Much like Bruce Springsteen before him, Drake‘s unique ability to understand and articulate the male voice has made one of his genre’s most valued assets.

A healthier alternative to the superficial and at times mindless offerings oft served up by Hip Hop, his arrival on the scene and subsequent dominance over it marks- as far as we’re concerned- one of the best things to happen for a culture sullied with violence, jail time and short lived successes.

Now, as further proof of the role he plays in moulding the minds of his fans for the better, he has been credited for inspiring a class of hopeless 9th graders and their struggling teacher.
