  • Oz

    This shot is so hard, you see I got this theory when someone is talented and the masses want to push them to do the best work they hate on them which adds fuel to the fire then the artist responds with the desired product and this is that

  • King

  • TROLLING

    LMAO DRAKE STILL TALKING LIKE HES A THUG.. FUCK OUT OF HERE YOU AINT SHOOTING NOBODY

  • lolQ

    the song is pretty good but he can’t do what Nas, Kendrick or other rappers do.
    He should include chorus in his songs because as a rapper, Drake is not that huge !
    good song nonetheless

  • Zeerax

    @lolQ

    Yeah I agree.
    Drake isn’t a very good rapper, he really needs hooks on his song because his hook game = his signature

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/afcjonefour watdeywant

  • MadMike0082

    How THE FUCK can you front and say Drizzy isnt the hottest that ever lived?!?!?!?!??!?! He does what he fucking wants but this hot niggerish shit is always under neath….

    DRIZZY SEASON NIGGA!!!!!!! WHOOOOOO!

  • jaidynbooking

    Not that huge as a rapper but won a grammy over nas @IoI ,and @starfox64 name some one who could have went in like this or better because you guys dont know what the fuck rapping is

  • TJP

    @jaidynbooking

    Have you heard Loco-Motive or Form Follows Function?

    They go in much harder than this without even trying, this is as hard Drake goes in and it is no-where near the two I mentioned.

    Nas had the album of the year but the Grammy’s are decided by mainstream artists, the awards don’t get given by ability. Come back when you know a thing or two.

  • deluks

    drake > jay z

  • J.MILLIONAIRE

    its ok

  • http://7themerson.com 7thEmerson

    Not bad at all

  • Da Business

    This nigga went in….

    Hottest rapper out, PERIOD!!!!!

  • TheChef

    Like MTV and pitchfork said, Kendrick changed the game by releasing an uncompromised master piece that had massive commercial success.
    Now ,everybody wants to release “real” hip hop songs without going pop but Drake is better when he sings his chorus, he isn’t a good rapper at all.

  • spqWny

    I agree, it was pretty good but the rapping is just average.

  • f0rest

    good song but please drake, sing your chorus, you aren’t in the same league as the other good MCs

  • Peekay

    dope

  • HOVA

    Why is Drake doing this right now? #Murder

    SOUNDS GOOD!!!! HE’S SPITTIN’!!!! WUT MORE DO U WANT???

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

    • B.Dot

      oh shit, even @mac DISEL hating ass approves. Hell has frozen over.

  • Word

    DAMN! I can’t front, Drake went in on this! Good gawd! (am in Dallas was one of my favorite Drake songs at the time Thank Me Later came out too, so to hear this follow up. Drake is winning! Now Cole gotta drop some heat rock next. These two going neck and neck for this spring season.

  • NoName

    The rapping isn’t very good to be fully honest.

  • krazy

    he is trying to do like Kendrick, trying to release an uncompromised classic but drake can’t do what Nas, Kendrick Lamar and Eminem do without chorus/singing

  • Anpn

    I enjoyed it lol.

    But yeah, the beat played a big role in this song, Drake should focus on his rap skill, I’m sure he’ll improve very soon.

    solid 7.5/10

  • Evil

    Its ok,nothing more.Drake will never be a great rapper and thats a fact.He doesnt have what it takes,its as simple as that.Some people have it and some dont.Drake falls into the latter.

  • It’s the roc

    Filthy McNasty. Drake slaughters the whole game at will, and he’s supposed to be a singer

  • troumAns

    Drake has serious rapping problems.
    Trash

  • diamonds on my blocka

    AHH SICK

  • j

    so people call drake a rob singer when he sings yet when he raps people are calling him to sing..? hate gets people confused. obv he aint on the level kendrick is on for rapping, like not many people are. drakes a good rapper, stay scheming ft proves this amongst other tracks. but the overall package drake brings is on a different level and he has done it from day one, i still bang so far gone to this day.

    i only fuck with drake, kendrick and nas right now, j.cole will bring it (maybe a$ap as well)

  • Philly

    @DeezNutz ayo I been saying that forever, only niggas that matter and him ad Kendrick. They the best

  • CM JUNK

    When its good its good…cant hate on this one at all!

  • Shan Tha Man

    He needed a chorus and the best was mediocre at best. SFTB kills this mixtape drake. Carry on…

  • Black Shady

    I love this type of shit from Drake. stuntin on ‘em hahahaha

  • Original Ty

    Drake definitely showed his pen game for what the song is about, which is really nothing specific. Just spittin’ whatever, which is cool. I enjoyed a lot of his lines.

    Let’s be real though, there was a little bit lacking in delivery. He got a little off beat a couple of times. A lyrical perfectionist (Like Jay was at one point) would have done another take to correct those flaws and to get a little more comfortable on the beat. He didn’t even do a lot of his patented ad libs cause he clearly had written himself into a couple of corners with the beat. Small criticism for good song but some of yall say “Best ever” and “Perfection” way to quickly these days. He’s really good, that’s enough for now.

  • Yamzz

    drake is a good rapper and better than 90% of todays mainstream people….but he is being promoted as hard as jay z was in his prime so therefore I must judge on the same scale which ultimately means this is just average i guess…no rhymes in there that really made me take a second listen but its nice to hear someone just spit with no gimmick for once…its sad that nobody else on the top 10 “hottest” MCs list can just flow for a couple minutes…besides nas but hes in a different class

  • Shamba Menelek

    Yall act like he said something amazing. lol By no means is this whack but yall overzealous fans act like he’s a god Mc and hes not. All he did was rap a long ass verse but the bars are mostly average level.

    Yall got be some young ass niggas to be impressed by this. It aint whack but it aint spectacular either.

    @Jaidynbooking You really think cause Drake won a grammy over Nas, Lupe, and The Roots that means he’s a better MC? All three of them are better Lyricist..What are smoking. You can argue Drake makes better song/songwriter, or hooks but to say he’s a better MC is laughable.

  • pILLpusha

    This the Drake we need to hear more often! Dude can spit!

  • Yamzz

    drake is a good rapper but he is promoted as hard as jay z was in his prime and thats what gets under peoples skin…hours after started from the bottom came out radios were already playing it like it was the greatest song ever..media dont even give the people a chance to decide if we like it or not they just force it on us until his songs get stuck in our heads…so if hes gonna get jay z promotion Im gonna rate him on the same scale as him which would make this decent at most…there wasnt any bars that made me have to replay it twice…but i must say it is good to see atleast one rapper that can go on a song and just flow with no gimmick to it…he might be the only rapper in the top 10 “hottest” MCs that can just go in for a couple mins…minus nas of course but hes in a diff class

  • JB

    Why he chose to release the Boi-1da-produced cut on this particular day? Well, that may have to do with where he placed — number five, to be exact — on MTV’s much-debated “Hottest MCs in the Game” list.

    It seems Drizzy felt he should have been placed higher. Or rather, he just doesn’t even care about the list at all. He’s beyond rap lists, to hear him tell it. He says as much on his new cut, spitting:

    “I swear, fuck them niggas this year/ I made Forbes list, nigga / Fuck your list, everything’s lookin’ gorgeous.”
    Elsewhere, he takes shots at the Weeknd, whom he’s seemingly had a falling out with.

    “I show love, never get the same out of niggas/ Guess it’s funny how money can make change out of niggas/ For real, some nobody started feeling himself/ A couple somebodies started killing themself/ A couple albums dropped those are still on the shelf/ I bet them shits would have popped if I was willing to help.”

    And there are thinly-veiled shots at Jay-Z:

    “I’m headed to the bank nigga/ Sinatra lifestyle, I’m just being Frank, nigga.”

    Addresses his beef with Chris Brown:

    “Bad press during the summer over allegations/ I ain’t lyin’, my nigga, my time is money/ That’s why I ain’t got time for a nigga who’s time is comin.”

    And his rumored romance with Rihanna:

    “Where you think she at when she ain’t with you?/ Wildin’, doin’ shit that’s way out of your budget/ Owl swe

    I guess this one song makes Drake the best rapper right now. (enter sarcasm here)

  • http://aol.com f*ck your opinion

    kendrick and drake gotta do a non- love song together.. not taking anything away from poetic justice at all but i wanna hear both of em straight spittin like a minute and a half each just one hook in between verses whatttttttttttttt and joey badass whattttttttttttt

  • Rhino

    I like the originality feel to this record. Seems like Drake got that right mix of humility and braggadocio that gives him a unique seat in MUSIC right now. Gotta respect his Co-Signs…i.e Bun-B, Wayne, add name here ____; I think his pedigree also makes for something needed on the larger scale scene as well. 5 Star gotta be happy with the people in the huddle, even though he still making more power plays on different courts.

  • Oj da Cornball

    I’m not gonna hate, but is still average rap, it’s good. nothing wack at all, but COME THE HECK ON, this is no amazing record for these stanish reactions.

    I warn you fluff boys to always measure lyrcal content versus 90’s and 2000’s MC cause no rapper/MC of today come close yet.
    Yeah, we pass the 90’s stuff, i agree, but skills wise nothing blew away yet.

    I think my ears are broken or im allergic to his sound because nothing he puts out is good in my opinion. I keep checking his shit because people wont shut up about him and Im just not hearing it.

    ^^
    You measure success as having classics? Nigga gets money and is able to keep doing it. Isnt that why rappers put out music? Pretty sure he dont give a fuck.

    All niggas do is try to push a dude into the “he has to make a classic/win a ring” argument.
    Drake is the new LeBron.

    He makes one classic album (which no one would ever admit) and then theyll say he has to make 3 more. Then 3 more after that. Then become a billionaire or he aint shit. Yall gotta understand, for any rapper ( like J Cole and whoever else), putting out shit that everyone likes is impossible. Dont expect to like it, just expect it to be whatever he wanted to put out.
