You’ll need to grab a tight-fitting turtleneck in grey with grey sweatpants as well. For the shoes, you’ll need a pair of Timberlands or if those are too expensive, you can probably grab a knockoff from somewhere.

About Drake

If you’re not sure where you may remember this rapper from, maybe the name Degrassi rings a bell? Drake scored a place on Degrassi: The Next Generation as the wheelchair-bound character of Jimmy Brooks who he went on to play for seven years. He established quite a name for himself for his acting but it was nowhere as memorable to where his career as a rapper would lead him. Drake signed onto Lil Wayne’s label Young Money Entertainment and it all went uphill for him from there. These days, it’s hard not to hear about Drake from scandals he may be involved in to gossip about who he happens to be dating or seeing. You may have even heard his music here or there. He has definitely made quite a name for himself from his days of Degrassi. There’s even a little word out that Jay Z has called Drake the “Kobe Bryant of hip-hop.”
