Complex’s 25 Best Drake Verses of 2010

Complex Magazine is back this week with the 25 Best Drake Verses of 2010. Drake came into the year with a huge buzz following the success of his game-changing mixtape So Far Gone in 2009. He released his debut album Thank Me Later in June. The album went number 1 and was certified platinum. The “Over,” “Find Your Love” and “Fancy” were successful on radio and elsewhere. Drizzy went on tour and sold out venues around the world. He is currently working on his sophomore album Take Care.

25. “Fancy” (3rd verse) – Drake feat. T.I. & Swizz Beatz
24. “Un-Thinkable (I’m Ready) (Remix)” – Alicia Keys feat. Drake

21. “What’s My Name?” – Rihanna feat. Drake
20. “Gonorrhea” – Lil Wayne feat. Drake
19. “In The Morning” – J. Cole feat. Drake
18. “Put It Down” – Bun B feat. Drake
17. “Poppin’ Bottles” – T.I. feat. Drake

12. “Up All Night” – Drake feat. Nikki Minaj
11. “You Know, You Know” (2nd Verse) – Drake
10. “Thank Me Now” (1st Verse) – Drake
9. “Show Me A Good Time” (2nd verse) – Drake
8. “Over” (2nd verse)
7. “Right Above It” – Lil Wayne feat. Drake
6. “Fireworks” (2nd verse) – Drake feat. Alicia Keys
5. “Aston Martin Music” (Extended) – Rick Ross feat. Drake & Chrissette Michelle
4. “Light Up” – Drake feat. Jay-Z
3. “Miss Me” – Drake feat. Lil Wayne
2. “9 AM In Dallas” – Drake
1. “The Resistance” (3rd verse) – Drake

Complex says: It’s a tough call picking between the second and third verses on “The Resistance.” Both are excellent, emotional guilt trips as reality sets in on young Aubrey Graham and he’s forced to deal with everything from his grandmother’s living conditions to abortions by past lovers to having guns shoved in his face. We give the slightest of advantages to the third verse because he not only admits to being stuck up, but he even admits he was set up by a woman he trusted. In more ways than one, his entire demeanor is a violation of the machismo typical of so many rappers. But ultimately that raw emotion, stripped of any gangsta pretentiousness, is exactly what we’ve come to expect and love from Drake.

Scott says: I would’ve picked the first or second verse on “The Resistance” easily over the third as the best Drake verse of 2010.
