surprised there's not many comments on Drake. Might as well spill my opinion.

So Drake, I laid him off for years and years, thought he was a complete joke. I listened to some of his hits, actually thought Hotline Bling was awesome but it was way too overplayed to enjoy it. I heard Take Care and only liked The Weeknd songs on it. that might be slightly biased since I am a huge weeknd fan but I really could bump those four songs only.

flash forward to now, I might even be considered a fan. his albums are excellent and it's really cool to hear his journey throughout them all. I still can't get into Take Care though. can still only bump Abel's tracks. Views as well is a flawed album imo. but NWTS and IYRTITL has some of the smoothest production and mixing work I have ever heard. I really enjoy that Drake works with everyone directly for his music too. he has a team of very talented artists.

so yeah I peaked his albums and features and really gave him a chance and really really liked what I heard. More Life was very typical Drake lyrically and the production, though good, wasn't at all innovative. was nice to hear Ye on Glow though. Drake is a good ass artist and is overrated at times but honestly deserves his big fan base and his frequent chart dominance

Drake has taken the rap world by storm, and this storm doesn't seem like it's ending soon which is a great thing. W needed change we needed more diversity. Yes he looks educated yes he looks pretty yes he sings for the ladies and yes it's all true. Their is room for rappers like him in hip hop. Isn't hi hop's goal to evolve because it is the peoples music and people should evolve. Drake is Drake and he is one of the realest out there, he's got heart and guts be him and not someone else. Lets see what he does for 2014 !
