Move over mock Nothing Was the Same cover makers, @DrizzyTheType quipsters and Dada Lean photoshoppers, there's a new Drake meme sweeping the streets. It can be easy to loose sight of the fact that, before Drake became the mega-star he is today, he was just Jimmy Brooks, a humbled, wheelchair-bound super-senior on Degrassi: Next Generation. But it's the truth, and one clever Toronto blogger has made it her mission to make sure we never forget. For the past few weeks, Lauren O'Neil and her boyfriend have been traversing The Six -- as Drake's rechristened it --- plastering stickers of Drake's goofy grinning mug to any and every handicapped wheelchair sticker they come across. She's calling the campaign "Draking," and tells BuzzFeed that, "We just want to make people smile." Because, They be like, who's Drake? Where Wheelchair Jimmy at?
