All MCs have their own writing process. Drake’s incorporates a device many people use for work, nonsense or both: a Blackberry.
Drizzy opens about his artistic process in the new MTV documentary, “Drake: Better Than Good Enough” which airs June 23 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The Young Money phenom, who rose to fame from the strength of his highly popular online mixtapes, doesn’t mess with a pen and paper when it comes to jotting down his lyrics, and reaches for a smartphone instead.
In this clip from the upcoming doc, Drizzy bops to the track Kanye West produced for “Show Me a Good Time” and then picks up a Blackberry and starts punching out some rhymes.
“All Drake’s raps for eternity have been written inside of a Blackberry,” producer and engineer Noah “40″ Shebib says in the clip. “I mean, to the point where if he doesn’t have a Blackberry, we gotta go get somebody who’s got one. I’ve had dummy Blackberrys around that I just pull out for him to write on, like if he needs one … that don’t actually even work!”
