Drake's not to cool for school
Rapper Drake may have played a high school student on the Canadian teen drama "Degrassi: The Next Generation," but in real life he never graduated. However, that all changed recently as Drake, 25, announced he finally finished high school. BET reports Drake decided to take some time off this summer in order to accomplish his goal of getting his diploma.
The rapper shared the good news with his fans and friends in the industry on Twitter.
"97% on my final exam. 88% in the course. One of the greatest feelings in my entire life. As of tonight I have graduated high school!" Drake wrote on his page. "Thank you to my teacher Kim Janzen for spending the last 5 months working tirelessly with me!! OVO SOUND."
Don't expect Drake to slow down, however. ABC Action News reports the day after earning his diploma, Drake hit the stage to perform songs at an event put on by Tyra Banks in New York City. He couldn't hold his excitement in as he told the crowd, "[I] spent some time going back to high school, I got my high school diploma."
Do you think Drake should have gotten his diploma? Is it a good message to his fans?
