For years, award-winning singer/rapper/multi-millionaire high school dropout Drake could've added "Motivational Speaker" to his resumé, proving to high school kids that you don't really need an education or diploma to become one of the most famous people in the world.

Now Drizzy, who once played perpetual high school student Jimmy Brooks on Degrassi: The Next Generation, has spoiled many a dream by graduating at the age of 25.

The rapper expressed his pride at the accomplishment last night:

97% on my final exam. 88% in the course. One of the greatest feelings in my entire life. As of tonight I have graduated high school!

Response on his timeline ranged from "Congratulations, I don't even like your music but I respect that" to the slightly less encouraging "SHUT YO ASS UP BRUH." Drake went so far as to call out his teacher, who will inevitably become Internet famous by the time you read this sentence.

Thank you to my teacher Kim Janzen for spending the last 5 months working tirelessly with me!! OVO SOUND

Mazel Tov, Drake. First a Bar Mitzvah. Now high school graduation. Once you start growing a scrub 'stache, your transformation into a man will be complete.
