Early Life and Education: Growing up in Toronto

It is unfamiliar to the public whether Ryan ever decided to further his studies by enrolling into college in pursuit of a degree. According to the currently available data, he is not thought to have any degree.

Career: A Musical Mystery

There is no specific information that could explain what exactly Ryan does for a living, but he is known to be part of the ‘OVO Crew’, a nickname that fans gave to the members of OVO Sound who are closest to Drake. Aside from that, Ryan is, as was mentioned, related to Drake, and he can often be seen in the singer’s company during public happenings.

What is OVO Sound?

Created under the acronym “October’s Very Own”, OVO Sound is a recording label that hip hop artist Drake personally founded in 2012, alongside Oliver El-Khatib and Noah Shebib, based in Toronto, Canada. Their distribution is handled by Warner Music Group’s Warner Bros. Records. Those known as ‘OVO Crew’ are mostly associates of the label who spend a good portion of their private life around Drake, and Ryan is an important part of this group. When it comes to his professional contributions to the label, it is only known that he, alongside another ‘OVO Crew’ member, OB O’Brien, came up with the idea of featuring a drug store in the music video for Drake’s single entitled “Started From the Bottom”.

What else does he do?

According to all of the information currently available across the credible sources, Ryan is mostly occupied by being near Drake during parties, concerts and other activities. This is his main form of media exposure, and it is generally speculated that Ryan’s real job is simply to make Drake look better to the fans by being in his social group, though there is also the fact that they are cousins and childhood friends, so this belief is yet to be confirmed. In either case, this is Ryan’s current occupation, and he is not known to have engaged in any other activities.

Born Shannon Ashley Mitchell under the sign of Aries on the 10th of April 1987, in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, Shay Mitchell – also nicknamed ‘Shay Buttah’ and ‘Shay Mitch’ – is an actress, author, model and entrepreneur of Scottish, Irish and Filipino descent. She was raised apparently an only child in her birthplace by her Scots and Irish father Mark Mitchell, and her Filipina mother Precious Garcia, both of whom are employed in finance-related professions.
