Punked: Why Dissing Drake Is Trendy (And Sometimes Justified) In 2012

Drake is successfully challenging traditional notions of masculinity, class and gender roles. But especially in 2012, sometimes he's just a victim of his own sometimes-comical lack of self-awareness.

Unless you’re counting Taylor Lautner’s turn as the werewolf Jacob in the Twilight series, only one of the men on the cover of Us magazine’s “100 Cutest Guys” issue has threatened to “catch a body like that.” The issuer of the aforementioned threat would be one Aubrey Drake Graham, and unlike Lautner, he wasn’t in character. Or was he? Drizzy, the actor turned chart-topping rapper and arbiter of various Hip Hop trends, has managed to become the target of multiple disses in a year that’s only halfway finished. How, and more importantly why did taking shots at the person that spearheaded such trends as “Hashtag Rap” and flipping mixtapes for retail consumption become so fashionable?

Jealous Ones Envy, Or At Least Hate

“Niggas see me in the street / Pretend to be friendly / But I know any type of success breeds envy / I know in the back of your mind you’re conjuring ways to hem me / Leave my friends in a circle pouring out Henny…”—Jay-Z, “Lucky Me”

One of the reasons Drake has been targeted five times (and counting) this year alone is because he’s one of music’s top artists. That’s not an opinion. Since Cash Money/Universal Records slapped a barcode on So Far Gone roughly three summers ago, Drake has been good for annually turning in one top-selling album and a handful of gold and/or platinum singles. As of July 1, So Far Gone has been certified gold by the RIAA. Meanwhile Thank Me Later and Take Care have moved 1.5 million and 1.8 million copies respectively. But sales don’t tell the whole story because Milli Vanilli amassed almost the same number of album and single sales as Drake. And even at their peak, Rob and Fab didn’t exactly make for water-cooler conversation.

Drake’s success and its subsequent backlash can also be charted by an anecdotal look at his impact on pop culture. Admittedly, I’m not a member of the Drake fan club. But as someone that spends entirely too much time analyzing what goes on with Hip Hop in any given week, the culture’s various reactions to what (and sometimes whom) Drake does are fascinating. Even if you don’t like Drake's music, you’re probably a fan of one of his many collaborators. If not that, you’re likely a fan of one of the dozens of artists that suddenly started replacing the word “like” in their similes with an elongated pause a few years ago. Or, like me, you’ve quizzically scratched your head at the teen walking around your city with a “First name ‘Greatest,’ Last name ‘Ever’” t-shirt. And when artists like 2 Chainz and Alicia Keys are looking for a hit, Drake is on the short list of people they call.

The Role Of Authenticity In A Rapper's Respectability

“Just because you wild in the club you ain’t thug / Sport gloves and gold mugs / You ain’t thug / Tattoos and hard screws don’t make you thug / Sucka for love / Catch a slug nigga…” –Streetlife, “Suspect Chin Music”

It would be patently naïve to think his commercial and critical successes were the only reasons people as non-threatening as Chris Brown and Ashton Kutcher have also been taking potshots at Drake. As it happens, there are times when Drake comes off as entitled douche with limited self-awareness. Kutcher successfully “Punk’d” Drizzy because he’s the type of person that is self-absorbed enough to think secret service agents drive around saying, “Y.O.L.O.” Women, and sometimes Drake himself, point to his emotional sensitivity as a unique asset. It’s an attribute that’s on full display on songs like “Say What’s Real” or the Elle interview where he talked about how Rihanna may or may not have inadvertently played him. So when he snarls, “She could have a Grammy / I’ll still treat her ass like a nominee / Just need to know what that pussy like / So one time is fine with me,” (presumably also about Rihanna)—his detractors call him fake, while his fans say he’s just complicated. Both are accusations that have been leveled against other successful emcees. And the truth probably lies somewhere in the middle.

But even if Drake didn’t feel the need to transform his sometimes fluttery falsetto into an attempted growl on tracks like “Stay Schemin,’” he would still draw animosity. You may have noticed the seismic shift in Hip Hop’s landscape over the last decade. When notable male contributors are kissing each other and simultaneously claiming to be “goons” and “gangsta” while no one questions them, what exactly does it mean to be masculine in Hip Hop? I’m not entirely sure anyone knows anymore. Or maybe the younger generation just doesn’t care. Either way, the former suburban actor from Canada that rocks an Aaliyah tattoo and sings about feeling alone because he can’t kick his yes men out of the studio makes an easy target. But the list of former teen soap actors who can thug it out is non-existent. So unless Aubrey has plans of joining the fire department and standing outside the window of a burning building, all talks of “catching bodies” should probably stop. Since I’m not a mind reader, I can only assume that was the rationale when Common threw a few subtle shots in Aubrey’s direction at the top of the year with “Sweet.” Listeners couldn’t necessarily be blamed for thinking the same about Pusha T’s perceived insults from “Exodus 23:1.”

There is a precedent. As somewhat of a gatekeeper for Hip Hop’s Golden Era contributors, Common took the same stand on “Real Nigga Quotes” in 1997 when Marques Houston and the rest of Immature decided to start wearing waif-ish perms. He referred to them as “little hoe niggas,” and unlike Drake, they had no rebuttal. Similarly, Pusha T has been quick to separate himself from those he deems as Rap impostors on tracks like “I’m Not You” and “Mr. Me Too.” And Drake is most definitely challenging traditional notions of masculinity, class and gender roles with his emotionally driven music and open endorsement of white wine spritzers. I think we’re just seeing Hip Hop anthropology at work. Elder statesmen like Pusha and Common—and T. Boone Pickens for that matter—are drawing a line in the sand saying what’s approved behavior and what’s not. Part of telling listeners what and who you are also involves telling them what and who you’re not. As far as his alleged brawl with Chris Brown, it’s safe to say we can all chalk that up to a classic love triangle. Ultimately, Rihanna’s pimp hand is stronger than Christopher or Aubrey’s.

Drake Is Winning Regardless Of What Anybody Thinks Or Laughs At

“I’ma tell you what Banks told me / 'Cause go head and switch the style up / If niggas hate / Then let ‘em hate / And watch the money pile up / Or we can go upside their head with a bottle of bubb…” –50 Cent, “In Da Club”

I will admit that I used to keep a few Drake albums in my iPod, and they came in handy at house parties and went over quite well with certain types of women I knew. I’ve since deleted them. It’s not that the songs stopped being catchy. And anyone that knows about music will at the very least credit Drake for his superior wordplay, songwriting and structuring skills. But I don’t like what having a Drake album in my collection implies. I think spending money rescuing strippers is some sucker shit. Plus it’s rather difficult to sing along to the lyrics of “Lord Knows” because no self-respecting guy looks at his woman’s phone while she’s in the bathroom. And regardless of what Juvenile says, plenty of people in the South don’t approve of making “Back That Azz Up” a love ballad. Drake does things I don’t like fairly often. So as a paying consumer, I just never buy his music. But I’ve never felt compelled to publicly diss him.

For me Drake’s 2009 knee injury pretty much sums up his career, his detractors and his attitude towards them. Having been under doctors’ advice to limit any high-impact activity, Drake appeared at an ‘09 New Jersey date on Lil Wayne’s America’s Most Wanted Tour because he didn’t want to let down his fans. Caught up in the moment, Drake was doing some macho posturing—puffing out his chest, mean mugging and bopping along to the backing music. Seconds later he crumpled to the floor of the stage in a heap when his already injured knee buckled. Wayne poked fun at him, and Drake was helped off the stage. Moments later, the music continued, and Drake was letting everyone know he was okay via a Twitter correspondence with Miss Info. We got some laughs, and “Drake’s Knee” ended up with its own Twitter feed. The whole incident was a mix of sincerity and hubris followed by some embarrassment and injury due to Drake’s own sometimes-comical lack of self-awareness. But three years later, he’s still getting money and we’re still talking about him. Not much has changed since then.

    Critically breaking this guy down. Im sure his fans think you a hater. That milli Vanilli line was killer rofl!

  • Anonymous

    this is the birth of the e feminine black male that aint going do shit or say shit. if my child was like him cool but if my child model himself after someone like him and let people punk him i would have to kick his ass. you may be gay hell i watch tranny porn myself. haha but aint same time i'm not going let nobody fuck with me. thats the part about him i dont respect.

  • easy

    this shit is hella funny to me. Dont get me wrong i dont like drake i dont like what he portrays i dont respect any rapper who trys to call themselves an artist who also does promos for pepsi commercials. but i dont listen to him so i wont go in depth about him i just hate any rapper who sells the fuck out and makes this overproduced garbage for 13 year old middle school girls. im not going to knock him for being emotional but yeah dude could be a man his fans say they can relate and hes on another level because he talks about his feeling and no other rappers do and thats because his fans also have justin beiber in there ipod and there not exposed enough to hip hop slug of atmosphere talks about his feelings to but in a more masculine way. but back to my point i feel like drake represents everything thats wrong with todays hip hop. the closest compairsen i could make would be him and ice cube like can you really listen to "today was a good day" and watch one of his shitty comedys about raising his kid its all bullshit and product placement fuck that i dont respect the man because he messes with the integrity of the rap game himself i could give a fuck if he was a child actor.

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA!!!!! Good joke, stan.

    • MIQ VERSE

      See this is where I have to strongly disagree fam. HipHop is about having your own unique style whatever that maybe. So were the Beastie Boys wack because they infused Punk music into their sound? Or is Eminem wack because he rapped about doing shrooms and killing his mother? As far as "sell out" that is an interesting couple of words because Ice Cube is a millionaire with kids and a wife and is no longer living in the hood so why would he be doing still rapping about rolling through the hood? And if you wanna talk selling out which I totally disagree with then were Pete Rock and CL smooth sellouts when they did the Sprite commercial? What about BIG and PAC? Do you honestly believe they would still be rapping about that same stuff they were rapping about at 25 when they are 40 plus? Nas is arguably one of the illest lyricist to ever touch a mic and he just released a classic album and he was talking about the demise of his marriage, his daughter etc. This is the music "business" the point is to sell records! What Drake does is "his" thing and whether you like it or not there are a lot of people who relate to what he talks about. I think the only reason that people hate is because it would be too hard to admit that a mixed kid from Canada who was on a admittedly corny teen show which he has not denied can be one of the top mcs in the game!

  • MIQ VERSE

    The fact that we are still talking about Drake is ridiculous to me. This article was pretty pointless. Whether you like Drake or not the fact that he is still relevant says it all and even when people "hate" on the dude you can't question his skills. As far as him displaying emotion on record or in person being classified as being gay that just goes to show that anyone that would comment in such a way still has a hell of a lot of growing up to do. Honestly if you ask me I think it is more feminine to sit around discussing another man's life instead of making your own moves. Common can come with all of the disses he wants but he is about as hypocritical as they come and Pusha though I am a fan what exactly was gained by the whole Exodus thing?In spite of signing with G.O.O.D Pusha will never sell any respectable amount of units so it begs the question as to whether or not this was about music or publicity? I don't know! Just my two cents!

      ^^^^ This nigga is one of those Drake stans.

    • MIQVERSE

      LOL! Interesting that you have nothing truly valuable to say but some smart ass remarks. What is true is that the same people who comment and bash Drake on this site manage to spend a HELL of a lot of time doing it. If Drake was of no interest to you and he was just a "shitty pop rapper" as you so eloquently put it then why waste time responding? Answer that for me bruh! Sounds like you are more interested in gossiping from where I stand but as I said before that is just my two cents.

    • ^^

      none of what you said was true. drake is just another shitty pop rapper getting dissed/made fun of non-stop.

  • PLAYA HATERS GET REAL

    This is my prob with Drake Haters. 9/10 - they judge Drake due to his persona and the way he looks - not his music. I just know its absolute BS when they say stuff like "Drake sucks shit". They are just trying to justify their hatred of his image - not his music. They are judging dude by his light-skin looks and because he has all these retarded "Zoolander" pictures all over the net. Do I think Drake looks and talks weird? Yeah. Sure, absolutely he does. But that doesnt change the fact that he is talented. Ive done this test to my friends who allege to hate Drake numerous times. These guys are not really current and they dont listen to the radio enough to decipher Drake songs but they have just made up their mind - Drake is wack. They say they like "real hip-hop" or whatever. Anyways, I will play them a joint like "Pop That" which is not an as obvious Drake song becuase it is not sing-songy and then, afterwards, ask them who ripped that shit and they have to admit it despite their alleged hatred - Drake went in. We be at the club and they will unkowingly be bopping their head - "Who is this?" Dumb mothafuckas - Its Drake. The problem I have with Drake Haters is when I hear tracks like "Pop That" or "Motto" if Nas or whoever else they consider "real hip-hop" was using the exact same vocals, same lyrics, same flow - those same dudes would call it amazing. No debate. And if Drake made a song like Nas' "Rule" which is shitty pop song - everyone would be shittin on Drake like pigeons. Its not that Drake is the greatest artist/MC out there but he is not the worst either. The haters are just dissing for the wrong reasons. Thats the problem. They arent judging his music. They are wrapped up in his perception/image. Everyone wants to dismiss Drake's shit as bubble-gum pop music but anyone who really listens to it fairly has to admit - its just not that surface - it has more depth. The dude is just talented. To his detriment, he just happens to be a light-skin dude from the suburbs of Canada. There is no denying his talent tho. So just shut up and mind your own business. Go listen to your Joe Bada$$ or Action Bronson. Let dude make his music.

    @iamhiphop "You're just mad/jealous/hating because he has more money/fame/success than you" the most overused and ridiculous excuse to defend a wack rapper. We hip-hop fans don't care about that shit. True it is overused. "You always comment on his appearance/behavior/ethnicity/nationality" true, but that's not the only reason why we don't like Drake. No, but it is an unnecessary, immature jab at him and if that is you're only diss towards him then you are no better than Stans who say you're just made because he is rich, successful,etc. "He's a great rapper" no, he's not. He's an average rapper at best, but nothing special. He is a great rapper if you can't see that then you are just a plain hater. "His music isn't like every other rapper" why, because he sings about his emotions and does R&B? Other rapppers have done what Drake is doing. He's an R&B/pop rapper whose music is basically a mix of Nelly, Ja Rule, Lil Wayne, and other rappers. Show me 10-20 other rapper that blend melody with his raps as much and as well as he can, whose lyrics are as potent as his and can make a hit as much as him. He is a rapper that blends melody with his raps he isn't an R&B/pop rapper. "Why are you on his articles" because we can. This is a comments section where we can express how we feel about particular artists, whether we like them or not. Agreed

What Drake is doing is nothing special. his music isn't as great as it's hyped up to be. he IS a R&B/pop rapper.

  • Shade

    This article is horrible. No self-respecting man would look through a woman's phone if she goes to the bathroom? No smart rich man as successful as him would not be cautious of these potential rapper groupies. It's sucker shit to think you can try and persuade a young female to a better life? Who cares if people from the south don't approve of making it a love ballad all they probably listen too is a rachett songs Back That Azz Up which song do you think would have a better chance of winning an award for it's songwriting and melody? Drake's a real person which is more than what I can say for you ghetto's hip hop elitists.

  • FuKKK DraKKKe

    This article is ridiculous. Omar Burgess must be retarted or something. The only reason we diss DraKKKe is because he's a useless stupid piece of shit, a fuckin scumbag, a house nigger and a faggot ass cuckhold. If you love/respect Drake, go kill yourself, cause you even lamer than him.

  • IRaN-H

    Drake is not whack its is subject matter he talks about gay shit for real but i bump his music when the song is good. Like headlines was whack lord knows was hard then i listen to what hes talking about on lord knows then your like wtf he shit is crazy lol. I cant even listen to the song no more. If hes stick to his r&b shit i guess i dunno

    • Shade

      Because HipHopDx's opinions suck so much in every article they make I don't know why they keep doing it.

  • Real Talk

    I'll admit; Drake looks sexy with that princess crown on. :)

  • thug hip pop sux

    This article is pure nonsense and it is telling when the author claims to erase his Drake tracks because he is essentially "embarrassed" (ie. weak, insecure, worried about what others will think, effeminate). The comments from folks who obviously hate Drake or his success are also telling. If you don't like an artist, why not avoid articles about him and stop following him like he's bragelina. The funniest part is that Drake's softness is entirely exaggerated. Respected artists have made way softer songs than Drake. If Drake made a song like Biz Markie's "Just a Friend", he would be laughed off stage by his haters. If he made a song like Nas' "Rule", he would also be dismissed as too pop and laughed away. But everyone on hiphopdx just loves off NaS even though he has not made a truly great all-around album since Illmatic. In fact, IMO he has pretty much sucked every since. All the hatred centers around Drake's appearance and his story as an actor - not his music. It's about his light-skin and soft look - not his music. The fact he was on teen show and he's from Canada - not his music. That's what the haters don't get. When evaluated solely by his music, there is no denying his talent as an MC and songwriter. If you put half his songs and associated it with any other artist's discography, the haters would be pretending it was the second coming NaS. So this is why all the hate is dismissed by Drake fans as hater jealousy. THE BS IS OBVIOUS. I meet so many people who will say "I don't listen to Drake, I like real hiphop". It's become the new clique for "cool" hiphop intellectuals everywhere and that's precisely why 99% of underground hiphop sucks. It sticks to this traditional ( predictable ) idea of what hiphop is supposed to be rather than take any risks to evolve the culture. At best, It's just a weak revitalization of early 90s hiphop. The reason Drake is so successful is not because he is reincarnation of Ja Rule who made hollow fake club music. It's because Drake's music is honest, its innovative and he has incredible hooks. Content-wise it is actually in some ways a refreshing nostalgic trip back to the true origins of pure hip-hop before gangsta rap wannabes basically destroyed it with its phony posturing.p and dumb stereotypes. Now before the morons on here go on to say Drake does nothing new and just copies everyone else then please explain all the rampant hatred. Innovators are hated, followers are always completely ignored so it just doesn't make any sense. I expect anti-gay comments to continue to dominate this article but the funny thing is the only gay person I have ever met used to be the most homophobic person in the world. Just like Omar is scared to admit he digs Drake, my feeling is all these faggot comments on here reflect posters who are afraid to admit the truth - they are obssessed with dick. Why else continuously post about it?

      For all your time wasted on writing useless paragraphs, you are just stating your opinion there are no facts. Fact some people do not like Drake get over it. And now i will state my opinion it was written stillmatic and distant relatives are classics by Nas.

It's the epitome of pop rap. There's nothing innovative about it; its just the same pop crap about money and bitches you hear on the radio. You're just a butt-hurt Drake stan who's mad because Omar spoke the truth about Drake. Face it; Drake is a bitch because of his music and his personality. Put your tampon on and let the grown folks talk. Bitch

  • Seriously

    the reason i dont like drakes music is because most of his music embodies what could be defined as a "soft man" and makes it the status quo or ok. Men are suppose to be raised to be strong and independent(not as in overexagerated masculine stereotypes but as in strong willed). Even though the industy is filled with conformist and sellouts drake is the most visible ofender of making "soft" acceptable. It may not affect me individually but it does play a role in the ethos of the youth and it shouldn't be aceptable.

    • Shade

      This is the problem with hip hop. Being real is being soft. You saying saying faggot this and faggot that and I'ma shoot you with my 9 is better than pouring out your heart on a song? Which is what most music artists should be doing? Fuck Hip Hop then *Goes to listen to some REAL music*

  • Rellz

    Drake is an awkward dude. We knew that from way back during his mixtape years, but the man has bars and that can't be denied either. If you aren't open to new sounds you shouldn't listen to him though, he's not exactly hip-hop, but his music is on point (for the most part)

  • On Some Real Shit...

    Both Omar and Peter Rosenberg deserve a medal for dissing those YM fools Drake and Nicki Minaj. We need people like them who speaks the honest truth and isn't always ass-kissing. The stans will always get mad at someone who doesn't agree with them about their favorite artists, but they can't handle the truth.

  • Real Talk

    "because no self-respecting guy looks at his womans phone while shes in the bathroom." to the writer,Drake was robbed by a female who he was chilling with. Actually she didn't rob him, but she had him set up, man if your a writer for a fucking Hip Hop website at least do your research smh. OMAR BURGESS should be blackballed from HHDX. "I will admit that I used to keep a few Drake albums in my iPod" Drake has 2 albums out, so you bought both of them. "Drake does things I dont like fairly often. So as a paying consumer, I just never buy his music. But Ive never felt compelled to publicly diss him." Dawg you wrote a whole article dissing him, or venting what have you. "But I dont like what having a Drake album in my collection implies" hahaha okay name any rapper albums that you have, 2 Pac, that album will imply that it is cool to kill a motherfucker, so you condone that right? Biggie Smalls same shit. Jay Z wil imply that if you sell that rock you can make it big. Dawg your reaching so hard to dislike Drake, that it shows with your petty little disses. "I think spending money rescuing strippers is some sucker shit. " Call T.I, Ludacris, Jeezy, Ross, Meek Mill, Game, Floyd Maywheather, call them all out and the long list of not only rappers but entertainers that have spent large amounts of money in a strip club, how about you call them out for being suckas. Bet you wont... Omar I wish you personally would reply back...

    LMFAO Look at all of the Drake stans getting mad at Omar's article. The truth hurts, doesn't it? Your Canadian idol is becoming the butt of all jokes and your dickriding won't change a thing.

      dude. drake is definitely in that same lane as nelly and ja rule. he's not that strong lyrically, fuck what you heard.

    • DISAGREE

      Absurd...If I were to name the best MCs in history, my list would probably include the likes of Ghostface, Tupac, KRS-One, Jay-Z, Scarface, MF Doom etc. Nelly/Ja Rule make poppy hollow garbage. Its tempting to lump Drake there but its simply an untrue ridiculous comparison. He is much more lyrical than either of those artists. Just because he has some sing-songy hooks does not put him there.

  • Real Talk

    At the end of the day, Drake has no control over your life. So why do you give him so much attention? Why are you so obsessed with his success? Why is it that every YMCMB article, you constantly feel the need to share your feelings over and over again. Face the facts, Drake is an entertainer and has a certain affect on you, because deep down you really like his music. You would not click on a song that features Drake, unless you like his music. So why click it? To see if it changes your mind how you feel about him? No, thats not the answer is it. The writer of this article must feel dumb after reading his article. You spent all this time venting about Drake. Why? is he that much on your mind that you felt the need to vent, this writer is probably one of the many YMCMB haters that post on this site. Talking about you used to have Drake in your Ipod for parties and the ladies, yea righttttttt. He knows deep down he was a fan as well. And every one is taking "Catch a body" line to serious. The actual verse is "Your gonna make someone around me catch a body like that, Noooo don't do it please don't do it, because if one of them goes in we all go through it" where is he stating that he will actually murder someone. And if your going to hold him against that one line. Y not hold every one else against their lines as well. How many rappers are shooting people on the daily. How many people has Jay Z shot and killed? How many people has Nas shot and killed? How many people has Rakim shot and Killed? How many people has Biggie Smalls shot and Kill? All have rapped about shooting they guns. You guys forget that this is just music and music is entertainment.

      How does Drake's dick taste, stan?

    • PSK

      @V "The Conquerer". Unless your a dirt poor MC, most MCs are actually not real. They brag about dealing drugs but are clearly out of the game due their career as a music artist - yet still try to pretend like they are in the streets (ex. Pusha T etc.). Drake raps about what is going on his life. Knock the dude all you want - everyone has their own taste in music. But I think a lack authenticity is not something that can be really held against him.

    • Real Stan

      nice novel

    • Vin "The Conquerer"

      The only person who is obsessed about his success is Drake himself. It shows in his music. The reason why people don't like him is because he brags about himself too much instead of making songs his fans can actually relate to. He raps about drinking expensive champagne that most his fans cant afford. I'll stick to listening to real rap that talks about everyday struggles over some prick who only brags about the stacks of cash he has off of teenage girls that get wet to listening to his music that buy his albums. Sorry, can't relate to conceded rap.

    As a Drake fan and a man, I applaud this article. I would like to defend Drake's opening lyrics on "Lord Knows," however. The woman's phone he was checking wasn't his woman--meaning, someone he was in a relationship with. I think the checking phone tactic is/was used on females who he doesn't trust because he doesn't fairly know them. (You also have to consider his celebrity status). I too disagree with paying or spending money or saving women/strippers. But, if it is done, I do not look at that as a "real nigga" detriment. If all your business is handled and you genuinely have the cash, I say, do you. I also think Drizzy has embraced a new/better way to be true/real. Not only Drake, but I salute hip-hop as of late in general for being trill and admitting that masculinity and realism isn't confined to toughness.

  • Cool Bro

    Let comment on a couple of things. The Drake hating trend is very lame and unoriginal nowadays. It seems like people hate on Drake because he was a child actor on Degrassi (Wheelchair Jimmy anyone?) that happens to be also having a Jewish background (Jews are historically know to be the most hated group back during the Babylon/Egyptian times). And look at the artists who tried to get at Drake: Hopsin- An Eminem biter who used to diss him just for attention and now claiming to not dissing people and being a "Christian" when he makes songs like "Am I A Psycho" (Jason from Friday the 13th is very satanic and Eminem aka Slim Shady used this character during his possession days). Ludacris- Waited a year to respond once Drake got tired of the hashtag rap and let's face it, Ludacris sucks. He joins the likes of Bieber, Enrique, Jason Aldean, and Taio Cruz by spitting out the same verse in each song. Not to mention, My Chick Bad and How Low with that Fred kid from YT was already bad enough. Luda, stick to acting. DMX- Never dissed him in a song but dissed him in an interview. It sounds like DMX is jealous to me because he's one of the conspiracy theorist's favorite rappers but he was very satanic (made a song with Marilyn Manson with the album cover of a blood bath sacrifice) and don't let his "conversion" fool you. Check out his recent songs and see what I mean. Common- He never directly dissed Drake although Drake was the rapper that comes in mind when he made "Sweet". The only rapper who I respect and thought would come out a victor (he KO'd Ice Cube of all people) but squashed early enough. He is soft at times but Common can deliver. Pusha T- Here's a rapper I have no respect for. This guy clearly is a devil worshipper. He claims to be a Christian but went as using Bible Verses and using prayers for his album titles. But he even stated in his new song that he's the God of everything else. Ever heard of Hegelian Dialect? Pusha T is another industry puppet that Kanye signed (talented musician but very demonic rapper especially now), and anyone who sides for the GOOD Music vs YMCMB junk should stop listening to music forever. Chris Brown- This guy is the definition of a sell-out. How else would he get popular again? After the Rihanna incident, he should been a laughing stock, now he's coming back as the R&B new king and act that incident never happened. Just like how the NBA made people like LeBron James again, they made Chris Brown relevant by making him "hardcore". But he's soft and a horrible singer/musician. Forgiving All My Enemies but yet you dissed a former collaborator. Now Drake is at fault too. That YOLO junk is garbage and hated everything he's been on since be making songs with wack artists like Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, DJ Khaled, 2 Chainz, Future, Young Jeezy, Meek Mill, Justin Bieber and all those other clowns. Drake had very good potential during his So Far Gone days but he obviously limit his options to downgrade his music. Tyga did the same thing going from a Travie McCoy-type of rap to makings song like Rack City or Faded. The industry is fake and same with underground acts man. I only stick artists with talent and even if they had satanic influences at one point (Eminem, Tupac had several cases) I don't worship them like most of these fans here. Nas gets praised a lot but he's a sellout like Jay-Z. It's like how guys like Charles Barkley, Scottie Pippen and Karl Malone all hate on Michael Jordan and giving LeBron props of being an "all-time great" for his championship*. People just find ways to find certain flaws and then bash on them. Jesus is the only way and my Lord and Savior not some ordinary human being that raps for a living. Think for once.

    It's interesting to see how much one person can analyze another person and come up with such an in-depth article. I've always known hip hop to be the truest form of expressing oneself ... But apparently you need to be a "thug" to contribute to the culture. It needs to be constantly noted if you stand out from the "thug mold" by any means and should be critized. The hip hop culture has become an on going episode of tmz. Everyone is caught up in all the wrong things. This culture is dying not because of artists like drake but because of the confusion of what is or is not accept. Being yourself can get you in trouble apparently. It's sad to see how simple have become these days. Everyone needs a blueprint on how to live life. As for the writer of this article, I think you wasted your time. There is so many other points to make about hip hop culture but instead you chose to pick apart drake. You say you like to focus on hiphop, try focusing on other elements of the culture rather than someone's "masculinity" you could even question yours just for spending so much time paying attention to such details of another man. Many of hip hops fans need to wake the fuck up. Be yourself and not the cookie cutter molded thug hip hop apparently created for you to follow.

    • ETL

      Common, 3stacks, mos def, taleb kweli, jay cole, jay electronica, phonte, murs I can go on. none of those rappers are on no thug shit and some of them even sing, so your narrow vision of hip hop makes for an invalid argument. Big pooh, atcq, de la soul, skyzoo, elzhi,thee tom hardy should I go on? The machine leads you to believe that that's his lane alone while in all reality we just want variety. What? they make boring music? If marvins room was a mos def song and otis was little brother you would say the same. It's the game of favorites by corporations that got us at each other and some of us don't see the big picture.

    People diss Drake because he speaks to what women WANT men to think. He's focused his career on that analogy and it rubs the "real niggas" the wrong way. Yeah, he's getting money.. but niggas that see shit just don't like that shit. I don't like that shit. So I just don't listen to the nigga anymore. He's talented... I just don't respect what he basing his career off of. Which is speaking the things women think a man should be/do. As a man I can't fuck with that shit. Maybe I think to deep... iono thats just me.

  • THE TRUTH

    Wrong, wrong, wrong. Omar you cant really be pretending that your all masculine when you are writing for a geeky blog? You cant really be serious giving Common any serious respect for the biggest misstep of his career? You cant be calling Pusha T masculine for filling his song with verses, going on about how much money Drake makes when it is clear Pusha T doesnt make anything close to what he earns? And why does he care anyways? It just sounds retarded? There is entire of phony gangsta hip-hop that was nothing but BS but I see you taking no stand against that. Let me guess, not "tough" enough to stand against the tide like say, hmm....Drake. I think you underestimate his fan's intelligence. You want them to be dumb pop fans who nothing about "real hiphop". The truth is: Real Recognize Real. Most realize true masculinity or toughness is not just being powerful and successful but a combination of admitting your mistakes and showing your vulnerabilites, NOT THE OPPOSITE like "pretending" to be powerful by writing "macho" lyrics and walking around like your a tough guys (which more like "insecurity") I watched both Pusha T's Drake Diss and Common's video for "Sweet" and both these men look like grown men pretending to be scary thugs. I didnt believe it. It looked like BS. Not cool, not tough. They looked like wanna-bes. Both videos to me look corny, pathetic and fake. Jay-Z would never have shot either of those videos because they look like they are trying too hard - not being authentic. Jay-Z knows how to behave like a guy who has the crown. Common/Pusha T behave like losers pretending to be tough. The audience is not dumb - they can decipher the difference. IMO Drake is more like Jay-Z -in other words, "HE IS REAL" and people can see that true authenticity. That is what has been missing from hip-hop since fake exagerrated gangsta stereotypes destroyed the art-form. At any rate, these are the top reasons you losers hate on Drake: 1. THE WAY HE LOOKS. This is probably the reason 90% of people get pissed about Drake. They dont listen to his music - they watch videos. He is considered to look like he is from a boy band. He is also that light-skin, pretty-boyish-looking guy that their Mom and Dad might approve of or think is acceptable. He was that mixed black guy that got along with white people. He doesnt look thugged-out/street or talk thugged-out in interviews. He looks like he got As in high school (even though he dropped out). He looks like the type of dude that model chicks dig. He is one of the few rappers who probably had better-looking chicks before he was famous. Plus, unlike Dr. Dre and 90% of other "great" rappers, he doesnt lie about phony gangsta stereotypes. He is actually a real person. Almost normal. This is completely unacceptable to you insecure chumos. 2. HE MIXED R&B WITH HIPHOP MORE THAN IS ACCEPTABLE TO GUYS FROM THE SUBURBS WHO ARE INTO STREET HIPHOP: This is what Puffy and Biggie did before and caused a whole shit storm of jealousy/hatred. I was one of those who had ambivalence for it at the time. I hated R&B. I loved hip-hop. I preferred OGC over Biggie anyday because Biggie had R&B hooks. Nowadays, I am older and wiser. Good music is good music. 3.HE IS CANADIAN - Canada is a foriegn country that by all measures is probably better than the USA - lets face it. It is a frightening reality to any patriotic Americans who have ever visited our little neighbor to the North. But Americans still like to think they are the coolest and hippest even though our status is slipping quickly and most international people are aware that America is really over-rated and partially a wasteland of fat people eating fast food, hanging out at strip malls who are too ignorant to know anything about the world. Drake - the Canadian - makes the American dream look like a fat trashy chick with a bumper sticker on her butt. 4. HE IS NUMBER ONE. Haters hate the top guy, its just a fact - it is what losers do - and Drake is that guy right now. The only other guy, for sure, is Kanye and maybe Lil Wayne but it feels like Wayne is falling off cause his music sucks as of late.

      Co-sign. The other reason you neglected to mention is that hip-hop trends have a very short lifespan. Whoever is dope today is wack tomorrow. So much of hip hop is image and most heads simply listen to what they're told is cool at the time. I've been listening to hip hop for over 20 years and its always been that way. Personally I dig some of his music as its different and unique to some of the shit out there. I don't think you should confine yourself to a box. I bump everything from Common, Talib, Cube, Styles P, SpaceGhostPurrp, it don't matter. I like originality and love him or hate him, but he came with his own style.

      Who said anything about being masculine? Besides, your post is shit because you disrespect the legends to try to prove a idiotic point. You're basically saying that every rapper should be a metrosexual bitch. You're talking like a female; in fact, you ARE a female. Besides, Drake ain't real. He's about as fake as the rest of the "90%." This dude sings like a pussy-whipped bitch, talking about going through a chick's purses and cell phones while she's in the shower, meanwhile, he talks about catching bodies and talking like a blood and yell "YOLO." Biggest contradiction in the game since Lil Wayne.

  • da1

    This was a very good article and I hate drake. You made alot of good points plus I like your style of writing. You have alot of potential of being a writer of a column of a very big newspaper or maybe famous author. Anyways, Drake is a clown he may stay in the news, but no one really takes this guy serious or sees him becoming a legend or top 5 dead or alive.

    Great points made here - coming from someone who's not a fan. A lot of hip-hop fans are very insecure, so to see someone who isn't traditionally masculine, and worse, Jewish, riles many. But. He appears to have gained a reputation for lyrical credibility that bears absolutely no weight. The PR stunt surrounding the so-called 'hashtag flow' (although I hate to use such a hackneyed, advertising-ready term) was just as empty - taking the similes that many rappers of similarly limited ability were running into the ground, and removing the 'like'. The percieved brilliance surrounding this somehow makes it worse. One final point: saying that it's 'trendy' to diss Drake attempts to devalue any criticism, reducing your journalism to barks of 'haterrrrrz!!'. Free speech is alive and well here, and while Drake is stylistically new, he hasn't proven himself yet - nowhere near.

    these niggas dont live half the shit they say. there is no real. its entertainment wwf. the hate is real tho. but u only are making classic music thats changing people if their trying to kill u. rather its positive music ( ex john lennon or biggie) or negitive ( tupac) rappers bring hatred upon them selfs, cuz listners are raelly going through it, and they want to relate to someone who is creative. they waste their time w u all the energy money thats invested then their artists just put out bulllshit songs about the same ol shit that people are sick of hearing that only lil girls and women w no fathers can relate to. drake will fall off one day. everyone falls off maybe except eminem kanye and outkast. jay z needs kanye to sell records nas wont sell shit lil wayne is slowly falling off. hate to quote nsync ass nigga wiz khalifa but he said " the quicker ur here, the faster ur gone."

  • DavidDaniel

    Another sad attemped in the hands of hiphopdx trying to make Drake popular again. The real reason people dislikes Drake is because of how fake he is. He doesn't deserve to have the fame he was getting. Now he will go away like Ja Rule did. Only time will tell how fast that will happen but it looks to me that it already has.

    • @ohh

      Nigga, I just explained why Drake is fake; he claims to be a nice, sensitive guy and then claims to be a tough guy throwing up gang signs then runs away from a confrontation.

    • ETL

      If you don't know what's fake then what's the point in arguing. He's an industry implant unlike Jay or even Rick Ross (fake too)who still you can trace their rap beginings and saw come up, while Drake just decided to rap after being in some kids show.

      U fucken bitch ass niggaz cant stand another black man getting money. He did not talk about catching bodies, he talked about someone around him catching bodies. Everybody knows Drake is soft so why are u going at him for being soft? So Jay is hard for stabbing someone? Drake almost broke Chris Brown's jaw with a bottle, does that mean he hard? U fucken bastards kill me. Leave the kid the fuck alone and let him do him. All you internet warriors are some pussies in real life.

      Wow Drake is fake? How exactly? Please tell me

  • Real Talk

    At the end of the day, Drake has no control over your life. So why do you give him so much attention? Why are you so obsessed with his success? Why is it that every YMCMB article, you constantly feel the need to share your feelings over and over again. Face the facts, Drake is an entertainer and has a certain affect on you, because deep down you really like his music. You would not click on a song that features Drake, unless you like his music. So why click it? To see if it changes your mind how you feel about him? No, thats not the answer is it. The writer of this article must feel dumb after reading his article. You spent all this time venting about Drake. Why? is he that much on your mind that you felt the need to vent, this writer is probably one of the many YMCMB haters that post on this site. Talking about you used to have Drake in your Ipod for parties and the ladies, yea righttttttt. He knows deep down he was a fan as well. And every one is taking "Catch a body" line to serious. The actual verse is "Your gonna make someone around me catch a body like that, Noooo don't do it please don't do it, because if one of them goes in we all go through it" where is he stating that he will actually murder someone. And if your going to hold him against that one line. Y not hold every one else against their lines as well. How many rappers are shooting people on the daily. How many people has Jay Z shot and killed? How many people has Nas shot and killed? How many people has Rakim shot and Killed? How many people has Biggie Smalls shot and Kill? All have rapped about shooting they guns. You guys forget that this is just music and music is entertainment. Once again I don't know what was the purpose of this article, unless maybe because it was a slow news day, and everyone here knows that YMCMB articles get the most views and posts. So HHDX knows how to get people entertain. Make a article disliking Drake so all the readers will feel Like they accomplished something because a writer for HHDX dislikes Drake to. HAHAHAHA suckas, so you mean to tell me that, before Drake got the Alliah tattoo and before his song "Headlines" and Before the remix to the "Back that Azz Up' and before the "Knee injury" and Before the "Ashton Kutcher Prank" and before the club incident with "Chris Brown" before he was introduce to "Rhianna" Before the disses from "Common, Pusha T" before all that Drake was considered Cool? Cuz i remember vividly everyone giving Drake props with So Far So Gone mix tape. The likes of Nas, Jay Z, Bun B, Andre 3000, Eminem, even Common said he respects Drakes music, T.I, all these rappers who are respected amongst the Hip Hop community have all shared the same feeling towards Drake, they all said he's a creative and good Artist. That headline couldn't have said it any better."Jealous ones envy or at least hate"

    • Real Talks Mom

      This nigga real talk is emotional (hence his interest in Drake) You asked a question as to why people who dont like Drake click on an article about him. The guy a couple of comments above stated that because his favorite artists have dissed Drake, he wanted to see exactly what the author thought it was trendy to diss your favorite singer. Dont get mad at people for having an opinion. If anything, you should stop coming to hiphopdx. Did it upset you to hear that the author removed Drakes music from his iPod :( If so, im sorry to hear that. But life goes on playa! Stop getting emotional like Whellchair Jimmy and find a new rapper to suck off. This was one of the realest articles by HipHopDX and i stand by it! Whats up with YMCMB being soft? Lil Wayne kissin baby, Drake writin love letters in his albums, etc. Why dont you spend the time youre spending defending Drake (which is pretty sad and lame) and write him a screen play or somethin? Anywhere on the lines of a romantic comedy would do! hahaha!

      Okay you claim to not like Drake, you've read the article already, why are you still here? Answer that, no immature "DickRide" comeback. Talk like a civilized human.

Hell you probably went to some of his concerts.

      Die, dickrider. This website was created for many reasons and the comments section is one of them. This is one of the places where people can express their opinions about shit. Unfortunately, trolls run rampant here, hence why nobody takes this site seriously. You Drake stans are annoying; catching feelings when someone doesn't say anything positive about your hero. You should change your name to Bullshit Talk because that's all you're doing, bullshit talking. Go have your period somewhere else and then hang yourself, bitch.

      hahaha still dodge the questions, The shit I type is simple but yet goes over your head, lol. How is that possible? To that nigga that said he came here cuz the title had his favorite rappers in the titled. Nigga read the title over again. No where does it mention Common or pusha T. So try again next time, matter a fact there mentioned in the second half of the article hahaha. So that went out the window. To the guy that keeps saying how does dick taste. You tell me, only a man who has dick on their mind all the time will keep saying shit like that. take your homosexual thought outta here. and to the little kid who wrote about the 1st amendment, what do you get out of reading an article about someone you don't like? is what i trying to find out. Because its not just this article its every article, it could be Drake "Drank a bottled of Fiji water" and someone would have something dumb to say. y'all some haters at heart, its not about "drake can do no wrong" its look at how hard your trying to bring him down. But its cool I don't expect no mature intelligent people to respond on these sites, So i guess im just wasting my time....

      you're the only one who's butthurt here. how many times do you plan on getting back to an article about a guy that you claim to hate? admit it, you click every Drake article and song because you're obsessed with him. You simply can't grasp that he's still hot and still dropping fire. That's what you do, just making sure that what you heard was real. Over and over again. And you talk shit about him because you're mad that you love his music deep down and you can't stand to it because you would lose face otherwise. The people we hate the most are always the ones who impressed us with things that we can't do.

      There you go again dickriding. Everything you said was a bunch of bias BS. Why are YMCMB haters here? Because they can. It's a COMMENTS SECTION!! Niggas are allowed to express how they feel about particular artists, whether they like them or not. So STFU and go listen to Take Care or something like the other Drake stans.

    • @Real Talk

      This isn't a post for one of Drake's latest songs. It's an article on why some of my favorite artist (Common, Pusha, etc) diss Drake. So to answer your question, THIS is the reason why I'm here. The title of the article clearly states, Why Dissing Drake is Trendy (and sometimes justified)...I wanna know why the author of this article thinks that disses toward Drake are justified. I haven't checked for a Drake song in years, so Im definitely not clicking on posts about his new music. But, when an author wants to break down and analyze my favorite rappers disses towards the R&B crooner, I take notice like guilty simpson and read up on it.

    • Real Talk

      I aint no female, but look at you guys, no can answer any of the questions i asked? Why are you here? What is about Drake that makes you come back to every article? WHy are no other rapper held accountable for what they rap about? To say Im dickriding clearly states that point that I addressed were right, you can not comeback with a intelligent comment. Where in my post am I 'butt hurt" where am i "dick riding"? How am i talking shit about every else? I am really curious as to why you guys come back everyday to the YMCMB articles, and why did this writer really fell the need to vent? Like I said obviously I made my point, and you cannot disagree with what I said because its the truth. No where am i being Bias. And once again as a Drake fan, i came to this article to see what is was about, my question to you is why are you here?

    • Real Spit

      @Real Talk, Ive seen you post in Drake's defense a few times in this post. How much is he payin u my dude? face it, Drake caters to the ladies which is fine, but I think that he should be classified as R&B or Hip Pop at the most. You seem very emotional over someone else opinion about Drake...but you would expect a male fan of Drake to express his emotions deeply! and im out!

    Well, I wouldn't know considering the fact that i'm not a homosexual. Furthermore, i'm not even going to dignify that with a response, because unlike you i'm mature. I don't have to resort to hiding behind a screen and insulting people. I just wanted to get my opinion across.

  • C Note

    Well, personally I disagree with the author on some points. First of all, how can you blame Drake for his so-called "successfully challenging traditional notions of masculinity, class and gender roles"? Listen to 90% of the other mainstream artists, Lil Wayne, 2Chain, etc.. What's the message behind it? Nothing positive, that's for sure. I can relate to Drake music, why? Unlike most of the people that hate him, I've experienced the ups and downs to being involved in one. Nowadays, rappers only rap about either: Pussy, Money, Drugs, or Weed. The only rappers that I can listen to are: J. Cole, Nas, and Drake. Secondly, if your going to diss Drake ATLEAST come hard, I wish I knew common in real life because his diss, along with the others that i've heard (only referring to this year) suck. Common had one good line, which was when he said something about Canada Dry. Pusha T sounds like he was talking, thats the worst by far. Anyway, the thing i'm trying to say is why hate Drake? He makes good music undoubtedly. However, I can't disagree with the author completely. I do hate the fact that he acts tough but really isn't.

    Oversaturation is what gets people tired of artists like Drake music, not to mention the sheepish mentality of music fans. They hear it long enough they start to believe it's hot when it's really not. So when you bring up someone that's a lot better who's not getting the shine mr 10 spins an hr flavor of the month rapper/singer gets, the first thing out their mouth is "he's not relevant", "he/she's old", "nobody listens to that" who don't? you? Do you muthafuckwads only listen to what you're told you're supposed to listen? Real hip hop fans search for shit nobody up on just like sneaker collecting. You would be surprised how much better a lot of joints go overlooked that are far superior to the 5 joints we hear on the radio, not only that you might catch your current favorites biting lines or techniques off of mostly underground or old school rappers and passing them off as their own, and ya'll eat that shit up. So fuck radio they digging themselves a hole. KRS said best "I rather have hundred thousand true heads by me than a million fake fanatics behind me".

    Drake is one of those guys who has no idea who he is...He doesn't really have a real personality so he tries to pretend to be different things. Go watch him on the interview with Chelsea handler then watch some of the vids of him on stage popping his mouth off...Two different people. I find that a lot of black Canadians are like this...I think it comes from not really having a cultural foundation...There is no such thing as a "black canadian" identity to latch onto, so they try to borrow from outside cultures/places to create their persona....I guess Drake is fascinating to people because he tries to do it all at once...He wants to be the the metrosexual dude, the gangster, the nice guy, the baller, the cocky dude...Personally, what I think drake deep down is just a geeky, sad kid who just wants people to like him...

    A lot of people are tired of the fact that radio and television,completely ignore most of their favorite artists. Everybody has their opinions about what sounds sonically good to them. It's the fact that radio and television pay attention to only certain group of artists. Sonically speaking if you don't like the music you hearing on radio and television, your going to hate(that is what it seems like on these blogs). I brought that point up because Drake gets a lot of hate for being so popular on radio and television,I guarantee you. Just think about it. If this blogger's favorite artist was getting media push like Drake, he most likely wouldn't care about writing this editorial at all. A lot people are hating the artist, people need to hate the big media companies. Big media companies have the power to put out a balance of Hip-hop/Rap music. Drake style is one form of rap. If media shed light on artist that rap about other things(Politics,Economy,just about everything that doesn't deal with money and hoes) that people can relate too, it wouldn't be a problem at all with what Aubrey Drake Grahm is doing. At the end of the day if you don't like drake music, you don't have to listen to him. You the consumer have the power to decide who you want to listen to. Its pointless to hate on this man success.

  • iamhiphop

    This is a good article. At the end of the day, making fun of popular artists is something that's been happening for a long time. To quote an earlier post: "Ja Rule & Nelly both had more succesful runs then this kid ever will, and today we treat them like the biggest pieces of shit to ever bless the mic. What makes you so sure it wont happen to Drake." Let's be honest; Drake's rapping skills are average. He's also a below-average singer who uses auto-tune. He happens to knows how to write successful songs about money and hoes, just like every rapper out there. But since he signed to YM, his shit has really dumbed down to Wayne levels, making them unlistenable. His music appeals to females and young kids, hence his commercial success and why most dudes won't listen to him. In records like Marvin's Room, he's very emotional, TOO emotional. It sounds like he's about to cry, especially when he does his R&B thing. And in records like Headlines and The Motto, where he gets his brag on like most rappers and talk reckless, it sounds very comical, because this is a half-Jewish guy from Canada who started in a teen drama as a cripple. Another reason why most dudes won't listen to Drake is the same reason why they won't listen to Ross, Wayne, 50, and half of all rappers out there, they're not credible. All Drake is is just another hot-at-the-moment R&B singer/pop rapper. His shit won't stand the test of time.

      I don't need to listen to his fucking albums to know he's whack....HES WHACK. I listen to HIP HOP for SKILLS! Not because the person is famous or gets pussy. And the sad fact is you motherfuckers don't get WHY hes famous, WHY you think hes so dope. Its because his record label PAYS radio, magazines, and MTV to PLAY HIS SHIT AND TELL EVERYONE HOW DOPE HE IS!!! And you fags believe everything that they say because your fucking desperate to fit in with whats cool. You got no minds of your own. REAL HIP HOP is Tech n9ne, Eminem, Pharoahe Monch, Slaughterhouse, KRS-ONE, Wreckz, Lupe, Hopsin, Obie Trice, Brotha Lynch Hung, and everyone else that you prob think is WHACK because they don't have t-shirts at Hot Topic.

    Not that I disagree with the article, but a few things you should self check yourself with: 1. the realization that writing a Drake article will likely get you more page views (i.e. more revenue) because he's popular. Thus calling out a sell out by selling out. a. Also, it's giving him more attention. 2. You could have chose any emcee to give the spotlight to, and you decide Drake was worth your time, knowing that the whole article was just a shot at him. 3. "Ive never felt compelled to publicly diss him." as you are publicly dissing him. 4. The whole article is stating the obvious. What real hip hop fan didn't already know all this? Was it really worth the effort? Unless of coarse, again, your goal was page views.

    • R.Pgh

      I'm not even a fan of Drake. I don't have any of his albums. I'm just stating the obvious. Dude wrote an article of why it's cool to 'diss' Drake and points out he doesn't like him.....then why take the time to write an article? Page views = money You can't call someone else a sell-out and a gimmick, then use their famous name to make money off of, without being a sell-out yourself.

  • honesty

    Im gonna try to break down what I see: The real problem I see especially w/bloggers & most of ya'll on this site or other hip-hop sites is that though you guys claim you "h8 YMCMB" you guys comment on every song. Their songs receive the most views & comments. Kanye said it best a few yrs ago"Im still da nigga you love to hate". Why do u guys feel the need to comment on every song that Drake & Wayne is involved in? For example, I dnt like Rick Ross. But I'll never go to every song that gets uploaded to this site jus to comment on the fact he was a C.O or that he's overweight or raps about the same shit(how much $ he has,his imaginary drug business). U lames do da same shit on every Nas/Jay-Z song. Who gives a fuck about their beef dat they had years ago? Y is dat shit so important to alot of you when it has no affect on you?. It's different on hating some1's musical talent & being a h8er. A h8er (like most of u bitch-made niggas/whiteboys,latinos,asians or watever are)simply hate artists for being successful. U guys will bring up shit like "Wayne kissed Birdman" or "Common smashed Drake's career" on every song. WTF does this have to do w/their music?.... Most u IN THE CLOSET H8ERS will continue doing these things and be annoying becuz dis is how u guys enjoy life. U wanna start an argument about stupid shit and get a kick out of it. SMH P.S.-Sorry for the long post but I tried to fully express the dumb h8ing foolish shit I see from most of the viewers on dis site. I know it annoys alot of us who jus wanna hear the music and talk (or have an intelligent argument) about dat.

    • blah

      I agree dat there will be more idiots on artists who suck but my point is dat if u h8 some1, y wud u be so interested in their music? I guess u have to be an idiot to keep commenting an artists dat u h8 tho so ur right about dat.

    • yo

      Of course you do have a point but i think your missing some things. One if yiu pay attention the quality of music an artist makes directly correlates with how many idiots comment on it. For instance there's these below average rappers(2 chains, sacks, red cafe, future, even people I sometimes listen to like Ross or jeezy make monotonous mediocre shit most of the time.)and this is gonna sound pretentious but there's way more stupid people who listen to cheesy mainstream music then there are who listen to de la soul or blu or gang star or brother Ali. You go on a de la soul song comment section and you don't see the stupid arguements. It's like going to a private owned store you like and mingling with a bunch of cool people and then you go to walmart for the same thing and everyone sucks. The more people the bigger the likely hood of douches.

    The thing is that there will always be an artist(s) that "the people" love to hate. I like to hear good things on websites. It's enough negativity out there. At least Drake is original. I listen to the radio and I can't tell one artist from another. I would like to see more compelling originality in the rap game. I will give Drake one thing, and that's the fact that he is more honest than just about any other man I've heard step to the mic. And that's pertaining to actual feelings. I gotta respect a man for keeping it real from that perspective.

Its about expression and just because you can't relate to another person's journey and expression of their own life in their music doesn't give you a right to hate on them.

I don't have emotional/women problems, money isn't the center of my world, and spending money on strippers is pitiful. On that subject, why does every nigga from Big Sean to Fab to Drake to Ross make songs about how much they spend on a chick in a strip club? It's still trickin because it's their job to take your money and make the club richer. I'm sure after the cash goes, so does the hoes. I mean, even Young Buck used to fly on private planes.
