Review: Drake – If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late

Review: Drake – If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late

Out of nowhere on Thursday night, Drake released his mixtape, If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. Sold exclusively on iTunes, Too Late is a 17-track project serving as an appetizer for Views from the 6, Drake’s upcoming fourth studio album. It includes production from frequent collaborators Boi-1da and Noah “40” Shebib, and features guest verses from Lil Wayne, Travi$ Scott, and PARTYNEXTDOOR. The project is already being projected to go gold by its first week out, and was met with much excitement and hype on Twitter and Instagram (including yours truly). Lyrically, Drake is as sharp as ever, and… continue reading

Big Sean Ft. Drake – Blessings

Big Sean Ft. Drake – Blessings

Big Sean is one hungry individual. “At the top of the rap game and still progressing.” Despite being on his third album, Dark Sky Paradise, Big Sean rejuvenates himself with a serious run almost each time before an album. It doesn’t always translate into a strong album, though, as we’ve seen with Hall Of Fame. This new one is backed by the infectious, Platinum-selling “IDFWU,” and now this Drake-assisted “Blessings.” Is there a bad Big Sean and Drake collaboration? I don’t think so. “Blessings” doesn’t break the trend either. You have Drizzy kicking bars that you’d expect out of him… continue reading

Preach On, Sermon: Leadership Of Drake, Weezy & Paul Heyman

Preach On, Sermon: Leadership Of Drake, Weezy & Paul Heyman

Drake is somebody who has a powerful co-sign. The minute he hops on a record, it has the potential to be a hit. Look at the assist he gave Migos’ “Versace” or Tinashe’s “2 On.” Regardless if they were destined for the same fate, Drake got them there faster. He’s put on The Weeknd, PARTYNEXTDOOR, and ILOVEMAKKONEN in the last two years. All three are widely successful by releasing albums, going on sold out tours and climbing up the charts. Drake is undeniable, and that’s why OVO Sound has the ability to flourish majorly in 2015. On the flip side,… continue reading

Juvenile Ft. Drake – Sho Me Love (Prod. By London On Da Trak)

Juvenile Ft. Drake – Sho Me Love (Prod. By London On Da Trak)

Around the time that Drake sampled Juvenile for “Practice” on Take Care, Juve claimed that the two would end up doing a record soon. Two years later, and re-signing with Cash Money, his wish has been granted. However, the final product is a little underwhelming. With London On Da Trak being a monster all over the first Rich Gang project, his production doesn’t fit that well with Juvenile. The worst part? Drake’s chorus is only a few lines that’s repeated throughout the song. It comes off as lazy and disappointing, but not surprising. Whenever it comes to these kind of… continue reading

QuESt Editorial: So Far Gone: The Mixtape The Changed Everything

QuESt Editorial: So Far Gone: The Mixtape The Changed Everything

Five years ago today, Drake’s So Far Gone made its way onto the internet after numerous leaks and promises from 40 that it’s coming. Anticipation was at an all-time high for a mixtape that would change the future Young Money star’s life in so many ways. It’s easy to deem it a classic. Drake has surely improved over time but what he did on this project is hard to top. This is a man who understood his potential, cornered his lane and has mastered it since. Being an up and coming rapper, Miami native and Visionary Music Group’s third signee… continue reading

The Game – Who Do You Love (Remix)

The Game – Who Do You Love (Remix)

YG’s future hit single featuring Drake leaked yesterday in an unfinished state. Tonight, The Game decides to make use of the space that was left open on the leak with a remix verse (and makes sense since Drizzy shouted him out). His verse is fits very well. Despite confirming he hasn’t signed, he starts out with “Young Money, Cash Money.” Sounds like he already made up his mind on where he’s headed. My Krazy Life coming March 25.
