Drake

Hip-Hop Rumors: Drake Doesn’t Want To Be Rapping In His 30’s

YMCMB’s Drake doesn’t believe he’ll be rapping anymore once he reaches the age of 35 years-old. Check out what he told i-D Magazine below:

“I personally think that when I find that person and when it is established we are going to enter a serious relationship–I mean I don’t even know if I’ll still be making rap music. I don’t know how long I necessarily want to make rap music for. You know, there are artists who are 35 and up that still make rap and that still works for them. I don’t know if I want to be that guy.

“A lot of my music is about being young and figuring it all out. I don’t know if I can still make my brand of music when I am up there. Maybe I’ll be just acting or whatever it is. I plan to make as much music as I can until a story from Drake doesn’t impact you as it used to.” (i-D Magazine)

Is Drake buggin’, or do you believe there’s an expiration date for a rapper?

  • Drake is beggin’

  • Why Drake always basing his life/career decisions on his relationships?

    • repaermirgeht

      Because ultimately, that is what life is about. smh @ you young ass niggas

  • Greas

    Dude is acting now…Why wait til he’s 35, why not go ahead and cut it now? Drizzy is already that guy. That “fake ass, garbage, f’in up the game” guy.

    • BoldSpice

      Going platinum in a recession is “f’in up the game”? Boooy STOP! 

  • immackulate

    ole bleeding heart azz niggah …

    • Negro Peligro

      Comment riding that shit. 

  • anemia716

    Keep “rapping” the way you have been and you’ll have nothing to worry about.

  • water_ur_seeds

    In Drakes case I think Hes right… His music is for young people only and partying… 

    For rappers like Jay etc they show growth in their music so they are able to sustain their career…

    How can Drake Be pushing 40 and rapping about being A bitch? Im not A fan of his, but Hes A young persons rapper…

    Rappers like Immortal Tech etc can rap till their 100, their musics always gonna Be relevant

    • BoldSpice

      And nobody will buy his shyt at 100 just like they didn’t when he was 20.

  • johnblacksad

    You mean he doesn’t wanna be singin in his 30’s?!

    ..ain’t nothing wrong with that… i see old rnB artists out there still droppin some hot stuff (R.I.P. Donna Summer)

    • Negro Peligro

      You ain’t never lied.  

  • kstaxx

    Hell yeah there should be an age limit if you in your 40’s and pushing 50’s you dont need to rap any more period. Your outdated and obsolete.

    • dats a whack statement….if u dope i dont care if u 60 bars are bars…jay z 40 something and as far as i know he still making dope music i.e. watch the throne / blue print 3…the way i see it is IF an artist become outdated and cant keep up with the time u right they should hang it up but that can happen in ur 20’s its all about the flow

      • digitallife

        @Kenneth I agree partially with that..Jay primarily now just picks hot beats and most of his verses are just fillers..he ain’t the same and even he’s admitted that..even that new york track is hot without him on it..n*ggas in paris=all beat..verses are straight wack!! It’s all about beats and a hook now much like it was in the 90’s..when lyricism started to fade to promote fantasy hautte living at the hands of puffy.

      • i feel u on that and jay flow has fell off. But I would say thats because of the comp… there is not really no one out there that can push him like it was in his hay day. but the point that i was trying to make was that there is no age limit in hip hop. be it beats or flows if u can make relavent hot music the people going to fk wit it no matter what ur age is. just because u 30 or 40 doesnt mean u should stop. hip hop is still a young genre of music compared to other genres, so unlike years ago, there is an audience for the 40 year old rapper…tru hip hop fans will always listen to hip hop and the older fans will always stick who they grew up wit. just like our parents and grandparents stick wit their oldies 

      • jamaicanbornanbreed

        jay’s rhymes is watered down……it’s like a rum and coke at the clubs

      • i can dig that, but he will always sale with the generation that grew up on his music….its like an OG….the OG aint as turned up as he was as a young thug but all of those who witnessed and lived thru his thugg’n prime still fear what the OG is capable of u feel me

  • Negro Peligro

    Man every comment on here has me dying. 

  • brotha_man

    theres always a Jimmy Brooks role somewhere….this dude is lame and soft as cotton.   Rappers rap in there 30’s for their love of hiphop and $$$$ shows how much respect he has for the rap game. singing azz Negro

    • 2twelve

      respect for the rap game f outta hea if only you knew what was going on in this industry its all about a dollar its at the end of the day from the moment they decided to rap it wasnt about nothing eles but money fame and respect drake dont owe your rap (Game nothing ) and what rappers in there 30s you knoe still hot from when they started and dont say jay z even with the growth his not hot its a young mans game take time to see what his tryna say its like jeezy going on 40 in still talking bout the street selling coke killing people

      • Bruce Sykes

        No. Your an idiot. Jay Z doesnt rap for the money anymore. He’s got all the money in the world. Eminem is the highest selling artist of the 21st century, And he has stated publicly he raps today for his love of the game and for respect.

      • 2twelve

        hope off eminems and jay z bruce your still stuck in the 90s dmx is not coming back jadakiss is never gonna be popin he rambles to much who eles ugh all the old rappers who you like myself couldnt wait to see how far they would take hip hop is doin exactly what drake talking bout making mixtape with the same shit for the last decade bitches money weed and other bull shit still has bars but cant except that if you ain’t got it you ain’t got it the theory is brilliant embrace and except that drake is not an emcee his an artist theres a reason for when theres 4 5 rappers on a track with drake people base how good that track is off what he said an how his flow was now tell me im lying dont belive go listen to ido with jay z and 3000 jeezy and drake he stood out and wheather you wanted to admit it or not he did and for the record eminem is no where near the higheest selling artist of the 21th century what happen to michael the beetles the rooling stone kiss theres no proof but word of mouth that he is its just like when lil wayne said he was the greatest rapper alive your mind train it self to belive that even doe you knew it wasnt true but you still associated him with the claim with eminem its diffrent he train and broke you without saying that his the best lyriscist story teller nun but yet u still stuck that his the greatest to ever done and dont tell me you dont belive that

      • digitallife

        I could pull 10 rappers from the 80’s and 90’s that would hand any one of these young dudes their collective ass on a platter within 16 battle bars..don’t even go there kiddo..it’s one thing to spit about champagne, broads, and money..it’s another thing to actually rap..which 9 out 10 of these “HOT” dudes don’t do today..put a million bucks in front of drake and tell him to write a track telling a story start to finish..come back in a year and he still won’t be half way done….any idiot can talk about clubbing and living it up over a dancing beat..

      • jamaicanbornanbreed

        yes my brotha school this young cat….i can’t believe he tried to put kiss and drake in the same category….BLASPHEMY……the difference is JADAKISS CAN ACTUALLY RAP…drake can’t…..and drake did stand out on those tracks…..he stood out because he didn’t belong….he had da whackest verse on all those songs…this kid is an actor he should jump back in that wheelchair and wheel his criple ass back to degrassi…..

      • BoldSpice

        Not so much player, you can put them in the same category because Jada put his azz on the same songs with him.

      • jamaicanbornanbreed

        lyrically hands down drake can’t hang with anyone on the lox..expecially alqeda jada….cmon bold u are a student of da game…i know you know better than dat… 

      • BoldSpice

        Hellz no. He can’t fukk with Jada or Styles on the lyrics for sure. They may be in the same category but not the same class. Sheek don’t always bring it like he should though, so maybe.

      • brotha_man

        he did that for sells not cuz he’s an MC. KRS, method man, mos def, and rakim are better MC’s but because most Rappers today want the white vote instead of the black kiss choose drake. As long as styles P keeps it street he will always be better then Kiss

      • BoldSpice

        Sounded cool but not so much. You reaching now dude. You would have a hard time finding 3 and a half of them. But aint nothing wrong with dreaming is it?

      • Jay

        why do you old generation keep saying ‘i can name 5 rappers from the old school that can etc” ??

        thats not the topic nor the reason us ‘young generation’ trying to tell you people LISTEN OPEN you’re ears

        you can not rap about the same shit for years 

        run dmc was not the same in the 90’s no more because gangsta rap was born

        slick rick,rakim, etc was not the same in the 90’s because bitches money weed lyrics was born

        late 90’s naughty by nature and such was not the same because ‘the cash moneys,ruff ryders,no limit,roc-a-fella,’ rap dynastys was born

        then they fell off because early 2000’s the eminems and such was born

        rap game has a age limit and years limit

        you can name many rappers that can spit better then drake and others the fact is they will not have a good career at this stage

        every era every generation has a different sound

        i wish u old neggas would see that & stop trying to make it seem hiphop been all about spitting about the gov and shit

        happy gumdrops following from the sky get real

      • Bruce Sykes

        Your an idiot. He is the highest selling artist since 2000. Look it up on google. And yes as a man from detroit myself I put eminem in the top 5 to ever do it, how can you really say he’s not? And mr. jackson, the beatles, and the rolling stones have sold alot of albums, BUT SINCE THE YEAR 2000 EMINEM HAS SOLD THE MOST!!! The beatles haven’t made a record, nor have the stones, or kiss. All you have to do is look it up.

      • 2twelve

        no your the idiot its on record that the highest seling artist are the beatles 2 elvis presly 3 madonna 4 michael jackson 5 elton john 6 led zepplin 7 queen and this list is as on 2012 eminem is not even the highest selling rap artist 2pac all eyes on me album is the highest hip hop record still selling till this day and why is it so hard to belive that eminem is not on my top 5 his probrably number 12 type shit you thinking mainstream theres millions of rappers underground way more lyrical then eminem who now just rambles on pop songs

      • brotha_man

        you gotta to be white boy wit the commits that your making. your not making in sense prolly on of them skinny jean wearing skateboarder types (aka sucka boi)

  • I am sick of lame ass “artists” pimpin the hiphop game, pimpin the fans, acting like they belong in this culture and putting up a fake image/branding of a “person” a character…make believe…it is called make believe, make people believe till they buy, once they buy, take the $ and dip because you are too grown for hiphop….a culture that YOUR BITCH ASS DID NOT HELP CREATE AT ALL….U my friend are a cunuck fo life, you have never been and will never BE HIPHOP

  • digitallife

    “I don’t wanna be rapping at 35” son you ain’t rapping right now in your 20’s, let us know when you actually start rapping…cause all you’ve done is harmonize using digital note manipulation and practically doing spoken word..

  • jamaicanbornanbreed

    1st of all syndey….this is a rhetorical question…ur pop loving ass knows the answer……as for aubrey he should quit rapping RIGHT NOW…..if u wanna call whut he’s doing rap….i call it singing ur pop ass of an acting like ur a badazz when u really a bitch…..sorry i digress….no hip-hop shouldn’t have an age limit…hip-hop is forever…some of my favorite  underground artists are in there 30’s….the only reason why u dumb bastards think it’s for young niggas is all ya’ll listen to is mundane shit…..oh my swag or bitch this…or my guns go off….or i’m on a gwap hunt..or i be in the trap with my niggas….hip-hop has way more topics than dat….but you all dnt listen for those purpose….keith richards is so old he used to smoke with the 12 deciples…son is still doing music…why is hip-hop the only music with a time limit…..this is why us pursists say the shit is dead because you fools dnt plan for hip-hop for the future….drake could rap in his 30’s if he would evolve in to a more rounded rapper…but he aint lyrically inclined for dat….and same goes for most young rappers out there….rap about politics…situation for the poor….rap more about trayvon…wallstreet coruption..history….the upper natural essence of life….your child…the 1%….rap about having love for moms…something dat everybody can relate to not just money….u think a rapper in his 40’s couldn’t rap about raising is daughters to be respectable citizens…..now most of u saying aint nobody gonna buy dat but i say if its marketed correctly it would because theres plenty that can relate to such things…no other music has time limits..u2 is old as shit and dem niggas still touring….johnny cash did music till he died….why not rappers?

    • 2twelve

      some time i wonder is this illseed writting under  jamaicanbornbreed giving his opinion on a nun journalist level this man be on point with everything but i notice kid go off specially when its about drake

      • jamaicanbornanbreed

        well twelve…i’m deffinetly not illseed….i dnt even agree with most things he say….and yeah i have a special distate for aubrey….i just think it’s not fair dat there is an influx of real lyrical talent EVERYWHERE….in every hood….yet this herb leaps frog everybody cause the teenie bops thinks he’s cute and because of his jewish blood the labels open up the door for him….plus lyrically i think he’s whack…and i hate it when he says he does hip-hop…..he does pop….and he aint da doppest from canada aye…….i think kardinall and shoclair is better….but yes i loathe drake….and illseed is better than lace….but dat aint saying too much

  • BoldSpice

    That’s what they all say and then at 45 years old they trying to squeeze another album out. And again chill with the hate if you don’t like it don’t listen to it and definitely don’t comment on it. Shyt getting old. Welcome to America freedom of choice and all that. Take advantage. Besides dude aint no more pop than Common making songs with Colbie Cailat.
