Drake in the New York Times: Dedication 3 Review

" Of all the Young Money comers, the most promising is Drake, known best for his role as Jimmy Brooks on the television show “Degrassi: The Next Generation.” On “Stuntin’,” over the gurgling beat from David Banner’s “Get Like Me,” he’s limber and funny, clearly a student of his mentor.

And Wayne, rapping second, sounds as if he feels a bit of pressure: “I went from penny-pinching to private planes/Never sat on any benches, I got in games/Starter Carter ball harder.” Phew — still got it."

This is the most well deserved journalistic compliment i have read thus far. I'm glad to see that the writer appreciated the well construed craft of "heart-break drake" rather than critisizing the actor turned rapper "turnt sanga" ...Drizzy's talent clearly has no limitations.
