2000's Guilt #30: Drake "Best I Ever Had" (2009)

We didn't post guilty pleasures lists from 2008 onward, but Drake would have def placed.

I refuse to watch Drake's videos as I fear the suave charm in his music will be drastically undermined by recognizing him as the same guy who played a paraplegic basketball player on Degrassi: The Next Generation, the most horrifically compelling TV show intended for pre-teens since 1990 gave us the 1-2 punch of Saved By The Bell and Nickelodeon's Fifteen. And don't let the "rapping" fool any listeners... This shit was made for American Top 40 with just as much pop craftsmanship as Lady GaGa. - TMK, 12/28/09

Yeah, no kidding... For those who weren't aware, this sounds nothing like "Slam" by ONYX and does not resemble NWA's Straight Outta Compton LP. Cool write-up, not.
