Unlike many rappers, Drake spent his childhood starring on Degrassi and had a mom who supported his eBay spending habits. He is not ashamed of his privileged past, either. On Sunday, he uploaded a picture of a hand written note he wrote to his mom promising to pay her back after spending a little too much money on eBay.

Dear Mom,

I have cancelled the Wireimage subscription due to my Ebay charges coming to more than I had planned for. Please know that you will be reimbursed fully through several methods and or means of payment.

THANKS for temporarily funding my music and wardrobe.

Drake explained in the caption to his throwback that "eBay was the addiction back in 2006. Def come a long way and it's safe to say I most likely settled this debt."


So this is what he means by "started from the bottom."
