Despite all his success, Drake just can’t seem to help but come off as a sadboy. The Toronto rapper is a progenitor of the emo rap that’s been all the rage over the last few years, and no matter how much money he makes or how many women he lays claim to, the guy seems perpetually stuck in a rut.
Still, he makes great music, and being sad or hurt is something we can all relate to at some point in our lives. With that in mind, we curated a short list of some of Drake’s most emo bars. Check out the list and get ready for the weekend, you crybaby!
