Drake was a smash hit as host of the first-ever NBA Awards show last month, but it wasn’t the first time he participated in a major awards show.
The 30-year-old was a child actor before he was an international sensation. As a teenager, the Toronto-based hip hop artist starred on Degrassi: The Next Generation.
And when Drake was 10 years old, he appeared in a skit for the NHL Awards in 1997.
