As far as I can tell
Drake is looked upon as something of a joke in some quarters, chiefly because he often sings about his emotions and feelings and other pussy wet shit like that
Yeah, that joke is so subtle I’m not even sure it’s there
So, essentially, Drake is ridiculed because he’s a black person singing the way a white person does?
I’m just joking everyone- you’re alright– I know that the real reason people don’t like Drake is because he’s generally popular among young females, who are bizarrely drawn to an emotionally literate male unafraid to express his feelings, despite the fact that we all know how that’s proper gay, like
I fucking love Drake, way more than a man in his thirties should
– a man in his thirties who isn’t Drake of course- and I make no apologies for that. I think his seamless integration of R&B sensibilities, hip-hop legitimacy and hyper-sensitive emotions is genuinely ingenious, and his effect on the wider pop landscape perhaps won’t be appreciated and understood until long after he’s stopped making music
One thing Drake lacks, unfortunately, is any sense of differentiating between his pieces of work which are legitimately genius, and those that are bang average wastes of time
Over ‘Views’ 20 tracks (that’s twenty, two-zero, TWENTY, just in case you thought that was a typo and I intended to write a more sensible number) there are frequent examples of his legitimate talent, but they’ll occasionally be a 10-15 minute drought of inspiration that threatens to cause you to forget why you bothered listening to him at all
One Dance was Number One in the charts for fifteen weeks. Your response to this fact is a easy measure of how old and out of tough you are
Length: 81 minutes -35
Absolutely fucking unacceptable
Best Lyric: ‘Something don’t feel right/Because it ain’t right/Especially comin’ up after midnight’ +1
Number of AMAZING songs: 3 (+30)
Three! Three! Concentrate on the good stuff Drake!
(One of these amazing songs is Hotline Bling, which does not qualify for 2016’s Legit Bosses)
…But Are All the Rest of the Songs Kinda Amazing Anyway?
You know what? No. There is far too much filler and Drake needs to be punished or he’ll never learn
