Lil Wayne was the Real Winner Last Night at Gexa Energy Pavilion

Drake vs. Lil Wayne Gexa Energy Pavilion, Dallas Sunday, September 7, 2014

Cards on the table, I think Drake is shit. For the life of me I can't see the appeal, and it's not for lack of trying. I've peered inside the music, taken a few strolls, and always came out empty handed. However, I suppose credit is due his way, if only for the fact that he's brought emotional fragility (along with his childlike dopey-ness) to a genre notorious for its unsympathetic personalities. There's never been much room for sensuality in hip hop.
