This is Not a Drake Podcast

About the Show

This is Not a Drake Podcast is a series that uses seminal moments in Drake’s career to explore the history and evolution of hip-hop, R&B and Black culture. 

It’s about how hip-hop — and its journey to mainstream dominance — gave us Drake in the first place. It’s about the artist that turned heads with his ‘So Far Gone’ mixtape — and the mixtape revolution that made ‘So Far Gone’ possible. It unpacks rap and R&B’s long complicated history, and how we got to this moment where the line between the two genres are so blurred. It dives into the evolution of gender dynamics in hip-hop — especially its relationship with Black women. This is a series about the rapper the world sees as the face of the 6 — but it’s really about the Toronto hip-hop scene most people don’t know about… the one that made him.
