It’s always good to see two of hip-hop’s brightest new acts link up and create some good music. “In The Morning” was featured on J. Cole’s amazing Friday Night Lights mixtape. While this may not be Drake or J. Cole’s finest lyrical work, the song and video are still both worth a watch and listen.
That’s right, GQ has named Drake of of it’s Men of the Year. Specifically he received the “Breakout of the Year” award. The other winners are Scarlett Johansson, Stephen Colbert, James Franco and Jeff Bridges. Look for Drake’s cover, as well as the other ones, on the December issue of GQ Magazine.
*Bonus* Drake ft. Lil Wayne- Man of the Year
BET decided to compose a list of their Top 10 Rappers of the 21st Century. I don’t know who’s list is worse, this one or MTV’s Hottest MC’s In The Game. Here’s how BET’s list went from top (#1) to bottom (#10): Eminem, Lil Wayne, Kanye West, 50 Cent, T.I., Ludacris, Drake, Young Jeezy, Jadakiss, Rick Ross. Really BET? They stated that the list was created based off of “flow, lyrics, subject matter, cultural impact, dough, and as needed in the arsenal of a 21st Century rapper –digital skills (e.g., Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, their own website, etc.).” Ok so why is Jadakiss on the list? AND WHERE IS JAY-Z??? I know people will see this and freak out but I’m not even sure Drake should be on here. He’s the future of hip-hop but Drake has only has had about 2 years max in the game. Here’s my list, using BET’s criteria, and putting aside all of my personal preferences: 50 Cent, Jay-Z, Eminem, Lil Wayne, Kanye West, Ludacris, T.I., Nelly, Rick Ross, Young Jeezy. Honorable Mentions: Drake, Fabolous, The Game. Let the debate being.
Even in jail Lil Wayne still manages to drop music and videos as if he was still home. I Am Not a Human Being shows Wayne has an incredible work ethic that rivals the late great Tupac. With guest appearances from his Drake, Nicki Minaj, T-Street, Jay Sean and Lil Twist Wayne kept it all in the Young Money/Cash Money Family. Let’s get into I Am Not Human Being.
Lil Wayne opens I Am Not A Human Being with Gonnoreah feat. Drake. Drake steals the show. He speaks on magazines asking if he is still with Young Money. You gotta admit the Hip Hop head in you wishes he was on G.O.O.D. Music. Moving forward Wayne hits us with the Kanye sounding With You feat. Drake. I wish Drake would have dropped a verse on this track but his singing is a nice compliment. Wayne adds I’m Single from the No Ceilings Mixtape. With the underground success of I’m Single it was a no brainer to put it on the cd. The added bonus is Drake is on the track. My only problem is I can’t tell. On Whats Wrong With Them Nicki is on the catchy hook. I can definitely see this as a single. It would be dope if they reworked it with a verse from Nicki.
So Drake’s in house producer threw a shot at Kanye…wonder was it because of the dueces remix???
I thought Kanye was talking about Reggie Bush…Maybe it was a shot at Drake… You Decide!!!!
