Drake is a Toronto- born rap star known for hit songs like Take Care, One Dance and Hotline Bling. He launched his music career in 2006 with the release of his mix tape " Room for Improvement" . 3 years later, his third mix tape earned him critical and commercial success, and the following year, he released his first album. After signing a deal with Lil Wayne' s label Young Money Entertainment, his career took off, and he' s now one of the biggest rappers on the planet. Below are 46 fascinating facts about the famous rapper.

In 2008, the producers of Degrassi overhauled the cast and eliminated his character. Although he had achieved modest success with his mix tapes, he wasn' t making much money yet as a rapper, and was on the verge of looking for a job " in a restaurant or something" to keep things going. Luckily for Drake, that didn' t end up being necessary.

An Italian chef has immortalized Drake, along with some of the biggest rap icons in the world, in sushi form. Dark seaweed makes up his hair and beard, and his skin is made of white rice. Snoop Dog, and Kanye West also Tupac are also featured, all with individual intricate details.

Drake made headlines in 2013 when the Toronto Raptors basketball team announced that Drake would become their new Global Ambassador. The role makes him the official " face" of the Raptors, and gives him an all- access pass to their home games. This made Drake an official part of the franchise, and was the first of its kind in the NBA.

Before Drake became a multi- millionaire, he would imagine his " someday" mansion, and spent a lot of time Googling epic residential pools. The L. A. mansion that he eventually purchased came with one of those incredible pools. The pool has an 80 foot waterslide, flat screen tvs in the grotto, and flame- spitting iron torches. He aptly named his home the YOLO estate. Drake is currently building a custom mansion on an estate in Toronto' s lavish Bridle Path.

Drake' s high school experience was one of isolation and feeling different. His high school was virtually all- white, and he' s said that " nobody understood what it was like to be black and Jewish. " . He also noted that being different from everyone else made him a lot stronger.
