Scroll through to discover the five most memorable memes of 2016.

Pretty Much Anything Drake

Drake is the definitive king of memes. Whether it was the humor inspired by his If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late album, parodies of his “Hotling Bling” song, or most recently a teensy Drake (courtesy of his Views album), the internet has been relentless with the rapper.
