Drake's Degrassi Money is Still Rolling in and We're Here For It

After all, he did rap "I got it rollin’ in all kinda ways, lump sum and residual"

If you thought Drizzy was able to afford his opulent 21,000-square-foot Toronto compound because of record sales, think again. It’s obviously that sweet, sweet Degrassi: The Next Generation cash that’s been keeping The Boy flush.

Drake famously played high school student Jimmy Brooks on the reboot of the Canadian teen classic from 2001 to 2009 before launching his crazy-successful music career. And the Degrassi royalties just don’t quit—Drake recently shared this pic on Instagram of a royalty cheque for a cool $8.25.

The pic was soon shared all over social and, in news surprising no one, Twitter was lit. (And TBH, considering Degrassi reruns seem to always be on TV, we’re kinda surprised the cheque was so teeny.) In honour of Drake, a.k.a. Aubrey Graham’s, iconic come-up from the halls of Degrassi to the Hollywood Hills, here’s a magical collection of Drake Degrassi GIFs for your viewing pleasure. In the words of Drizzy himself, thank me later.

I relate to this on a deep level.
