Born Aubrey Drake Graham 22 years ago, Drake is the son of an African-American soul musician father from Tennessee, and a Canadian-Jewish school teaching mother from Toronto, Ontario.
What separates Drake from other rap artist is his ability to convey honesty and authenticity through his lyrics. We are a long cry from the usual aggressive and often misogynistic rap lyrics hip-hop music fans have been used to. Not to many rap artist can be (or dare to) be as introspective as Drake.
Drake represents a new wave of rap artist. Drake, along with Wale, Kanye West and Kid Cudi, is a rap artist that sings more about what he actually feels and thinks, and look less threatening than most artists. This can explain his undeniable appeal with females.
Before rapping, Drake was known as Jimmy Brooks, in the popular Canadian TV series called “Degrassi”.
Drake started to seriously raise his musical profile, thanks to a series of cds he has been releasing since 2006. This was instrumental in creating a big momentum for his musical career. He became the most talked about and sought after musician, even before having an actual record contract.
It is rare to see an hip-hop artist that is that successful, even before he even releases an album.
Drake is now been nominated for the next January 31st 2010 Grammy Awards. He will compete for “Best Rap Solo Performance” and “Best Rap Song”, against music stars Eminem and Jay-Z.
Drake is definitely the most popular rap artist right now. He will continue to be the most popular artist until the time he finally releases one of the most anticipated album in years, sometime in 2010.
