50 Cent Praises Drake's Come-Up Since "Degrassi"

In the past 10 years, Drake’s been a dominant force in the music industry. His prominence in rap has practically made people forget about his true origin story. Before shattering Billboard records and accumulating platinum plaques, Drake was a child star on Degrassi: The Next Generation. He played the role of Jimmy Brooks in the Canadian teen drama and recently reflected on some of his wardrobe choices during that era.

The rapper took to his Instagram Story where he shared some throwback flicks where he’s dripped out in vintage Jordan gear and some OG 50 Cent merch. “Degrassi fits were serious,” Drake captioned the post with a laughing emoji. Of course, Fif caught the Story and responded on his own IG page where he commended Drake for his rise in the entertainment world.
