Everyone is still unpacking Drake's massive two-plus hour interview with Rap Radar which dropped Christmas day.

In the chat, Drake talks about his issues with Pusha T, Kanye and Meek Mill. He also gives props to 50 Cent for helping him figure out the whole singing rapper thing.

"There's a lot of people that contributed to that. There's people that inspired me," Drake explained.  "Obviously, 50 Cent. '21 Questions' will probably be my most inspiring example of a guy who's not supposed to be singing, singing."

Although Drake said he's not going to make any efforts in reconciling with Kanye, he still acknowledged  Ye's 808s and Heartbreak influenced his rapping/singing style.

"I'll always give credit where credit is due so I credit all those people with that movement. I think I was probably the one that took it the furthest to go and making full-blown R&B songs," Drake added when speaking on Ye.

Who else do you think built the rapping/singing wave that Drake has had so much success surfing on?
