In the wake of R.Kelly’s scandalous Lifetime docu-series ‘Surviving R. Kelly,’ do not be surprised if a lot of musicians start to come under question (perhaps, that is why a lot of artists declined to be interviewed). The latest on the chopping block is 32-year-old Canadian rapper and hip-hop fan favorite, Drake.
In the video below, Drake is apparently kissing on an admitted 17-year-old girl? The video is a bit dated, and no one seemed to think it was a big deal at the time of its release.
The video shows Drake not asking the young lady about her age until after the initial touching, he even goes on to say the following according to People:
“I get in trouble for s— like this,” he remarked in the video, walking away from the fan before asking her, “How old are you?”
“17,” she answered as the crowd erupted in surprise.
Addressing the revelation in the video, Drake replied, “I can’t go to jail yet,” before commenting on how mature the fan looked for her age.
“I had fun, I don’t know if I should feel guilty or not, but I had fun. I like the way your breasts feel against my chest,” he continued, adding, “I just want to thank you.”
Drake proceeded to kiss the underage fan’s hand before kissing each of her cheeks, her forehead and her lips. [Via People]
We like Drake a lot around here, but this video does appear a bit sketchy. However, it appear that in Colorado (which is where this video happened)17-years-old is the legal age of consent.
Our advice to Drake and other musicians would be to BE CAREFUL. Drake is NOT built for jail, and we all know that. Just because he is a ‘J. Prince investment,’ he is NOT J. Prince.
What do you guys think? Is it a big deal?
