    *yawn* at Beanie aka Mac

    *yawn* at Drake’s accomplishment when it not only was Jay he passed it was also Wayne, Em, Nas, etc. Jay didn’t put out as many radio singles as Drake so it was bound to happen AND it’s a totally different time with computers and the internet. No comparison and no accomplishment. He’s still Drake compare to who Jay is and will never be considered a great or the frontrunner for any generation when the Greats are still rapping 20 years later.
