    that's a pretty dope freestyle, but i would never have guessed it was drake. maybe when he's going off the top of his head he flows way better, that just sounds nothing like his usual rap style which to me is kinda boring, slow, and mediocre.

        There are no real "freestyles". Modern "freestyles" are just written verses over a popular beat. Drake was just rapping then. His buzz before that was nonexistent. I and like 3 people I know were the only ones bigging him up. This drops in 07, and he turns into an up and coming star. Easily one of the best tapes this decade. Drake was hungry then.

            I tried listening to Drake before he was with YM. CCB tried putting me on with him multiple times. I just can't sit through a whole mixtape of his.
            J.Cole sings his own hooks too.

            How can you not like Drake's voice, but like J.Cole. They sound really similar. Drake uses a Memphis style slur delivery that makes his voice sound dope.

            I don't think Drake and J Cole sound anything alike. Although it might be that everytime I hear Drake he is singing.


            Drake>>>J.Cole easily. Cole is a worse rapper and doesn't make as good music.
            That is your opinion. I like J Cole better and think his music is better.

            Like I said I tried listening to him before he was with YM. Drake has been out for awhile. I'm not someone who finds out about people after they get signed. I try to hear people before they suck.

            Great in the sense of he is popular but I can't even think of a song that I like by him. I know I have liked a couple in the past but nothing that stuck with me.

            We as Ravens fans are clearly scum of the earth, and should just be happy that these great people, who cheer for nothing than the finest, morally impeccable players, playing on the finest, most morally impeccable teams, will grace us with their presence, and words of wisdom.

            • i just feel the same as rwo. drake doesn't do much for me. he's really not a bad artist, but i just don't think he's a great rapper, or even a good one. he's solid, but makes up for it with catchy hooks and sometimes dope beats. i like a few of his songs, i don't actually dislike him, but i think he gets way way way too much love for being only a decent rapper.

              • Yup. I agree with rwo and sbh, I like J Cole a lot more than Drake...

                • I don't think there is anything wrong with liking Drake and I'm not saying he sucks. I just don't get down with his music. You can say him and J Cole are similar but doesn't mean I can't like one and not like the other.

                  • Before I heard Cole I had heard he was like Drake, but honestly I see the comparison less every time I listen to them. Drake has a ton of flare and catchiness but a lot is because of his punchlines, singing and R&B influences but their content isn't the same at all.

                    I like J Cole's rapping better than any new(ish) comer.

                    • J.Cole talks about women and sex as much if not more than Drake. He says ***** way too much.

                        • I literally like maybe 3 Drake songs (November 18th, Uptown, Killer). I like it better when he just sings hooks (Money To Blow, 4 My Town). J. Cole's Warm Up was in heavy rotation last summer, and right now he's got three songs that still get spins (Grown Simba, Dreams, Losing My Balance).

                          I don't really have anything to say for my sig.
