In a recent interview with MTV News, Shyne said all Drake is an actor from Canada that studied Kanye and Lil Wayne:
Corny dudes stick together, he’s another one. What does he do? He’s an actor from Canada. So he just studied Lil Wayne, studied Kanye… he studied them and he just acts like a street kid?
These dudes couldn’t exist in the Raekwon, Ghostface era. If Big and ‘em was around and ‘Pac, c’mon man, they’d have these dudes for lunch.
That’s my problem with this culture, you can say anything you want, you can promote anything you want and nobody’s held accountable, and then they’ll say that I’m hatin’. I would really prefer Drake to sing about girls and sing about being a good kid from Canada and whatever that entails.
