Between 2002 and 2005, a book of Drake’s rhymes is on sale for $32,500 per TMZ. The notebook is reported to contain more than 20 pages of lyrics, including some full songs, and is on sale through Moments in Time memorabilia company.
The TMZ story includes a handful of lines that seem to be in the notebook, in which Drake rapes about distrusting the women around him:
Another notebook belonging to the Canadian rapper was on sale for a stunning $54,000 in February 2018. A take on The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Ten Crack Commandments” and lyrics from his 2006 mixtape Room for Improvement were reportedly included.
The first notebook was a major source of controversy, as the former collaborator of Drake, Nickelus F, said it included the lyrics to the songs he had written.
Trey Songz, Voyce, and Slakah the Beatchild featured appearances in addition to Nickelus F, Room for Improvement.
As artists like Pusha-Thave accused him of using ghostwriters, Drake’s writing was the subject of much speculation. His collaborator Preme once said Drake would rewrite his verses as many as twenty times and spend two weeks on a single verse at times.
