Drew Desbordes, or as some may know him, Druski or Druski2Funny, is an American comedian and internet personality. He broke through the entertainment industry in early 2017 when he posted his first comedy sketch on his Instagram account. Druski's net worth is $1 million.

Early Life

Drew Desbordes was born on September 12, 1994, to parents Cheryl Desbordes, a state department worker, and David McLain Desbordes, a pilot and a former captain in US Air Force and a major in the National Guard.

His place of birth was Baltimore, Maryland, but he grew up in Gwinett County in Georgia with his parents and little sister, Nadia.

Drewski had other plans for his future in his early days. He always knew he was the class clown when he attended Shiloh High School but didn't care much about it. He had a dream of becoming a sportscaster.

After Drew's teenage years, he went to two different colleges hoping to get a higher education. Still, that water quickly went under the bridge when he realized he was becoming depressed and maybe college just wasn't a thing he wanted to do.

His parents weren't supportive when Drew announced that he was about to quit college and pursue a Youtube career. Luckily, all his classmates were incredibly supportive and patted him on the back to show their support.

Any loving parent would be concerned about their child's future and career, so Drew understood his parents but didn't back out of his plans. Instead, he chose to follow his dreams.

Rising To Fame

Making a living out of social media entertainment is challenging, especially if you're a newbie with no following and recognition.

Druski knew this very well, but he also had confidence that with a lot of determination, a lot of time spent making sketches, and carefully selecting ideas for his next project, he could be one of the few that broke through the algorithm.

In 2017, Drew finally got the courage to pursue his dream and started posting comedy videos on his Instagram page. The bad thing about the internet is that people tend to lack originality since everything has already been done by someone else.

This is due to no one's fault, there is a lot of content on the internet, and you have to try your hardest to be original and funny enough to get recognized.

Druski's success didn't come to him overnight; it took him over a year before one of his videos became viral, and even then, people still didn’t know him well enough.

When fishing for something way out of reach, you always have to have a backup plan for when things don't work out the way you want them to. That's precisely what Drew did while he was waiting for his success to come.

While he's not proud of this, Drewski said on multiple occasions that he used to be a scammer, not because he wanted to but because he had to earn more money.

That phase quickly passed because Drew didn't feel good about doing that to innocent people and was very bad at it.

Now that he was not working nor studying, he realized that the best thing to do was move back with his mother, who was still not supportive of his choice to leave college and start working elsewhere.

He was a waiter in Red Lobster for a while, trying to make money through honest work. In 2019, Drewski hit the jackpot when one of his Instagram skits went remotely viral and gained some recognition. After that, things started turning around for this young entrepreneur.

From Posting Instagram Skits To Being Drake's Close Friend

Even though Drew took his time rising to fame, he was becoming huge on the hip-hop grounds with the speed of light. No one knows how Druski became the most loving comedian in the hip-hop industry; he made friends with Lil Yachty, Drake, Jack Harlow, and many more.

Professional athletes like famous boxers Floyd Mayweather, and Odell Beckam Jr, a professional football player, even invited Druski to live with them because they were huge fans and wanted his energy and charisma around them. Who wouldn't want a funny person lighting up the mood all the time?

With the help of his new famous friends, Druski found himself rising to the top quicker than lightning. "GQ Magazine" even called him HIP-HOP'S New Favorite Comedian [1] In 2020, Drew appeared in Drake's new music video, "Laugh Now, Cry Later," where he gained even more followers and fans.

Following his debut in the "Laugh Now, Cry Later" music video, Druski showed up in another video of a famous rapper, Lil Yachty, of which Drake was also a part.

Druski's Impact In The Hip-Hop Industry

It's only natural for hip-hop's favorite comedian to be involved in the industry. Since rising to fame and becoming huge on all social media platforms, Druski started looking up to his famous friends and experimenting with music.

Drew claims that his involvement in the music industry is nothing serious and that he only makes music because he likes it; he's not planning to become a famous artist anytime soon.

Besides making music, Drew started his label called "Coulda Been Records," where he goes on Instagram Live and scouts for talented/untalented people, giving them exposure no matter how bad they are and overall just being funny messing with them.

The idea behind "Coulda Been Records" started as a serious business idea but quickly turned into something satirical and sarcastic. In an interview with "Complex Magazine [2] , "Druski explained that the best part of shows like "America's Got Talent" is to watch people screw up; that's how "Coulda Been Records" became what it is now.

Fun Facts You Didn’t Know About Druski

He Almost Didn’t Graduate High School On Time.

Druski was never a bad kid that didn’t want to go to school. However, he was the class clown who wanted to make people laugh. But being funny doesn’t get you a high school degree, so Druski found himself in a pickle.

Being the son of two highly educated people, his parents didn’t take his failure lightly. His mother was often getting notes from teachers about his clown-like behavior and how he was often distracted in school and distracting other students.

Because of his lack of interest in education, it seemed like Drew wasn’t going to graduate on time with his peers. Luckily, his Spanish teacher helped him graduate when she handed him a simple test with two years of credit for his final exam.

He almost Got Kicked Out Of His Home.

When Druski’s parents found out that their son was about to drop out of college because of his depression and passion for pursuing entertainment full-time, you can say that they were livid.

Drew’s parents are academically inclined and expected the same from their children. His father is a “Howard” graduate, award-winning captain, and Major in the National Guard.

His mother, Cheryl Desbordes, has one bachelor’s degree and one master’s degree in public health. So, naturally, she was very pissed off at her son when he quit college and moved back in with her.

She felt that Drew didn’t try hard enough even though Cheryl spent so much money putting him through college. Now, Druski’s parents are supportive of his career and the tremendous progress he has made, but like every academic parent, they hope he will finish his degree.

Druski Owns A Clothing Line

Another one of Druski’s endeavors is owning a clothing line. While the clothing line is still new to the public, the clothing pieces sell out instantly. The name of his online clothing store is called 4lifers.

Conclusion

Drew Desbordes, aka Druski, is a 28 years old American artist and comedian with a net worth of $1 million. Druski came to success in 2019 when he met Drake and had a cameo in his music video "Laugh Now, Cry Later."

After his debut in Drake's video, things started going very well for him career-wise. He became friends with many celebrities, especially the ones in the hip-hop industry.
