Drake's Top 5 TV Appearances
Drake, aka ‘Aubrey Graham’, aka ‘Champagne Papi’, might be one of the best rappers of our generation, but before he was “25 sitting on 25 mill” he was just a regular Canadian teen actor, playing legendary character Wheelchair Jimmy on Degrassi. Since then Drake has become a household name in the music industry, but he hasn’t forgotten his acting chops. Earlier this year he hosted SNL and made us all realize that besides being a sensitive sweetheart he is also fucking hilarious. In celebration of the singer/actor’s 27th birthday we compiled a list of his five best TV appearances.
5: The time on SNL he played a Lil Wayne/Urkel hybrid from a ‘Before They Were Stars’ segment.
4: The time his SNL opening monologue included ‘home footage’ of his Bar Mitzvah, during which his Jewish and Black families meet for the first time and he tells us he “dated Rihann-ukkah.”
3: The time Jimmy was politically correct and put the always ridiculous Spinner in his place for acting weird to his friend Marco because he came out as gay. The time on SNL he played a Lil Wayne/Urkel hybrid from a ‘Before They Were Stars’ segment.
2: The time during Degrassi when Jimmy got a boner while getting a massage. Awk-ward.
