RR Guest Blog: Drake’s Letter To Aaliyah

As many of you know, Drake is a huge fan of Aaliyah as evidenced by TML‘s “Unforgettable” which samples her song “At Your Best”. On the ninth anniversary of Ms. Haughton’s passing, Rap Radar reached out to Drizzy to get his thoughts on a day that will forever be remembered. He quickly penned the following letter below. RIP Baby Girl.

Dear Dana,

I’ve never lost a parent, a friend, or a lover but I will never forget this day for the rest of my life. I remember getting the news that you had passed and it connected with my heart like a clean shot from Muhammad Ali. I was crushed. Not only was I one of your biggest fans but I was truly in love with you. I loved the way you carried yourself, the way you dressed, the confidence with which you addressed passion and relationships in your music. I said to myself that even if we never met, I wanted a woman in my life just like you. I am pained that we will never get to connect now that music ended up being my career path. But you should know, we all listen to you everyday and we remain inspired and moved by all that you’ve given the world. I hope I make the right life choices so I can end up in heaven where I know you rest your head. I’ll continue to make music in your honor until the day we finally meet. Dinner’s on me!

Love you always and forever,

Drake

    please tell me how this lame aka male duck has such a connection with Aaliyah and he is only “23 years old” You was too young to realize the impact this woman made and he always gotta take this fake ass sympathetic emoti0nal bullshit route for everything..

    i dont know why u ppl are hating on Drake for saying something heartfelt about Aaliyah. She obviously had an impact on his life or else he wouldnt sample a song of hers or write this letter. Calling him soft and feminine doesnt make sense considering other ppl are doing the same and actually valued her life. yall looking for reasons to hate. SMH

  • http://rapradar deon

    His letter was truly from the heart.. I respected the way she carried herself and said the same i want a woman who respects herself first before anyone can….. If she was around these young girls would not be so lost our here being loose.. Are there any real women like aaliyah still around…

    Im Drake’s age and when I was 14 i was bumpin the first blueprint, stillmatic, stankonia, no disrespect to aaliyah, but no other 13 14 year old boys were listening to that shit. Watchin her videos, ya for sure, but shit wasnt on my sony mini disc lol

    Tomorrow I will go off on how much of a girl this Drake character is, and why RR didn’t ask Jay or Dame or other folks who knew her. Ask the Dog, he’s fresh out and needs the publicity. Ask Timbo. Ask Nicole Wray. Ask whoever…but like I said I will say all that shit tomorrow.

    RIP Aaliyah.

    This was a dope way of showing fan appreciation. I’m a huge fan of Aaliyah as well so I know how Drake feels about her passing. Shit crushed me eventho I didn’t know her. What’s fucked is, ppl r gonna hate on this saying he didn’t know her, but none of us knew Pac & Big, but that doesn’t mean their music didn’t touch our souls. Same with her. We’re humans with emotions. We feel shit. All in all, I miss Aaliyah. She was one if Detroit’s finest & woulda been on top had she been alive today & kept working hard. R.I.P Aaliyah

    COSIGN @MoneyMitch No 13 to14 year old boys knew that much about Aaliyah when we were

    little I think Drake is just working the fans, like all these other rappers that come out of the blue

    and start saying R.I.P. to someone they probably didn’t know or listen to. I heard her songs but I

    didn’t know too much about her when I was little, hes acting like she was Michael Jackson, hes a

    bandwagon jumper. Anyways R.I.P. to Aaliyah

    Its 6,000 away from platinum meaning if it hasnt already, this week it will sell 1,000,000 copies. What other rappers are doing? Other than Wayne and Em? NONE. Instead of tearing Drake apart you should be praising him for how he is contributing to the sales of hip hop. Hes getting his money, how are you getting yours?

  • lili

    Why do people have to call him gay?? It’s comments like that which makes it hard for actual gays to come out instead of living a double life because there are such homophobes in this fuckin country.
    And why does hip hop have to be so one dimensional that it’s so wrong for him making it “feminine” or whatever someone said?

    I know im late, but EVERYBODY PLEASE stop feeding into this dude Horus….atleast on this post. It’s disrespectful to Miss Aaliyah to entertain this clowns idiocy on here. That being said….

    I Had an incredible moment today. I was in the car with wifey and my two 9 year old cousins (u might be able to see where this is going now) and I was playing my Aaliyah cd like i do ALL THE TIME but ALWAYS on this particular day every year. It clicked to me that it’s been 9 years AND my cousins are 9, so they pretty much have NO CLUE who Aaliyah is. I described who she was and the impact she left the best way that i could to a couple of 9 yr olds (lol) and the little girl simply said “I could tell after you I heard that first song (which was “Missin You”) that she must be somebody reeeeeeeeeally special. She sounds like an angel. Will you make me a cd?”

    Perfect.

  • Embarrassed by stupidity

    I am amazed at the terrible things people are writing. Not because they don’t like the letter or think it’s not genuine, but to have the audacity to criticize someone and not even have the mental capacity to write or spell correctly when doing so. I mean SERIOUSLY. When was the last time you READ A BOOK? Get ya head out the blog and READ a BOOK. Preferably one without pictures and CHAPTERS. LOL! Do some math. Something. SMH…

    Anyone with common sense or SOME sense looks at your posts and laughs or even worse, SHUDDERS. I just decided to take a moment to let you know, Not defending Drake, but you make Drake sound like a scholar. It’s embarrassing so save yourself from people like me, who RARELY write what we think about people like YOU.

    You’re an idiot. You embarrass the hip hop industry and perpetuate the stereotype that won’t go away until YOU do. Lol!

    If you’re reading this blog and not posting, but continue to assume people who love hip hop are stupid because of what is represented on this blog; I can assure you WE AREN’T. There’s stupidity in every genre of music. Unfortunately this fool has “too much time on their hands.”

    Aaaahhhhh…. I feel SO much better. : )

    RIP AALIYAH WE LOVE AND WE MISS YOU SO MANY TRY TO EMULATE YOUR STYLE BUT CANT DO IT

  • Chris

    I’ve been posting nice things about Aaliyah today, but when I heard that Drake wrote a letter to her, I had to make a NOT so nice one. First of all, Drake is lame. Sampling her voice in one of his wack-ass songs is disrespectful to Liyah’s legacy. His ex-girl is an Aaliyah-wannabe, trying to star in a movie about her, too. Plus I got Babgirl’s name tatted on my arm, so fuck that nigga. Real fans recognize not so real ones. RIP Aaliyah.

  • moN

    All you people who are hating on Drake check youself. He may not be all that good but thats not the subject here. And you Dumb asses that bash on him with such emotion get a life are you 12? Dont hate cuz your parents were probably nothing. Because you were’nt taken care of like Drakes parents looked out for him. You probably still logging into this using ur moms computer in ur MOMS house. Money is money and he works hard, even f he is a flopper. He has more than you can say. So get off this thing and have your mom tuck you in!

  • Wow

    so…….Drake is a cornball for paying his respect to Aaliyah? Are you people realy that fucking stupid? Its not about Drake right now its about Aaliyah and all ya’ll could do is say how Drake is a flop?……The human mentality is so eager to hate something. Try not hating it feels better

  • jmarcroyal

    If that plane didnt crash Aaliyah would be the top female, not Beyonce!

    And back in the day, Aaliyah was cool to listen too, Im 26 now and I used to love her music with Timbaland, and she was good in the movies too with Romeo Must Die, she was on pace to be crazy huge before her untimely death.

    RIP Aaliyah!!!

    wow, this was actually supposed to be something solemn, yet all the drake hate comments are still here. you all seriously need to shut the fuck up. respect to drake for taking the time to write a thoughtful letter the late great aaliyah. RIP, you will always be loved.

  • yerrr

    co sign @money mitch … but i aint hating on drake. i think hes a real talented but this post is for aaliyah RIP

  • I RUN THIS..

    Come on RR, Drake, letter to Aaliyah…you guys are probably sitting there thinking that the post was a success cuz of all the comments and extra hits from the pr spinoffs, which is good for your site. But all in all, there is no substance in this article.Timbo, Missy, R-Kelly or Dame Dash’s letter would have had a much bigger impact and you would have achieved all your objectives. I mean how old is Drake? Come on Son!

    @pressed are you stupid bro? If you’re gonna hate, make sure that you have your facts printed out and not wikipedia’d. Thank Me Later went platinum… dumb fuck

  • Fuk Em

    Ya well if you were not bumping it at 13 or 14 then I guess you were not getting laid …. Nuff said!

    A very Lovely and Kind letter. Simple and Sweet.

    @ so icy boi: shut the eff up! peeps use corny all the time especially when referring corny ass homos that give themselves nicknames like “so icy boi.” ha!

  • mmkayy

    nice i guess but this dude is obsessed with Aaliyah….he even dated a look-a-like….that same girl is set to play Aaliyah in a movie

  • KV

    HORUS are you serious? I think you just jealous. Don’t you be a bitch about it.

    And for Drake, I think its nice of him to pay respect to Aaliyah (RIP babygirl). And it is obvious that Drake has talent.
    You can’t compare Drake to Eminem, Drake is still an upcoming artist and he’s GREAT!

    Horus is a whining bitch ✔

    Horus- I’m actually offended that you would get on here and use such foul language when this letter was supposed to be about a classy act. If you hate Drake so much why don’t you go make a i hate drake fanclub and leave that nonsense there.

    makemovies- I guess because I’m only 22 I couldn’t possibly have understood her impact at all. I’m sorry but age doesn’t mean you can’t tell what real music was. I’d pick the Temptations over Soulja Boy anyday.

  • Shugo

    Man i hate these people on here who have to comment in all caps, some shit about someone, just hatin’ for the fun of it.

    RIP Aaliyah

  • KAY.

    Fuck all you haters above. This man reached out and honored a lost one, and you still be acting like idiots trying to ruin his name. FUCK YOU. i don’t see you doing better, i don’t see you do anything to honor this wonderful woman. it’s not corny to write something about someone like this. it’s respectable, and i respect him for this. i love him for this. this was truly incredible for him to do this. drake if you see this… keep doing you. because those who are meant to have their lives touched by you; will. just like aaliyah did for thousands of people, you do just as well. RIP aaliyah, your tragic loss broke our hearts, but we still love you.

    Great letter, but isnt TML dedicated to Cory Mintz, his good friend who passed away?

    “I’ve never lost a parent, a friend, or a lover…”

    Hey Drake,
    Half these idiots yapping on this blog dont know anything about music. Big up to Drake and his down to earth personality. I am from Toronto and I know the struggles you came about to get where you are. Aaliyah was one of the best female singers we have known until this day, may god RIP.

    Drake my dogg, keep doing what your doing- mad props from T.O.

    Horus is a m-f—ing hater, Drake nd YM is tha m-f—ing best… Free Weezy.

    are no is, sorry

  • Kris

    Horus, everything about you is basic. I can understand if you’re saying drake isnt your favorite artists and still need to earn his stripes and shit like that. But that dude is a lyrical genius.. You can say whatever the fuck you want but theres no other cat in the game that touches ppl with his music. Male & Female. He sold more than any other hip hop artist does on a avarage base. If you’re tryin to compare him with weezy or kanye.. okay he didnt sell shit. But look at all the other artists that did even worse. The new WU album flopped big time… now, are you goin to tell me wu tang is wack because they didnt sell shit? Nah son. You got shit twisted & it looks like hatin on drake is a important part of your life. So go ahead & hate.. He’ll just keep killin the mixtape game and floatin way above haters like you. Fall Back
