Of course our 6ix god Drake spent his younger years hanging out in the Toronto streets, but did you know that his maternal grandfather Reuben Sher owned a furniture factory in the city? Why is that important information? Well it seems that a 200-page notebook (purchased at Loblaws no less) was found about a 10 years ago in the space that used to house his grandfather's store.
Many believe it was the notebook Drake – then known as Aubrey Graham – used while he was still working on Degrassi: The Next Generation. He played the character Jimmy Brooks on the show from 2001 to 2008.
Well that notebook has surfaced and is now being auctioned off by Moments In Time of Los Angeles and is estimated to bring in a whopping $54,000 U.S.
The contents of the notebook contain Drake's “10 Mack Commandments” – his personal spin on Biggie Small’s “10 Crack Commandments” – as well as variations of his signature and personal credit card numbers.
Some sample pages from his notebook can be found, here.
