AGain I'm not here to say what should/shouldn't offend people but the blackface thing I thought was a valid explanation. It was an art project/short film made by dudes based in Toronto which seemingly missed the mark and may have been distasteful. It is what it is. I don't think drake is lying here...
where has this speaking on Black issues since he been famous at? Funny he made a statement then and has been quiet since he got on....
Dont fall for it...Its no more Valid that any other PR spin in Damage control...
There is no Valid reason for Black Face. With all the schit Black people go thru in North America...you dont see us using Black face to make a point.
I can't believe the people trying to find loopholes for this guy....have they not heard his music????????????????
I'm not black, but I've listened to rap music all my life because it was the only kind of music that talked about what I saw outside my door...I could relate to the words....when did Drake ever put out a song like that? Where's his Dear Mama? Where's his Juicy?
People believing Drake's lies...where was this in his music? Whenever a rapper of Drake's caliber has come out, the first thing he talks about is his struggle and his come up, it can be financial, racial, etc...but how come we are just now hearing about Drake's issues with being a black man living in this world??????
You can see the struggle and growth of an artist through his music..this dude talks about the same crap...his lifestyle..money...fame....where was the song about his upbringing, his parents, his young life as a struggling black actor......black anything?????? It's not there because he didn't go through ****.
My theory, as an outsider looking in.....he forgot about the one drop rule and was fine being a Jewish kid in Canada, thought maybe if he put on black face he would be cool with the white crowd...white crowd equals movie roles.
But he got tired of being stuck in a wheelchair and got into rapping.............and he had to flip it....now being black would be the thing to do....oh yeah, dad did something with music, he was black too, I can do this without the Vanilla Ice jokes cuz I got cred...see my hair??? What do you mean it's not long enough to tell???
This guy isn't just a culture vulture, he's a chameleon who changes his color to suit his needs.
