When it comes to making jokes about Drake, there's simply too many workable angles. It's easy to make fun of his melancholy tendencies or his ever-so-soft singing voice. The Drake meme ideas are never ending at this point and it's fair to say that the media is fairly critical of young Aubrey. Here are five reasons to reconsider Drake slander:

Drake’s lyrics are extremely tweetable.

If you’re trying to update your friends and family on some sort of social media, Drake lyrics won’t disappoint. Depending on your mood, you can select from classic lines like “I just want to be successful” or “Sweat pants, hair tied, chillin’ with no makeup on” or even “I wear every single chain, even when I’m in the house.” You can effectively communicate with the world using Drake lyrics and luckily, he has lyrics for almost every emotion!

He won’t respond to your diss record.

It doesn’t matter if your Drake diss becomes song of the year and sets the hip-hop blogs a blaze. Drake told us a long time ago that he wouldn’t be tempted, "Diss me and you'll never hear a reply for it." That's like a kid giving up his lunch money before the bully asks for it. In some respects, it shows that he knows how to pick his battles. History teaches us that responding to a diss is always a gamble and it can have serious consequences if your bark is louder than your bite. Remember Ja Rule? Where is Ja Rule? At the very least, we can say that Drake knows his lane.

He didn’t pick his name. Nobody asks to be named Aubrey Graham. It sounds like your niece’s favorite ice cream flavor. He's trying to make the best of it.

You like some of his songs.

You know you do. No matter how much Drake slander you throw around, there is a Drake song that you know the lyrics to and you might even bop to if no one is looking.

He understands his strengths.

Drake’s first and second album were well received but the third album was the ultimate test. Drake needed to create a solid album while advancing his sound and he more than delivered. With premier production and classic Drake flare, he solidified his position in mainstream music.
This may not be enough to convince anyone to stop Drake slander completely but it gives credit where credit is due.
