a black jew now that's a contradiction.

You must be joking. And by the way, the joke was worn out back in Sammy Davis Jr's time.

And believe it or not, there are white Baptists, too. Wanker.

Good decision Drake, You can always make up the concert (I'm sure its been rescheduled). This shows that fame and fortune hasn't changed you, your family is important to you and you went to be with them at this time of mourning. Bless you and I'm sorry for your loss.

You guys are joking, while I am sad for the computers loss, to call whatever this guy does music is an insult to real musicians or singers. Sorry but if all you do is talk through a computer which any ****in kid could do, you get these kind of comments. Whoever likes this computer sound or has the nerve to call this music is a jack-ass and is probably listening to there bull**** Beyonce cd.

Tyler, read my comment again. I was mocking the fellow who thought, or pretended to think, that a black Jew was a contradiction. I was being sarcastic. My (white) sister is Baptist.

HAHAHA    

People.... His job is a rythmic talker... He talks to a beat and rhymes words... Why would you go pay 50$ to see him in concert? The real talent is the guy they paid to write his beats, and the thousands of bands who write songs you remember for years to come

Song: Fear By Drake

" And my uncle aint even messaging me.
And him missing in my life is kind of messing with me.
I hope this isn't one of those forever things.
It's funny how money can change everything. "

Keep your head up Drake <3 <3

Some of you people are the biggest dumbasses in the world. Maybe he was really close to his uncle? So stfu you're probably not even going to that concert so what do you care if he cancels. He is a professional and instead of bashing you should be sorry for his loss. R.I.P His uncle.
