Breaking Through Next Year of 2008
A star in his native Toronto for the past seven years, Canadian-born actor/singer/rapper Aubrey “Drake” Graham is ready to break through stateside in 2009. Thanks to a slew of catchy mixtape records, several of which featured Lil Wayne, Drake secured a label deal with Interscope; a highly-anticipated new mixtape, So Far Gone, and currently-untitled domestic debut will follow later this year.
