Dang, Drake! The "Started From The Bottom" singer gave fans a real treat on Tuesday when he shared one sexy shirtless snap via Instagram. In the photo, the rapper shows off his bulging biceps and ripped chest while wearing Calvin Klein boxers, sweatpants and sneakers. "@ipushpounds early morning," the "Take Care" singer captioned the candid photo. The "Degrassi" alum has definitely been hitting they gym a ton this year -- he also shared a picture of his hardcore workout regimen two months ago on the social media site. "@ovojonnyroxx Tank got me working at the Palace!!!!! Push Pounds," he captioned the sweaty snap. It's crazy to think that Drake (aka Aubrey Graham) first got his start playing the aspiring rapper/later crippled Jimmy Brooks on the TV drama "Degrassi: The Next Generation" from 2001-2009 -- he sure has changed a lot since starring on the series! We think Drake would be making Jimmy very, »

Degrassi: The Next Generation has been going strong since 2001, teaching important lessons to kids of all ages. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, and the show is finishing its run on TeenNick on July 31. Don't get too upset! Netflix is reviving it in the form of Degrassi: Next Class, which will debut in 2016. But to celebrate the final episode on TeenNick, previous cast members returned to film It Goes There: Degrassi's Most Talked-About Moments, which will air on the same night as the finale. Take a look here to see the cast reunite! (And sadly, Aubrey Graham, aka Drake, wasn't there.) »
Good news, "Degrassi" fans. Just a few days after news that everyone's favo(u)rite Canadian teen soap would be ending after its 14th season, Netflix has come to the rescue. The streaming service will rename the show "Degrassi: The Next Class" (it was "The Next Generation" previously), and start airing it in 2016. The "Degrassi" universe was created by Linda Schuyler and Kit Hood way back in 1979. This will mark the fifth fictional series in the franchise, following "The Kids of Degrassi Street," "Degrassi Junior High," "Degrassi High," and "Degrassi: The Next Generation." It also is more or less the reason the world has Drake (the rapper starred in 138 episodes of the latter series, then going by Aubrey Graham), and has been a pioneering series when it comes to tackling Lgbt topics. Thanks Netflix :)

After 14 seasons, lots of breakups, a few pregnancies, and several coming-outs, Degrassi will officially go on summer break for good. TeenNick has announced that the series, a continuation of the Canadian teen drama that aired in the '80s, will end this July with a two-week "finale event" kicking off on July 20. It will officially conclude with an hour-long special called" It Goes There: Degrassi's Most Talked About Moments" on July 31. Inevitably, they'll have to wrap up Claire and Eli's pregnancy, but what about the Degrassi OGs? (And no, we're not talking about Archie Simpson and that gang.) This season so far has had a cameo from Spinner (yep, he still runs the Dot), but there's one person we haven't seen since season eight: Drake! Did Jimmy Brooks actually marry his physical-therapy boo? Is he walking now thanks to those stem cells? What the hell happened to his »

Let's take it back to those post-bar mitzvah boy days when Aubrey Drake Graham hadn't quite yet capitalized on his swag and musical genius. "I was in eighth grade and there was this kid in my class whose father was an agent. My biggest problem in school was that I was an attention-seeker, so I was always trying to make people laugh in class. And this kid was like, 'You're funny, you've got timing. You should meet my dad, my dad's an agent. You're mixed, and you have a presence about you,'" Drake recalled in a 2009 interview with the Recording Academy. "So eventually in grade nine I took him up on his offer and went to meet his dad," the rapper continued. "And »
The 56-year-old star made a surprise cameo during Drake's Coachella set on Sunday, as the rapper performed his song, "Madonna."
Madge marched onto the stage wearing thigh high boots, fishnets, and a tank which read "Big as Madonna" (a line from Drake's song). Then, as the 28-year-old rapper was seated facing the audience, Madonna leaned down and began to make out with Drake.

When it was all over, the rapper looked, uh, we'll go with ...

Canada’s finest rapper will curate an exhibition at Sotheby’s this spring to highlight the works of prominent contemporary African-American artists, including Kara Walker, Glenn Ligon, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. In case you thought Saukrates was Canada’s finest rapper, that's Aubrey Drake Graham who was tapped, "through a personal connection within Sotheby’s contemporary art department," according to the New York Times. Also, "he is not being paid." (More woes for the 6 God, I guess.) The show goes on view April 28 to June 12 at Sotheby’s headquarters in New York. Just speculating here, but does this mean Drake will perform “Energy” for six hours straight and become a blue-chip buyer? Crazier things have happened. »
