Awwww...Drizzy...made top 3...Good Job...and that female was mad dumb...yea I can appreciate the fact that she likes a rougher delivery but at the same time Drake doesnt sound like a girl...You dont have to go in on him just because he isnt what you prefer...Maybe that's why I like his music so much because he's not trying to be what he isnt and he speaks real stuff...I mean WHY would he be gruff he doesnt have to follow the trend...he's no DMX...Drake is just helping to pave a new lane...and she's a lame...how can she say she has to wait to see how the situation pans out before she can jump on an artist...if you like someones music you like their music........end point.

Shaun said...

Congrats, I saw that last night my sister and I was going crazy. Anyways best of luck because I know your still going up.

Xavier said...

I can't believe that woman. lol seriously, she need to listen to some of Drake's other stuff, like comeback season. Nooo way he sounds like a girl at all. but anyway congratulations

"You don't have to be a criminal or thug to rap."

THANK YOU! I've been telling people for years. I refuse to listen to somebody just because they got shot and have "street cred" or whatever. NO! Thats not the type of credibility im looking for.

Congrats Drake! this was well deserved no matter what the ridiculous woman was saying.

Patricia said...

Congrats!

Btw, I love you Drizzy (I hope you read that ;)).

☆K.F Phenom☆ said...

Stefon said...

lacey seidman ur such a lame, what type of an argument is that " but thanks to all the haters i know g4 pilots on a first name basis" she must not like kobe, lebron, peyton manning, tom brady u get the point
" he sounds like a girl" shut up u hatin ass b*** drake keep doing ur thing u make music that i can relate to and ur lyrics are amazing

If MTV got anything right it was who they listed as the Top 3. I don't know about the rest of the list but the top 3 is dead on. Congrats Drake. You haven't even released your album yet but look at all the love you are getting! That's because you make real music and your fans appreciate that. Keep growing and doing your thing and I KNOW you will make it to the top of the list one day.

As for that one stupid ass lady I want to smack the hell out of her and I would've if I was there. First off may babe Drizzy does NOT sound like a girl. That was just plan disrespectful. She sounds like one of those idiots who thinks just because you didn't slang crack to 10 year olds you aren't allowed to rap! Who the fuck is she anyway? She can keep her weak ass opinion to herself. Drake is paving his own way in the Hip Hop game he doesn't need to follow other people's method. He's been doing everything right so far obviously cuz he BLEW UP!

Anyways love ya Drake. Add this to your list of what it means to be Successful! Xoxoxo

B. Tanner said...

Next time (unless HOV does something else amazing like his MSG return again) Drake will grab that #1 spot.

njbornlioness said...

Be real clear when I say this...I'm a woman of a "certain age", and not impressed easily. I find it refreshing to have an artist such as Drake in Hip-Hop. The fact his musical talents are being recognized in a industry that has tried to influence how we one another and ourselves speaks volumes. The honesty,sincerity, confidence, and yes the ever so slight insecurity Drake brings is a win-win for us all. I'll thank you now for what I'm sure will be more "Mind & Body" stimulating music to come. CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Thirtysomethingfanforlife said...

What a well deserved honor! Your music inspires and motivates me and is absoulutely a breath of fresh air - I so appreciate you. Thank you for doing you...continue to do you; afterall, that's what has gotten you here in the first place.

...I'm glad they're documenting what you're becoming...Congratulations! :)

P/S And to any haters out there - "He deserves this ish...He deserves this ish... He deserves this ish..."

afrika said...

I honestly was getting so pissed cuz I swear em Was gonna be on there but I in my heart you deserved top 5 no questions asked...Ive been a fan since you only had 2 mixtapes on datpiff Comeback and Room for Improvement its crazy to see how you have developed into an artist that lyrically can spazz yet instill emotion into a song and have ppl feel that...deff a rolemodel to me real talk...stay humble makes you diff from everyone else so "Thank me Later" haha cant wait...Prayin for ya

"Buzz so big,I could prolly sell a blank disc"

is just about right as of now

I agree to this MTV SHOW GUY... Drake is definitely one of the best Beat killers in the game now.

Alifexstussy said...

For some of the people diss'n on that chicks statement, What she said may of came across a bit harsh but to put it in other words she's just say'n that drake kinda has that 'softy' vibe same thing was said by "No I.D" on an interview posted on this same blog about 2 months ago He said "I would like to see him do a couple records that are lil more..I guess i would say hard".

anyways,congrats, stay up my nigga..

waytoobossy said...

::: DRAKE does not need to do anything "hard"
He does NOT need to change to accomodate any of you!
Drake is great at doing DRAKE! If he sounded like every one else or tried to become someone he isnt I would not listen to his music.
The great thing about Drake is that he doesn't sound like everybody else, he is his OWN person!

Robert said...

Very nice Drizzy!!! Forget what they think about you especially what that girl told you but your always gonna be #1 in the game to me!!.... Just do what you do DRIZZY!!

wertyo2224 said...

Drake is the BOSS #1

soda said...

I agree and disagree with some of the stuff said. I respect that ladies opinion. One of my best friends who is a female thought the same thing when I let her listen to Drake. I think he has potential to be great. But, it's good not every one is falling over themselves to praise Drake. It just means more work, for him to convince them.

ricks.kid said...

yea congrats to da boy drake .
mtv got this one rite..
but their list as a whole is a joke

congrats drizzy
t dot stand up
f dat ugly ass female talkin dwn
another hater to the list............................

Fire Boosh said...

Congrats to the home town boy, who at this point deserves all the accolades he receives. Drake lands at number 3 with no Major record label release, only on the strength of one the best mixtapes ("So Far Gone") released this year (and arguably ever). This guy knows how to take care of and raise the value of his name and brand. It's safe to say we can expect big things from Toronto's very own.

Drakes spot was definitely deserved....But the whole list wasnt on point. Gucci on the list? Eminem missing? No NAS? WOW! Did 50 even put out an album this year?

Binga1112 said...

congrats drake... well deserved we love you down here in trinidad keep up the good respectable andhonest music you put out.... hip hop seems to be getting stronger and embraced byt he world more thanks to your incredible music, in my book your the micheal jordan of hip hop in his rookie season.. not taking anythin away from any other rapper, but lyrically your untouchable, drake you are incredible

simplynhatanh said...

you deserved it!
next year its #1

Nteague1 said...

Congratulations!

Ashley said...

I luv the fact that Drake is being Drake! He's not pressed to fit in the mold of the typical rapper. You can be a good guy and come from a good, loving home and be the most amazing lyricist ever!!! <3 u Drake, never ever change. U def. deserve the #3 spot if not #1!!! The girl from VH1 is WACK, she wants a rapper to choke bishes out and deal drugs to get respect in the game?!? WACK!! KEEP UP THE EXCELLENT WORK DRIZZY :-)

Jai. said...

Congrats love!
INTERNET HIGH FIVE!

P.S. I cant wait to see this list a few years from now when J.Cole finally blows.
Who's gonna be sitting higher on that list?
I literally have $15 dollars riding on J.

Sydney said...

Honestly coming from a Fan and an artist ive studied all types of music and in my opinion i have to say that by far your music drake is some of the best ive heard in the last 10 years just by the craftsmanship and the different stylistic techniques you've used to captivate the vision in which your music is based on is amazing my dear and i am VERY proud to say that you are one of our own....and as far as the Idiots go....tell them to read a book on music.....don't fall for that ignoramus bullshit love keep your music as sophisticated as you are and i guarantee you will go WAY farther than these "hard core" rappers lol

Diamond said...

I was gonna go pop off on that dumb female but this pretty much summed it up :
"Awwww...Drizzy...made top 3...Good Job...and that female was mad dumb...yea I can appreciate the fact that she likes a rougher delivery but at the same time Drake doesnt sound like a girl...You dont have to go in on him just because he isnt what you prefer...Maybe that's why I like his music so much because he's not trying to be what he isnt and he speaks real stuff...I mean WHY would he be gruff he doesnt have to follow the trend...he's no DMX...Drake is just helping to pave a new lane...and she's a lame...how can she say she has to wait to see how the situation pans out before she can jump on an artist...if you like someones music you like their music........end point."
and word up , next year he'll be in that number one spot (:

Cel said...

That lady doesn't have any clue in what the hell she is saying. Drake is a great lyricist. Step your game up..what have you done lately, trick?

Patrick said...

I 100% agree with the top 4 MC's on the list but the rest of that list is a total joke. I respect that chick for speaking her mind however I lost respect for what she stood for. Since when did we start critiquing MC's based off smoothness? J.Cole summed up Drizzy the best.

nrebultan said...

sway said it best.. he's GOOD for HIP HOP!

Kiya said...

DRAKE FUCK THAT BITCH MAN. fuck that bitcchh shes just some dumb hoe. your the fucken best man fuck that shittt

"I officially hate #MTV ,they played the shit out of #Drake ,first #JayZ violates and doesnt give him the verse on Off That then this happens"

nah but dead serious tho thats really foul, i wouldnt be surprised if drake quit rap on that shit (which I hope he doesnt, cudi scared me last time), but that really foul un- Music TV

AddyNightLife said...

Well deserved
Hard work pays off

YoungSirDiz said...

bailey said...

Although we may not be the most patriotic of nations, as the Canadian ambassador of hip-hop Drake makes me proud to be Canadian.

Nova Scotia loves you– please come to Halifax!

DRIZZY DRAKE'S GIRL said...

DRAKE YOU ARE GREAT..

Lexie_chicago_xoxo said...

Hard work pays off. Yes, all the ladies are on the Drake bandwagon (me included) but so what, respect when respect is due. the other chick is right, you can't drive somewhere with out hearing Drake on the radio. "You on top of the World!" lol now don't go Britney on us. xxoo

Yvonne Kai said...

the proof is in the pudding, drake and his team has been working hard, grinding for many many years... it's a beautiful thing for him to get everything you all deserve and more! :) it is very important to be true to you and true to your form as an artist and i think he has done that very well and everyone is proud of him. 1 love TO

G. Cornelius said...

Whats funny is these cats that say Drake needs to make something for the streets have to be new listeners. They need to do a little research...Comeback Season, The Last Hope, Must Be Money, Asthma Team, Easy To Please, AM 2 PM, Scorpio's Mind, S.T.R.E.S.S, November 18th, Say What's Real, Uptown...WTF are those? This is the reason why the game is so f#@%ed up now. You gotta be on the block to get street cred. Like Wale said..."I've never claimed to be a street dude. The only time I bent over pots were to make cheap noodles. Do you dudes appreciate a nigga's truth? Or would you rather me making up some shit I didn't do? Or who I didn't shot? What brick I didn't move. I guess I can't make music, because I went to school?" And that is what the industry "experts" are pushing. But I heard the hardest dope boys on the block riding to So Far Gone...I guess somebody has the wrong info.

*OctoberBaby*ScorpioLady* said...

For someone 'Just tryna' place in the rankings'...You cleared 7 hurdles on your first leap! #3 Is sweet. Congrats. Well Deserved.

fiftyjr said...

I think Drake should have made #1 on the list. When "Thank Me Later" drops, I WILL buy it

Agelina said...

Yep, I am one of the true fans; I even got my grandmother listening to him...she says he's like her coffee with extra cream...lol! No, I am not kidding!

Yeah, and that female was really not feeling him...hummm...how could you not...he is hot as fire. He spit crack...bag it tight!

I luv you Drake!

Ambir said...

i agree 100% with them saying that Drake is a breath of fresh air!! i love that you have your own style Drake and you are changing the game! i got tired of hearing all the bullshit artists who have nothing to say and make rap look bad. Drake is bringing hip hop back to its roots where the focus is the lyrics, but putting his own spin on it at the same time. Love, love, love you Drake. keep doing what you do, you're gona go so far!
