50 Questions About Drake

Thumbnail image for Drake june21 a.jpg
Drake is in concert in Houston tonight. I'm covering the show. And I've been thinking about him a lot. So, 50 questions about Drake:

Is Drake for real? Or did he just never stop acting?

Is there anything that can be written about Drake that hasn't been written already? Did Drake break criticism? Can you defend Drake without sounding corny and contrived? Can you dismantle Drake without sounding corny and contrived?

Is Drake the greatest rapper of the Internet generation? Remember GQ ran that article on Drake, Kid Cudi and Wale back when they all had around the same level of fame? Remember that it said that the gangster persona was dying/dead? Did they become right? Is gangster rap no longer a viable (lucrative) genre? Also, how mad are Cudi and Wale that Drake grew into the superstar everyone expected while they stalled out? Are they like, "Man, fuck that big-eyebrowed fool"?

Ooh, why are Drake's eyebrows so thick?

Why did Drake make that one commercial with Sprite that made him look like a robot? Was it a subtle F You to people that criticize him for being so emotional?

Is Drake really even all that emotional? Did Drake revolutionize the way men rap about things? Why did DMX get so upset with Drake? Philosophically, don't they both do the exact same thing?

Are people still bothered that he assimilated so much of Houston's rap culture into his music? Isn't that good for everyone involved?

Can Houston claim him as its own? Or will he just always belong to Canada? Is it strange that one of the blandest countries on the planet produced one of the most divisive acts within one of the most divisive forms of pop culture?

Ooh, did you know Canada was named by accident? Isn't that interesting?

Did Thank Me Later, Drake's debut album, age well? (Should we, in fact, thank him?) Or do all of the hashtag rap punch lines make it sound wack now? Was it wack then? It wasn't wack then, was it?

Best curtain call/sign-off in HP history, Mr. Serrano.  I am no fan of Drake (hurl!!!!) but I won't hate on him either.  People like what they like.  Hip hop is what the people make it and believe in.  Best 50 questions, Shea!

Why is everyone always going on about someone else? Drake is making music, making money, and living life. You think he really cares about all these questions? Who cares?Listen to his music if you like it, if you don't then don't listen to it. As for me I am from Houston. Born and raised. I listen to Drake, and like his music. People remind me of 50 cent when they go on about other people. And to me 50 is a snitch that gets no play in H-Town.
