It’s been a long time since now-superstar Drake played a wheelchair-bound high schooler in Degrassi: The Next Generation, but true fans will always remember.

For the uninitiated, you read that right. Drake — born Aubrey Drake Graham — was a mainstay on the teen drama between 2001 and 2008, appearing in 100 episodes during that time. The very same man who would eventually go on to bring us bops like “Hotline Bling” once played Jimmy Brooks on the popular program, starting at the ripe young age of 15. 

Drake went on to blow the world away with his talent as a rapper and songwriter. He’s since released six studio albums, raked in nearly 200 awards, and has headlined several worldwide tours. He’s a massive success in the music and acting worlds and has an income to match his prestige.

The Canadian-born actor and musician didn’t ditch his acting career following his departure from Degrassi. Drake has continued to make minor television and film appearances over the years, cinching minor roles in films like Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and Ice Age: Continental Drift as well as television series like Being Erica. He’s also earned producing credits on several projects, including Euphoria and Top Boy.

Drake’s diverse array of projects has aided the 35-year-old in accumulating a massive wealth. He has a current net worth of $250 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, and rakes in a whopping $70 million on an annual basis. Before travel, lifestyle, and taxes, the site estimates that Drake has earned a staggering $450 million over the course of his career. 

While he described himself as “very poor” in his earliest years in the spotlight, Drake has since become a huge earner, even among his famous peers. He makes around $1 million per concert, according to Celebrity Net Worth, and has made a minimum of $10 million dollars a year since 2010.
