It's ridiculous. Drake is absolute gutter shite. I tend to believe that the only people who put him on a pedestal are those who don't know better. Anyone who grew up with Biggie, Tupac, Eminem, NWA, DMX, etc. would laugh at the idea of Drake being anything other than a tween pandering, cookie cutter hip-hop "artist".
Seriously... I'm listening to this album and I feel like I'm back in high school. I'd easily rank it amongst Eminem's best. I'm only "invested" in so many artists and bands, but this cracker has sucked me right back in. It's ******* phenomenal. This is one of those rare albums I'll actually go out and buy.
