Drake is one of the richest men in the music business, but he just picked up something money can't buy: a high school diploma!
10 years after dropping out against his mother's wishes, the rapper has been fulfilling all of the necessary requirements to become a high school graduate over the last five months, according to Yahoo! Canada Music. "97% on my final exam. 88% in the course. One of the greatest feelings in my entire life. As of tonight I have graduated high school," he tweeted.
So what inspired Drake to go back to school? Believe it or not, the Canadian said he was inspired by the University of Kentucky. He served as a guest coach during the University Of Kentucky's Big Blue Madness scrimmage in 2009 and has continued to bond with the team over the last several years.
"Kentucky has given me a real home," he said. "I never got like a great school experience, and when Coach Cal asked me to come here for the first Midnight Madness it just really gave me a sense of school, a sense of love, a sense of belonging to something. So that's why I feel like I belong to the UK family, and that's why I'm graduating from high school this month. So, I'm actually inspired by UK, inspired by these boys right here."
