As far as rappers being fake goes, you can't just look at their music. Music is art, like movies. You don't watch Clerks and think Jason Mewes in real life is Jay from the movie. Sometimes when rappers say tough shit on a record they do it to sell and build an artistic image. Do you really think L actually snuffed Jesus?
Hell no, it's horrorcore. It's art.
It's not like Drake is all of a sudden carrying tec-9s and and flashing red bandannas. Take his music for what it is. That said, I pick my spots when it comes to his music. Very selective.
Probably his best verse ever.
