Who’s In Drizzy’s Fave 5?

In an upcoming issue of People Magazine, Drake reveals his top five favorite rappers of all time and what they mean to him and his success. Check out what Drizzy had to say about each one.

1. Lil Wayne (of course)- “It’s hard as a rapper not to become repetitive, and he always has a new way to make it fun.”

2. Andre 3000- “If I wasn’t myself, I would want to be that guy!”

3. Kanye West- “I’ve never been so moved by a person’s entire career. He’s the guy I’ll tell my kids about.”

4. Nas- “He influenced this album a lot. I had to break down how he raps.”

5. Jay Z- “You look at [other] rappers from his era, and they couldn’t transcend generations. But he’s still completely relevant.”

Jamaica Loves Drake & Young Money

Cash Money/ Young Money, all one big family. The Birdman recently went out to Rochester Hills, Michigan, to be a surprise guest on Drake’s Away From Home Tour. Baby joined Drizzy for “4 My Town (Play Ball),” and after the show Drake shared some downtime with the multimillionaire CEO. Sitting in the Birdman’s tour-bus lounge, Drake told us about his recent trip to Jamaica where he shot the video for the Kanye West-produced “Find Your Love,” a track on the June 15 LP Thank Me Later.

“We went to Kingston,” Drake said. “We went to this ‘hood. They call it the ‘gully’ side. It’s bad out there, real bad. They had ‘Young Money’ sprayed on the gates, ‘Drake and Wayne,’ ’cause I came to shoot the video out there. I’m talking about you drive by people’s homes, they had ‘Drake,’ ‘Young Money,’ ‘Drake, Welcome Here,’ ‘Drake We Love You’ — crazy sh–, man. It was so crazy. This dude was like, ‘Original Weezy tha God! You tha boss! Weezy tha God!’ It’s crazy. They love us, ’cause we show love out there.”

Drake And Jay-Z Collabos For The Future?

We got to work a couple nights, actually, we did a few joints and from what I hear we’re going back in to try and get some more stuff done.

Jay has been one of the most special people to me in this game. I don’t think I’ll ever forget the nights me and Jay had in the studio, and the things he’ll tell me and just the way he embraced me. It’s one of the best feelings in my life. Jay is one of those guys that you can say, ‘I look up to this guy,’ or ‘I like this guy’s music.’ I wanted to be Jay. That’s what they say about the best artists. To be a great rapper, men gotta wanna be you and women gotta wanna … you know.

I wanna be myself, but for me to say, ‘If I couldn’t be me, I wanted to be that man’ — that’s huge. … To have that man in my life and to be able to interact with him and talk to him and, best of all, work with him — there’s not a real sentence I can say to describe it. Hopefully Jay and Drake are as powerful as Drake and Wayne. I hope people see that union and it comes up more than once in the future.

With Drake, Trey Songz Makes Another Case For His ‘King Of Remixes’ Title

Canadian rapper Drake’s “Best I Ever Had” single is not only a smash for him, but it’s becoming one of the best remixed tracks of the summer. The latest entry comes from self-professed “King of Remixes” Trey Songz, who dropped his track via his Twitter account.

In the studio tryna paint a musical Picasso,” he wrote of the track.

It’s not the first time Drake and Trey Songz have collaborated on a song — they previously released “Successful” and “Replacement Girl” together. In the remix of “Best I Ever Had,” he tweaks the lyrics slightly, so instead of “Baby you my everything/ You’re all I ever wanted,” it’s now “She said I’m her everything/ I’m all she ever wanted.” The track retains the same charm and smoothness as the original with an extra dash of theatricality and swagger care of Songz.

Just as we did when comparing Songz to fellow remixer R. Kelly, I took the temperature of the Newsroom to see what the prevailing opinion was of Trey’s “Best I Ever Had.” The overall consensus? Hot!

In addition to tossing off remixes, Trey Songz has signed up to be part of a new collaboration called Ocean’s 7. The group consists of Jermaine Dupri, Usher, Nelly, Bryan-Michael Cox, Tyrone Davis and Johnta Austin. The group takes it’s name from the film Ocean’s 11 and was apparently created when Jermaine Dupri and Bryan Michael Cox were in Las Vegas working in the studio with Usher. The group, who fashion themselves after the original Rat Pack, has already dropped a mixtape called 3000 and 9 S—, as well as a video for a song called “So Much Swagg.”

What do you think: Is Trey Songz the current remix king, or is there somebody else out there churning out superior tracks? Leave your thoughts in the comments…

Drake: From Degrassi To Rap Royalty

The Canadian hip-hop artist (‘Best I Ever Had’) has built a huge following with a gift for melodies, powerful allies and savvy management.

By any modern measure of musical popularity — YouTube views, radio airplay, ring-tone ubiquity — the single “Best I Ever Had” by Toronto rapper Drake is not only a hit, it’s arguably 2009’s “Song of the Summer.” Since debuting on iTunes last month, the hip-hop lust track has sold 600,000 digital downloads and topped three separate pop charts. Even if you can’t summon to mind its rap-sung vocals or brassy syncopated beat, you’ve probably heard “Best I Ever Had” blaring out of a convertible somewhere. Continue reading
