Drake Says ‘I Used to be a Real Backpack Rapper’ — Say What!

In a recent interview, Drake complained that he doesn’t receive enough credit for being “real hip hop.” “I used to be a real backpack rapper. That was my thing,” the singer/rapper said. “I even say on this album, ‘I’m just trying to kick it like Ali Shaheed and Phife Dawg/ Because people really hate when a backpack rapper get rich or start living that life, dog.'” He continued to drive his point home, claiming his first hit, “Best I Ever Had” is a hard-hitting rap track. “‘Best I Ever Had’ is a real hip hop record. It’s a sample with some gritty drums. I’m rapping on there. It’s not a pop record. Coin me as mainstream or pop, man, I make real hip hop records.” First of all, no you don’t. Second of all, who cares? [LATimes]

Megan Fox wants Mickey Rourke to be a father. Also she got a tattoo in honor of him on her ribs. “Mickey is such a beautiful, wonderful human being. He’s so genuine and so sweet and so talented. I just love him to death,” Fox said of her ‘Passion Play’ co-star. “I kept telling him that he needs to have kids, because I think he’s going to be an amazing dad. I hope he does that soon. … I actually got a tattoo that is sort of in honor of him. It’s on my ribs…I just love him very much and think he’s very special.” Take it down a notch, Fox.
