Drake’s new album, Honestly, Nevermind, has sparked a conversation in hip-hop about whether the project is actually hip-hop.
Irv Gotti weighed in on the debate after being stopped by TMZ at LAX, and he hopes that Drake doesn’t signal a new sound in hip-hop, given his huge influence. Irv explained:
“Personally, I love Drake. I think Drake is a great person, he’s a great human being. But I listened to his album — and Drake can do whatever he wants as an artist … but Drake’s new album is not Hip Hop.”
