WTF: Drake Says He's The First Person To Successfully Rap And Sing
 

 

Drake isn't the first to fuse singing and rapping into his songs, but he considers himself the first person to be successful at it. During an interview with The Jewish Chronicle, the Young money rapper made the claim that he managed to one-up previously successful artists with the style.

"There were people who incorporated melody before me," said Drake, "but I would deem myself the first person to successfully rap and sing."

Drizzy says that his singing-meets-rapping style has had a trickledown effect in the Hip Hop community. "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. I just have to be me. That's one of the favourite parts of my life - I've done this purely by being myself."

I know they might not all sing and rap as equally as Drake and he can say no one has been as successful at it like he has, but that statement was unnecessary.

Drake failed hard with this comment. 3 stacks and Lauryn Hill have both achieved way more than him in terms of sales, spins and overall popularity in their day.

Drizzy's head is gettin too big.
