Somebody has pissed Drake off. All of the criticism the superstar received for the lack of bars on For All The Dogs has resulted in the Canadian rapper releasing the “Scary Hours” edition of the album with six new songs that are all rhymes. One of the standouts is his pairing with The Alchemist on “Wick Man” that finds Drake taking a shot at Pusha T for his jab at Noah “40” Shebib back on the 2018 diss song “Story of Addison.”
There’s something about [timestamp] + [location] Drake that gets the Toronto emcee’s lyricism going. Although his latest album For All My Dogs isn’t a full on rap album, this joint demonstrates that Drake can rhyme alongside the best of them when he feels it’s necessary.
What may have come to a surprise to most was Drake’s collaboration with DJ Premier on his Scorpion album. Listen to the Toronto artist rock over some soulful Preemo production with “Sandra’s Rose.”
DJ Critical Hype doesn’t f*ck around, does he? After dropping the Kendrick Lamar and Dr. Dre blend tape “The DAMN Chronic,” he’s back at it again putting Drake vocals over 9th Wonder production on “More 9th.” It’s important to note that Drake and 9th Wonder have worked together a few times in the past and the Canadian recognized Little Brother’s Phonte as his favorite rapper once upon a time. So now we get a bunch of Drake songs over 9th Wonder instrumentals and the result is pure dope.
Well, that didn’t take long. Less than 24 hours after Pusha T came for the Toronto rapper’s neck comes a lethal response from Drake that takes aim at not only Pusha T, but Kanye West as well. “Duppy Freestyle” has shaken down the internet and if you haven’t had a chance to listen to it, please do so now.
Somebody must be cutting onions in here. Drake releases the video for “God’s Plan” and it’s definitely going to move you. With a near million dollar budget for the video, Drake instead decided to give all the money away and it’s all captured in this video. No matter how you feel about Drake, you simply cannot deny the emotions captured in this video from the lives that he touched.
Since Drake hasn’t really responded with anything worth talking about, Joe Budden gives him another jab just to see if he’s paying attention with “Just Because.”
Joe Budden appeared on The Brilliant Idiots podcast with Andrew Schultz and Charlamagne Tha God to discuss his rationale for going at Drake, not once, not twice, but thrice. Listen to Joey give his side of the story.
Maybe it wasn’t such a great idea for Drake to open his mouth on “No Shopping” because all it did was cause Joe Budden to go all in with yet another diss track on “Afraid.”
If Joe Budden didn’t get Drake’s attention with “Making A Murderer Pt 1,” he wants to make certain that the Toronto rapper hears him loud and clear with his second salvo “Wake.” Produced by araabMUZIK, Budden picks up where he left off and tackles everything about Drake that he didn’t get to the first time around.
