    Drake Says He Got High Before Auditioning For "Degrassi," And The Truth Has Finally Been Revealed

    "I go back to this day when I was like 13 or 14. I had an audition for a TV show that ultimately shaped my life."

    Drake is one of the biggest musicians in the world, hands down.

    Way, way before that, however, the rapper born Aubrey Graham played Jimmy Brooks on the legendary Canadian TV teen drama, Degrassi: The Next Generation.

    Drake recently shared a video to IG in advance of his and 21 Savage's It's All a Blur tour kicking off — and with the video came some deep thoughts, including a surprising revelation about his Degrassi beginnings.

    "Someone asked me the other night what my biggest fear is," he said, later explaining that the question "sent me, you know, obviously deep into a spiral of thought. And it makes me think about my life and how surreal it feels at times."

    "I go back to this day when I was like 13 or 14. I had an audition for a TV show that ultimately shaped my life, and before my audition, I went to this kid’s house."

    "And I, out of, I guess, a desire to be accepted, I would succumb to peer pressure, and I got high with these kids right before my audition."
