iight so I'm a little bored right now so I'm bout to drop this post right quick. But if you aint know by now, Drake is my favorite artist.
A female friend of mine (Reese) insisted I was ridin because Drake is my favorite artist, but me no give A fuck. Right now, at the moment, next to kanye, no one fills the track with as much heart as Drake does. His vulnerability is partly why so many people feel as though they are connected to Drake, that's why so many people practically kill themselves just to express just how long they have known about Drake, to see just who is the bigger fan. Humors me, Cuz i remember back when not so much people knew him (way prior to Wayne), I would let people hear what i was listening to on my earphones in class, and they would kinda be feeling it, then as SOON as i say he reps Toronto, they be like "wtf, u mean CANADA NIGGA?..get the fuck outta here" and they drop the headphones and walk away. now look at them SAME niggas, hopin right on the wagon. I dont mind, it's not even my place to mind that bs.
Like He said in his song Uptown:
"its okay, you can run and tell ya friends that I'm on...best believe i understand it's okay."
The guy's name is in peoples mouths like no other. Highly anticipated. Now, i MAY just be ridin..but i honestly don't give a fuck, cuz Drake is just about THE best artist right now. I'm not saying he's the best lyricist (no eminem, or biggie or deep thought provoking rapper who uses super clever word play, although he does use word play...like any decent rapper), and im not sayin he's even the best rapper...he's the all around best artist right now, cuz through quality music, he makes u feel like you actually KNOW this nigga. "put ur heart and soul into your passion" he does just that... The way he appears transparent on the track just through words, he makes the connection, and nobody can take that away from him. Again, if i'm riding...i dont.. give... a damn.. I'll even say dat shit proudly... really i'm standing behind my favorite artist as millions of fans stand behind JayZ as the best rapper alive.
Now when "Thank Me Later" drops mid to late summer... I BET it's a wrap. I put money on it that it will be deamed as one of hiphop's greatest albums (probably not immediately, but when the respect comes, it's a sure thing...that album will be widely accepted as one of the greatest hiphop albums) And i have a weird feeling that it will be just like almost every Great rappers album (just as Marshall Mathers LP and Reasonable Doubt and Born to Die and many other FIRST albums..it happens). The first album is usually ALWAYS the best album, from a popular standpoint.
but um... yeah Drake is nice... I'm done.
and I hope Tslack come through with that hook up for the May 2nd show, though... Lord Willin' lol
excuse any mistakes..i didn't proofread
