Understanding Drake's Meme Appeal
J Thoendell stashed this in Meme
Self-promotion mastery aside, Drake’s memeability basically comes down to his image of nerdiness, Michael suggested. Sure, Drake might be famous for his feelings, but it’s really his dorkiness factor that gets him all that internet hate/love/buzz.
“I like Drake, but it's just so easy to make fun of him,” Michael explained. “I make jokes about him being soft and being sensitive, like the Sade of rap or whatever, but I actually like him. I actually kinda like that he's not so much like everybody else. Other rappers, like DMX, are far more emotional, but Drake is this kind of soft and kind of corny, goofy dude.”
