Drake Is Still Getting Checks For Degrassi

Canadian soap operas are the gifts that keep giving.

Part of Drake's origin story is the time he spent on the Canadian teen soap opera Degrassi. Still going by Aubrey Graham at the time, the Toronto native played Jimmy and was best known for getting paralyzed after being shot in the back. Anyway, Drake left the show in 2007 to become the man we know today, but that doesn't mean he's not still getting paid.

Drake was listed as the fifth richest person in hip-hop by Forbes back in May, with a net worth of $90 million.
