Drake - just Drake - perhaps hoping to join the well known believers in brevity such as Godzilla and Madonna - has a new one - that would be "Take Care" and it's on Universal Republic. The same machines seem to be playing the same old song as Drake does his rap lite thing - as he lets his vulnerable little boy side shine through as he says and does the right thing as his audience - women. To Drake, the fair sex and the b-word remain complete strangers, as it should be. The rhymes are a step above the usual, which admittedly is a low bar, but Drake seems to have the sweet soul man thing figured out even as he remains fully as dangerous as whistling in the backyard, but he would appear to have a future at that 3 a.m. hopefully getting lucky moment, if and when you've made it home drunk. And in a totally unrelated subject, that rapper with a hat - Kid Rock - dissed every Capricorn (who generally never lie and are always right) by coming out for Mitt Romney who is a mean rich guy that makes plastic seem authentic. Do you want a boss or a president?
