Drake Celebrated In ‘Toronto Life’ Power List

Published: Saturday 17th Nov 2012 by David

Undoubtedly the most relatable voice in the ‘male music’ arena, ‘Practice’ star Drake has become just as renown for his work outside the studio as he in for the work he creates inside of it.

One of his genre’s more positive ambassadors, this month has seen his record breaking sales, charitable work and creative influence celebrated by ‘Toronto Life‘s December edition, which lists their ‘50 Most Influential People In The City‘.

Their write up on the Rapper below…

They explained:

“Aubrey Drake Graham has gone international, but hasn’t dampened his crush on the city that raised him: he recently had a giant 416 tattooed on his torso, still keeps a condo at the St.Thomas, and gets his fade tightened by the same barber he went to when he was a Degrassi brat.

He turned impresario with the Toronto OVO Fest, which stands for October’s Very Own. He champions Toronto’s next wave of hip-hop artists-giving up-and-comer The Weeknd a prime-time slot-and brings his megastar pals Eminem, Jay-Z, Stevie Wonder, Nicki Minaj and Snoop to headline. UP NEXT: OVO 2013 is headed for the 55,000-capacity Rogers Centre, which should be big enough to constrain the egos on the bill.”

An undeniably glowing endorsement, his appearance on the list arrives as his latest LP ‘Take Care’ edges closer to the 2 million US units sold mark, less than one year after release.
