How much is Drake worth? Drake is worth $35 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, and that fortune seems about right for a guy who’s sold more than 5 million records around the world. Born Aubrey Drake Graham on October 24, 1986, in Toronto, Canada, this rapper and sometime actor may have “Started from the Bottom,” as he raps on his acclaimed 2013 album “Nothing Was the Same,” but he’s clearly arrived. Since making his debut with 2009’s “So Far Gone,” Drake has emerged as one of the biggest names in hip-hop, and he’s collaborated with Rick Ross, Kanye West, Jay Z, and Lil Wayne, among others.
Drake’s net worth of $35 million may seem small, at least compared to guys like Jay Z and Kanye West, who are sitting on $850 and $120 million, respectively, but he’s only been in the game for a short time. Hova and Yeezy have been making records for more than a decade, while Drake spent the ’00s acting on “Degrassi: The Next Generation,” a Canadian teen soap opera on which he portrayed Jimmy Brooks. Drake’s big musical break came in 2009, when Lil Wayne heard his jams and signed him to his Young Money roster.
Since joining the Young Money family, Drake has released the albums “Thank Me Later” (2010), “Take Care” (2011),” and “Nothing Was the Same” (2013). Given his track record — all three of those LPs topped the Billboard 200 — Drake’s net worth is bound to increase in coming years. His music has earned him 18 Grammy nominations, among other accolades, and he’s toured all around the world. Drake has also reaffirmed his acting skills by hosting “Saturday Night Live,” so if he ever gets bored with music, he can probably go back to TV or make the jump to movies and earn even more cash for his bank account.
Ask the question, “How much is Drake worth?” a decade from now, and dude may very well be flaunting some Hova-level dough.
