Off Topic: Drake Is The Greatest Rapper Of His Generation

Iv’e been a huge Drake fan since his 2007 mixtape Comeback Season, then he continued to do something that is quite rare in hip hop and that is show progression. With So Far Gone, Thank Me Later, Take Care, Nothing Was The Same and If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. Each project improved upon the last in terms rapping, singing, and production. 

Before I get deep into this, i’m sure many people will argue me that Kendrick, J. Cole, Logic, Big KRIT, Meek Mill, Migos, etc are way better. And that’s fine, we all have our own opinions and I enjoy all those rappers/artists that I just mentioned, but the right opinion is that Drake is miles ahead of those other guy’s.

Drake over the last few year’s has become incredibly popular, nobody in hip hop is outselling this guy other than Eminem. It’s not all about sales because I of all people know sales do not determine quality. What makes Drake the best out, in my opinion is that nobody has really done what he has done to this level. And he continues to prove himself, Drake often in his music doubts himself and the own rap game that he is sitting on top of. 

Today in 2015, hip hop is not just about how good of a rapper you are. You have to be versatile, you have to stand out, you have to have a “gimmick.” Not saying Drake has a gimmick, because he doesn’t in my opinion. But when he harmonies or sings that’s huge for him because not many rappers sing as long with rapping.

Let’s not get it twisted, Drake is not the first rapper to sing and rap. Nelly, De La Soul and Ja Rule also did the whole rapper who sings thing. But as I stated earlier in this off topic piece. Drake is the 1st big mainstream rapper to make the rapping/singing thing popular. Drake continues to get better and better every year, every song he touches turns to gold, and hey… I would be in line with all the other Drake haters, but he as YET to steer me wrong.
