@TJE, what is that supposed to show? Because I'm trying to imagine how this picture at all would be worth something in a discussion on trying to figure out someone's height.

5-10-5'10.5 max to me judging all evidence.I think your over an inch rob for Drake. Maybe in shoes he's at 5'11.75 but not barefoot
Shredder said on 1/Oct/16
He looks over a flat 5'11 in all those photos MD. Sure he might max out at 5'11.5.

This just isn't how a near-6-foot guy looks.
sam said on 27/Sep/16
This guy is easy to downgrade because his stance and build always doesn't faver him. Rob's estimation is right or very near within fractions.
sammmy said on 27/Sep/16
Check out the pics with Drake amd 5"8 Bryson Tiller. Drake is like 5"10.5 at most lol. Just a self conscious guy like most celebs
king said on 21/Sep/16
Drake has the build and proportions of a 5'9 guy.
samuel said on 14/Sep/16
Rob in most photos he doesn't have a good posture and adding to that he is somewhat thick. I think thats why lot of people in this page downgrade considerably, like 5'10. Anything below 5'11 is just impossible!
Editor Rob: a lot of rappers I've noticed have variable postures. I am sure he wouldn't be less than 5ft 11, he seems too tall for under that range.
SHORTY said on 11/Sep/16
Rob, any chance this guy's absolute evening low could be 5'11.5" if he were up and active a full day?
Editor Rob: at times trying to get a sense of his height is hard because he generally has a loose style. Measuring this guy might be a surprise, it could be why 5ft 11.5 or 6ft isn't impossible either way.
Addison said on 11/Sep/16
next to niall horan he doesnt look that tall and niall is a solid 5'8, niall needs an upgrade or drake needs a downgrade. look at pics on nialls instagram!

There is no way that every girl would be close to 6feet. They're all almost his height and some taller. This guy is probably 5'10" and typically wears Jordan's
samuel said on 21/Aug/16
I think he is 6ft most of the day, probably fraction below it before bed like he is listed here.
Rob what do you think?
Editor Rob: I think if you measured him, almost 6ft afternoon is reasonable to believe.
Aaron Zamora said on 3/Aug/16
He looked about 1 inch shorter than French Montana and Drake had sandles on. Either Drake is taller or French is about 6'1 tops.
Clint said on 23/Jul/16
Gonna have to go with 5'11" (180 cm), maybe a decent 181 on a good day but he's definitely closer to 5'11" than 6'0"
lazare said on 29/Jun/16
It's strange because he can look 6'2 or maybe 6'3 near listed 206 cm Brandon X. Ingram.
lazare said on 27/Jun/16
for me it's a true 5'10-11
joe joe said on 24/Jun/16
Rob Mike Will is listed everywhere as 183cm but along side drake he always looks a good inch taller than Drake. you should get up a mike will page.
TJE said on 16/Jun/16

I think you're underestimating how much height Drake is dropping, but even then almost 6'0 is a stretch. The 5'11.5 listing was better IMO.
not_bad said on 12/Jun/16
He is definitely 6 foot. He is towering over 5'8 rihanna
truth said on 22/May/16
He just looks 5ft11/180cm to me.
MD said on 15/May/16
Have to correct something. In my 8/Apr/16 post I have college basketball player Tyler Ulis as a measured 5'8". He was measured at 5'8" barefoot in 2014 and 2015, but he was recently measured at the NBA combine at 5'8.75" barefoot, so it looks like he either grew (it'd be a pretty late growth spurt but not impossible), or the combine simply measures more accurately that the camps he was last measured at.

Click Here

It still makes the near 6'0" listings for Drake a bit much.
samuel said on 3/May/16
Nothing less than 6'. His stance and posture in most pics make him look shorter. And he is quite muscular
Anon said on 2/May/16
I've noticed on several of his Instagram posts where he's barefoot he's got really short legs. Like midget-seque.
Panda said on 27/Apr/16
Come on guys we all know Drake is well over 12 feet tall (366 cm) since that's how tall he is sitting down. He looks that tall on his 'Views from the 6' album cover.

I'm joking btw. Might've not been obvious.
MD said on 8/Apr/16
Lowry is listed at both 6'0" and 6'1", though I am unable to find his measured height. More to the point, while not much is wrong with the photo (just a your typical camera tricks to limit height difference between people if wildly different heights), Drake is simply not all tall as listed. He's lucky to be a full 5'11" barefoot. Again with a measured 5'8" Tyler Ulis.

Click Here

Drake could be barefoot and Ulis in full-on boots (I think its' clear they are on level ground), and Drake still isn't almost 6'0".
HRD said on 7/Apr/16
@Shabba Drake's legs arent straight, as he has a wide stance. If you consider that drake could be the same or slightly taller than lowry

Shabba said on 30/Mar/16
Recently appeared on a cover with Kyle Lowry of the Raptors. Lowry is his uniform and Drake is in a suit and dress shoes. Drake is also slightly closer to the camera. They appear close in height, with Lowry having a noticeable advantage. Lowry is apparently barely six feet flat.

He has terrible posture recently... looking like a hunchback most of the time
grizz said on 25/Feb/16
5'11 max. He was noticeably shorter (1.5-2 inches) than Taylor Swift in 2013 VMAs back in her hunchback days. A weak 6footer with Timberlands (Drake practically sleeps with them!) would be even to then-5'8.5 Taylor with stronger heels.
EzioAuditore711 said on 9/Feb/16
Closer to 5'10" than 6'2".
sfs324 said on 29/Jan/16
Drake always registers as tall-ish when he's by himself but compared to everyone else he's considerably shorter. Doesn't get dwarfed because of his physical stature though. I could buy 5'10.5 for him.
badshah said on 28/Jan/16
Drake is almost 2" shorter than cp3
MD said on 27/Jan/16
And interesting photo to discuss. Now, there is no way he's only as tall as this guy, but here is Drake on what appears to be a level floor with Tyler Ulis, a University of Kentucky basketball player consistently measured at 5'8" without shoes:

Click Here

Let's take the lean of Drake head into account, and give Ulis a major footwear advantage. Heck, let's say Ulis is in boots and Drake is barefoot. I'm sticking with my opinion that he honestly can't be over 5'11". He has a strong boot game, but there is no way he's almost 6'0" flat.
Willes190 said on 28/Dec/15
Drake: 182,5 cm
Brown: 183,5 cm
SB said on 29/Nov/15
Absolutely above average and a pretty big dude but yeah, there's plenty of pics and vids out there where you can easily see he isn't quite at that 6ft mark, nevermind 6'1. He really loves wearing timberlands boots and other large soled shoes too.

MD said on 19/Oct/15
He is not over 5'11", that much is for sure. 5'10" is a bit too low, probably, but he's much closer to 5'11" than he is 6'0".

He has footwear advantage next to 180cm Russell Wilson. I don't see an almost 6ft0 guy, more flat 5'11.

Rob i'd like to hear your thought on these
[Editor Rob: I think with any celebrity, the more you look, the more a range they seem to appear...with Drake, you could certainly pick a bunch of photos where he looks 5ft 11, but there is ample amounts where he looks nearer 6ft.]
HRD said on 17/Sep/15
Jimmy Fallon's hair in that photo can be very decieveing and make him look taller but drake look slightly taller if actually focus at the top of their heads. But I will admit he is no taller than 5'11.5 unless jimmy is really wearing lifts in his shoes
MD said on 11/Sep/15
@HRD, that pic shows closer to 5'11" than 6'0", and it's really in line with the pictures of him with 6'1" Carson Daly.
Dmax said on 11/Sep/15
So Drake is 5'11.75 barefeet and he has boots on in that photo with Jimmy Fallon who is in dress shoes and yet looks about the same height? Odd either Drakes listing is a little bit taller than his actual height or Jimmy Fallon wears lifts.
HRD said on 8/Sep/15

180cm for Drake.
Borobridge said on 5/Aug/15
Yeah he really is dwarfed by Djokovic. He's leaning a bit but so is Djoko. And Drake always wears Timbs or sneakers with big ass heels. 181cm is fair I'd say.
6'3.75 said on 23/Jul/15
check his recent pictures at Wimbledon with Novak Djokovic, Novak has a significant height advantage even though Drake is leaning in towards him. A very interesting picture for a 6'1.75 guy to have such an advantage over a guy who is considered 6'2 and even 6'4 from the comments below, regardless of the posture differences in the picture too.

Drake's peak height is probably 6ft-6.25ft IMO

He's not 6ft2 lol. He's shorter as he appears.
Steveo7 said on 4/Jun/15
@MD, that photo you put up of him with beckham... Drake is taller than him in that picture by at least 0.75inch!? So a solid 6ft IMO. (Unless you include beckham's hair in which case drake is probably 0.25inch taller)

At one time, Drake was listed as 6'4" on IMBD.

He should have never been raised back up. Not a great picture, but here he is with a measured 5'11.25" (most likely a morning measurement) Odell Beckham, Jr. who plays in the NFL:

Click Here

I'm telling you, if he's anything above 5'11", it's a quarter-inch and that's it. He's not nearly 6'0" and the other evidence (particularly the photo of him with 6'1" Carson Daly where he's even likely in boots) shows that.

Height183 said on 19/Mar/15
I wouldn't call Big Aubrey 5'11'' just because of that one picture next to Carson. There are a TON of pictures and videos where he looks 6'0''. He is an inch taller than 5'11'' Trey Songz. Rob's listing is probably spot on.
MD said on 19/Mar/15
I wouldn't put him as low as 5'10", but I have to say that Kendrick Lamar is closer to 5'4" than he is 5'5". He's another guy that is using the 2" rule.

Solid 5'11" but near 6 foot? Doubt it.
Bishop said on 14/Mar/15
I completely agree, MD. Rob's last listing of 5'11.5" was pretty much the top-end of the range for him and even that was generous. I'm not sure where he has ever looked nearer 6ft except for that time with Kimmel (who's another one that's over-listed) but with Carson Daly, Jay-Z, Russell Willson, and Durant, he looks no more than 181 cm.
MD said on 13/Mar/15

Even if Drake were to straighten up, that is two inches, at least, and Drake had a slightly footwear advantage at that event (New Years 2011). Drake is slightly above average height at the very most.

I'd thought I'd provide enough proof through the months and years to show he was closer to 5'11" than he is a 6'0".
truth2 said on 31/Jan/15
In my opinion he is 5ft11 at least but not a full 6ft0. More appropriate question: is he barely 180cm or more of a weak six footer (182cm).
Bluntio 6'1.5 said on 28/Jan/15
I think he's somewhere between 178cm and 181cm nothing more and nothing less, but that's my opinion and I could be wrong.

Here's a pic of him with Didier Drogba (189cm)

He has a really bad posture on this one and we can't see their footwear, but assuming he's always in those huge nba shoes...

6 foot. lol at who was trying to say 5 9.
Dan said on 23/Dec/14
Idk why. But Drake does not strike off as a tall guy to me. He dosen't seem tall. I'd say he's around 5'10-5'11. He used to claim 6'2 though. I've seen a lot of pictures of him with other people and he looks fairly average. But maybe it's because he slouches heavily when posing for photos.

It's like talking to a brick wall.
TJE said on 17/Dec/14
Are you kidding me? James and Josh has very similar hair lengths. OK Josh's MIGHT be a few mm longer but it's not enough to fool you.

Also, like I said, your pics demonstrated 0.75 at the most. I mean Trey's eye level is hardly any lower than Drake's, in fact he's looking straight at the very bottom of Drake's eyes. Idk about you but last time I checked, regualar human eyes would not measure one inch in any dimension, let alone the 2 inches height required to make your claim plausible.

A real inch difference would mean that the shorter lad would be looking more in the lower part of the nose, which is implied in my pic. Here's some more examples of a one inch difference:

That second picture you posted of Trey and Drake show them being nearly exactly the same height. Not even sure where you see an inch. And, yes, Trey is not 6'0" and I'm still surprised to see him listed as such. Here he is with 5'11"

This guy is near 6 foot tall, this is perfect listing for him.
Anon said on 18/Oct/14
5'10-5'11 flat. Always wears ridiculously chunky footwear which gives like 2 inches plus. Literally in every photo of this guys he's in Jordan's/boots never in normal or flattish footwear ever. Proportionally seems quite diminutive aswell definately legs on the shorter side. The pic with. Six one and a half jayz speaks volumes. As he's easily. 3 inches shorter.

Drake is definitely in the 5'10"-5'11" range. He was only a few inches taller than the 5'8" Serena Williams when they were in pictures.
Mitch said on 12/Jul/14
Rob, you should put up a pic of Drake and Johnny Manziel as they're friends so it'd be easy to find. Also, Manziel is a AUTHENTICALLY MEASURED 5'11 3/4" so it would help determine Drake's height.
teej said on 2/Jul/14
I agree, i think drake is 5'10 he used to be listed as that height, when he was semi-famous like in 2008, then he was listed as 6'2, now at 6'0. I admit he can pull off a 'tall' look standing on his own. But from seeing him with other celebs, i think he's 5'10

Carson Daly is at least 2" taller than this guy. Now, because he stacks up so well, I see his height looks to have been boosted, when the smart thing would have simply told you to take down Kimmel. Drake is 5'11.5" at the very most.

He didn't look that tall in degrassi but he was still growin. He has the body of a 180cm guy. I used to think he was 5 foot 9 because he is quite muscular and never looked like a tall guy. 182cm is about right. No way he is 188cm. Talented though.
WAT said on 24/Sep/13
Rob, there is a clip of Drake, Snoop, some other rapper filmed by Minaj where Drake says about 6 feet tall and makes that typical hand shake which implies more or less. That is basically a direct claim. Almost 6'0 then...maybe even a little shorter

In several groupie tales about him, they mention him as "6 feet 2 inches of a man", I met him last year, I am barely 5 feet 2 inches, i got up maybe up to his chest. He was in flats, so was I.So I bet 6'1 for this guy

Drake looks about 5feet 10.75 inches to be exact,doesn't look a tall guy but just about average..
5ft10guy said on 19/Jun/13
Drake claims 6ft2 three times once in a song second in a video clip in which he compares his height to snoop dogg and 2 chains both who are 6ft4 guys, third in a radio interview.Nicki manaj says Drake how tall are you? Drake says''6ft2,6ft1''he goes lower because of snoop and 2 chains being much taller. Snoop dogg says about 6ft and 2 chains says yeah about 6ft Drake then confirms with the two rappers.6ft is more towards Drake height he wore sneakers in that video with snoop. But if asked he would probably say 6f1-6ft2 like in the video
teej said on 13/Jun/13
He does tower rihanna because he's wearing heels in his sneakers, look at mine and Buzz's coments below, rio ferdinand is 189cm 6ft2.5 and he towers drake, and in addition drake has a foot wear advantage whereas ferdinand is wearing a thin soled shoe. Drake used to be listed at 5'10 now he's 6' hmm i doubt it. Besides 6' isnt even tall nowadays, im 6ft1 and i find myself to be slightly above average, id say 'tall' is 6ft3 and above, however im born in the 90's so our generation is a lot taller than older ones
Nate said on 12/Jun/13
Rob, What happened?? what made you change your mind?? if Drake is 5'11.5 then Trey Songz is not 6 feet but 5'11 at most..Do you have evidence?

I have seen him with rio ferdinand also 'Buzz' he was towered and your right, he could even be 5'9!
Buzz said on 26/May/13
Drake is definetley 5'9, he stood next to manchester uniteds rio ferdinand, who is 189cm and has been measured by a laser scan barefoot and he is 189cm which is a high 6'2. And everyone knows rio is a legit 6'2 even though he can look taller as other sports men and celebs exaggerate their height. Drake was towered by rio by atleast 5 inches, drake also had a footwear advantage. Id say drakes 5'9 flat.
teej said on 25/May/13
Drake is 5'10 that is his true and honest height. And he was from listings i have seen when he was 22 it says 5'10. I doubt very much hes grown after that im 17 and 6'1 been pretty much the same height for over a year now. Drake can argubly look upto 6'2 in his videos, i honestly thought he was a 'tall' guy but from seeing him with other celebs hes average, and from a video i have seen on nicki minaj tv, nicki minaj asks him how tall he is? He says im about 6ft. He said 'about'. And moved his hand to indicate 'slightly' Which indicates he must be under 6 foot. He also stood next to snoop dogg and 2 chainz comparing their heights together, and he was towered over snoop who is a strong 6'3 had about 5 inches on him and 2 chainz who id say is a strong 6'5 towered him also. Drake seems to be concerned about his height alot, i notice he always wears huge shoes and stands straight when taking pics with tall celebs.
Drizzle said on 24/May/13

Jay is supposed to be 6'2. Doesnt seem like a 2 inch difference. Drake seems to only wear boots and high top sneakers. Could be a strong candidate for having additional support in his shoes but who knows.

Terrance Ross is 6'6 like Kevin Durant is 6'9.
Both were measured at that height barefoot. Ross likely has shoe adv. over Drake in that pic as well.

That said, I saw Drake over that same weekend, and he's looks much closer to 5'11 than 6'0.

drake is def atleast 6'0. i met him on saturday nite during ciaa. i was surprised at how tall he was and how attractive he is in person.
HeightFluctuates said on 24/Feb/13
Looking at that Carson Daly pic... LOL there is no way Drake is 6 foot. That is not the height difference of 1 inch, come on ROB! And why does he get listed at 6'2" - for all of those people asking. Most of Nike shoes do offer over an inch in the sole - plus cussion... rounding off, maybe around 1.5 inches. Add about another inch in hair... ok so now he has about 2.5 inches to add to his height. The guy must be around 5'11"... maybe a hair over. Now add 2.5 so he's around 6'1.5"... he rounds off to 6'2" lol... he may appear around that height but he's nowhere near it barefoot to scalp, standing straight. Drake probably doesn't know any better, his PR spokes person doesn't either, so his height is given at 6'2", only to stand next to 6'1" Daly a few years later and get ridiculed on this website... Tell the truth from day one Drake
Rah 6\'0\" said on 21/Feb/13
Everyone plz go on youtube and watch math hoffa vs pat slay rap battle. Drake was a special guest and he gets towered by most of the crowd. Either everyone in toronto is over six feet tall or drake wears lifts. Downgrade needed maybe. Looked 5'10" to me average height.

I just saw Drake at an LCBO on Yonge St. in Toronto with his crew. I basically walked right up to his crew and asked them if I could grab a pic of him, or with him and they said no. Anyway at one point I was about 2 feet away or less and Drake is SHORTER than me and I'm about 5"11.5, though I was wearing dress shoes that have a one inch heel. So Drake is between 5"11 to 6"0 but NO taller!

im about 6'0 1/2 bare foot and 6'1 1/2 maybe 6'2 with regular vans... anyways i saw drake and even though i was kinda far from him, i could still see that was at least 3 inches taller than him... so hes about 5'11 or 5'11 1/2 but not 6'0
johnnyfive said on 30/Aug/12
I haven't met Drake but I have met Carson Daly before, back in his TRL days, and Carson is about 6'1 to 6'1 and a half. He was about a half an inch to an inch taller than me (I'm 6'0.5) Drake most definitely looks about 2 and a half inches shorter than Carson so therefore I say he's 5'11 flat, about the same height as Chris Brown.

Rob, can you take another look at the pictures displayed in the thread over the past few weeks? I think this is an overlisting.

With a legitimately 6'1" Carson Daly:

Click Here

In the full set of pictures, you can see that Drake is wearing some thick-soled gym shoes, but Carson's footwear is not visible. I'd assume he was wearing dress shoes with what he's wearing.

I'd only peg Drake at 5'11" absolutely tops.
Nee said on 14/Jan/12
I went to his concert & when he came outside I seen him he was shorter than I expected, he was about 5'10 & I walked up to Machine Gun Kelly who was at the concert too, & He was tall about 6'2" or 6'3" & Drake is about 4inches shorter than him, like in this pic Click Here

@Alicia - Good thinking,nice to find a girl who can gauge height.
@Danielle - A - can`t see feet/ground.B - most models are also upgraded - a friend of mine recently became a model - she`s 5`9 barefoot but gets listed at 5`11. I think 6ft flat is fair for Drake,he`s nothing over though.

Alicia said on 8/Dec/11
I think this height is accurate. I have personally known him for several years and have definitely stood face to face with him. I used to see sites claiming him to be 6'2" all the time and I knew they were totally false. I'm 5'7" (but usually wear heels so I appear 5'9" or 5'10") and I give him about 6'0" - definitely not taller tho, and no shorter than 5'11" - but I believe he really does stand at 6'0" tall.
Godred said on 3/Dec/11
@mobymoby - Yep, but he doesn`t measure up to the people he`s been photo`d with.He`s barely scraping 6 ft flat.

Seymour said on 30/Jul/11
Umm, you idiot. I was AGREEING with the website that he was 6 feet. I said I'm 5 11 and he does NOT look my height. I have seen him in pictures with many other celebs, and he looks a legit 6 footer. Work on your reading comprehension, bup.
harry said on 28/Jul/11
look you can't tell how tall drake is by looking at him on the tv. Seymour you dumb **** you can't just say he doesn't look your height. you are stupid as ****. If the website says he is six foot, that is probably how tall he is.
Seymour said on 28/Jul/11
You're absolutely right about baseball listings being bunk. The player in question, Tony Sipp, is clearly not a 6 footer. He looks like a weak 5 11 to me. But say Sipp is 5 10.5, from what I saw Drake is 5 11.5 at minimum.
MD said on 27/Jul/11
Just something for reference, but baseball listings are as much bunk as most sports listings. I've seen a picture of San Francisco Giant's Brian Wilson with Mark DeRossa and Barry Zito all in street clothes. Zito and Wilson are both listed as being 6'2", but in the picture, Mark DeRossa (listed at 6'0" even) is clearly taller than both of them.

Seymour said on 26/Jul/11
Drake threw out the first pitch at the Indians game the other day and was clearly about an inch taller than 6' feet listed Indians pitcher Tony Sipp. I think 5 11's out of the question for him, I'm a true 5 11 and he does not look my height.

@Andrew - this is a site for the sole purpose of guaging height, get over it
@Conner - Try measuring yourself again barefoot - or get a clue how to estimate someone`s height - He is clearly 6 ft max, next to the genuine 6`2 and 6`3 celebs he`s been photographed standing next to.
natnizel said on 1/Jul/11
Click Here i would say that drake's height is about 5'11.5-6'0' because in this video drake is with 6'3'-6'4' snoop dogg pause this video at 3:05 and then you will see that there is a 3-4 inch height difference between the two hip hop stars
JBJ said on 30/Jun/11
Drake is not 6'3 lmao. So Drake looked 6'3 standing next to Terrence J? I could buy 6'0 even but 6'3 is ridiculous. Look at the picture with him and Jamie Foxx. No way is he 6'3. More like 5'11. I question whether some of you have actually seen a legit 6'3 person.
connor said on 29/Jun/11
When he came to Cleveland I went to his concert and I am 6'2 and I met him outside of the concert and he definitely had 1 inch on me if not more.
Andrew said on 28/Jun/11
He is 6'3 because on the BET awards the man standing next Keri Hilson said he was 6'0. And when Nicki Minaj won the award drake was standing next to the man and he was towering him! You could see the 3 inch difference! For sure. All the people saying 6'2 is pushing it y'all are probably really short. So stop talking about people and being insecure.
Godred said on 28/Jun/11
I agree with Rob that Rio is around the 6`3 mark,he is however definately not the 6`5 he is being listed at lately, I`m seriously starting to think football players get measured in their boots.Drake is 6 ft max, might be just under.

in that picture drake is wearing a suit, so i would assume he is wearing shoes, and kid cudi is most probably wearing thick high top trainers as he usually does. and taking away the frootwear advantage and the fact that drake was slouching i still see a 1.5inch difference. so anywhere between 5"11.5-6ft flat would be good for drake.

I used to think that 6'0" was correct, but the more I'm seeing of him, the shorter he looks. He is on par with 5'10"ish Trey Songz. He's only been looking slightly over average, lately, and I'm talking by not more than an inch.

Totally with you. I think he's maybe 5'10". 6'3" John Mayer looks like he could see over the top of Drake's head (at least a 5" difference). And 5'9"-ish Foxx is barely shorter.

You can use the basketball as a reference. It is 9.5" tall; Drake is therefore about 5'6" in that photo.
