He’s a singer, he’s a songwriter, and he’s a Grammy-Award winning and platinum selling artist and the face of the light-skinned nation. Drake was born Aubrey ‘Drake’ Graham on October 24, 1986 to Sandi and Dennis Graham. He gets his African American genes from his father, a native of Memphis Tennessee and he owes his Jewish Canadian descent to his mother.
On a lighter note, we definitely know Drake’s height cannot be credited to his mother.
Drake’s interest in entertainment and performing did not start in recent days; he began at an early age. He was first recognized for his role in the popular TV series ‘Degrassi: The Next Generation’ which he left in 2007 to pursue and focus on his rap career. After a couple of mix-tapes, he went on tour with rapper Lil Wayne in 2008 and was signed to his label, Young Money Entertainment in June 2008, Drake was on a roll and since then he has stayed as relevant as ever.
Drake has come a long way since then as he now holds the record for the most number one hits on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Chart. He has also created a brand, October’s Very Own (OVO), with subsidiaries like OVOSOUND and OVOFEST. Drake is the proud owner of a clothing line and his own channel on ‘Beats 1′, currently he is also an ambassador for ‘The Toronto Rapters‘. His net worth is currently estimated at $55 million.
Before cutting to the chase, here is a brief description of the phenomenal rapper, Drake has an average build, an athletic body shape and is light skinned as a result of his mixed ethnicity, with dark brown eyes and dark hair. He often grows out his beard or leaves a shadow of it, needles to say its been a while since we have seen a clean-shaved Drake.
The god of height has obviously smiled upon him and he should be thankful to them, he is 6 feet tall (1.83 m) along with personalities like Late Elvis Presley, the King of rock and roll, Late John Kennedy the 35th president of the USA and Vin Diesel, the popular action film actor.
Drake dodged some ‘short’ genes from his mother, Sandi who is 4 feet 8 inches (1.42 m) which puts her in the same height bracket as popular reality TV star Nicole Elizabeth Polizzi widely known as Snooki. Being short is no sin, but we can all say we are thankful for Drake’s height.
Adequate weight is very important to public figures like Drake. He may not have a buff and built frame, but he has maintained a trim figure which makes him even more appealing. He is no stranger to the gym and this is evident as he weighs 69 kg, which is not in any way out of the usual for a man his age and height, he also watches what he eats although this is not only for his weight but because the Jewish culture has one or two dietary restrictions.
Drake’s Body Measurements
He has a certain soft aura about him, we can attribute this to Drake’s height, build, weight and general appearance. The fact that he is well defined but not ‘ripped’ has given him an upper hand with the ladies and as a result, most of his songs appeal to the female crowd.
Drake’s chest is one of his most treasured assets and its hard not to notice especially with all those very distracting shirtless pictures we see of him lately. His chest size is 41 inches and that must be one of the reasons why he is not ashamed to flaunt it.
His physique is incredibly proportionate and with it he commands a subtle yet powerful aura, it’s almost confusing, but boy do we love it! His biceps are 14 inches and his waist is 30 inches. He makes it seem almost effortless, but we know better, it takes some hard work and compromise.
It should not be hard for Drake to find his shoes in practically any part of the world, his shoe size is pretty moderate and obtainable. Just in case you were wondering, Drake wears a shoe size 11 US, his Euro size is 41-42 and his UK size is 9.
In all his fame and glory, we cannot help but love Drake, he started from the bottom and now he is here, with his admirable portfolio and statistics.
