In a recent interview with Elliot Wilson, Jay (no hyphen) Z talked compeition from today’s young artists and when he was asked about Drake, the world’s most popular sports agent said,

He’s definitely the one who’s read his head as the guy, he’s definitely Kobe Bryant.

No matter how I look at it, I just can’t see how Drake would be the Kobe Bryant of the game but I will give him credit for creating the most memorable rap lyrics about Kobe Bryant.  Lyrics that Kobe had the perfect response to.

Back in January, when Kobe was tweeting one morning about having breakfast with his wife, some idiot replied #SheWasn’tWithYouShootingInTheGym and Kobe replied with “No, she wasn’t. She was busy raising our kids #respectMothers.”

Speaking of Aubrey Graham, here’s a pretty amusing video I just came across of the Degrassi star showing off his crib.  I am not posting this to put down Drake in anyway.  I think it’s a great video and should amuse fans or haters of the man that Jay Z consider the Kobe Bryant of hip hop.
