Why does Drake curse so much?

I’m concerned with how gay this new Drake song is, not because I’m a fan of his music and I had high hopes for the album, but because I figure I’m gonna have to hear it ad nauseum all summer anyway..

2010 already seemed set to be Drake’s year, before Lil Wayne got sent to meet Fleece “Booty Warrior” Johnson, but Lil Wayne getting tossed in the pokey (no Boutros) only serves to highlight the fact that Drake is like a more socially acceptable Lil Wayne. His rhyme style is like the Pat Boone to Lil Wayne’s Little Richard (nullus?), and the TIs don’t have to worry about him accidentally blowing his load on one of his weed carriers’ guns.

Does Drake even have weed carriers? I know technically he’s one of Lil Wayne’s weed carriers, but it’s a little known fact that weed carriers often have weed carriers of their own – especially if the bag’s actual proprietor is a very successful artist. The weed carrying can go three or four levels deep. For example, Memphis Bleek actually had his own weed carrier. Emphasis on had. I read on MTV News the other day that the guy got killed, possibly on the way to get Jay-Z a blossoming onion from Outback Steakhouse. I wonder if the weed is okay.

The fact that Drake’s music sounds like a pale variation on Lil Wayne’s music might seem like a bad thing, but I won’t be convinced that it definitely is until the actual album came out and it’s not just as successful as everything else he’s done up until this point. Lest we forget, Drake put out an album last year that was essentially his free, half a year-plus old mixtape, with a few songs taken off of it, and it sold about as well as any other rap album released last year. I’m pretty sure it didn’t even have the video for “Best I Ever Had” on it, or else I’d own a copy.

That must have been devastating news for the Clipse, who once tried putting out a shittier, commercial version of one of their mixtapes – I guess to prove that what people were saying about them cherry picking beats for their We Got It 4 Cheap series was true. I’m not even sure if it cracked the four-figures mark. Ras Kass probably made more money soliciting for donations via PayPal.

It’s not like the target market for a Drake album are real connoisseurs of rap music. They might like Drake more than they like Lil Wayne anyway. It seems like this current run of fruity to the point of being suspect Young Money singles have gotten more burn at commercial radio than pretty much any actual Lil Wayne song, other than “A Milli.” Plus, Lil Wayne is starting to disappear up his own asshole. It was one thing back when he started to compare himself to human excrement in every verse he ever kicked, similar to 2Pac riding on his ene-meez. White people on the Internets could pretend that was clever. But even white people on the Internets didn’t bother trying to make a case for Rebirth. This probably wouldn’t be Lil Wayne’s summer, even if he weren’t spending it eating shit on a shingle and sharing a shower with other guys.

Just now, I checked out this new Drake song, in this site’s Bangers section. I figured maybe it could be something to write about, plus I was genuinely somewhat interested to see what it sounded like. I’m not sure if there’s gonna be a video for that song “Over,” or if they’re just gonna let that Sprite commercial serve as the video, similar to how that Chris Brown song in which he mentioned Doublemint Gum was both the song and the commercial. (I’m thinking about chewing.) At any rate, that song doesn’t seem to lend itself to a video in which my boo Shakur could make a return, jiggly appearance. When I saw that this new song features The-Dream, I thought it might be along the lines of that song Snoop Dogg did with The-Dream – which, I’m not gonna lie, I actually kinda like. Sometimes video hoes make me like a song I would never listen to otherwise. What can I say? That’s the kind of shit that happens when the white man won’t allow you to do anything worthwhile with your life.

Which brings me back to Drake. This new song of his isn’t anything like that Snoop Dogg song, but it is like every other Drake song I’ve ever heard, in that it’s so pointlessly, gratuitously vulgar. Not that I give a shit – I spend a lot of the time I don’t spend listening to rap watching pr0n. I’m just saying. Why does the chorus to every Drake song involve him singing a buncha curse words? Did someone at the label put him up to that, in order to distance him from Wheelchair Jimmy character he played on Degrassi Jr. High, or whatever the version he was on was called? I think we all know he’s not singing anything like that, when he’s trading bars with his grandma – the one who spit a hot 16 on an episode of MTV Cribs. Obviously, Drake’s plan is to make like Ludacris and go after that lucrative hoodrat dollar, and all of the extra cursing is just a nod to people who actually like rap music. Well, here’s a message to Drake: If you want to impress me, you can save the cursing. My grandma actually did curse. She also loved to use the dreaded n-word, but only in reference to black people she didn’t like, which goes against what you usually hear about how black people use the dreaded n-word, but that’s neither here nor there. What I want to see is another video filled with images of ridonkulously well-endowed women in low-cut tops running up and down stairs, for no apparent reason.

  • BigJon

    300K first week sales

    • Brahsef

      Yeah, I’m thinkin between 300k-500k. He’ll do real decent numbers. I fucks with that song though.

    • Chi-Go

      regardless who like this fools music, ain’t no argument that this fool drake is soft as hell. Real hip hop? Maybe if realness was about being a soft ass nigga.

  • BossGame

    Another classic Bol!

  • John Cochran

    The first thing I thought when I heard that song,well I should say second after how horrible it was, was why did he throw those unnecessary f bombs in the hook? I guess to make it somewhat hiphop, even though either way its not. I can’t call it with this guy. When I first heard him he was trying to sound like Phonte from LB, now he wants to be Omarion. Well, whatever works. Bitches eat that shit up like Popeye’s.

  • http://MYSPACE.COM HELTAH SIN SAY

    THESE TWO BLOGGERS ON TOP OF ME ARE MISSING THE POINT!! IN OTHER WORDS WHAT MR.CRAWFORD IS TRYING TO SAY IS DRAKE IS A BITCH ASS FAGGOT ASS NIGGA WHO IS NOT AN M.C HE IS A POP SENSATION, WHO GIVES A FUCK ABOUT HIS LIL CORNEY ASS ” 300K OR 500K FIRST WEEK” SHIT JUSTIN BIBER DOES THAT THE FIRST DAY YOU SELL OUT BITCH ASS NIGGAS…

    • BigJon

      Except for the fact that Drake is actually pretty good. This is as close to real hip-hop that you will EVER see be main-stream again.

      Boom-Bap is (unfortunately) dead, and will sell small numbers from now on.

      Jay-Electronica will sell 25K when he drops

      J-Cole will sell 30K when he drops

      Clipse sold what – 45 K??

      Are people like you gonna support the art form when it doesn’t = $$$ ???

      Let’s see who’s corny then bruh.

  • Eric

    what the hell are y’all talking about? just cause Drake is not from the hood and he’s not talkinga bout killing people and selling drugs, he can’t cuss in his songs? that’s bullshit.

    the young nigga can rap. leave him alone and let him do his numbers.

    bitch ass haters on here hating for no reason. or is it because he blew up and your favorite “underground rappers” can’t and never will?

    ha ha, y’all stupid if y’all think that underground rappers wanna BE underground rappers. everybody wants a deal and everybody wants to get paid.

    dumb fucks.

    • John Cochran

      Damn right everybody wants to get paid, but there’e also a little something called integrity. Thats when you take pride in what you do too much to let someone else pimp you out. My poor generation, everything’s about a dollar.

  • Jerrell D.

    Major co-sign

    No underground rapper wants to be “underground”. He wants to blow up just like the next nigga that wants to blow up in the rap game.

    And it dont matter if you rich or from the suburbs or wherever you from. Drake aint trying to be gangsta. He staying true to his original self and thats all you can really ask from out of a artist.

    And I think that these niggas dont really like the song cause they expect drake to be a rapper only. If anybody listened to So Far Gone mixtape it was two songs on there that had the same kind of vibe to it (Houslantavegas and Night Off) and most people were feeling both of those songs.

    This song for the ladies plain and simple. But I guarantee the man will have plenty of songs where he going hard on the songs and coming up with some clever lines.

  • Jim

    Drake is the most exciting thing to come out in a while in hip-hop, hes got the hottest songs and WILL do numbers wethere you niggas like it or not, plus I do respect that he is himself and doesn’t rap about killin and thuggin like a lot of fake rappers, STOP HATING NIGGAS!!! LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Question to everyone that’s been complaining about Gucci Mane, OJ the Juiceman, Wacka Flocka Flame and all those other non-rhymin’ ass cats for the past year: What would you rather hear, Drake or them? If I gotta choose between them (as if there’s really a choice), I’m runnin’ with the Canadian.

  • eddiesixes

    “The fact that Drake’s music sounds like a pale variation on Lil Wayne’s music”

    zing!

  • Axeo

    I do think that drake is a breath of fresh air. I mean he isn’t a super talented singer to me he just has a good voice and takes advantage of that. He is above average( compared to A LOT of other rappers) when it comes to lyrics. Lets not forget he can write good hooks.Combine those three togeather and you gonna have a hit artist end of story.

    The comment about underground artist.Ill admit some key word some want to break through and go mainstream.Lets not forget though some artist stay underground because they were once mainstream and got royally fucked over. Sometimes it wasn’t even thier fault just shady buisness and went independent.Others stay underground because they don’t want to change their style aka sell out just to make a buck.

  • Rap24

    I aint fucking with drake.I only listen to rap music,not some corny soft ass candy bullshit.This blog was spot on.

  • Mr. 306

    You’re seriously retarded man. Drake doesn’t wanna impress you…

  • sway-z

    The bottomline is Drake ISN’T hiphop, and I don’t think he would consider himself that either. Shit, half the niggas calling themselves rappers just fill they shit up with R&B niggas anyway.

    I think Drake is better at singing than spitting, but the reason why he curse alot is probably because he knows he comes off soft, so a few curses might roughen that shit up enough for niggas to mess with it, but it really dont matter at the end of the day, this nigga isn’t a hardcore artist, he’s pop, and bitches like pop so…let the nigga pop.

    If more of you motherfuckers brought albums instead of letting females do it all the time, than somebody like Drake wouldn’t be at the forefront regardless, so quit bitching and support the music you feel is hot

  • bk

    Drake’s fuckin’ ok but he does say “fuckin’” a fuckin’ lot, like he’s fuckin’ trying too fuckin’ hard, ya fuckin’ feel me?

    • eesco

      Man I fuckin feel what the fuck ur saying about mother fuckin drake. The fucker has some fuckin talent he’s just way too fuckin over exposed which is fucked the fuck up. If he was a fucking undeground mother fucker making the fuckin music he makes I think mufuckas would fucks with him more.

      I’m fucking out this mufucka

    Drake is hip hop. Drake just lacks one key aspect…a soul. He is talented and makes songs; however, drake lacks that common thread that we use to unite with our favortie hip hop artist. He does make songs. He had a style before he signed to “Young money” and afterwards everyone bit his style. It doesn’t matter what the “real” hip hop fan thinks. Like voters who know very little about politics the political agenda or the epoliticians, drake will still get the american people’s vote.

  • SI

    It’s weird how every one of bol’s posts that mentioned the So Far Gone EP prior to this one labeled it a flop, only to now point out that it outsold the majority of rap albums last year. I guess you can only deny facts for so long.

  • http://nba.com Youngin

    once again, here we go with niggas talkin bout who hip – hop and who not. most of the time it’s somebody from up north. if you muthafuckas cared so much about it, support the broke niggas you love so much. like kay slay once said, support your artist. gotta be somethin yall ass like about drake and all the other rap artist. bol full of shit anyway and if you follow him you worse off than him. when has he ever claimed to like a rapper or artist?

  • Dime Magnet

    I don’t like the song. But i’m sure other people will.

    I really think there’s gonna be a huge back lash for this guy. He ain’t gangsta and doesn’t try to be, but that don’t make him authentic. I think the backlash will be more so against the machine rather than this guy. I mean you can only fool the people for so long.

    He shoulda released an album a while ago. At least then when ppl decide to lash out he already got a gold record under his belt.

    Everything he attained is fabricated. Nothing grass roots or organic about this guy. I think time will prove this. Even Justin Timberlake is fizzling out. Drake don’t got JT appeal. not even close.

  • http://newtracksdaily.blogspot.com/ Noles506

    Drake grew up in Memphis, not Canada.

  • http://www.facebook.com/maxprofit Max Profit

    Say what yall want about Drake but leave Canada out of it and Judge him as a Man. Where you were born don’t mean sh*t.

  • sway-z

    Like I said, Drake ISN’T HIPHIP just because he raps sometimes, just like Andre 3000 isn’t R&B just because he sings sometimes. Hiphop is more than just rhyming words, it’s a culture and lifestyle and that’s part of the problem, you niggas forgot the defintion.

    Rap is what you do, Hiphop is what you live, and there’s nothing about Drake’s life that’s hiphop, and it’s not because he wasn’t poor. Will Smith wasn’t poor either, but that nigga was Hiphop, period. Just shooting a basketball don’t make you an athlete and just rhyming words doesn’t make you a hiphop artist. He’s a musically inclined person who can do different things, and that’s it, so why expect his album to be full of punchlines when he’s never come out like that in the first place?

  • strayz

    WTF?? There’s only one f-bomb in the hook? Does that really qualify as “gratuitously vulgar”??? Do you even know what the words gratuitous and vulgar mean?? Unless all you’ve been listening to all your life is sesame street I don’t see where you get the idea that this song is vulgar. WTF is so vulgar about it??

    I think this entire blog was just an excuse to harp on your obsession with drakes music video. Move on already. You act like you’ve never seen titties before.

    Its a shame when a guy that can actual rap and has talent isn’t considered “hip hop”, just because hes not out getting shot or going to prison. But a no talent fuck like Gucci Mane is hip hop just because hes got a criminal record? Bullshit!! What happened to back in the day when hip hop was about skill?

    • Dime Magnet

      If making it big was about skill Drake wouldn’t be there. Don’t act like he a breakthrough. He doesnt even got stage presence. Fuck outta here!!

  • Bol’s right

    Cut out the crap bout Bol – the nigga has a damn good bullshit detector.

    The point to allthe dumbass niggas writing here defending the fakeass Queen Drake is that Drake is now putting on a hard act which goes against everything he was and is. Half Negro Please – we don’t need your half Jewish ass pretending to be something it aint.

    Drake’s a pop artist, as gay as Perez Hilton so can he please cut the hard man bullshit. The only hard thing about Drake is his dick for other men. We know Drake is 90 percent probably gay so he should just keep to being an r and b/pop type hiphop artist.

    Drake/Kanye West/Trey Songz need to have a threesome.

    • melissa

      wow not trynna disrespect but your a fucking dumbass . they needa have a threesome ? talk bout having no life. Drake dont even look gay so cut the bullshit man.

  • http://myspace.com/smokingwithgod John Villanueva

    I don’t understand, you basically made obvious criticisms, and half hearted jokes. and the track isn’t that great, but I just listen to music not over analyze it.

  • strays

    So cursing means your trying to act hard now?? 90% of people over the age of nine curse regardless of race, social class, education or income. Wether your from the burbs or the hood most people curse every now and then, it doesn’t mean they are trying to act hard. Drake may have played a character on nickelodean, but thats called acting. I’m sure his artist persona is closer to who he really is than some character he played on tv so stop acting like you know him just because you watched every episode of Degrassi.

  • Anonymous

    Really???!!!…I find it very humorous how easy it is to criticize someone’s skills/talents when an artist has some notable success. I think it’s much easier to sit on your a%! and say where Drake is going wrong with his delivery_ lyrics, stage presence etc… Give me a f%$king break. This blog is some hatin’ ass BS…touche’ “go out and support those so called great “underground lyricists”…trust me…nobody wants their contribution/gift/talent remain unheard and ignored by the masses…I could go on…this is bullshit in a nutshell! Muthf%!$#? Got some real self esteem issues…amen fools

  • Jake

    lol at this article you are a dumb shit

  • melissa

    sorry to say this article has no point . your a drake hatter and dose it really matter if he curses ? this isn’t an issue to be addressing . if you don’t like his music or how he uses words don’t listen to his music , point blank . and drake ain’t trynna be anyone but him self . so stop criticizing someone you dont even know.
