Polls is Talkin’: NextUp – Drake

19 01 2009


On my latest poll I asked Hip Hop AD readers who’s they feel is the next best thing. While the results were all close, Canadian MC Drake was the winner. You may have seen him on the hit high school show Degrassi where he plays the crippled ball player Jimmy. He has now ventured into music being a new rapper/singer signed to Interscope under the name Drake. He is also apart of Lil’ Wayne’s entourage Young Money. Being affiliated with Young Money granted Drake numerous Wayne collabo’s and he is rumored to produce Drake’s debut album Thank Me Later. Drake being signed to Interscope, radio-friendly joints, and his Lil Wayne affiliation gives him the potential to be the next big thing.
Peep the full story to get Drake’s latest mixtape and peep the rest of the poll results.
