“For anybody that doesn’t believe in me, your favorite rappers do.” —Drake, XXL May 2010
Game (and his N.W.A., Eazy-E and 2Pac tattoos) was once regarded as the biggest rapper stan in hip-hop but Drake might be giving him a run for his money. The Toronto star’s crowned everyone from Em and Wayne to Andre 3000 and more as the “greatest.” He’s even expanded over into R&B, calling Trey Songz the songbird of our generation, a mix between Fergie and Jesus “the greatest R&B singer of our generation.”
Although it’s a fair for some to consider Drake as hip-hop’s fav rap rookie, that might simply be because he’s every rappers’ biggest fan. We know what it’s like to love a rapper but it’s starting to seem like Drake loves every rapper and we just want to know… who’s your real favorite, Drizzy?
Is it Eminem?
Drake surprised fans at Toronto’s OVO festival this past weekend with a surprise Eminem performance. After Em finished his verse on “Forever,” Drake commanded, “Toronto, I want you to make some muthafuckin’ noise for the greatest of all time—Eminem!” …Right before Jay-Z went on. Bold.
Is it Andre 3000?
In a recent interview with Paper magazine, Drake admitted that he has a “shrine” to the Southern MC in his house.
“I have a shrine in my apartment dedicated to Andre. I took a door off a barn and had an artists take the lyrics from his verses [and put them] on this barn door. As soon as you walk into my apartment that’s the first thing you see.”
