The Rapper that is..........So he has a new album out now and it has been topping the charts. So far so good, but what gives with this guy ? He sings, and raps. But he is still whack as far as Im concerned. LOL He is not Eminem, or Jay Z. His still is like a dysfunctional and self loathing form of expression which I find to be quite unappealing. It is unmotivational and weak with no creativity whatsoever.
The beats on some of his songs are ok as they remind me somewhat of the days of ole. However he does not have the fiery explosiveness of the great Em, and the swagger and verbal agility as Jay Z. I think he is vastly overrated and boring.
What do you think ? I am here.

Drake is OKAY for a commercial rapper. What i mean by this is he has a smooth flow and he creates catchy songs. He's the type of rapper that I can hear the song 5 times, and be able to rap along with it. A white girl can rap along with it. What does that say about his flow? lol

His lyrics lack susbtance. they are all about the money and women. He does have a certain style that has a catch. he has a melodic sort of voice that could work well if he stepped outside of the box and pushed himself.

Also, he cannot sing. I don't care what anyone says. Even in autotune, his singing is off. Nice try though, sounds better than half of the crap out there.

Put him up against any of the greats, though, and they would be rapping circles around his a$$.

He can't freestyle either which looses major points. Seriously, watch him on westwood. his "freestyles" are all on his phone, and he stops after i think the second one because he didn't have any material to match the beat they gave him. boo.

No he is not. Jay Z and Kanye are lightyears ahead of this guy.

In Headlines, Drake admits that being catchy is more important in terms of commercial success than having deep lyrics.

"Listen to you expressing all them feelings. Soap opera rappers - all you niggas sound like All My Children. And that's who you thinking is about to come and make a killing? I guess it really is just me, myself and all my millions."

I completely agree with lickdafoot's analysis, but I like Drake because he's clever. He is deserving of his commercial success because being catchy is all you need for that. Though witty, his lyrics aren't complex but his songs are fun to sing along to and tend to set the mood well (i.e., Headlines at parties, Marvin's Room when you're just reflecting and lounging about, etc.).

People have different expectations of hip-hop. Some people are thought to be great because they rap about "real" things or deep topics, such as Eminem. Others are revered for their flow, a.k.a. Jay Z. Some admire creativity, others lyrics, others one's voice, and still others care more about beats and overall song production. It really depends on the listener. You can rap about anything, be it money and hoes or the cultural struggle of a people. Drake brings up a good point though in that commercial rappers are more successful and popular than the artistic ones. Jay Z agrees, and explains in his song Moment of Clarity -

"I dumb down for my audience and double my dollars. They criticize me for it, yet they all yell HOLLA. If skills sold, truth be told I'd probably be lyrically Talib Kweli. Truthfully I wanna rhyme like Common Sense. But I did 5 mil - I ain't been rhyming like Common since. When your sense got that much in common and you been hustling since your inception - fvck perception - go with what makes sense."

I think that Drake intentionally "dumbs himself down" like Jay claims to for the sake of being simple and catchy (though simple can still be witty, which is fun). That is what sells. Some rappers are straight up dumb though and couldn't be better if they tried, whereas I think Drake could. However keep in mind that some in society also have this stupid perception that the only "deep" topics one could talk about is rising out of poverty or something, whereas again you could really rap about anything. Just because a song isn't about politics or being poor doesn't mean it's necessarily frivolous either. Biggie is my favorite rapper, and I love that not all of his songs are about important ish. He just talks about the everyday life of a black guy in BK at that time, which is not only relateable content to a lot of people but I think reflects what art is truly about in general - one's own interpretation of their subjective human experience. It need not be serious or intellectual all the time in order to have merit.

So again, while I don't think Drake is the best by any means, I think he's awesome at what he does and deserves his success.

Drake looks like tall sloth that has been up for two weeks on a beer binge. Not a good look. Taylor Swift is better than Drake (Kanye is a drunk, racist and arrogant)!! LOL!! I like 2pac and Biggy for rappers and they are "dead" or hiding away some where IDK!!

Personally, I am not fond of rap music at all.

I much prefer System of a Down as much of their songs are political in nature( B.Y.O.B., Toxicity, ect.
This signature is full of timey wimey wibbly wobbly stuff...

People who hate rap do not understand the music.
