Drake Well On His Way to Having the Most Polite Album Titles in the History of Rap Music

In the new issue of GQ — which names Drake one of its Men of the Year, alongside Jeff Bridges, James Franco, and Stephen Colbert — the Canadian upstart announces the name of his sophomore album: It will be called Take Care. That is an extremely polite album title! To be fair, Thank Me Later, the title of his blockbuster debut, may sound polite, but is technically a tiny bit confrontational (Drake is telling you that you will want to thank him even before you get to hear his music). Not as confrontational as, say, It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, but still, a bit confrontational. [MTV]
