Drake is currently regarded as one of the most successful rappers of all time, despite the fact that he had to repeatedly prove himself on his path to global fame. Though he reportedly has a net worth of $250 million, Drake entered the rap business with a very low amount of money in his bank account.

The four-time Grammy Award winner stated that in 2006, he was paid just $100 to perform as rapper Ice Cube’s opening act in Canada. The Flyer Vault just found the original flier for the show which confirmed the rumors about the low pay that have been circulating for years.

The performance was announced as taking place at the now-closed “Kool Haus” in Toronto, Drake’s hometown. The rapper performed tracks from his debut mixtape “Room For Improvement.” The invoice lines from Ramos Entertainment Management Group were blacked out on the flyer, with the exception of the $100 payment to Drake.

Drake confirmed that it is the sum that was given to him and offered some words of inspiration for individuals going through a similar hardship at the beginning of their musical careers. “This is for anybody getting 100 a show right now… keep going,” the rapper wrote to encourage his 122 million Instagram Story followers.
