The notion that all black people come from the hood is obviously perpetuated by rap. If you ask Drake, he started from the bottom but now heâ€™s here, and he brought his whole team with himâ€”lyrics referenced from his most recent single, â€œStarted From the Bottom.â€ In reality, Aubrey Drake Graham spent the majority of his childhood on television sets filming the Canadian TV series, Degrassi. Thereâ€™s nothing â€œbottomâ€ about that.
People may not like to admit it, but rappers lie. All of them are not from the hood, and neither is all of the black population.
