As quiet as Drake has been lately, the conversation around him couldn't be louder. Even Kanye West called Drake the "No. 1 rapper" in a recent interview with the New York Times. Fans and critics, peers and former collaborators alike all wonder how he does it. How does Drake manage to stay on top and maintain a squeaky-clean image?
Curiosity about Drake's character never piqued higher than in the immediate moments after Pusha-T dropped his world-stopping diss, "The Story of Adidon," in late May. The song cracked open Pandora's box on the first bar, and by the time it concluded, all of Drake's alleged sins had been spilled out into the digital streets. We waited and waited for a response from Drake, and nothing came. (That is, if you don't count his Instagram press release that half-explained why he was in blackface in the image used for the diss's cover art.)
On top of the fact that Drake simply has yet to respond to Pusha-T, questions from other pockets of his life hang in the balance—questions like: Will he address Rihanna saying he made her feel weird? What the hell is up with his shoe deal? IS HE HIDING A CHILD? These are the questions that need answers. Here's everything we hope he'll finally address.
