30 Reasons We Love Drake In Honor Of His 30th Birthday

On October 24, 1986 a star was born. That star is of course named Aubrey ‘Drake’ Graham.

Today Drake hit the big 3-0 and to celebrate I asked 30 fans the reason they have love for the 6 God. The responses of course varied, but one common thing remains and that is the love is real.

Check out the reasons below. Happy Birthday Drake!!! More Life.

30 Reasons We Love Drake

1. Drake Keeps It Real

2. Drake Is Himself

“I love Drake because he is 100% real and 100% original all the time. Especially when it comes to his music. There is so much truth to his words, it’s crazy. When you really listen to his music and go beyondthe beat and initial hype, the more truth you reveal. Not because he’s a lyrical genius but because he is simply just himself as real as he can be.”

5. Drake Is Passionate

“One reason why I love Drake is because he’s very passionate about his craft. He doesn’t just rap over a beat and think “well that’s it”. He digs deep within and expresses himself through his lyrics. He also doesn’t just drop music to satisfy us, he takes the time to actually perfect his craft. He NEVER let’s us down.”

6. Drake Is Super Talented And Creative

“I love Drake because he is super talented and creative. Not only can he invision something & make it happen, but he can turn someone else’s things into his own & Views was a prime example of that. Drake puts his all in everything he does for his fans & I love him for that alone. Plus did I mention how freaking cute he is?!”

7. Drake’s Voice

“I love his voice. I have liked Drake since I was 8 years old and I fell in love with his voice. He’s not afraid to be different. Drake isn’t afraid to be goofy. He doesn’t care what others think of him and I love that about him. He changed the game by rapping and singing and I love how different that is.”

8. Drake Gets Better With Time

‘I remember listening to Drake when he was first signed with Young Money and I could hear how young his voice was an how he was just trying to tell a story about himself and where he grew up at. I am a fan of Drake because over the years I can hear him getting better with each song he puts out and to be able to see and hear the growth is amazing! His music is about telling a story that everyone can relate to which is why I think he has so many fans. I have seen him in concert more than 5 times as well, and he gets better every time. Keep doing your thing.”

9. Drake Shows Love To Houston

“So one big reason I love Drake is because he shows A LOT of love to Houston, where he got his real (fame) start. On his Summer Sixteen tour, he was very audible about how much he loves and appreciates Houston and that he will never forget the city. Which is why he hosts HAW.
He loves our city and we love him.”

10. Drake Is Humble

“He’s extremely humble and always stays quiet until he has to speak out, he can keep his calm and then end someone’s entire wave right when he needs to, and I think that’s why he’s the most successful rapper -35, because he doesn’t run his mouth for no reason.”

17. Drake Is Original

“I love drake because he is so original. No one brings me as much joy as he does he is the truth behind my happiness & I know for a fact he makes others feel that way too. When I wanna just sit and cry in a corner I play my favorite Drake song of the week and pick my head up because I know that’s not what Drake would want for his fans. He is so amazing and always sends positive vibes with his music and even through many other mediums. He connects with his fans on so many levels. He always keeps it real and can put a smile on anyone’s face. Aubrey is truly a blessing to my life & everyone around him. Big up the big man on his special day. Happy Birthday Drake. Much love.”

18. Drake Changed The Game Forever

“I love Drake because of what he has done for Music. He changed the game FOREVER. Also, his music and message really saved my life because in my darkest times I’ve pressed play and always turned it off feeling better than I did before, no matter what mood I’m in Drake has a song for it, I can relate to what he talks about more than most rappers. He stays true to himself no matter what other artists or people have to say whether it’s him being a “pop” star or having it easier than most as a child, through all that bullshit he still continues to give us everything he possibly can through his music which will stand the tests of time indefinitely. He’s shown me that no matter what if I can believe it I can achieve it and reminds me FUCK what other people have to say because they’ll never understand what you had to go through to get to where you are at now. Happy Birthday to my Idol, much love DRIZZY Drake Rodgers haha!”

The most admirable thing about him is that he’s become a legend for doing everything the way he does, and thanking the people that came up with him. From starting from the bottom, his way of explaining how successful he is now and being so choosy of when he wants to show off, in the subtlest way possible… it’s greatness.”

26. Drake Has Never Switched Up On Us

“Drake has never switched up on us. I have watched/listened to almost every interview he’s done since the beginning of his career and he’s always been true to himself no matter how much sh*t people give him. He’s always maintained that sense of humor that makes him stand out the most from any other artist. He’s never let the “talk” get to him or affect his goal–which is to give his fans the best version of his story that he can give. I love that he raps what is real to HIM and what HE knows, so when he raps about the notebooks filled with raps in his mom’s basement–I know that’s truth cause I’ve seen the interviews. I know about apt. 1503 where it all started. It’s easy to admire and look up to someone who’s always held their ground and kept their head high through every challenge and comes out swinging even stronger than the last.”

29. Drake Has Grown Along With The Fans

“The man been real from the get go. From Room For Improvement to Views, & everything in between, he’s given us explicit detail about his life through harmony and melodies we’ve come to remember. He sets the tone for competitive music every year, and gives the people something to sing when they need it most. If you listen closely, you hear the truth & dedication within every vibration the OVO team creates. Before fame & after, he continues to find ways to relate, grow, & move forward with his fans.
