He also thanked his teacher, Kim Janzen, for “spending the last 5 months working tirelessly with me!!”

In other Drizzy-related news, his new collaboration with Kendrick Lamar, Poetic Justice, has recently premiered – stream it here, courtesy of Rap-Up. The Scoop DeVille-produced track appears on Kendrick’s debut album ‘good kid, m.A.A.d city’, out on Monday.
