Although few have heard of Drake in the United States, he has built up a strong reputation in his native Canada. Despite being best known for his role as Jimmy Brooks on Degrassi: The Next Generation, the Toronto native also has a rap career, the pinnacle of which came with the Trey Songz-assisted Replacement Girl (the first Canadian unsigned video to chart on BET’s 106 & Park countdown). Making an even bigger move, Drake has recruited arguably the most popular hip-hop artist in the world (Lil’ Wayne) for the singing rappers’ ballad on how stale a relationship can get when nothing is Brand New. Enhanced by a slow beat from the T-Dot’s premier producer Boi-1da, Brand New is a lead up to Drake’s third mixtape/album, So Far Gone, available online this August.
