Drake On Why He Hates Social Media
 

 

We have another excerpt from the November issue of The Source magazine featuring a cover story on Drake. In this section, Drizzy explains why he doesn’t have any love for the modern day social media networks like Tumblr and Twitter. He does make a lot of sense.

“I’m really scared for my generation, you know. The thing that scares me most is Tumblr. I hate what Tumblr has become. Because it like, it reminds me of those clique-y girls in high school that used to make fun of everyone else and define what was cool, but in five years, when you all graduate, that sh*t doesn’t matter. No one gives a fu*k about that sh*t. Instead of kids going out and making their own moments, they’re just taking these images and living vicariously through other people’s moments. It just k!lls me. Then you’ll meet them and they’re just the biggest turkey in the world. They don’t actually embody any of those things. They just emulate. It’s scary man, simulation life that we’re living. It scares me.”
On Twitter:

“I’ll tell you, my biggest thing was, I remember, it was on twitter. I remember the day my mom was getting surgery and someone came on Twitter and they were like, ‘Yo, Drake, I hope your mom dies.’ You don’t really mean that.”

…Like, you know you’re going to see something bad. Out of 1000 compliments, it’s so crazy. It’s basically, like, when you used to sit there as a kid, and want to know what everyone is thinking. That’s your superpower. [Twitter is] knowing what everyone is thinking.”

yes because without the internet we would have no interest in rappers or rap music in general

we would all be listening to country or no music at all




i feel what hes saying about tumblr but at the same time its not like without an outlet to express themselves these kids would actually be out living this sh*t

if bi*ch n*ggas are bi*ch n*ggas then theyre gonna be bi*ch n*ggas

he has somewhat of a point because I've always said that social media pretty much has changed the way we.......well socialize

remember back in the day before cell phones or the internet, we use to spend all our free time actually physically going out to have contact with our friends, as kids we were only really home to eat and sleep, the rest of the time u were running around the hood, socializing face to face and actually getting some physical exercise somewhat. No cell phone so you would have to end up running around the hood to find your homeboy if he wasnt at home. You would spend all day playing ball and hollering at some females IN PERSON. Kids nowadays leave school or work and go straight home and jump on the internet or xbox for the remaining 6 hours of their day. Shyt is pretty much like the Matrix, instead of experiencing things in person and physically, now we just plug into our computers and "socialize" by going through status updates, picture albums, and youtube clips. We're like zombies now. We spend more time living life through this "alternate" form of reality known as the Internet. Imagine if one day all schooling and work was done online, you'd really have no reason to leave your computer/bedroom/home. Shyt is sad.

I agree 100% with him on tumblr and somewhat on what he said about twitter. you have people hiding behind social media acting tough and it allows them to be somebody they are not in the real world. it is kind of pathetic.

Twitter is like the new age forums of the 21 century....

He's speaking the truth. People living vicariously through others. 5 years later, people have nothing to show for it but regrets about their failed past and present future and debt from keeping up with the latest "it" item. The Internet age has become the fall of man. Even at 24, I can look back and see the changes the availability of the Internet and technology have had on me. Sure, some is for the better but there are side effects. And I'm one of the sane ones. The Internet has given everyone a voice, but everyone has forgotten one major thing: No one gives a sh*t about you and your humdrum life. Make something of yourself then come back and talk later.

This.

I deactivated my FB account when I saw what was happening. It's hard to completely go away from the social thing on the net. Dudes keep telling me to come back on. I'm like fu*k that. It's bad enough with cell phones you always "know" where I am or how to reach me. You telling me you can't keep in touch with me w/o FB? Once I get started on getting to where I want to be I'm gonna be seeing less of the forums, FB, Twitter, and Tumblr. I want to actually experience life. I don't have any of those now tho. Some teens, all they have is Facebook.
