Drake Talks About His Drug Use During First ‘Degrassi’ Audition

Drake recently hit Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and he brought a few insightful stories. Amidst playing drinking games with Fallon, Drake chopped it up about his first ever audition for ‘Degrassi‘. This also happened to be the first time Drake, real name Aubrey Graham, smoked weed.

“That was the first audition I went on, but it was a real pivotal day in my life because it was also the day that I finally got accepted by these real cool Jewish kids at school,” Drake said of the day he went on his Degrassiaudition. “I had a really tug-of-war moment where I actually did something I probably shouldn’t have done that starts with W and ends with eed…That was my first time and we did it out of a starts-with-a-B-ends-with-a-ong. It was crazy because that was my first time. I started really getting paranoid. I thought I had completely ruined my life. I was splashing water on my face constantly.”


Drake went on to describe his drug use while working now compared to that first audition.

“I don’t understand people that can actually go out onstage under the influence of anything really,” he said. “I have to be straight and clear-minded, kids at home.”
