    Nothing you said should make people stop "hating" on drake. Do I THINK drake is a very good artist, yes. But that doesn't have shit to do with record sales, how high he is on the MTV TOP MC'S, or the amount of awards he's been nominated for. Wayne is in the same boat and he hasn't been shit since CII.... I always want to ask people like the t/s how much money do you make off of the artists sales that keeps you talking about that shit all year long.

    Drake is a predictable artist. Everything he puts out sounds the same and too original.

    lmao. Singles, maybe. But albums? Hell no, you can't name me more than a couple songs on his album that followed the same formula....

    He's wack. Anyone with good taste in hip-hop pays him no attention

    What exactly is "good taste i hip hop?" Elaborate please.

    *notices t/s doesn't mention anything about quality music*

    for me, i didn't like Take Care, and his actions kinda annoy me. And he makes himself a target for ridicule anyway

    did you not see the songs that all hit number one on top 100 billboard...that doesnt count as quality music?

    Haters gonna hate man. My nigga Drake makes good music with a different style then what we've seen before him.


    And he's not contributing to the "all rappers gotta be gangster" mentality that has our youth out here killing eachother so he's good in my books. These old niggas just looking for the next NWA and they mad at Young Money lol.

    hit's don't equal quality music dumbass word to lil wayne....

    sir keep your feelings in your pocket calling me a dumbass wont change anything and your telling me 6 songs from one album all hitting number 1 on billboards doesnt make the album quality music thats like half the album right there?

  • He's gay or his action is...thatz y i dont eff withem...dont like his flow, subject matter, etc. Probably would respect him more if he did straight R&B & drop a rap every now & then

    i couldnt stand Drake at first until i heard Uptown and Ransom plus watched a Degrassi marathon
    then i realised dude sounds like Kanye and can spit plus he was really young
    dude might be looked back on as one of the best in 10 years

    It simply means you listen good rappers and not listen to rappers just because their popular.

    Aint this coming from and I.C.P fan come on man you have no right to talk about good taste in music

    So People have to like every successful artist? I judge artists off quality non quantity. You ask why people hate Drake but all you mention is his commercial accolades
