In 2007, he released Comeback Season to much critical acclaim and praise. It was from here on where Graham started gaining popularity when he did his first song with Lil Wayne, a remix of the already popular song “Man of the Year” which Wayne didn’t rap in but had ad-libs in the end of the song. In 2008, he released Heartbreak Drake, yet again a popular release and gaining more acclaim and buzz for the artist. So Far Gone, which included Drake’s mentor Lil Wayne, and members of Young Money, was released in 2009. Also in 2007, Graham became the first unsigned Canadian rapper to have his music video featured on BET when his first single, “Replacement Girl” was featured as the “Joint of the Day” in April 2007.

While working on his mixtapes and his album, Drake has worked with Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Trey Songz, Robin Thicke and Little Brother. Drake has also written for Jazz Cartier, Bishop Brigante and Dr. Dre. He is currently working on his debut album, Thank Me Later.

He has achieved this success without even signing to a major record label, according to his management Hip Hop Since 1978

In June 2009, it was revealed that a fake Drake album entitled The Girls Love Drake was up for sale on iTunes. A lawsuit is planned against the label.

    Well let me start off by saying Aubrey ‘Drake’ Graham is offically the best rapper alive, next to De’Wayne Micheal Carter Jr. I’m Drake’s number one fan, stickin’ with him from Degrassi to his first mix tape ‘Room for Improvement’ , all the way to his last. Drake has became so much in the past 4 years that it amazes me. His success has inproved rapedly over the years & i love every moment of it. Drake to me is an isperation, from being un-signed one moment in life to becaming signed to one of the most biggest recored lables in the world . I myself am only 15 years old & have been a fan of drake for years, i want to myself one day become a Rapper/singer & Drake him-self inpires me to do that. I just wanted to congratulate Drake for his improvments in life, all in all Drake you are amazing & dont every stop what you have become .

    DrizzyDrakeRogers goes hard. Thank Me Later is going to be classic, that why he is taking his time. Good things come to those who wait, and he is just perfecting his album making sure it bullsh*t and rush its release and making a horrible record.

    One of my dreams i 2 meet drake.As 4 a 13 year old girl,we are trips 4 drake and we are like his number 1 fan.but me i am not like that,dont get me wrong i am a fan but i mean i am not one of those who want 2 fuss and fight 4 a star or a singer.i jus want 2 be a frind not a fan because a friend is better then a fan.talking to ur favorite singer and rapper is a 1 and a life time oppertunity 4 every male and female,but if i could just talk 2 drake that would be nice.it may be very hard 2 do that because i live in the bahamas but i hope my dream comes true
    -love latedra A.K.A teddy
