Adonis the academic!

Drake's 2½-year-old son recently reached an educational milestone, heading off on his "first day of school" as shown in a sweet snapshot shared to the singer's Instagram feed Wednesday morning.

Already fashion-forward at such a young age (he turns 3 next month), Adonis rocks an all-black ensemble consisting of black sweatpants and a matching black hoodie decorated with a star print.

Finishing the look in black sneakers, the toddler also wears his light-colored locks in cornrows.

"First Day Of School ... The World Is Yours kid 🌍," Drake, 33, wrote in the caption.

Drake first posted photos of his son, whom he shares with artist and former adult-film star Sophie Brussaux, in March. Before that, he'd offered glimpses into his life as a dad — sharing shots of Adonis' artwork, Father's Day gifts and birthday party decorations — but never any photos of the little boy.

The "Toosie Slide" artist joined Lil Wayne for his second episode of Young Money Radio with Lil Wayne on Apple Music on May 1, during which he shared that posting photos of Adonis on social media was not a move he had "talked to anybody about or anything I planned."

"It was great to just share that with the world," Drake said of his Instagram post that was shared at the end of March. "I just woke up one morning and I was like, you know what? This is just something that I want to do."

"I want to be able to go places with my son and share memories with my son," he told Lil Wayne. "I don't want to feel like just because of a life choice I made to be a 'celebrity' that I got to make everybody live under this blanket ... I just wanted to free myself of that."

Drake confirmed the long-rumored news that he fathered a child with Brussaux on numerous tracks on his double album, Scorpion, which was released in June 2018.

Addressing his son for the first time, Drake went viral after rapping on the 2018 track "March 14", "I wasn't hiding my kid from the world/ I was hiding the world from my kid."

In June of this year, the "In My Feelings" rapper shared an adorable photo of his child to Instagram, wishing fellow dads around the world a "Happy Father's Day."

"Happy Fathers Day to all the real g'z handling business 🌍," Drake wrote alongside the snap, which showed his son cuddled up in bed wearing colorful star pajamas.
