Who said it: Drake or Anne of Green Gables?

A certain little red-headed girl was droppin’ sappy prose a hundred years before Drake’s hotline ever blinged.

This week, Drake dropped two songs as a teaser to his hotly-anticipated new album, Views From the 6. The album is a heartfelt reference to his hometown of Toronto and takes its name from the city's 416 area code.

It's no surprise because Drake is a pioneer of "sentimental rap." But in a country renowned for its sap, is Drake the syrupiest of all?

It's hard to say, because there's a certain little red-headed girl who was droppin' sappy prose a hundred years before Drake's hotline ever blinged.
