Drake Talks About His Songwriting Process

Posted By on June 22, 2010

     Everyone writes songs in their own unique ways, including new rapper Drake. The Young Money star recently talked about how he uses his Blackberry smart phone when he writes. During the "Drake: Better Than Good Enough" documentary, which airs June 23 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV, producer and engineer Noah "40" Shebib says "All Drake's raps for eternity have been written inside of a Blackberry…I mean, to the point where if he doesn't have a Blackberry, we gotta go get somebody who's got one. I've had dummy Blackberrys around that I just pull out for him to write on, like if he needs one … that don't actually even work!"

     Drake adds "I can't write my raps on paper… The Blackberry keys — my thumbs were made for touching them."
