Drake's lyrics are so poetic that they sound good in both modern English and Shakespearean Engish.
I took some of Drake's most popular lyrics and ran them through a Shakespearean translator, and the results are pretty hilarious. Mind you, the translator itself isn't perfect, but it does the job for the most part. Here are 21 Drake lyrics if they were spoken by Shakespeare; you know, in case you need to spice up your Instagram captions:
