Drake Deems Himself “The First Person To Successfully Rap & Sing”
‘Take Care’ crooner Drake recently put himself under the microscope when he bragged about his musical abilities to The Jewish Chronicle.
“There were people who incorporated melody before me,” he says, “But I would deem myself the first person to successfully rap and sing.” A tad bit cocky wouldn’t you say?
Drake continued, “Yes, there are aspects of it that are new in the rap world. But it’s not a gimmick. I just sort of exist and people embrace it. I’m one of the few artists who gets to be himself every day. It doesn’t take me six hours to get ready and I don’t have to wake up in the morning and remember to act like this or talk like this.”
He also stated that he’s young and is living wild and free. “I’m 25 and single. I’m not supposed to care about deeper things right now, I’m supposed to be wild. But there are nights when you sit back and wonder, ‘Damn, is this right?’”
