Drake, whose real name is Aubrey Graham, played Jimmy Brooks in eight seasons of the teen drama series.
As an actor, he’s entitled to residual payments which begin once a show starts re-airing or is released to video/DVD, pay television, broadcast TV, basic cable, or new media.
But it’s not as if he’ll be rushing out to buy a car with the proceeds of his latest cheque. The singer posted a photo on Instagram revealing that his last cheque was for just $US8.25.
According to Forbes, Drake pocketed $US94 million in the last 12 months thanks to his concert tour, endorsements from Apple and Sprite and being the most-streamed artist on the planet.
