His beats are total garbage. Lowest common denominator bullsh*t.

*Dead* @ ULTIMATE HATER. LMAO!! The Inernets gives everybody a voice for they opinion. No shots toward this man because he is living a dream the majority of us would trade for. It’s easy to just shit on a cat cuz they at a place where most aint but the reality is things just happens when it’s supposed too. The industry clings to whoever has the latest hit (insert name here) so you gotta get it while the gettin is good when your name is hot cuz when it it’s over it’s a wrap!

@ McGirt Boi wankster is a cornball ! His beats might be alright but he is a nerd. Drake is a nerd too. Drake sounds like a little kid when he raps but the young bucks swear he’s the new jay-z , he is nothing like jay-z . Jigga is the real deal . A cat who came from nothing , then slang some shit , then he dropped 100k on a single and made over 100 million spittin flows since then . Is that not what you respect ? What you idolize ? You don’t respect 2 geeks who had to work at mcdonalds dropping french fries in hot grease and making quarter pounders then went home after work and made beats with fruity loops lol Drake says he is happy to get out of his momma basement . WOW ! He really struggled ILMAO !!

yikes October 27, 2010 at 7:12 pm

Rap fans are the most ignorant people in the fucking world. Who ever said only crack dealers and thugs can make good music? Drake is a good rapper, stop being fucking sad about it. Your boy Jay-Z cosigned him anyway (“Drake’s up next, let’s see what he do with it”).

Back on topic, this was a cool video.

i’m kinda late but fuck it LOL

i took the labor and listened to the tracks he had made beats for, they’re less than spectacular, nothing remotely original that’s for sure
now dude says he’s been working with Dre on Detox, and had i watched this vid in time, by that i could make a guess as to what Detox would be sounding like, if Dre works with beatmakers of this boy ‘magnitude’
though Detox hasn’t yet been released, judging by the tracks that are out, i find my guess being not very far from the truth, which is a pretty bland record, poppish all the way, falling awfully short of his previous works

damn, the album didn’t drop yet, but there’s already a dedicated article in Wikipedia LMAO
