Boy Meets World
Aubrey Drake Graham, better known as Drake, (aka. Drizzy, aka. Champagne Papi) is undoubtedly the biggest rapper to ever come out of Canada, with a 2013 Grammy for best rap album under his belt, quadruple platinum status, and too many infectious hits to count. But like many of today’s biggest stars, he’s more than just a music maker – he’s a pop culture influencer and a commercial force to be reckoned with, with his own record label and clothing line. As if that wasn’t enough, he also gets the credit for adding the acronym YOLO to popular vocabulary. (Which, if you don’t have a teenager in your life to explain, stands for “you only live once.”) This month, Toronto’s homegrown superstar makes a stop in Berlin on his Boy Meets World tour – don’t miss him on 9 March at
Mercedes-Benz Arena (p. 50).
