I have a confession: I steal my hubby's "men's magazines."
When I see XXL or The Source in the mailbox I run upstairs, lock myself in my office, and flip through the articles. It's tough, though, when booty cheeks almost poke ya eye out. But I digress. (I really DO read the magazines for the articles). In the majority of the periodicals I've perused, rapper Drake always mugs me from the pages.
Drake has always picked my interest but I could never find a way to give my academic two cents. When the fabulous folks at Makin' It Magazine asked the question of Drake being parallel to President Barack Obama, the light came on. Can Drake be considered the epitome of flawless Hip Hop Masculinity? How does he navigate both the industry's expectations and social expectations of masculine performance in rap music?
Last name ???? First Name ???? (LOL)
See you Friday. Be easy, blog nation.
