Charlemagne Tha God Says The Drake Era Of Hip Hop Is Over
Written by 1.02010 on December 30, 2020
It’s been years now that Drake has been considered one of the best in the rap game in modern times. He’s had several multi-platinum hits and is sought after by many in the genre looking for a boost to their own career. His hold on rap has been recognizable for at least a decade, and Charlamagne Tha God believes the time of Drake is over. He made the comments while speaking on his “Brilliant Idiots” podcast on December 24. He started off the discussion by posing the question to the listeners. He asked, “Let me ask y’all a question: Are we still in the Drake era? Is radio such a prehistoric form of media that it hasn’t changed the temperature to what’s actually going on in these streets?” One of his guests, music industry executive and media personality Wayno Clark, seemed to also feel that Drake’s reign was over as he answered: “we’re in the Lil Baby Er.” Another guest Nyla didn’t agree with the sentiments shared by the two. Charlemagne chimed in with his two cents, saying that he believed radio still made Drake popular, but that’s not the feeling on the ground. Charlamagne Tha God also said he did not have high expectations for Drake’s new project, “Certified Lover Boy”. Charlemagne is known for grabbing headlines with his controversial opinions, and this is probably just that, his opinion.
