Last week Drake became the center of attention on the blogs over some photo’s that leaked from a private dinner party with the great rap hope’s family and friends. And when a picture, which was clearly taken out context, hit the net suddenly Drake became a spokesperson for the gay community. Well, he’s finally addressing the rumors..kinda.
The Canadian rapper posted a note on his blog addressing the matter in a roundabout way.
From the desk of Drake: [Regarding gay rumors]
People often ask me the craziest part about becoming “famous” and I’ve never had an answer until yesterday.
“You’ll spend half of your time defending yourself and the other half trying to stay sane resulting in you being forced to find time to be creative”
I often wonder in a time where new artists exist in a impersonal cyber world of instantaneous information, if we will ever have another rap legend that can manage to maintain the image that our idols had prior to this method of promotion. I am not suggesting that this person should be me, I am just urging a generation to understand that in order to have anyone of any significance in our lives that we can look up to there will be things that we must look past. There are people that buy sell and trade evil on a daily basis…when u believe in their brand is when they win.
“Even photoshop couldn’t change me”
When he says, “look past”, what does he mean exactly. That was a joke!
Why he even felt the need to address the bullshit is beyond me. Everybody in hip-hop has been dubbed “gay” at one point or another. It is what it is. If you know who you take down in the jumpoff hours why address foolishness?
