DJ Akademiks Says Drake Is The Best Rapper

DJ Akademiks says that he thinks that Drake is the best rapper.

Ak appeared on Andrew Schulz and Akaash Singh's "Flagrant 2" podcast, where he explained why.

"Drake had an ironclad hold on the game consistently, for ten-plus years. Jay was one of the top 5. Some years he was 1, some years he was 2, some years he was 3. But I think what he gave to the game, in terms of people, influence, his impact, people cloud their thoughts in thinking about it to say he's the best," he said.

"I think what we're looking at with Drake, is we give him props for helping other artists, but that artist could have competed with you at some point. There's a point, where if you go back to 2015, when Future was so hot. Maybe Future could have toppled Drake," he continued.


"But Drake pretty much overshadowed his wave. Travis. I think Baby to a certain extent. Charlamagne said that about Baby. I don't think Baby's the guy yet. But I think Drake is smart - Drake won't ever make it lines in the sand. He'll always collaborate, help, and have those moments with that person knowing he'll outlast them."

Y'all agree?
