A handwritten letter from teenage Drake

Before Drake became one of the biggest rappers in the world, he was just a young man called Aubrey Graham.

In the years between 2002 and 2005 Graham owned a notebook packed full of notes and letters.

One letter sees the rapper promising his mother he'll clean his room.

If you want the whole book, it's going to cost you $32,500.

According to TMZ, it was found in a dumpster near Drake's grandpa's old furniture factory in Toronto.

It reportedly features 20-25 pages of, 'verses, full songs, and random musings.'

Drake writes to his mother

One page in the book sees the young rapper writing a note to his mother.

In the note, he promises to clean his room when he comes home.

Someone, presumably his mother, responds;

'In order to receive 8:15 am rides this week -- room must be clean + bathroom must be clean AS PROMISED FRI JAN. 18th!!!"

On the back of the note is a personal bio written by the rapper himself.

It includes his music influences, hobbies and talents.

He also writes a bit about his fathers influence on him.

'Dad was in a blues band and when allowed, I would watch him play and sometimes get up and sing.'

He lists his idols as, 'B.I.G, Michael Jackson, Will Smith, R Kelly, Jay Z, Lil Bow Wow, Usher and Al Green.'

'Aubrey enjoys playing basketball, writing music, shopping and...'

'Aubrey lives for music...'

Drake has come a long way since his Degrassi days.
