Dennis and Sandi divorced when Drake was five years old. After the divorce, he and his mom stayed in Toronto, while his father went back to Memphis to support himself financially.

Fast forward to present day, Drake’s become one of the world’s most successful commercial artists. He’s earned countless titles, accolades, awards, grammys, nominations, prizes, and royalties. His net worth is reaching the $100M milestone, without a single album release since 2016 (Views From The 6).

Who’d’ve imagined this child to become such a legendary staple in the Hip-hop community? Drake’s impacted and changed the face of music for many years to come, so looking back on years past makes us appreciate his “glow up” so much more.
