He Sings Too Much

A valid critique. A rapper should rap. A rapper should not sing. They should never sing. Ever. An artist should be one-dimensional and never evolve or venture out beyond the thing that they are. If you ask us, Jay-Z should still be rapping double time and wearing Hawaiian shirts in Jaz-O videos (I don't pop Molly; I rock Tom Bahama).

Seriously, let Drake cook (you a nice Spaghetti Bolognese). Pigeonholing artists, and demanding they only do one thing, ultimately stagnates the genre as a whole. If you don't like his R&B tracks, just skip them. Sure, he's not the best singer, serviceable at best, but he's responsible for some of the most catchy choruses of the past few years, which makes Lil Wayne saying "And we gone be alright if we put Drake on every hook" seem pretty prophetic. Because YMCMB did, and they are.

We're still a little bummed that we never got that It's Never Enough R&B mixtape Drake touted back in 2010.
