"Last name, Ever, first name, Greatest." If Drake didn't have enought street cred for playing Jimmy on "Degrassi" for six years, then we would have thought he was being cocky. But how can we hate on Jimmy? Seriously, though, Drake's new promo for his anticipated sophomore album, "Take Care," wants us to know one thing: Drake is the greatest young MC in the game.
This promo makes Kanye West look humble. Not only does the clip feature his Billboard chart-topping hits ("Forever," "Say Somethin', "Headlines") but it also shows off all of Drakes famous friends, like Rihanna and Nicki Minaj. Not to mention it boasts how many Twitter followers and Facebook likes he has. Greatest young MC or cockiest young MC?
We think we're going to have to wait until his album drops on November 14 to decide that one, but we can say, that his first single off the album, "Headlines," was a testament to the ups-and-downs of fame and the troublesome sophomore slump many artists find themselves in after a successful debut.
With "Headlines" currently no. 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, we don't think Drake will have the problem.
