    He’s is wrong. If Drake is hated on for being light skinned why don’t Cole, TI, etc get the same treatment?

    The colorism s*** doesn’t really exist for men in hip hop

    I feel like most people don’t even know Cole is half white

    The colorism s*** doesn’t really exist for men in hip hop

    because Cole and T.I. fit the traditional masculine archetype of darker skinned rappers lol

    it’s a stereotype that light skinned men are soft, emotional and just generally feminine, Drake basing his music off of being introspective and outright open with his feelings plays into that stereotype with his skin color

    He’s right

    I’ve always found it interesting how both Drake and J. Cole are mixed black men with black fathers and white mothers, but only Drake has gotten the criticism and reputation of being a “lightskin / half-white” rapper by the hip-hop community

    One was raised an upperclass area in Toronto and was on Degrassi meanwhile Cole is from a working poor area in North Carolina ..

    But I will say Tory Lanez and Drake both have a very similar upbringing yet Drake is only criticized for it

    So then you admit color really has nothing to do with it. It’s about how he acts.

    This doesn’t really apply because Logic is from Maryland and was the child of two d***/alcohol-addicted parents and even he gets the mixed rapper treatment. Nobody ever acknowledges or recognizes J. Cole as a mixed race rapper

    if the stereotype is tethered to his skin, and he acts in accordance to the stereotype that is owed to his skin color, i don’t see how that has nothing to do with colorism

    im not good at logic but that doesn’t really seem to make sense to me

    "That said, Cole is successful and doesn't get hate at all"

    Saying this on ktt is crazy

    Ktt ain't the hip hip community. Ktt's opinions on Cole don't mean s***.

    Also a big reason behind the “Drake is not hip-hop / Drake is not a rapper” criticism is because of the fact that he’s a lightskinned mixed-race man

    Drake isn’t really hated for being light skinned not gonna lie. The only colorism that exists in hip hop is towards dark skinned women

    You remember Charlemagne making light skin bi racial jokes against drake on the radio for years, called him a pretty albino girl

    Interviews is different than like internet hate. But I think most of the hate is because Drakes success.
