Drake's net worth is actually insane.
Drake aka ‘Champagne Papi’ is a man of many talents and his CV proves it. Born and raised in Canada, he started off as a young actor in hit Canadian TV series ‘Degrassi: The Next Generation’ before he signed to Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment label and became a rapper.
Drake has grown leaps and bounds from the sweet boy, boot cut jeans wearing twenty-something year old that signed to Lil Wayne’s label in 2009.
As well as dropping hits after hits including tunes like ‘One Dance,’ ‘Hotline Bling,’ ‘Jumpman’ and ‘God’s Plan,’ Drizzy has proven that he’s an asset and a man with a mission launching his own fashion label called OVO (October’s Very Own) which was launched in 2011. Available on the site is everything from shoes, track suits, hats to ash trays.
So how much is Drake’s net worth? Well thanks to his fashion ventures, music – he was one of the most streamed artists in 2017, acting and various deals with huge brands like Nike, Clarks and Timberland, Drake’s net worth is a solid $100 million according to Celebrity Net Worth.
With Drake about to drop a new album in June called ‘Scorpion,’ he’s already got his eyes set on going back to his acting days when he’s tired of working on music. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter late 2017, he said: "I'm sure I'll stop [music] one day.
"When it starts to feel like I'm making it up. Hopefully I'll catch it before I ever get there, right? But right now it feels like we just started, so I don't plan on stopping anytime soon. But I do plan on expanding — to take six months or a year to myself and do some great films. Music's always there."
On Drake’s ‘Weston Road Flows’ released in 2016, he rapped about retiring when he’s 35 which is four years from now. He said: “Shout out to KD we relate we get the same attention/ It’s rainin’ money, Oklahoma City Thunder/ The most successful rapper 35 and under/ I’m assumin’ everybody’s 35 and under/ That’s when I plan to retire, man it’s already funded.”
Drizzy’s also a fan of UK music and has given so many UK grime artists a co-sign for example Dave and Skepta. So much so that Drake got made a honorary member of BBK (Boy Better Know). His love for UK culture even spans to TV. The ‘God’s Plan’ rapper is reviving the UK series ‘Top Boy’ and plans to get back into acting.
Champagne Papi might be booked and busy with his work but he also makes time for the ladies and has a lengthy list of ex-girlfriends. Some of his exes include Rihanna, Serena Williams, J-Lo and reportedly Raye.
