Drake: "I'm the First Person To Successfully Rap and Sing."

While talking backstage at one of his highly-anticipated concerts in south-east London Drake made a VERY bold statement.

“There were people who incorporated melody before me,” says Drake  “but I would deem myself the first person to successfully rap and sing.”

So... Drake says he is THE FIRST PERSON to successfully RAP AND SING. He then continues saying...
“I’m one of the few artists who gets to be himself every day. It doesn’t take me six hours to get ready and I don’t have to wake up in the morning and remember to act like this or talk like this. I just have to be me."

VOGUE | Note: Now, I am a fan of Drake's music, but I will never hesitate to call someone out when I feel they are wrong. Drake... just to name the FIRST person who came to mind... what about Ms. Lauryn Hill, was she not a successful rapper and singer?

BUT... What are YOUR thoughts?
