Sorry, I had to post that again. Lucky bastard.

Truthfully, I’ve been waiting for this record since Conan. With each new Drake verse, his current place in hip-hop becomes more and more staggering. Normally, I’d say that the pressure would outweigh the quality, but in this guy’s case it may very well prove to be the opposite. Love or hate the guy, the buzz he’s created around his name is nothing short of respectable. The funny part is, he’s been rapping like this since ’06. A Lil’ Wayne co-sign (at the perfect time) is all he needed.

“Drake is the new movement, man. You gotta think about what this kid has done, man. To have records on a mixtape, and then the next thing you know he’s on top of the charts. And every time you mention him, people go crazy.”–Jamie Foxx

And once again, Drake > everyone else on this record. No bandwagon either. Well, after listening to Kanye’s verse again, I’m not so sure. Regardless, it was a hot verse.

Props to…hell if I know who actually was the first to leak it.
