Drizzy Drake: The False Prophet of YMCMB (cont.)

One of my readers brought up some good points about the Drizzy post:

          "There was somethings that you didn't address that I wish you had done. Your criticism was spot on and I have nothing to disagree with you on your points. However, not one bit of it was constructive. I wish you had addressed what he should be doing instead, like getting back to what made him blow up in the first place. Instead of saying that he's rapping about life that he ain't bout, I wish you could remind people of the life he was 'bout and what made people, you, and I a fan of him in the first place. You should of addressed not just Lil Wayne bitchin him in that pic with weezy kissin that bitch, but also address how his influence on him hasn't been healthy for his rap career in the long term. You mad at him about actin hard when he really ain't 'bout dat life? So is everybody else, but we need to look hard and see who the culprit is. Somebody who has the act hard fake ass mentality but got homosexual tendencies-Lil Wayne. He got Aubrey to start doin that fake as shit. Was he on that shit before he got on YMCMB? Hell to the fuck nawww! Weezy's bitch ass was the one who put him on that shit. Killing his career at his overall expense for the almighty dollar. Be mad at Lil Wayne for puttin him on that mainstream shit. Underground is probably where Drake shoulda stayed, he woulda kept it real on that level. This is the same for every rapper who went mainstream and stopped talkin bout that real shit they was bout. Aubrey is no different. If anything, y'all knew from the start that Drake singing with Lil Wayne was just the first red flag indicator that he just didn't know any better. And he still doesn't."

Three things:

1) +2 points for your reply to my post sir.

2) Aubrey was raised without his father in his immediate home. He only visited him during the summers. We also don't know how close they were emotionally. So history shows us that when boys are becoming men...that 20/21 age is crucial to our morals and the personality we will most likely display for the next 10-15 years at least. Aubrey met Lil Wayne at the age of 21 so naturally, a man in his profession, at the success level he wants to attain or eventually surpass, is going to be the choice of his admiration. We can't help it, and some men just don't posses enough strength mentally to withstand influences even when they are far from the norm.

3) I'm definitely a fan of artists growing. Personally and lyrically. So I can't agree with you 100% that he needs or should to go back to the artist he was before YMCMB. Rapping about goons in DC, NOT BUYING  IT, BRUH. Rapping about mixing Sprite and lean, SHOULDN'T BE TRYING IT, BRUH. We've seen rappers be successful when the subject and lifestyle of their songs change. Jay-Z continues to do it. Kanye is doing it now. Lil Wayne (even though we don't agree) is doing it now as well. Judging from his music, it doesn't sound like he's GROWING. Songs/verses about being upset at artists "copying" you, being whipped to the fcuking max, constantly fantasizing about Nicki Minaj, and swinging from Lil Wayne's dwarf balls is NOT A GOOD LOOK, AUBREY!!

P.S. If I catch your bright ass wearing Uggs & Jeggings like your role model I will personally sue you for blatant defamation of your own character.

Drizzy Drake: The False Prophet of YMCMB

Before I begin.....I'm a fan of his music because he makes good records. He's still confused as to what he should do with his life so this isn't "hate" I like to think of it as a "Character Critique." 

ISSUE 1) You started acting when you were 15. You're Blu-ish (Black & Jewish). I highly doubt you had time to turn into a delinquent. You're the only one without a tattoo on your face and a cavity. You clearly look like the odd ball out in this photo. E for Effort though.

ISSUE 2) I don't always take lyrics seriously. Like, I KNOW that not every rap artist has made it from selling drugs but I can hear you acting sometimes through your music. Have you decided if you want to rap or do R&B yet? No? Well, I think you should choose one. I put up with all the singing on your latest album 'Day Care' but you know I have to draw the line somewhere....'Hate Sleeping Alone'....really dude? 

ISSUE 3) In half of your songs you talk about not loving "these hoes" and in the other half you confess to your audience that you have some women that are still living off you and you go through phones when they go in the bathroom. That's not gangsta. And clearly you and Nicki Nick didn't get married. It doesn't matter how much poosy you get...doesn't matter to me anyway it's still flags on the play.

ISSUE 4) You didn't directly respond to any of Common's blatant disses. Dude, man up. But then again it might have been a good idea not to. Us Midwest boys are a little crazy. He hoe'd you. Now people will never let you live that down no matter how many records you sell.  

See this kid, Sherbet. I used to be this kid....maybe not the ugly Jew fro, or the atrocious hairline, or the light bright complexion but I use to rock the window panes. Nothing wrong with it. I do find something with this claiming he has goons, carries weapons, or anything else that YOU KNOW you wouldn't be involved in. Aubrey you know damn well you wouldn't do anything that would possibly put you behind bars. YOU NOT ABOUT THAT LIFE, BRO! That's why you don't ride with Weezy on his tour bus, that's why we can always spot you in a Cosby sweater, that's why you do just as much singing as Trey & Breezy. And that's okay, you don't have to be a thug or "hard" just be you....minus the bitchassness.

A Smile Is a Terrible Thing To Waste

When you look back on your past can you recall your oldest habit? My oldest habit hands down has to be that I'm usually always smiling. I smile and laugh so much it's actually a huge problem for everyone around me when I'm not, to the point where the absence of it affects their day. Just like anyone else I have different moods. I've been told that my mood changes are a bit "abnormal" compared to most hetero men. At first I wanted to be upset about that observation but, fcuk it moody is rather minuscule in comparison to how fcuking cool I am. do I get back on topic....Oh, so we all have different moods, some days we're happy, some sad, some bad, some are just mellow. 

Well on my mellow days, full blown chill mode, nothing wrong, just sitting back scoping titties...I will get 200 questions of "are you okay" or "is everything okay?" from everyone it seemed. I'd get asked at school, at church, at a game, at work, at dinner. It didn't matter, if I'm not smiling somebody is going to ask me why. I used to have an adverse reaction to everyone's curiosity. We live and we learn though, and good friends are hard to go by so I appreciate the concerns now. I know there are people that have my back and look out for my well being, that's pretty cool.

As I go through my memory I can't recall any of my male friends that get asked that question as much as me. The reason I singled out my male friends is because for most it's usually only parents, sig others and maybe a few nosy people that like drama that will ask. It's second nature to ask a damsel in distress what the fcuk her problem might be or rescue a poosy from a tree but, people don't just ask young men if anything is out of the ordinary unless they're shedding tears or sporting a severe frown. When you're a likable person with an exuberant personality and a big kool-aid smile such as myself it's kind of difficult to just make a home in the "I could give two shits about that guy" category of a person's conscious. 

For a good two years I went through the most fcuked up shit ever. Seemed like I couldn't catch a break, couldn't enjoy myself for a moment before something else went wrong. It took a lot out of me. I was depressed. I didn't WANT to smile for anything. It took the consistent effort of everyone asking me was everything okay in order for me to realize they wanted to see me happy just as much as I needed them to revive my cheerfulness. It's the little things, those small moments of compassion that a person goes out of their way to show you, that should mean a lot. Maybe I'm born with it, maybe it's maybelline who knows but, I'm aware of the affect I have on other's mood and I wouldn't change it for the world. I have a smile that's contagious at times. People sometimes look to me to cheer them up and that's fine by me. From this day forward I will never let you down. I was voted best smile in High School so this was meant to be.
