    Canadian rapper Drake has received his high school diploma.

    He dropped out of high school when he was just 15 to pursue a role Degrassi: The Next Generation. He was one credit short of graduating at the time, but he decided to follow his dreams. We can't say we blame him, and at least he went back to finish the job.

    Drake tweeted the good news: "97% on my final exam. 88% in the course. One of the greatest feelings in my entire life. As of tonight I have graduated high school! Thank you to my teacher Kim Janzen for spending the last 5 months working tirelessly with me!! OVO SOUND."

    Congrats, Drake, you high school graduate, you!
