Drake speaks during the 2017 NBA Awards Live On TNT on June 26, 2017 in New York City.

Drake spent the beginning of the week posing in a kitchen, sensually sipping on Starbucks, and attending a dance rehearsal, according to his Instagram.

Early Tuesday morning (July 18), though, he posted something slightly less glamorous: a royalty check from Degrassi worth $8.25.

 

Degrassi money still coming in don't sleeeeeeeep...--------------

If you’re feeling bad for Drake over the fact that this royalty check would not even cover a burger from Shake Shack, please rest easy: Drake was the fourth highest-paid musician in 2016, raking in $18.1 million from streaming, $5.2 million from sales and $13.6 million from touring.

Still, Drake, don’t spend this check all in one place.
