Hip hop has never dealt with an artist like Drake and it has taken a lot of getting used to because he both raps and sings. A decade ago, Ja Rule made this popular, but it was clear he was no actual singer. In the case of Drake, he can out-rap most of the rappers and out-sing most of the singers.

Several discussion forum joke sessions have gone in on the popular Toronto emcee, but this one is uncharted territory. This time, Drake’s jokes were visualized in the “Drake is the type of…” video.
