Yeah, the kid Drake has been doing his thing lately. Popping up on more remixes than Weezy and making cameos in all sorts of music videos. Not to mention his Grammy nods. But here’s the thing: not to join the masses of cliche independent hip-hop fans, but ever since Drake went mainstream I haven’t been feeling him! So Far Gone was the perfect blend of R&B and hip-hop, soft enough to swoon ladies and just hard enough to keep thugs from snickering. But ever since YMCMB officially put their paws on him, dude has been getting turned out harder than a hood rat. His verses and lines are becoming tired and generic. All of his songs are starting to sound the same. I’m hoping his first studio album will be a return to the smooth, suave style that got us on the Drake bandwagon to start. After all, it’s not very often an unsigned rapper has a buzz so big he could sell a blank disc.
