Toronto's actor and rapper Drake (Aubrey Graham), a member of Lil Wayne's crew, became a star thanks to Best I Ever Had, from the EP So Far Gone (2009), and the over-hyped album Thank Me Later (2010), on which he delivered some of the most ridiculous self-analyzing lyrics ever rapped/sung to humble atmospheric synth-laden arrangements (mostly Noah "40" Shebib) usually reserved for r&b crooners (a cross between James Blake and Kanye West). Nonetheless, Over (one of his smoothest transitions from pop singer to rapper and viceversa), the relatively upbeat and pounding ballad Find Your Love and Miss Me (in which Lil Wayne steals the show) further increased his popularity.

Take Care (Cash Money, 2011), another slab of obnoxious juvenile autobiography, features the eerie soul narrative Marvin's Room and spawned a record number of hits, notably The Motto. The rapper fails miserably to engage, but the production by Noah "40" Shebib, Jamie Xx and Just Blaze is admirable.

Nothing Was the Same (2013), mostly produced by Shebib, includes the pop crossover Hold On We're Going Home and Started from the Bottom.
