Without this social media platform Drake may not be the same popular Toronto rapper that he is though. Many mistakenly believe that Drizzy’s rise to fame happened because of the 8 years that the rapper spent playing Jimmy Brooks on Degrassi High: The Next Generation but the truth is that MySpace helped Drake get discovered and gave his musical career a big boost.
