  1. I really like the content of your feature story. It is well written and clearly describes Drake’s history. I would like to hear more about what album you liked the best and why.

    • First let me start off by thanking you, Nothing Was The Same I would have to say is my favorite Drake album due to the emotion Drake has put in it. The output of emotion an artist delivers on a beat keeps me listening to that artist This album displays the full extent of his sensitivity. I noticed he is one of the few rap artist that explains vividly how his personal life is affected by music and fame. I feel as if Drake takes this album and writes in it as his personal diary because of how blunt he can be.
