Before becoming a rapper, Drake appeared on the MTV show Degrassi and when he did start rhyming, he rapped about wooing women, not the street topics that his mentor is known for.
“Please rap about your little TV show,” Lil Wayne remembers telling him. “Rap about girls ’cause that’s what you’re good at… Don’t start singing about killin’ nobody. Don’t start singing about the streets. Keep it Canadian.”
