Drake Gives Props To The Loyalty Of Eminem, Jay-Z, Lil Wayne’s Fans


Drake gives props to Eminem, Jay-Z, & Lil Wayne for having such a dedicated fan base. He finds it so rare for artists to come along in our generation that have such a loyal following no matter what the situation.

Drake knows a thing or two about having a loyal fanbase: His following propelled him to a #1 album in June with Thank Me Later. But when it comes to the SoundScan charts, 2010 has belonged to Marshall Mathers. Eminem’s Recovery is #1 for the fifth straight week and looks to be an unbeatable monster right now — he’s close to 2 million copies sold. Drake expects his good friend Lil Wayne to have that same success when he’s released from prison and resumes his career. Much like Eminem and Jay-Z, Drizzy asserts, Weezy has a core that has unconditional love for him.

“I think it’s so rare that an artist comes along in our generation that has a loyal following no matter what — I think Eminem has it,” Drake explained last week on the Atlanta set of his “Fancy” video. “I think Jay-Z has it, although he’s never faltered enough to test it. Jay is almost like the perfect guy. Media-wise, there’s never been a true test of your fans staying with you. Eminem has had gone through a couple of ups and downs and his fans were with him no matter what.

“I think Wayne is that guy,” he continued. “I know Wayne is the next guy, after the two I just named, that has that unconditional, no matter what. You get caught with this and you go to jail. You make little life errors that people should never find out about, but because we’re in the public eye, everyone knows everything. Wayne has those fans.”

    Drake dude, I think you need to stop mentioning Wayne in this & that. For reals though, nigga you sound Pussy Whipped! I think you need stop venting how much you wanna be Wayne, how much you admire him, how much you admire his fans…dude your not doing any good for YOUR fans. It’s one thing to admire someone as an inspiration, and another thing to look like your entire life is based around the fact that you can’t live without him. I think you can do waaaaaaaaay better off on your own. I think Young Money is taking your lime light & right now it’s all about doing YOU. because your fans care about YOU. YMCM are using you dude, to bring up them up….just like your song “FIND YOUR LOVE”, the aspect of that video is that you look after yourself, & open your eyes, and look around you, listen to yourself for once. YOu need to leave that crew & i’m saying that from the heart!!
