Drake is undoubtedly the leader of the new generation of rap artists. Despite having a catalog that every millennial hip hop fan can rap verbatim and a record-setting amount of chart-topping Billboard hits, Drizzy still doesn’t get the credit he’s due. Listen to the radio, and it’s hard to not hear the rapper’s lo-pass sonic influence.

He’s soft, he’s Canadian, he’s corny, Drake has heard all the criticism from haters. In the midst of all of the trolling, many seem to sleep on his accomplishments and flat out dominance in rap. Scoping the professional sports industry, it’s easy to find a counterpart to compare career-wise to Drake.

Drake and LeBron James have more in common than you think. Find out more below.

LeBron James is another future all-time great who’s career dominance is often over looked by what he doesn’t bring to the table. His lack of a killer instinct is comparable to Drake often being associated as soft. Lebron James is an unconventional player and a once in a lifetime talent, but people sleep on him because of who they want him to be. Statistically, LeBron James has dominated the NBA in every facet since entering as an 18 year old rookie in 2003.

My word of advice on LeBron James and Drake? Let them be great. Not on some d*ckriding sh*t, but right now we’re witnessing both peers transcend their respective crafts to the next level and if you’re too busy hating, you’ll be missing out on living through it.

I will admit, both Drake and LeBron James lack a career defining moment that will forever cement them amongst their respective Mt. Rushmore’s. With that said, let’s see what the young legends have in store for us.
