Flashback Friday: Aubrey Graham Drake During His ‘Degrassi’ Days

By  | 

Many of us know and love Drake as a rapping superstar, but let's not forget about where he came from. Unless you've been living under a rock, we're sure you know by now that Drake — aka Aubrey Graham — got his start in the entertainment world by starring on the Canadian teen soap Degrassi in the early 2000's.

His character was named Jimmy Brooks, and was a popular basketball player (with a sensitive side) who ended up becoming paralyzed after a school shooting. Despite the sad story line, even then Aubrey Drake showed he had a musical side, as Jimmy was shown as being an apsiring rapper towards the end of his run on the show.

So, in honor of the latest Flashback Friday, we thought we'd dig up a little video of Aubrey Drake from 2004, during the height his Degrassi days. This particular video shows some behind the scenes stuff, and he even raps a bit! He also shows of notebooks with lyrics, and says he'll probably never use them. Little did he know…

Watch the video above for more! Did you watch him on Degrassi back in the day? Sound off in the comments section!
