Only L.Hill 3 Stacks and Nelly. Ja Rule and 50 Held melodies but they weren't actually out there singing whole verses.. well maybe Ja Rule.. I dont know?
Nelly sung on a few tracks.. 3 Stacks had that album and I don't know why you listed Ghostface.

Drake sings more than Andre 3000, with Andre 3000 it was more of a fun/creative experiment. With Drake it's a journey into a different genre.
Well made point.

Drake isn't the first Rapper to sing and Rap. He's the first successful performer to do a 50 / 50 R&B Rap split. I'll give him that.

Out of all the names dropped, the only ones who sang and rapped equally, were

Missy
Bone
Lauryn

Maybe Nelly, the others usually focused on one and did the other sporadically

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.

Whats wrong wit n*ggas? Why they always gotta disrespect the people that came before em?
I don't know how anybody could just up and forget Bone when making a claim like that. Did Drake really forget those cats(Bizzy especially), or does he question their success.

Reading the thread title, I thought bout Monch being one of the few cats who I think can legitimately rap and sing well. Tonedeff is another in that rare breed.

Neither of them gained mainstream success, so they don't factor into what he was saying. I'd throw in DMX as somewhat of a wild card. DUring certain parts of his delivery, his verses have a melody to it. he mixed singing and rapping together with his songs. Rule came along later and did the same, but still there has been nobody who really sounded like X.

Although DMX falls into the same category as Cee lo. wherein, his singing ability is questionable. You either like what he's bringing to the table, or you don't.

Props to Philly B for mentioning Phonte.

that's why i respect the diss record luda made for drake and big sean these fools always claiming they started sh*t but they need a history lesson. drake is particulary stupid, he also said ye and hov jacked the collab album concept from him and wayne when hov discussed doing an album with biggie way before that. dumb n*gga even forgot meth and redman and hov and r kelly. 1st successsful jewish rapper 1st successful artist from canada that's all i'll give him other than that he aint pioneer sh*t
