That's what Im talking about.Oliver doin his homework on this blog.Oliver you get alot of credit for that

COOP of Baron Boys said...

Oliver is on point with this. But to what No I.D. said, I think he's just talkin about So Far Gone, cuz CBS was def more of a doorknocker hiphop gem opposed to the r&b/crossover foundation that SFG had. Regardless, Thank Me Later will be a perfect (&and perfectly balanced) debut album and I believe that to the fullest. he's got a lot of good folks behind him, it's more of a group project to say the least.

Great post!

Richard Basford said...

I agree with with No I.D here.. I would love to the calm made as the 2nd single. That in my opinion, is the best song on the album.

Nahh,Drake is good where he is.People are making judgement just off "U the best"cuz it blew but, over all Drakes music including So far Gone was HARD.If i may say. It was a niggas album , that a chick could appreciate,and its more dangerous not to have a female fan base

The Avenues Man said...

Aubrey is a talented artist no doubt but as much as tracks such as Best I ever had, Night off are great musical pieces I feel that songs like The Calm, Closer and that type of that literal nature colligates a number of individuals myself included, and I would love to see him put more attention in such. Successful is also amazing and the lyrical composition, as well as the content he talks about is so germane and this is why he has such a huge following.

Oliver, Drake I wish you guys good fortune!

it sucks that people judge someone off of one single. when i talk to ppl about drake now all they see is "best i ever had" and judge him strictly off that. Even though songs like ransom, i'm goin in, and uptown were some of the hardest songs this year.

I agree with No I.D. But I was wondering whats the song playing in the background of the interview?

Jason Battersby said...

No I.D. has a strong point, but I feel pretty comfortable knowing Drake can go hard when needed, and has kept a good balance on all of his mixtapes so far. People mainly concentrate on so far gone beause it has now become his calling card, but for us knowing Drake pre so far gone we're a bit more in tune with his balancing act. I'm not worried one bit for the future, I'm as excited as i've ever been about an artist, always anticipating what he has to say on his tracks because I know its the truth. With that said, i'm also hoping for some hard tracks a-la Underdog or Barry Bonds Freestyle. Keep it up Drake see you at the Molson Aphitheater!

Desmond said...

No I.D. was just giving his opinion..the points he made about watching others (good and the bad)
will help to give drake that long lasting spot in hip hop...but right now he cant go wrong it's like he's playing for the bulls in 93 (great team behind him)

Tronic said...

I see what I.D is saying, but Drake has proven on numerous occasions that he is versatile and i know he knows what needs to be put on that album to be on the road to longevity.

nice!...plus i loved his tree and root analogy..

"eager beaver could be the collapse of a dam" forreal... but u know this already Drizzy..u speak about it in ALL your songs..women sense an opportunity to manipulate prey especially when they once got away..just like men..u got a LOT to lose..dammit Drizzy ur a catch..I can look up basic knowledge about you, but it's through your music I can hear your mistakes, lessons learned, fears, successes and passion, and I dont have to know much about you to sense that you're motivated, strong-willed, dedicated, plus handsome, no kids..i mean shoot you got half the world already beat LOL! whatever woman gets to know you deeper as Aubrey and not just Drake, well...lucky her..i think hearing "Drake" is like finding something at the crime scene originally from your house with your finger prints on it and a big polaroid next to it with u cheesin holdin up a sign sayin "I did it", lol you can deny it after all that but the proof is there so whats the point? a black man success story, congratulations! what matters from here, only matters in a cruel world of ridicule and hip hop fans waiting to bash anyone who cant sell 5 million their first day, and ready to bash even if u can..but to your TRUE fans, you've already won..u risked your hurt leg just to please fans at a show, and refused to tone your show down so your fans could get all of you...man Drake don't get me started on how dope ur actions are as a good artist.. we're fans, we follow along, cause when we can't actualize our own dreams, you become the sh*t in our eyes, and when you're good at what you do, we become deeper fans..not all of us fans are bad..some of us really appreciate you deeper than sex, money and status..some of us see u as a regular "joe" who just happens to be more and make more than the average lol. Keep focused..you're already smashin several cats wit your mixtape and they been tryna get noticed in the same caliber with multiple ALBUMS..make it do what it do Drizzy...Ima straight up be listenin, buyin and supportin.

Truthfully, peeps have to stop judging Drake off of So Far Gone alone. Where are the headz who have heavily rotated Room for Improvement and Comeback Season and everything in between? There is no way you can collectively listen to Drake's entire catalogue and label him a ladies man! He's an MC that a lot of rappers can't touch right now - period! No disrespect to No I.D., he's a hip hop legend, but hear the whole catalogue first.
