Since 2009, Hip Hop has been taken on a different soundscape with the likes of Young Money rapper Drake, who blends R&B and his genius raps so effortlessly into his life and trials. A fellow Scorpio like myself, Drake is an intense, charming character who is in touch with his feminine side as well as one of the best pure songwriters in music today. His buzz is only getting bigger with the stakes high for his sophomore album ‘Take Care’, as the lead single ‘Headlines’ and ‘Dreams Money Can Buy’ have Drake (real name Aubrey Graham) at his most boastful and introspective. SoJones wants to share some of our favorite lyrics from the song ‘dreams money can buy’:
Food from India, she in Charlotte Olympia’s
We talked music for hours she never mentioned ya
Can’t tell you how much I love when niggas think they got it
And I love the fact that line made ‘em think about it
YMCMB these niggas make it so hard to be friendly when I know part of it’s envy
Tryna fill the shoes, nigga so far these are empty
I take ‘em off in the house because the throw carpets are Fendi
Ohh, I never seen the car you claim to drive
Shit I seen it, you just aint inside
And I feel like lately I went from top 5 to remaining 5
My favourite rappers either lost it or they aint alive
And they tryna bring us down me, Weezy and Stunna
We stayed up, Christmas lights in the middle of summer
In other news, you might find this video entertaining, as it shows a fresher faced Drake driving an Acura and living with his mom and grandma. Even with his hit show Degrassi, Drake has charisma and the ability to ‘light up’ a room with his presence. Now with tours and the highly acclaimed Octobers Very Own festival, Drake is one of the hardest working men in Hip Hop. When do you see him out of his workplace other than to promote his newest single? SoJones loves a hustler like Mr. Graham!
On October 15th, Drake will be performing on Saturday Night Live in promoting his new album along with special guests Ben Stiller and musical guest Foster the People. Let’s hear your love for Drake in the comments!
