Drake is riding high after placing all three tracks off of his Scary Hours 2 EP in the top three spots on the Hot 100. A feat which has never been done before.
Charlamagne has been a Drake skeptic in the past. However, he had to admit Drake just did something very impressive. But then he added a big caveat: Drake cheated the charts.

"I have three thoughts. First off, congrats to Drake. That is an incredible feat," said the radio host. "I asked a question a few months ago and the question was simply, 'are we still in a Drake era?' When you're #1, #2, and #3 on the charts, I think that answers your question. When it comes to streaming and radio, he's still the guy. That top three might not reflect what's happening in the clubs or with a slightly younger demo but he's still the guy with regards to radio and streaming."
"Streaming and radio manipulate the game in ways we've never seen but we'll forget all that," he said. "The pressure is really on for Drake right now. Because the three-pack is dope and I like the energy of the three-pack. He'swas killing that," CTG said, and quoted some of the bars. "But the pressure is on because with Certified Lover Boy, I'm expecting an undeniable body of work. When I think of the greats like the Hov's and the Nas' and the Lil Wayne's, these guys were giving us classics much later in their career. Whether it's The Blueprint, Illmatic, or Tha Carter III, I'm expecting that level of project from Drake at this point in his career ... It's a new decade. He had a decade of dominance in the 2010s now it's time to plant a new flag for a new decade make a statement."
Then CTG got to his third thought, and it was simple.
"He cheated. Don't let the heart cut in his head fool you."
