But before all of that, Aubrey was on a Canadian show called Degrassi: The Next Generation.

Drake played Jimmy: basketball star, school shooting victim, and rapper at the end of his tenure.

And although Drake hasn't been on Degrassi since 2008, he still gets checks from being on the show, apparently.

The ~grind~ never stops.

But if you think he'll be rolling in the dough from this, think again.

But before you complain about this, remember that Drake is currently worth $90 million in 2017.

He also surpassed Adele for the most Billboard Award wins in one night, with 13.

The real victim here is Lauren Collins (aka Paige). If she doesn't get her check, I'll fight Epitome Pictures.

Paige was the true legend, huns, and deserves the biggest, fattest check.
