In order to understand the video in question, you have to watch the above first. This was Drake’s first time meeting Funkmaster Flex at New York’s very own Hot 97 (the #1 radio station in the country) and the “freestyle” he kicked live on the air. He received a ton of criticism after this video was uploaded, showing him blatantly reading a verse off of his Blackberry. I’m not one of those folks who’s gonna be a stickler for whether someone kicked a written rap or something off the top of the head. But when you actually read something off of a portable device, that is kinda flaky.
Enter Affion Crockett (a funny-ass stand up comedian, most recently of MTV’s Wildin’ Out fame). Put on some fake bushy eyebrows and hold a Blackberry in front of a mic…BAM! Instant Drake! I must admit that this was hilarious (funniest thing since the Wayne / Juelz spoof). All of the extra ad libbing / banter in the beginning had tears rolling down my face. And I’m actually a Drake fan.
Shouts to Belle Jenkins, where I saw this first.
