Drake.

Drake "The Best of Drizzy"

I’ve been hearing about him for quite some time now.  Drake is an MC that is from Toronto, Canada and has the  backing of Lil’ Wayne (who is on a couple tracks with him as well and also has Drake performing with him).  NT loves him and so does hiphopupdate.  The first couple tracks I heard from him impressed me (Ransom ft. Lil Wayne), but I never took the time to follow up on him.

So a couple days ago I wanted some new music to listen to so I downloaded a mixtape that NT recommended, The Best of Drizzy.  I must say that I’m very impressed.  I would say that he is somewhere between Wale and Kid Cudi as far as style goes.  He’s probably better than Wale lyrics wise, but Wale has alot more songs that are meaningful.  Drake also sings in a some of his songs and is Kid Cudi like, although not quite as good as it.  This mixtape is a quality download, especially since its free.  Although for some of the songs he’s just rapping over other beats (i.e Swagger Like Us, Barry Bonds), he stil brings the lyrics to the table.  Some of his best songs are his slower ones.

Here is a dose of one of his lyrics:

“I’m perfectin’ my craft, usin’ mo’ sess. Tryin’ to make some cheese off a single is a pro’cess.  Get it? Kraft. Single. Cheese. Process. Sit back and admire the talent that i po’ssess.”

“You can’t miss the boy, me and rich United like Van Nistelrooy”

***

At the end of the day, Drake falls in between these two artists and is refreshing.

I forget where I downloaded it but here’s the same or a different link I found to download the mixtape (DL with caution).

DKA out.

Lil wayne must have been thinkin "no homo"

"No homo"

Oh where to start.  He’s got hot tracks.  He’s got shitty tracks.  Whatever the case may be, whenever the dude drops song, people listen, including myself.  I will say he worked hard to get where he is and he has definitely put in the time and effort and has talent.

…with that said, I believe he has fallin’ off.  Tha Carter III was good, not a classic, but I think his best material was between Carter II and III.  I still love playin’ everything from the Carter III Mixtape I got.

Anyway, Wayne is currently taking a different path and is going to make a rock album.  According to hiphopupdate.blogspot.com , his album REBIRTH is going to drop April 7th.  Here is his first track off the album.

He also did a collaboration with Kid Rock and my sources tell me that, Bendey and Ty are also going to be collaborating with the Bullgod as well.

This already has a perfect caption.

Here is that track:

Even though I’m not a fan of it, I do give him respect for doing what he wants and for going outside the box.  I’m sure I’ll post more on Wayne later.

DKA out.
