He related another memory from the mid-2000s when he and Drake were at Skybar Los Angeles after being signed by Degrassi. “You went to the bathroom and wrote ‘Buy Drake CDs’ on the board,” Shane said. “And Travis Barkerswho happened to urinate next to you said, “Who is Drake?” And you turned to him and said, ‘I’m Drake.’ ”
The actor suspected carefully, “I take it you don’t sell CDs in the bathroom anymore.” In a full circle moment, Drake appeared at the 2010 Grammys with Travis five years after that incident.

“I know I have another burned CD somewhere that you signed ‘Drake’ that I need to find,” she joked. “Next, I’m going to Toronto and listening to your first track on FLOW 93.5. And I was like, ‘Aubrey will make it.’ Here we are today: You are Billboards Artist of the Decade. “
