You might have heard about Drake’s unsuccessful restaurant venture, Pick Six.
Now, Drizzy looks to be getting into the streaming business.
The 6ix God posted a video to his Instagram, announcing a partnership with the social broadcasting platform, Caffeine, and the ultimate rap league, to produce a streaming channel devoted entirely to battle rap.
What’s battle rap, you ask?
Think the scenes from 8 Mile, starring Eminem, except less dangerous. Two emcees, no beat, teating each other down, through rhymes. (For obvious reasons, I couldn’t play any clips on 680 NEWS.)
Drizzy, releasing a statement, talking about how excited he is to get involved with Caffiene, and give battle rap a bigger platform.
Well Drake, I’ve got some news for you: so am I.
Except I’m trading in the bragging with the blessing…upon the best friend I’ve ever had: the legendary Mike Eppel.
