It’s hard to tell if these kind of stories are planted by RIM marketing or if they’re legitimate but apparently Drake writes his lyrics on a BlackBerry and reads them off the device in the studio. “I can’t write my raps on paper,” says Drake. “The BlackBerry keys, my thumbs were made for touching them, ya know?”
Noah Shebib, a Canadian producer and engineer says, “All of Drake’s raps, for eternity, have all been written inside of a BlackBerry. I mean [it’s] to the point where if he doesn’t have a BlackBerry, we gotta go get somebody who’s got one.” He adds “I’ve even had dummy BlackBerrys around to pull out for him to write on if he needs one.”
Considering Drake has been around marketing BlackBerrys for some time, we don’t know if he was a fan before or after the money came in. Either way, it’s still funny to hear about someone writing so much on those little keys. Here at BlackBerryCool, we had someone submit a pretty lengthy article from their BlackBerry.
