Drake Claims to be the First to Successfully Rap AND Sing
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.”
Our course this caused a stir among hip-hop heads (both young and old) with almost everyone referring back to Ja Rule.
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?
