1. Drake Says He's the "First Person to Successfully Rap and Sing."


    In a recent interview with the Jewish Chronicle , supastar rap-singer Drake makes a bold declaration about his music and its supposed place in hip-hop history: "There were people who incorporated melody before me, but I would deem myself the first person to successfully rap and sing.” Fans of Lauryn Hill, Missy Elliott, Ceelo Green, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Queen Latifah, Mos Def, Ja Rule, Force MDs, and the Cold Crush Brothers apparently could not be reached for comment.

      Oska! .....I love all these Chatty Cathy's; chatting themselves right into the recycle bin of the culture. Save your $$ Drake; you will be the 1st something....you'll be the 1st Afro/Jewish/Handicapable/Canadian principle of Degrassi High. Nothing lasts forever; but there will always be Degrassi my man. (no shots)
