26 years ago, a petite woman named Sandi, gave birth to her only son. He grew up to be one of the most influential rappers of this current time. She called him Aubrey but to us, he’s Drake. Over the last six years, Drizzy has blessed us with a smooth flow, confident delivery and consistent hits, such as: “I’m On One,” “Over,” “Take Care” and my personal favorite “Find Your Love.”

Today is his birthday and in light of the celebration, we’ve put together a collage of 26 Drake photos.
