Drake Finally Reveals He Was Fired From ‘Degrassi’ — Find Out Why.
In a recent interview with W, Drake, Toronto’s best import, shares that he was “kicked off” Degrassi. When he joined Degrassi: The Next Generation as the character Jimmy Brooks at 14, he was already making music, which he says “was part of the reason I was kicked off the show.” He further describes juggling the show and his music career and says, “Back then, I’d spend a full day on set and then go to the studio to make music until 4 or 5 a.m. I’d sleep in my dressing room and then be in front of the cameras again by 9 a.m. Eventually, they realized I was juggling two professions and told me I had to choose.”
Drake says that he “chose this life.” “This life” being sold-out shows and subtweeting his exes on his albums, of course.
