Is Drake a culture vulture?
Is Drake a culture vulture? It’s a question that’s been tossed around for the last three years since the Grammy award winning artist started infusing his music with Dancehall. In fact using cleverly created beats, “One Dance” became the second dancehall song of 2016 to top the Billboard Hot 100 after Rihanna’s “Work” which also featured Drake.
It’s not just Dancehall he’s been accused of appropriating but the ever popular Afro beats as well.
Drake addressed this question during a Christmas Day Rap Radar Podcast. He flatly denied the accusations and said that he couldn’t be the poacher he is described as because he always recognises the artistes he works with and also helps them to expand whatever genre he works with.
