Hate Speech


Drake is singing about working your way up from the bottom, like starting a job in the mail room and moving up to CEO. That is more than a noble theme. When you realize that the theme of the song is pure, I ask why did Drake need to use such vile hate speech, expletives, and violence. You can rhyme words without this technique, stay pure to Rap, and get your point across. Drake violates our review criteria of use of hate speech, sexually explicit language, and violence.
