Anyone who counts this statement as false has yet to experience the likes of Grynch, Aesop, Hieroglyphics, or many of the other underground specialists that can attest to being worthy of being called a lyricist. Drake is not one. He writes something and thanks to his activity with social media and backing on twitter, facebook, myspace, mIRC, or what the fuck ever, his value has been overly inflated ENTIRELY too far. Honestly, if you want to listen to things with actual "lyrics" that tell stories, listen to Tribe, Big Daddy Kane, the original Outkast, NAS, Slick Rick, (early)JayZ... Hell, Nappy Roots are better story-tellers.
As I said, the comment wasn't directed to the fact that you think Drake is the best, but rather than Drake shouldn't have his name mentioned in the category of "Rap" but rather "Pop" for the fact that he is a bubble that will burst shortly. And as for the Lil Wayne being the "shits", you should listen to 10,000 bars and tell me that the kid isn't a story-teller. He's ventured into the Pop genre after spending a DECADE in the actual "Rap game"... Drake has been here for how long now?
