A child actor on popular Canadian teen series Degrassi: The Next Generation from the age of 15 to 22, Drake never finished high school. But now that he’s on a break from recording albums and touring, the Toronto native has decided to finish what he started.“I’m actually spending my summer graduating high school,” he said in a recent interview with Now Toronto. “That’s my main focus after OVO Fest. I only have one credit left, and I’m really excited about that.”
Drake isn’t the only Canadian breakout star to go after his high school degree this year. In July, Justin Bieber graduated from St. Michael Catholic Secondary School in Stratford, Ontario, after taking courses electronically.
SNOOP LION ( FORMERLY ) SNOOP DOGG..PERFORMS HIS NEW REGGAE SONG " LA LA LA " FOR THE FIRST TIME IN CANADA ..I LUV IT THOU !!
Snoop Dogg‘s new reggae persona, Snoop Lion, performed over the weekend at theOsheaga Festival in Montreal, where he treated festival attendees to the first-ever live version of his new single, ‘La La La.’
Snoop Lion looked the part, with a Rasta hat and a black tshirt with his own face on it in the reggae colors of red, green and yellow. He took the stage smoking something that looked suspiciously like an illegal substance — although we know Snoop would never do such a thing. Between puffs, he sang the laid-back tune and invited the crowd to sing along with the deceptively-catchy hook.
‘La La La’ will appear on Snoop’s next release, ‘Reincarnated,’ which documents his transformation from rapper to reggae champion. Snoop said in a statement that he “wanted to bury Snoop Dogg and become Snoop Lion,” although he reportedly included some old rap hits like ‘Gin and Juice’ in his Osheaga set. Also, we feel obligated to point out that Snoop still used his giant custom-made “Snoop Dogg” microphone. Hey, that thing probably cost a lot of dough, so who can blame him for wanting to get his money’s worth?
Diplo and Major Lazer are among the big-name producers who worked on the new record. A documentary about Snoop’s life-changing experiences in Jamaica, to be released in conjunction with the album, will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in early September
