Drake Says He's The First Person To Successfully Rap And Sing
Drake makes a bold statement during an interview with The Jewish Chronicle.
During an interview with The Jewish Chronicle, the YMCMB crooner said that though he wasn't the first person to do it, he is the first successful artist to mix rapping and singing.
"There were people who incorporated melody before me," said Drake, "but I would deem myself the first person to successfully rap and sing."
Drizzy says that his mixed style has had a trickledown effect in the Hip Hop community.
"Yes, there are aspects of it that are new in the rap world. But it's not a gimmick. I just sort of exist and people embrace it. I'm one of the few artists who gets to be himself every day. It doesn't take me six hours to get ready and I don't have to wake up in the morning and remember to act like this or talk like this. I just have to be me. That's one of the favourite parts of my life - I've done this purely by being myself."
