    Drake is a good writer but I don’t know about a whole show from him. He’s sounding more the same on each track. I hope he doesn’t do a Canibus on us with his debut lol(Youngsters 21 and younger. Canibus is a rapper who had one of the biggest buzz’s in rap history. Killed mixtapes,album appearences and by most critics was regarded as the next Rakim. Had a horrible debut and never fully recovered. At one time he was the only emcee who would have been a challenge for em back then along with royce the 5’9)Now he’s a bitter has been who like most places the blame on his lable,the industry etc……
