Drake Net Worth 2022
According To Uswhispers Drake is a Canadian-born actor, producer and rapper who has a net worth of $250 million dollars. Drake is consistently one of the highest-paid entertainers in the world.
Prior to becoming a massive rap super star, Drake was a child actor who appeared on the Canadian teen-drama Degrassi: The Next Generation. Since first gaining mainstream success, Drake has earned more than $430 million in his career before taxes and lifestyle costs.
A "long-term worldwide partnership" between Universal Music Group and Drake was announced on the company's Q1 earnings call in May 2022, which included "recorded music" as well as "music publishing" and "film, television and brands." In a few of his songs, Drake has hinted at this deal.
Among his many songs, "360 up front" was a reference to a record deal he had signed. Universal's statement has led some to believe that this lyric means that he was paid $360 million upfront. According to other sources, the deal could be worth as much as $400 million. It was estimated that Drake's music catalogue alone was worth more than $50 million to the company in the years prior to signing the deal.
Drake would theoretically have been paid $200 million upfront if the deal was worth $400 million after taxes, assuming it was worth $400 million.
Aubrey Drake Graham was born in Toronto, Canada on October 24, 1986. Dennis, Drake's father, was a drummer who performed with artists such as Jerry Lee Lewis. Drake's mother Sandra, aka Sandi, worked as an English teacher and florist. As a child, Drake went to a Jewish day school and celebrated his Bar Mitzvah.
The marriage of Sandi and Dennis broke up when Aubrey was just five years old. His father relocated to Memphis, where he was arrested and imprisoned for a long period of time on drug-related charges. Aubrey stayed in Toronto with his mother, but he made yearly summer trips to Memphis to see his father when his father was not incarcerated
Drake would later claim that Dennis was absent from his childhood, which Dennis has vehemently denied and asserted were embellished for record-selling purposes.
Drake discovered a love for acting and singing while attending Forest Hill Collegiate Institute. When he went to school at Vaughan Road Academy, he was bullied for being bi-racial and religious. He took a break from school for a while, but returned in 2012 and graduated.
An old childhood friend's father, an actor, was instrumental in helping Drake land a role on the Canadian teen drama "Degrassi: The Next Generation" when he was just 15 years old. The character he played on the show was Jimmy Brooks, a basketball star who was shot by a classmate and left permanently disabled. With guest appearances in 2008, he served as a cast member from seasons 1 to 7.
