  • Considering how funny he was in that “A Brief Interview With Drake” sketch last year, I’m alright with this.

    • He hasn’t heard of you either. The good news is he’s rich and doesn’t have to care.

      • Oh yay, a celebrity worshipper has put me in my place. If this guy counts as a celebrity since I honestly don’t know any of his music by name. Not a big rap fan. Anyway, some nobody that this guy wouldn’t piss on if he was on fire feels the need to defend him to someone who has literally never heard of him. Seriously pathetic.
