Drizzy Drake was obviously not always the super successful rap legend that he is today. Prior to his amazing hip-hop career the “Started From The Bottom” rapper got his break in the entertainment industry as an actor. How could we forget his character, Jimmy, from Degrassi years ago!
Since then he has been able to showcase his acting skills on music videos, commercials, and even participated in some hilarious skits on Saturday Night Live recently. Now the 6 God is telling sources that he wants to dive even deeper back into his acting career soon.
In an podcast interview with the Kentucky basketball coach, John Calipari, Drake explained his decisions saying, “I think after I release More Life, which is this playlist I’m working on, and finish this tour, I think I’m going to really start to position myself in the acting world and, hopefully, take some great roles”.
So don’t worry fans, we will still be getting more hits from Drake before he hits the big screen and I’m sure he will still be working in the studio between acting jobs. Can’t wait to see what Drizzy has in store for us with More Life and what acting roles he will take in the future.
In the meantime, take a listen to the full podcast interview with Coach Calipari below.
