With all the buzz surrounding Drake and his brilliant mic skills, I have never posted anything about him. Maybe it’s because I heard some of his early music. While impressive, I also caught a few light references to drugs and guns, and instantly slotted him in the young rappers talking about crap they know nothing about and have never done file. In other words: rapping for dollars. In true words: the biggest life sucking force of artistry.
So it’s a real good look to see Drake cutting through the easy, cheesy route, and, going forward, choosing to rap about what’s true to his life.
Drake revealed this in a recent interview with MTV Raw. In this clip he talks about his lyrical evolution, capping it with an example of how he will never have a woman just throw it in the bag.
