Drake’s father was an African-American from Memphis Tennessee, and a drummer who played with such greats as Jerry Lee Lewis. His mother was a white Jewish-Canadian English teacher, so Drake studied at a Jewish high school, and had a Bar-Mitzvah ceremony. Drake later enrolled in the Forest Hill Collegiate Institute, and continued his studies at the Vaughan Road Academy – even though Drake left the academy, he returned to graduate from it in 2012. He left because he had an opportunity to star in “Degrassi: The Next Generation” series, as already detailed.
