It’s show time for rapper Drake as an unwavering buzz has all eyes on the industry rookie. After much courting, he recently signed a multi-million dollar joint venture record deal with Lil Wayne’s Young Money Records. However, living up to his hype may be tougher than it first appeared for Drake, who most fans laud for his MC skills and singing abilities.

Drake was widely criticized for his recent performance at the 2009 BET Awards. Unbeknownst to viewers, a torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) in his leg kept him stationary and rapping on a stool, which made for a somewhat boring performance. Drake and Lil Wayne were also criticized for having preteen girls dance on stage during their performance of “Every Girl” (as in “I wish I could f*** every girl in the world”).

Drake also recently released his debut music video for the single “Best I Ever Had.” The much-anticipated video, directed by Kanye West, features Drake as the coach of a talentless, scantily clad female basketball team. The video, which is slightly comedic with a few interlude skits, can be summed up for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet with a slight title change: “Breast I Ever Had.”

After his lackluster performance and less than impressive first video Drake may need to work harder to justify our infatuation with the Toronto rapper/singer.
