Yeah, first Canadian artist I really enjoyed.
Classified is much better canadian artist if you are still looking for more.

TYPICAL internet shit. TYPICAL.

"aw i dont like X so i'll just compare him to rapper Y who i think is so much better and is "real hip-hop"


TYPICAL
Shut the fuck up, I like some Drake songs but Classified has more topics in his songs.

Yeah, Drake ain't versatile in the least. He raps about either A.) The price of fame or B.) Girls. Lol.

Drake is dope. Great hook singer, great songwriter; can make enjoyable hits that aren't corny (Forever, Best I Ever Had, Money To Blow...) and can create a real good atmosphere when it comes to track with more "substance" (Successful, Fear, The Calm). And yeah he raps about chicks a lot but it's not on some "fuck a bitch, I've fucked 3hoes last night...), it's about everday relationship stuff that you can relate to without sounding too corny (like that Timbo joint). He's like a more articulate Wayne.

What he needs to work on is the flow, it's too one dimensional, he should adapt to the beat more often.

The guy is a fraud, plain and simple. If I never new of the guy before and all of a sudden he showed up and I was 17 maybe I'd be behind him. But I remember this kid growing. I'd even see him from time to time in the fucking mall. He was the furthest from the streets as possible. He's a decent actor with an image he knows how to play, and when you've seen the real side for so long you can't get past it. For those who don't understand what I mean, imagine Carlton Banks all of a sudden decided to rap like a thug. That's how I know Aubrey Graham. Not that I think he's bad.

Drake is wack and yes Class is better....typical my ass, more like honest. Glad to see a Canadian in the limelight but i'm sorry he's not good and he's a pawn for the broads. Not hatin' on him getting money but as far as being a talented emcee.....i preffered him as Jimmy on Degrassi ha

His whole character is this guy from the streets. The way he talks, dresses, laughs. That is nothing like the guy he was all these years. You don't have to rap about murder to act like you're from the streets. R Kelly was very street with out being a thug rapper talking about killing people. Drake fakes it too much. I can tell it isn't legit.

LOL! at y'all being White.  you should learn to be more culturally diverse and understanding if you think a black man with a confident swagger is tryna be a thug.  that's like me saying every nice white man is a nerd bcuz he's nice.  lol @ the nieveness i c on here.

I'm from T-Dot and ain't proud of nothing that guy does for Canada. My close friend owns a restaurant/nite club on College street and he is always there when in Toronto. As a person he is a cool humble dude. He doesn't rep Canada or Toronto in his music and thats bullshit in my eyes. Every artist should give respect to were they come from and he doesn't seem too.


KARDINAL OFFISHALL  Reps T-DOT to the fullest and thats why he's loved here and can go were ever he wants without people tryin' to rob him !!!

I agree completely. We were supposed to open for Drake years ago but he didn't have the support, he ended up not doing the show....he's doing what he has to to make money which is fine but really he's nothing special around these parts.

I'm from Scarborough you idiot. It's more diverse than any place you've ever been. I'm pretty much the only white guy in every classroom I've ever been in my whole life. This has nothing to do with him being confident. He was very confident as Aubrey Graham aka Jimmy from Degrassi. He acts like he's street. In this case it's New York black street, as seen on TV and movies. He acts nothing like the thugs in Toronto, which are mainly Jamaican. He is acting. That's my point. There are plenty of confident black men in hop hop that don't fake their way into a thug image; Chuck D, KRS, Saul Williams.

And their are plenty of non-blacks that do the exact same thing Drake is doing faking being street; Eminem.

Drake is fresh. If you dont think he reps Canada listen to his mixtapes, he's always talking about Toronto.

I don't think anyone ever said he doesn't rep it. It's whether we want him to rep us that is the issue. Niel Young is still our top artist all time so far and I don't think he has anything to worry about from Drake.

Dont understan the hype.Hes an ok singer and an ok rapper but hes not very impressive.And hes a product of the machine that whole self made indepedant shit was a load of shit.

By the way the best canadian hip hop act is k-os,although honestly dudes music expands to more then just hip hop.If youve never listened to him your missing out

just what I was thinking!....

Yeah it's K-Os by mile as far as Canadian rappers, and even if you only include his rap music it's him by far. It's right up there with the best American rap of the last ten years.

Lol i dont understand how Neil Young has anything to do with this but whatever. You either like drake or you dont. I think he's Canada's best pop artist fersure. He has a presence on the mic, he talks about real shit (relationships etc) and he can actually spit. I like the metaphors and shit he uses.

We're talking about Canada's best music artists, and Young is the current greatest. I was just saying Drake will never get there. As far as best current Canadian pop stars; Even Nickelback wipes the floor with this guy, and I'm no huge Nickelback fan.
