News: Drake Speaks About His ‘Wealthy Upbringing’

Drake has spoken out against his ‘rich upbringing’.

Drake grew up in a wealthy neighbourhood called Forest Hills in Toronto, which has been used against him in his career as a rapper.

“People like to build their own story about my life,” he told NOW magazine. “I don’t know if it makes them feel better, or if it makes it okay for them to not like me, but the last thing I grew up as was rich.

“I had rich friends, but they weren’t giving me their money. I’m just not the type of guy to go, ‘No, no, no, I’m not rich’. People can say whatever they want about me, though. If they really want to learn them, the facts are out there.

“But I guess it’s easier on their hearts if I didn’t have to struggle, and makes it easier to not like me. It is what it is.”
