Drake – If You’re Reading This It’s Too LateSix years ago, Toronto rapper Drake released his critically acclaimed mixtape ‘So Far Gone’, which helped launch his career and made him into a superstar. Now, he has decided to celebrate the anniversary by giving us a project called ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’. It comes with 17 records and features from PARTYNEXTDOOR, Lil Wayne and Travi$ Scott. Production is handled by Boi-1da, Noah “40″ Shebib, Vinylz, WondaGurl, Frank Dukes, Eric Dingus and more.
This should hold fans over until the release of his next studio album ‘Views From The 6′, which is expected to drop later this year. Be sure to check out ‘Jungle’, the short film he released earlier today.
If you’re a fan of Drake’s harder-hitting, rap-oriented work, then you’ll definitely take to the majority of his new project, as it’s filled with bass-heavy beats and Drake’s raw style we all know and love. In one of our favorite pieces from the new project, “Star67”, Drake spits over a morphing, shadowy soundscape, but he also raps atop icy chimes and trap percussion in “10 Bands”, too, which we also love.
On “Energy”, meanwhile, we hear Drake place huge emphasis on his rapping, and over an instrumental harboring dark piano keys and more heavy percussion, we’re effectively tantalized. With each new release of his, Drake reminds us why he’s currently regarded as one of the very best names in hip-hop and music in general, and this surprise 17-track work of his only reestablishes the fact that he’s not going to budge from his superior positioning.
