Drake Named One of GQ Magazine’s Men of the Year
Flashing a million dollar smile, and decked out in a black tuxedo, the Canadian emcee shares the accolade with three other big name celebs. Actor Jeff Bridges was named Icon of the Year, comedian Steven Colbert was named Patriot of the Year, while actor James Franco was named Leading Man of the Year. Actress Scralett Johansson broke into the boys club by receiving the Babe of the Year title. The honorees were all shot by famed photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.
The honor is very fitting of the kind of career the 24-year-old has had in the last year. Aside from receiving a Grammy nomination for his mixtape 'So Far Gone,' Drizzy released his debut 'Thank Me Later,' spawning a slew of hits and selling over a million copies. Drake will head out on a European tour this January alongside rapper J. Cole, who he recently teamed up with for a track off Cole's 'Friday Night Lights' mixtape.
