DJ Akademiks continues to support his stance on Drake’s GOAT status. Not that The Boy needed anyone to do it after his decade of dominance. His career as Rap GOAT and one of the biggest superstars in music was frozen with his recent Billboard Artist of the Decade award.
As we all await the arrival of his sixth studio album (10th project overall), the conversation about “the greatest rapper of all time” has gained momentum. In February, Funk Flex stated that Drake has the crowns, barring Quentin Miller’s reference tracks.
Referencing tracks or not, DJ Akademiks claims that Drake is the best rapper. The media personality recently sat down with Andrew Schulz and Akaash Singh on Flagrant 2. The trio discussed Drake’s undeniable dominance as an artist and music entrepreneur.
Akademiks went on to break down their reasoning on Drake’s GOAT status. When most Hip-Hop connoisseurs think of Rap GOAT, they automatically give Jay-Z the thumbs up. While Hov’s consistent longevity and talent are unmatched, Drake’s career matches that unmatched energy as well.
Some might even give the head of OVO the upper hand. Akademiks explains why they give the “What’s Next” rapper the thumbs up on Hov.
“Drake had a steady grip on the game for over ten years,” says Ak. “Jay was one of the top five. Some years he was 1, some years he was 2, some years he was 3. But I think what he gave the game, in terms of people, influence, its impact, people clouds their thoughts. thinking about it to say that it is the best. “
It continues Drake’s selfless nature with his stimulus package of making songs with other artists.
“I think what we’re seeing with Drake is that we give him accessories to help other artists, but that artist could have competed with you at some point,” says Akademiks.
“There is a point where if we go back to 2015, when Future was so fashionable. Perhaps Future could have toppled Drake. But Drake practically overshadowed his wave. Travis. I think baby up to a point. Charlamagne said it’s more like a baby. I don’t think Baby is the boy yet. But I think Drake is smart. Drake will never make lines in the sand. He will always collaborate, help and have those moments with that person knowing that he will survive them. “
He even compares him to Floyd Mayweather.
“He’s like Floyd in a way. He doesn’t knock them out, but it’s like, if you go to twelve with me, he won’t even know I won. “
