“Degrassi money still coming in don’t sleeeeeeeep…” Drake jokingly wrote on Instagram as a caption for his March 2017 royalty check from Degrassi: The Next Generation.
The Canadian rapper might have appeared in 145 episodes of the popular teen show, but years later, he’s only raking in a whopping $8.25 for his work.
Naturally, fans are loving Drake making fun of himself online, with one fan hilariously writing, “My bank account looks like Drake’s Degrassi residuals.”
Check out the post and fan responses below.
