Mark Drake's Words

The artist steps up his lyrical game on his second album, Take Care

The message Drake ultimately wants to send with Take Care? "Just that I kept my word that I'm getting better, that I haven't lost myself. . . ." and he trails off, spotting someone across the restaurant. He goes into flirtation mode. "Oh, wow, that's a cute baby right there. What's up, boo? What's up, boo?"

The baby, sitting in a stroller, does not respond.

"She's too cool," he laughs. Shop talk resumes. "I think every time I do something people are like, 'I don't know if this Drake's gonna be around.' I just want to prove that I'm keeping my word and getting better at music, and it's not ending anytime soon. I'm inspired by legends like Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Outkast, Biggie, Pac—names that make me feel like a child when I hear them. So I'm not out to the best rapper. I just want to be the best I can for my generation."

Boyhell,

I Dj for Sirius / XM. (The show is called the Sonic Seduction) I personally feel that top40 music is shit. But there is an ARRAY of fantastic Soul, Downtempo and Indie drum machine based music. Respectfully, here's a bed of music that I put together for the Occupation Nation. You may go to:www.soundcloud.com/charlesonbl... orwww.soundcloud.com/charlesonbl...I hope to hear from you.Charles

Artistically, What's the difference between him and Ice-T? They even have the same angry boring face.

You know what. You're right. It's not Ice-T. It's Ice Cube. Ice T Ice Cube Ugggh. Move on. Seriously move the fuck on... It's Ice Cube that has the same angry boring face. And sorry the music s*** is the same.

If you can't see the difference, then you haven't listened their music and need to learn how to tell black folks apart.

I'm black. What a incredibly sophisticated response. Ughh.

Drake and Ice-T sound nothing alike, and they look nothing alike other than being light-skinned. So your comparison makes no sense, and your blackness makes it no less perplexing. (and her comment offered no assumption on the topic).
