It seems the giver of heights favoured the Canadian rapper, Drake. The superstar has a pretty cool height that perhaps could have gotten him unto the NBA field. So, how tall is Drake?
The Headlines hitmaker mentioned in his song Sneakin that he’s 6 feet 1 inch about four years ago. It seems people doubted. That called for a lot of mathematics that caused most people to give an average height of 5 feet 11 inches.
One viral comment that was spot-on was that of Darren White. According to him, his sister passed by the rapper while he was standing on the sidewalk in front of Sotto Sotto. The sister concluded that Drake is of the same height as a close friend who is 5 feet 9 inches. Can he be that tall?
This expression, like many others, refutes Drake’s claim that he is 6 feet tall and more.
So, we will draw some comparisons of heights with some of the stars he has stood with and we can get an accurate outcome or almost an accurate one.
Foremost, we would compare Drake and Lebron James. You all know that all the NBA players are majorly tall. They’re blessed with heights. In the photo below, Drake stood next to Lebron, the latter is 6 feet and 19 inches tall. From the image, you can deduce that he’s just a few inches above the rapper.
And in the next are Drake and Kevin Hart. Hart is about 5 feet and 4 inches tall. In this post with the God’s Plan hitmaker, you can tell it all that the Canadian is a foot taller than the comedian. This makes Drake’s 6 feet claim irrefutable.
To make it clearer, let’s look at the height of Rihanna who is 5 feet 8.11 inches tall. In the picture below she stood beside Drake. But don’t get it wrong, it’s quite weird to compare heights with women you know. You have to check what they stand on.
In most of the images that were spotted of Drake and Rihanna, the latter almost shared the same height as the former and that’s because of the heels factor. However, in the one below, you can perfectly see the gap between 6 ft 1 inch (1.83m) and 5 ft 8.11 inches (1.73m).
Finally, Neymar Junior. The footballer stands 1.72 meters tall. This means he’s just 0.11m shorter than Drake and that’s clearer in the shot below.
So, how tall is Drake? He is as tall as he claimed in Sneakin, he is 6 feet and 1 inch tall and there is no doubt about it. And oh! Apart from Hart, Rihanna and Neymar, Drake beats Usher too. You can check Usher’s here.
