[haven’t been able to post about Drake’s surprise mixtape drop on Friday, February 13th, 2015, until now. It was a lovely surprise I received upon landing in freezing NYC.]
Needless to say, I dig this new album because I rarely dislike anything from the man….and I am still listening to it; digesting all of it before I can say my full opinion. There is a lot of speculation as to why he released it so abruptly like this, especially with all the rumors around the beef between some heavy rappers with Cash Money Records. Pitchfork lays it all out here, along with some great lines alluding to this rumor from the album. Looking forward to seeing the story further unfold….in the meantime, I will continue to have this mixtape on repeat.

Shout out to Henry Krinkle’s “Stay”, which is used in to-be-hit-single “Preach”, after also being used in Nicki Minaj’s “Buy a Heart” in her latest The Pink Print. Hopefully Cash Money paid Henry properly at least…..
