Drake: The Mixed Jew Rapper

 Q:   Ask a Question about Drake: The Mixed Jew Rapper       
Drake, Aubrey Graham is a 22-year-old actor and recording artist from Toronto. On June 29, 2009 it was confirmed Drake signed a record deal with Young Money Entertainment. This followed what Billboard purported to be "one of the biggest bidding wars ever". He plans to release his official debut album, Thank Me Later, in late 2009, and has confirmed collaborations with the likes of Kanye West, Jay-Z, Danny and Lil Wayne. Drake is currently touring with Wayne and other rap artists on the Young Money Tour.

Perhaps you've heard the hit "Best I ever had" on the radio this summer. What you may not have known is that the rapper in question, Drake (aka Aubrey Drake Graham) is a biracial Jew. His mother, is an Ashkenazi Jew ish Canadian and his father is Dennis Graham, a former drummer for Jerry Lee Lewis.

Drake was previously featured as an actor on Degrassi: The Next Generation. However, he chose to foray his skills into music. Drake has several connections in the industry. His uncles include Larry Graham from Sly and the Family Stone, and Teenie Hodges, a songwriter for Al Green.

In February 2006, Drake released his first mixtape Room for Improvement. It was made available via his website and official MySpace page. In 2007, he released another mixtape, Comeback Season, to much critical acclaim and praise, spawning a single and a music video for "Replacement Girl" featuring Trey Songz. It also contained a freestyle over a song with Lil Wayne, a remix of "Man of the Year" originally by Brisco and Flo-Rida. In 2008, Lil Wayne was given some of Drake's music from Rap-A-Lot founder, J. Prince's son and he immediately called Drake to invite him to fly to Houston and tour with him. Drake and Wayne recorded a couple of songs during this time, including "Ransom", the original version of "I Want This Forever", and the remix to Drake's song, "Brand New". Though now part of Lil Wayne's crew, Young Money, Drake was still not signed.
