Drake is consistently one of the highest-paid entertainers in the world. Prior to becoming a massive rap super star, Drake was a child actor who appeared on the Canadian teen-drama Degrassi: The Next Generation.
Since first gaining mainstream success, Drake has earned more than $430 million in his career before taxes and lifestyle costs.
Other sources have estimated the value of the deal at $400 million or more. In the years prior to signing, Drake's music catalog alone had been generating $50 million per year in revenue annually for the company.
