In an interview with The Jewish Chronicle Online, Young Money artist Drake claimed he is the first person to successfully rap and sing.
“There were people who incorporated melody before me, but I would deem myself the first person to successfully rap and sing.”

It seems like a lot of the artists in the Young Money camp could use a few lessons when it comes to hip-hop history so we put together just a small list of some of our favorite songs of hip-hop artists that have combined rapping and singing-successfully!
There are really just too many artists and songs to name? What other artists and songs come to mind?
