Drake's flow and lyrics aren't exactly Nas level, but in today's rap game, it's pretty good.
Exactly. I couldnt agree more without invading your personal space.

Who rated these clowns high? They are popular to sheep but you don't see intelligent people praising them.

so, overrated? yes, he's rated considerably higher than his abilities. imo.

nothing personal, but a guy from NY defending this dude is very odd.

i wasn't even trying to defend him i was just asking what you meant by he's a fabrication

i saw his freestyle on hot97, and i think people just made too much of a big deal over it, to me the only thing that matters is if you can spit, written or off the top, and it wasn't like it was a horrible, but i do think it would of looked better on his part to memorize it but w/e.

me being from NYC means nothing, theres a lot of people here that like drakes music, or at least the people i run into. im just drawn to his music, So Far Gone is one of my favorite mixtapes this year

Wayne for me. Greatest rapper of all time? Psshh. Dude ain't got nothing on my batchmate. I also find Drake overrated. They say he's the future of rap, but I haven't really heard anything special from him. He's not that Soulja Boy s***, but he's not anything that stands out either. I hope he does come out with something innovative though. That song with MJB, however, was... I don't know how to explain it.

Lil Wayne. Drake actually has some talent. Even though I don't listen to a lot of his music because its mostly for the ladies. I also respect him for all the love he shows Houston, all the way from T-Dot.

Drake himself can't even perform November 18th as the HTOWN crowd takes over

Drake showing love to Z-RO by jamming out to one of his tracks. This one surprised me. Who knew some kid actor from Canada knew a Z-Ro track word for word?
