Pop the champagne and message your ex: it’s Drake‘s 30th birthday today. He’s come a long way from the days of Jimmy in Degrassi with a self-constructed studio in his bedroom. From the iconic ‘Hotline Bling’ moves, to the confession of his love for Rih Rih at this year’s VMAs, 2016 has been monumental for the Canadian.

“[I’m] the new version of Fresh Prince frequently referred to as Mr. Big Dreams,” a 20-year-old Aubrey once described himself in a WRG interview, “the only rapper up north that could claim king, but won’t because I always let the people decide… I built my career on my own. I chose not to sign to a major so that I could make my own lane and keep my f***ing publishing!” He proceeded to talk about his intentions to be on the billboards and establish a fruitful and successful career. Big, yet telling, words from a young Canadian who would ultimately become one of the most successful artists in modern-day history.

Fast forward 10 years and Views alone has enjoyed a record breaking run, achieving the most weeks at #1 on the Billboard 200 by any male in the past decade, as well as becoming the first record to gain one billion streams on Apple Music. 30 has never looked so enticing. To celebrate, we’ve compiled a list of his best snaps. After all, where would Drake be without Champagne Papi, right? So, without further ado, here are the top 12 moments over the past year straight from Champagne Papi’s Instagram. Nice guys don’t always finish last. Happy 30th Drizzy.
