Years after ditching class for “Degrassi,” Toronto rapper Drake says he’s finally finished high school. The actor-turned-rapper, who turns 26 next week, tweeted Wednesday that he had met all the requirements to secure his diploma. He originally dropped out to pursue a role on the drama “Degrassi: The Next Generation.” He ultimately figured into well over 100 episodes of the popular teen soap from 2001-08. In announcing the news, Drake thanked teacher Kim Janzen for working “tirelessly” with him the past five months as he wrapped up his high-school education.
