Drake can be considered as one of the best rappers in the USA, and even in the world, nowadays. This rapper has had a very interesting career path. Namely, he first started his career as an actor and he acted mainly on TV. His most famous role was in a series called Degrassi: The Next Generation. He decided to turn to rap after this.
As many rappers in the USA, he had a pretty hard childhood and his life was not an easy one while he was growing up. First of all, his parents decided to get separated and later to get a divorce when he was just a little boy of five. After this, his father ended up in prison due to the accusations that he was dealing drugs. Drake also suffered a lot of bullying during his school days, and the reason for this was the combination of his origin, i.e. he was both African-American and Jewish.
His music career was launched after he started his cooperation with Lil Wayne and after he decided to sign a contract with the label for this artist. He soon released his first album which was called Thank Me Later. This was a great success and it held the first position on the USA Billboard 200 chart. One of the most successful albums he has had was the fifth one since the album reached even one billion streams in only seven days.
Let’s see what the quotes he is famous for are:
Accept yourself. You don’t have to prove shit to no one except yourself.
When you get hurt by the one you living for, pain can make you want to love no more.
Life can always change, you have to adjust.
Live without pretending, Love without depending, Listen without defending, Speak without offending.
A goal is just a dream with a deadline.
Tables turn, bridges burn, you live and learn.
Always felt like my vision been bigger than the bigger picture.
When you look ahead and darkness is all you see, faith and determination will pull you through.
Jealousy is just loved and hate at the same time.
Wish you would learn to love people and use things, and not the other way around.
I’m trying to do better than good enough.
I was born to make mistakes, not to fake perfection.
Sometimes it’s the journey that teaches you a lot about your destination.
When all is said and done, more is always said than done.
Sweat pants, hair tied, chilling with no make-up on. That’s when you’re the prettiest; I hope that you don’t take it wrong.
We live in a generation of not being in love and not being together.
If you thinking I’ ma quit before I die, dream on.
Strength isn’t always shown in what you can hold on to, sometimes it’s shown in what you can let go of.
I swear this life is like the sweetest thing I’ve ever known.
