off topic:
first and foremost I think drake is a great rapper and I've listened to all his material(even before he was with wayne). But nobody that's headed to the hip hop hall of fame in the future so save the hater comments.


on topic:
So why are "some" people talking about him like he's up there with kanye, hov, nas, common, em, lil wayne(pre carter 3), luda, and even 2 pac etc etc? All these people have smashed the game when they first came out(or at least on they second album) with singles or albums that became instant classics. Everybody(not talking about "crazy" fans) quoting multiple lines from all they tracks and tracks changing the way we look at or describe everyday actions. Like straight up anthems that never have gone away from the time they were released. Also, when they dropped that one single/album you knew right then that 🤬 wasn't going to ever be forgotten.

for those of yall who don't quite get what i'm saying here's a few examples.

has drake even made one song that's even 🤬 with these tracks or had a powerful impact on the whole rap game? I mean on some damn near unanimous decision type 🤬 . can you even name 5 tracks from his whole catalog at this point where you would be like "that's my 🤬 !!!"?

In my opinion nope!!! what's your opinion on it?

LETS TALK ABOUT IT.

    cosign very deep and accurate thread...

    While I do like Underground Kings Over My Dead Body and Cameras off the new album, I doubt I'll give a 🤬 later in the year about them records...His songs don't have probably a year long lifespan

    Wrong.

    Many people inlcuding myself still bump this on the regular and it is still as good as it was when ifirst heard it..All the Drake hate is stupid thats going on today when only 2 years ago everybody in the industry and many Drake haters today were on his nuts and now jealousy of him being bigger than most of the Vets is really hurting them inside so they jus go at him. Yeah sure Drake has Simping songs but theyre way better songs then the wack 🤬 ludacris been droppin and everybody else who dissin him. The reason the IC hate Drake now cuz hes not your little secret nomore, as in hes not the underground cat nobody knows about, now becasue hes bigger than he was and everybody know who he is yall his old fans turn on him, ill understand if he was makin wack music to turn on him but he aint, Take Care was a great album. Take Care was very well composed and but people jus hatin on himcuz hes doing him, he aint pretending to be someone else

    While I mostly agree, an argument could be made for So Far Gone and "Best I Ever Had".

    Yeah. He in the Nelly category. If a rapper doesn't drop a classic album at his 3rd retail album, he will never get it.

    you know how many rappers got more than 3 albums, and don't have a "classic"?

    Actually "Word Of Mouf" is considered Luda's classic album IMO...

    "Incognegro" was basically re-released "Back For The First Time"....

    The Best I Ever Had is a good song, but it's not a classic song. Ten years from now, when someone is throwing a retro party, that is NOT a song that will be played.

    Best I Ever Had is nowhere near classic material imo. A classic would have an effect on ya like this classic here... something you can play 10-20 years latr and people be like "thats that 🤬 "
