October's Very Owned
Drake - the dad-dancing, Rihanna-loving, sad-rapping Canadian - is a complicated figure in pop culture. He's an object of ridicule and worship, a muse for meme-makers who winks back at meme culture, and a global mega-star who never gets the girl. How much of this is real? What is cultivated by the man himself, and what are we just projecting? Also, how can we decode his Instagram? What does he do on Sundays, like, just chill? These important questions and more are answered by the team at Noisey, Vice's music brand, over the course of this light-hearted, month-long daily podcast, which concluded at the end of October. Special guests include an array of music journalists, the rapper Heems, and a guy who hung out with Drake for two hours one time. Requires a basic familiarity with the 6 God, obviously, but for those so equipped, it's entertaining.
