Grandmaster Flash has been around since Hip Hop’s inception so he knows a thing or two about the culture.
On Sunday, while at the Grammys, the legendary Bronx DJ spoke about Drake and called him a genius.
“He is probably the only rapper, and I want to speak on his talent because he’s a great rapper, but he’s the only one, in my opinion, that’s daring enough to rap on a trap beat, to rap on a disco beat, to rap on ballad beat,” Flash told Billboard. “I would call it like a Prince formula. When Prince makes records, it does not sound like his last record. Drake is daring enough to rap on all different types of beats. I think he’s a consummate genius.”
