Aubrey Graham aka The Lightskin Keith Sweat aka Champagne Papi aka Drake is arguably the most popular and polarizing rapper of the past few years. People love to hate him; people hate to love him. For every reason Drake gives us to love him, he gives us a reason to hate him. He just makes it so easy to nitpick (e.g. this shirt [and, yes, that is Martini Moscato he's holding]).
Don't get us wrong. We don't contend that everyone should unabashedly love Drake. It's just that with so many reasons to hate on him a significant amount of those are extraneous and pedantic, focusing on who he is rather than the music he creates. Most reasons people give for not liking Drake hinge upon the antiquated idea of "what a rapper should be." Like DMX, who claimed, "I don't like anything about Drake. I don't like his fucking voice. I don't like what he talks about. I don't like his face. I don't like the way he walks. Nothing. I don't like his haircut." You can hate Drake just don't let it be because of one of these reasons. We present: The 10 Dumbest Reasons to Hate Drake.
