Seriously, why do people hate Drake so much? Sure, he does brag about money and starting from the bottom, but he's a lot more respectable and respectful than the other rappers out there. If anything, people like Kanye should be hated instead of being glorified. Just because Drake has "no swag"?

Just read any of Big Ghost's reviews on anything he's done. He captures the essence of Drake in the best possible ways

Read this one for example: http://bigghostnahmean.blogspot.com/2011/11/big-ghost-presents-take-care-review.html

Kanye is glorified because his musical talent, yes everyone thinks he's an asshole but his music speaks for itself..mostly his older stuff too. The dude has 21 grammys. Has one of the best grammy speeches of all time, gives me chills.

As for Drake, most people see him as a poser and tryhard in the game. Everything he does is completely commercial, and it's a running joke that he's wayne's bitch cuz he signed to him. I think now he's trying to be more creative and make more 'real' music but he'll always be that canadian jew from degrassi..

his music is dope imo. The thing that annoyed me about drake is when pusha t took shots at him, he didnt say shit. But when pusha threw shots at wayne, he wanted to act hard and say some shit. Idk i thought that was stupid.lol

this.

His music is trend follower bullshit built for the masses in an era where corny add generation gimmicks and gentrification is the hip thing in hip-hop. I'm not mad at the man for finding avenues to succeed in in life, all the best to the guy but his music tends to be shallow and boring aside from a few features where i can stomach his shit if I pretend i don't already know who he is.

You ask why do people hate Drake, I don't hate the man. But I ask this, because I can't comprehend, what is there for a straight man or anyone with a knowledge of music interested in drake? What is the appeal? Do people seriously not get tired of a goofy canadian spitting the same 2 songs over and over again, either something extra soggy and suss about women, or the played out im cool and richer and better than everyone raps, all of this occasionally spiced in with corny untrue lines about a lifestyles hes blatantly never been about. What is the appeal? Do you like the beats his rhyming over? Is his soft bitch-made voice relaxing to listen too while bathing or something? Does he low key give those still in the closet a feeling of comfort and belonging?

Honestly, he does have musical talent it's just that he makes himself an easy target with the simping songs and corny lines. The other reason is he tries to incorporate r&b themes into rapping which is a miss for a lot of people. I just remember listening to So Far Gone when it dropped and thinking 'wtf is this dude rapping about?' because there wasn't really anyone in the game that did it like that. He takes on personas that he might not necessarily fit because everyone thinks he's still a canadian teen actor.

tbh i've heard him flow smooth and i see his own style on his better moments, but i've never really heard him rap about anything beyound the im ballin im better than you or the r&b steez. I can see how he's done something differen't, but it was just using a differen't combination of shit that was already poppin. Personally the style does not appeal to me, if I want to listen to some ignorant baller shit or some self reflective ill spit hard about how great I am there are dozens of artists imo do it better than drake, and if I wanna listen to some RnB this is for the ladies shit, I also think there are dozens of artists who do it better than drake. We are just having our own opinions and its all good too each their own, but im not just talking about judging him based off his past and his look, he obviously has a very limited lane that he serves which I have no interest in, but I don't see anyone else hailing him as a musical great or an awesome rapper besides himself and his crew. Artists beyound that range who defend him tend to do so because from what they say he's a nice guy and shows ppl love, which is nice but doesn't make me anymore interested in his music.

His lyricism sucks. There's no way I will ever see him as a rapper. He is just a "hip hop artist" to me.

I was thinking that myself, you guys think he'd get a different response if he wasn't affiliated with Young Money?

niggas haven't always hated YM. Niggas only starting hating it when Nikki Minaj and Drake came out. When Curren$y was still at YM everyone loved it.

I think you guys got it twisted and John is on point tbh. Cash Money and Young Money gentrified the fuck out of themselves and Drake and Nikki popped that era off.

Drake bums me out a lot of the time. I dig his flow and he ain't a bad lyricist either, but he's really inauthentic and corporate. Most of his songs are just trying to appeal to masses of teenagers instead of building a unique fan base and becoming a classic. He's a hypocrite too, likely as a result of having ghost writers. Sometimes he talks about being yourself, respecting women, and how everyone is beautiful. Other times he talks about the opposite, and by having ghost writers, trying to appeal to the most people possible, and sending conflicting messages, he is himself guilty of not being himself. Now I don't know whether his apparent sweet side or apparent tough side is the real Drake, but as soon as he picks one and starts putting out something unique, I'll appreciate his music.

All rappers are liars and hypocrites, I don't think that's the biggest issue. The thing with Drake is that he's the first real "superstar" of the social media age . We hear and see so much shit about him that after a while it gets annoying.
