    I don’t get why non street artist don’t make street records every now and again

    Cole loves to do the looking out my window and 3rd person stuff a lot but never does it in a first person view

    Some rappers would rather keep it 100. Drake is looking at it from an all entertainment perspective.

    I think part of it is that they’re scared of the backlash from their core fanbase

    Take this song for example, it would be so much better if Wale rapped from a dope boy perspective instead of “looking out my window”




    Now that I’m thinking about it. Cole did it on Truly yours 2

    When has Drake done this? Drake doesn’t rap from a street perspective he just makes allusions to people around him and mob boss type shyt. He doesn’t have any first person street songs.

    I always felt Drake gets a pass on the tough guy talk because he's Canadian.

    If Drake was American and was talking like that, he'd get exposed big time and checked easily.

    Drake's music isn't street. It just has a aggressive edge on some stuff.
