Where: Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Drake aka Aubrey Drake Graham is already spitting rhymes with some of the biggest names in the rap game. He’s collaborated with Lil Wayne, Jay-Z and Young Jeezy and remixed indie artists like Santigold, Lykkie Li and Peter Bjorn and John. Rumors soon spread that Drake and Rihanna were dating, but both deny the romance and swear they’re just good friends. The New York Post says otherwise—apparently the talented twosome were canoodling (aka kissing) at New York’s Lucky Strike Lanes and Lounge bowling alley! Drake already has some famous ex-girlfriends, one of which is Keisha Chante—he mentions her in his song, Deceiving.

Famous Friends

Drake’s first music video for Best I Ever Had was directed by Kanye West and critics have compared Drake’s 2009 mix tape, So Far Gone, to Kanye’s 808s and Heartbreak album—probably because Drake has a tendency to drench his smart lyrics in autotune too. But don’t be fooled by the robot voice—Drake can rap and sing. After hearing a few of his tracks, Lil Wayne gave Drake a call while he was sitting in the barber chair getting his hair cut! Drake flew to Houston to meet him the very next night and now he’s signed to Lil Wayne’s label, Young Money Entertainment.

Thank Him Later

Drake’s debut album, Thank Me Later is slated for release later in 2009 but rumors are already circulating that he’ll be recording with Andre 3000, Jay-Z and Kanye West. Drake says his new album won’t sound as arty as his mix tapes, but Drake assures his fans that “it’s a solid hip hop album.” Drake comes from a musical family—his dad Dennis Graham wrote for Al Green and drummed for Jerry Lee Lewis, and Drake’s uncle, Larry Graham, played bass for Prince!

Fun Fact

While Drake’s dad was in jail, he shared a cell with a rapper named Poverty. Drake and Poverty would swap lyrics over the phone and that’s how Drake’s interest in rapping began.

I am actually a shipper myself. In fact, I didn't really believe in that many shippings except three. But I honestly think this is a nice pairing for whatever reason. Maybe it's the fact that this time Serena ACTUALLY has canonical crush on Ash? I usually base my beliefs on true facts. And they're in a region based on France. It is a rather romantic atmosphere, which I guess is why I get challenged by so many honeymooners in the Pokemon Y game... Anyway, why don't you post what you think? Are they a nice pairing, or do you think other shippings are better? I understand, because Pokeshipping is a worthy opponent.

Brave all the way. The story is rather original, and Merida is one if the very few Disney princesses that don't need a prince to save her, or marry her or any of that junk.
