Dan: One of the biggest appeals of Drake’s music is his lyrical relatability. As his legend grows and his brand grows bigger, when do you think Drake’s raps eventually become unrelatable?

Drew: It’s true that Drake is, in some ways, relatable. I don’t personally think that the range of emotions he presents (i.e. “heartache” in the proportion that he does) is very full or relates to me per se, but his willingness to explore and lament those feelings is certainly palpable to most people. I think his arrogant, macho posturing and typical rap bluster is less relatable, and he might be best suited staying away from that if he truly wants to differentiate himself. It seems empty and status-obsessed in comparison to his other, more complicated emotional inquiries.


  1. I think that he’s going after Kendrick. All these talk about Kendrick’s Control verse got him pretty riled up. I am sure Drake won’t be able to resist fighting back.

  2. No? Calling Drake’s music “great” is my opinion. Why, in your opinion, is that not an accurate assessment?

  3. Drake is a user, once he found that Wayne no longer serves his s4it, he moves on to find another to leech from.

  4. not here to argue. it’s just that i would have expected you would be calling it as it is. drake would be good, and i am being generous with that. but in light of other songs and albums coming out, some without a major label backing, it makes you think twice. not a drake hater, really, i’ve enjoyed drizzy’s songs.

  5. Not arguing, just debating. That’s what this forum is for. All debates are welcome and strongly encouraged.

    While yeah there is a lot of good independent hip-hop out there, not sure what that has to do with Drake.

  6. 40 should really expand his horizons. Drake knows he’s got a good thing going there and he’s gonna keep 40 for as long as he could.
