Honestly, it sounds like Drake mailed this one in. I hope other people try and follow suit, whether or not the quality is there. Needless to say, there are not very many artists who have the ability to casually release a handful of records on a late Saturday afternoon and move the needle. I mean, all of these records could have and still might be on upcoming album Views From the 6 and nobody would bat an eye, but for Drake they're throwaways. Say what you want about his rapping, but there is no question that the man can croon the undies off a nun. This is acceptable to yall? He's not really singing nor his he rapping; he's just kind of talking. You know the drill by now, whenever a big record drops, we do a Heat Check to get the pulse of the online hip-hop community and see how we everyone is feeling about said release.
It might be three songs, but the Heat Check formula still works, so let's break it down track by track shall we? Kev says: Most impressive catalogue ever? Drake is a hit maker, and it works for him to keep dropping them. Little lone-wolf tracks that just tear shit up but still belong atleast as book on the shelf of the artists library. Now, let the Drake hating commence. The sad part is this guy Drake can actually rap. Him doing this shows that he understands the importance of maintaining that drake vibe — which is what we want to hear on some scale when we play a drake track. Your menstrual cycle will start even if your a guy. Side effects and possible hormonal changes maybe.
The only thing that saves this record is its production. Bruh you sound like the same guy who claims weezy is the goat in 2007-2009. I like the change up in terms of content - normally it's Drake being all hung up about a break up but here he's rubbing his millions of dollars in her face - but the presentation is Häagen-Dazs vanilla. . You will shoot air balls.
Lecrae put out a great album, Logic dropped a genius full body of work and you guys are here arguing about three songs. Nevertheless, lyrics are pretty bad. Overall, for a three-pack of free records, this selection is pretty dope. They are a hazard to your health especially when mixed with a Canadian back ground. From Drake's engaging lyrics to the presentation, and the creamy, under-water-synth beat from 40, it's quality through and through. It's amazing to me how Drake can switch up his style so drastically and have the end result be just as powerful.
Of course those were different times…. There is plenty here to enjoy with out having to resort to over-analyzing lyrics to find digs at Tyga. Hate him or love him, you have to admire that. I had to turn that shit off midway thru. The Jodeci flip by Boi-1da and Jordan Evans is the lasting take away from the whole song. Songs that really hit the soul by an artist such as J. Lol I have no problem with Drake singing, hell Take Care had some dope ass slow songs on there, but this shit right here nigga is no where near his best work.
Lol How bout now is the only hot song! Mt Olympus, 4th quarter, those are fire. Kanye, pharaoh monche, ice cube, Eminem, ll cool j, nas, outkast, beastie boys, the roots, hell even Kendrick like I said have far better discographies than Drake. When you make a strong claim on the game like he has done, your in the zone. Also, I love the window dressing with that girl and the phone call at the end; it's a really great addition and makes the song feel less recorded and more performed. I missed my Saturday workout to recap this new Drake, but this record is all the cardio I need today. J Boogie says: Funniest shit is watching Kendrick stans rationalize his lack of musical output when new Drake songs drop.
I'd rather do my turn-up dance instead. Drake is hot right now. I'd rather just have that instrumental. Kev says: You know Hip hop is dead when the people running it are rappers with average flows and bars like Aubrey, wale, jcole, big Sean. Just a bad song imo i give this a 2. Wtf was he talking bout? He isn't Usher, but you forgot how good he really is on that side of the ledger; this cut is exceptional. Of course Drake being Drake, we've been gifted the , a three track platter, on this casual Saturday evening.
