Video: Drake to Collaborate w/ Jeezy & Weezy, and oh yeah Yeezy

He also talks about writing his shit down so that it doesn’t sound like shit:

A recent video of the Canadian rapper on Funkmaster Flex’s Hot 97 program shows Drake reading rhymes from his BlackBerry during a live freestyle. Commenters on Cipha Sounds’ YouTube page, where the video first popped up, cried foul, calling Drizzy a fraud for spitting verses from his phone. But the lyricist told Mixtape Daily he’s a proud writer and that more rappers should think about putting their words together more carefully.

“It shouldn’t be your tagline: ‘I don’t even write.’ Well, if it’s not quality product, who cares? We can tell,” Drake said. “Maybe if you took the time to write, your sh– would be a little better. … Sometimes I feel like people almost pride themselves on [not writing] and kind of look at me funny when I pull my phone out and start writing, like, ‘You write? What?’ But to each their own. You gotta do what works for you. It’s a creative process. … I’ll pull my phone out in front of anybody and start writing. And say, ‘Yo, I gotta go and check this Web site [for research],’ because I know when I come with that verse, you’re gonna be like, ‘Oh, OK, that’s why it took two hours and you needed the wireless Internet hooked up.’ It’s just about quality and taking pride in yourself and having an ear. A lot of artists don’t even know when they sound wrong or off. They’re like, ‘Yeah, that sounds the same as that hit I have on the radio.’ If you don’t know when something is wrong, you’re not gonna be one of the greats. Might be cool for a minute, but … “

Drake is still basking in the snowballing success of So Far Gone, touring and getting calls from people such as Queen Latifah and Cool & Dre for collaborations. His debut, Thank Me Later, is still in the cooker, but before any official singles drop, Drizzy has a few treats in store for his growing fanbase. Expect some big-name collabos to hit the Net soon.

“Me and [Kid] Cudi were talking at the [mtvU] Spring Break, just about so many people asking me ‘When’s that Cudi record coming? You and Cudi?’ Me and Cudi gonna make it work,” Drake promised. “Other than that, I got a song with ‘Ye and Wayne. I got a song: me, Wayne and Jeezy. I got some stuff coming to just keep the people entertained until that album hits the shelves, and hopefully my work on So Far Gone will allow me to at least break into the industry in an impressive way.”

    Word to dusty cd’s on the shelf because they made most of their money running numbers.

    ^^lol word… you could always get “honest” advice from them tho..I used to fuck with Moody’s records in the BX.

    “You need to get that Black Moon CD..I sold 10 since this morning..it’s pretty good, I got one left..U want a LL Cool J poster?” (c)

    I don’t understand the hype behind this wack nigga he sounds just like wayne wtf is going on

  15. Farouq (ya thats my government) aka Nah’s Ving Rames in Baby Boy Says:

    I dont care for Drake either way. He is alright. He aint no CuDi with music

    if yall gon complain about this then yall shoulda been complainin when Budden was gettin back to back posts on Nah of him and his slore getting Mcdonalds and wipin the cold out they eye and shit

    –Thats because usually there was an entertaining video, a song, or a shot of tahirys ass. But 80% of the time it was a song. Since so far gone dropped there have been 2 drake songs out of like 40 drakes posts (rough estimates), and both of them have been features.

    This is a ‘what have you done for me lately’ type of climate

    ^^It’s oversaturation on the internet..if I was to go outside and sit on the corner of 125th with this post up..90% of the people would be like “Who is that?” In the real world Drake has a way to go..online..he’s made it.

    Its how music works in 2009…people accept you before you give them a good reason to..all it takes is one song(Cudi) or a cosign(J.Cole)..and you DA SHHIIZZLENIZZIT.

    –Thats some sad shit, the Viking have more trust in an Aging rival HOF QB with an ailing arm over their young ‘star’ Qb. Tavarus is going to be released after this year cause the kid from Oklahoma and Tebow are getting in the draft and best believe the Vikings are not passing up on either.

    I’m more than happy to see the success of a young toronto area artist.

    Drake deserves the success, you can tell the dude is on his grind.

    Regardless if I like his music or not, there seems to be enough bodies that do… let’s just hope he can piggy back on this success and be a little more aggressive next time.

    nah i wasnt talkin bout the monkey comment….

    i wasnt really serious just sayin, dude could be the ill realtor and be a hip hop head

    like i kinda see what u sayin but damn, these days its a race to the bottom…professionalism like chauvanism is kind of goin extinct. dudes go to work in shorts and t-shirt…shits different

    –Thats not fair tho, He left Orlando because he never had a good team around him. When he got to houston he would always get trumped by better teams. This Rockets team is by far the best team Tracy has played with and he gets injured. Its sad

  58. Farouq (ya thats my government) aka Nah’s Ving Rames in Baby Boy Says:

    thats why in my office I just listen to instrumentals and when somebody asks “WHAT IS THAT CHOPISKY” I say “Nah that is the Rza he has scored numerous films”… they say “ANY SUGGESTIONS” I say “Try ENTER THE 36 Chambers” ……..lmao

    Anybody that feels Cudi is better than Drake musically is more out of touch with reality than the Bawse.

    Don’t get it twisted, I do mess with both artists, but Drake has a comfortable lead when it comes to lyrical ability.

  74. sound verite Says:

    Drake is Dave Matthews Band

  75. jb Says:

    lmao @ the “cried foul” shit. people need to pay attention. MAJORITY of artists spit written verses, not a lot can go off top and freestyle no more (and when they do, it sounds pretty garbage, but props to them for doin it anyways). so when you talk about “so and so’s freestyle” was dope? 85% chance it was an old verse or a verse from an upcoming track you havent heard yet.

    and most people know this (or maybe they dont cuz they just dont pay attention) and i dont hear no one “cryin foul”..??? whats the difference between any other artist spittin a written verse vs. drake pullin out his phone and spittin shit offa that??? exactly…
