  • 2007 Aubrey Graham Interview -- the Early Drake Years

    Posted on 01/21/2011 by Mary

    Before he was Drake, he was Degrassi's Jimmy. And right after he put the finishing touches on the Comeback Season mixtape, he gave us one of his trademark super-candid interviews about... everything. Uh, his days of wearing Lady Speed Stick, why he's not interested in a "yes man", and the REAL reason he never answers his phone.

    Aubs, we miss you to death, and we remain prouder than peacocks of your ongoing world domination. Couldn't happen to a better guy.

  • It's Degrassi night on The Nightlife!

    alttext Don't forget to keep it locked after Degrassi tonight! 'Cause we've got Landon Liboiron (your boy Declan!) in the VIP, and a video from Degrassi super-alumnus Drake.

    Even though Jimmy on Degrassi was before my time here at TeenNick, Drake and I met a long time ago at a Teen Choice Awards show... those were the days. It's a great feeling to see him blowing up now, and an even greater feeling to be able to crank up the video for "Find Your Love" tonight.

    Oh, and my friend T.I. will be there, too. No big thing, just the King of the South. It's like that at The Nightlife.

    Drake back in the old days on Degrassi Sittin' here, listening to Drake's first full-length album (out now!), remembering when he (or Jimmy, anyway) was a big ol' 8th grader on Degrassi, going out with Ashley, abusing Ritalin, fighting with Spinner over dance contests and mp3 players.
