Drake to be Replaced as the Hip Hop Icon
Irv Gotti has been vocal about criticizing drake’s latest album. He believes the album is putting hip hop at risk of becoming extinct. Irv says Drake is too prominent in the Hip Hop world for him to digress too far from the regular hip hop. He says his dance version could kill the hip hop culture. Irv stated that hip hop requires a new icon.
With a majority of writers singing nowadays, it might be challenging to find a new icon who will do hardcore rap only.
In the meantime, Michelle Obama has praised Beyonce’s latest single “Break My Soul”. She tweeted that it is the song we need at the moment, and she is looking forward to the whole album. She also mentioned that the single makes her want to sing and dance when the song is playing.
