Listen up, everyone - we have TERRIFIC NEWS! Drake is now entering into Social Media for the first time - WAY TO GO, HOGEY! He's still not thrilled about BEING there, because as many of you already know, our down-to-earth guy is old-school, but we're just glad he'll be posting now and then so we can keep up with his activities. His new Official Facebook Page is HERE and you can Follow and Tweet him HERE on his Official Twitter Account. Welcome to the Twenty-First Century and the wacky world of Social Media, Drake! We love you!

What's In A Name?

How to pronounce Drake's name: Okay, here is a quick lesson on how to say Drake's last name correctly, since our boisterous Drake really appreciates it when his fans nail the pronunciation of his last name. Most reporters are always mispronouncing it and Drake has to correct them. Drake isn't a pig; he isn't a hog either. So it isn't HOGestyn. The "O" is pronounced as it sounds, like "oh" and the "tyn" is pronounced like "tin," so say it with us exactly as it sounds...Drake Hoh-ges-tin. Hogestyn.
