Degrassi rapper hits NYC

New York Magazine adds to recent discussions of people saying that Aubrey “Drake” Graham – of Degrassi: The New Generation fame – is the “next best thing” in hip hop. Despite the fact that these people hyping Drake seem to know what they are talking about – I haven’t been convinced just yet.

I saw him open for Mos Def a year ago or so and it was not memorable.

And I – unlike everyone else in my age bracket – grew up not watching Degrassi and its incarnations so there’s no nostalgia for me on this front.

In the YouTube clip from the link, he also “freestyles” by reading off of his phone at Hot 97. Correct me if I’m wrong, but that’s not freestyling.

But getting attention in New York, good for you kid.
