In hip-hop, it’s all about street cred. If you haven’t murdered and pillaged townships for most of your life then you might as well turn in your mic and become a DJ. I don’t think any rapper in the history of the game has had less street cred than Drake. First of all he’s Canadian, which should have eliminated him right off the bat. But to make matters even more unrealistic, he used to star in Degrassi High. Even with all this going against him, Drake has managed to become one of the most inventive and innovative hip-hop artists out there. Because he had to fight against his thug-less image, it’s as if he’s pushing the boundaries of rap can be to prove that he knows what the hell he’s doing. He’s pushed rap so far, it’s to the point that it’s questionable if it’s even rap anymore or has become something unto itself. Don’t let his squeaky clean image fool you, Drake is as hard as any one in the rap game.
