Firing Off Friday: Drake

Hello good people,

And happy Friday to ya!  I’ve decided to start something new called Fire Off Friday.  On the occasional Friday, I will use my platform here to get something that’s been bothering me off my chest, or to share some revelation I’ve come to.  Essentially, I will be “firing off” my opinion.  And with that said, let’s jump right into this.

This week will be more of a revelation than a rant.  I’m not sure what happened, or how it happened, but all of a sudden rapper Drake has become fine to me.  I know people might be thinking “where have you been, this man has been fine for a long time?”  However, I’ve honestly never saw it for him.  Now I’ll admit, in the past he has been on the occasional magazine cover and I thought to myself he was cute.  But never until now, did I think he was sexy.  So again I say what happened?  I’ve actually thought about the answer to that question in the place a lot of men do their thinking.  In the bathroom on the porcelain La-Z-Boy.  LOL!  Here are the theories I’ve come up with.

Bye Bye Jimmy and Degrassi!

When I used to think about Aubrey Graham, all that came to mind was Jimmy on Canada’s version of Saved by the Bell, Degrassi.   On the show he was this young lanky light skin boy, with a slightly awkward afro.  And even though he hasn’t been on that show in some time now, when I looked at him I still saw Jimmy.  However, this past year he has gone from like Jimmy to big Drake.  It’s like the old folks say, “he has grown into his looks.”  He went from child actor to grown man.  If you don’t quite get what I’m saying here, look at some pictures of yourself back in high school, or college, and look at yourself now.  Hopefully, you’ll look at the difference from then and now, and be ready to cue Nicki and Bey’s “Feeling Myself.”


What a Gym Will Do.

A few muscles will do a body good.  Drake has noticeably been transforming his body in the gym.  His arms are getting more defined, and abs are coming in, and he’s sporting healthy thickness.  He had me like “go ahead!”  Not sure if he has a personal trainer, is on Herbal Life, or what.  But he should keep up the good work.


A Beard Can Make Any Man Fine

Listen!  Something about a man being able to grow a full beard exudes masculinity and sexiness.  A beard will take many guys with naturally boyish looks, or just cute looks, to a whole new level in terms of his attraction.  Deep down, many men know this.  Why do you think so many guys are attempting to grow them?  It’s not because of a laziness with shaving.  I’ll tell you right now, the maintenance on a good and healthy looking beard can be daunting task.   And the facial hair Drake is rocking has several people, including me, feeling some type of way.


Let me make it clear, I’ve never called Drake ugly.  So if you’re in his fan base and ready to jump on me, pump your brakes!  I was just not that attracted to him.  Unlike many a man and woman, someone being tall, light skin, and rich, does not make me instantly hot in the box for him.  However, I’ll give anyone their props when they deserve them.  And Drake does deserve props.  Again not sure if he is fine now due to one of the theories above, or a mixture of all three, but ladies and gentlemen, Aubrey Graham Has Arrived!!!

That’s Fire Off Friday for you,
