Drake Comic Coming
He made a name for himself as the wheelchair bound Jimmy Brooks on "Degrassi: the Next Generation" but when Aubrey Graham went by his middle name, Drake, he rocketed to stardom. Now Bluewater Comics shares the story of how Drake went from Canadian teen-melodrama to the hip hop star that worked with Lil Wayne's stable of musicians with the comic "Fame: Drake."
"The New York Times" best selling writer Marc Shapiro, who is no stranger to the bio-comic, is giving his take on what makes Drake – Drake. "What makes Drake such a distinctive creative personality is that he's not just one thing. His music encompasses hip-hop, rap, old style rhythm and blues, soul and pop. And he's somebody whose music is commercial enough that you can actually hear his music on the radio if you search long enough," said Shapiro, who also authored "Fame: Selena Gomez" and "Infamous: Lindsay Lohan."
Shapiro said that while researching Drake's life he found him to be "refreshingly real and down to earth."
"When was the last time you heard of a celebrity blowing off a lucrative tour to be at his mother's side during her stay in the hospital? Drake did just that. You could die of old age waiting to find somebody who has as much soul, creatively and as a human being, as Drake," said Shapiro.
