“ It’s not that I don’t enjoy your music…It’s just that I feel like I’ve heard your music before. I keep wondering what the real Ray Charles sounds like….who’s he…nobody if you don’t know” Bea to Ray (Hackford, 2004).
Welcome to this week’s Blonde Intelligence with me, Ms. Roni, where I always seek to give you exquisite cranial repertoire. I was browsing on YouTube and saw someone that uploaded a creation and it said “Drake Type Beat”. I was like what??? You know me, I decided to ask and put it out there. This week I spoke with a producer and I asked the question what is a “Drake Style Beat”, he laughed and said ion’ know, but you’re going to make some ni@@as mad. My honest question is, how can you be original, being a replica? And the question remains: what the f@ck is a “Drake Style Beat”, “Jeezy Style Beat” or a” Lil Wayne Beat”? So, I asked a local independent artist and he also laughed, but described it as a beat that he might do a song to…so I asked, is this based off of a previous song or what someone thinks he might do? The answer I got was….ion’ know, but I see that a lot.
