    I'm done taking recommendations on music from people. Dude told me to peep that new Future and that shit was beyond trash. Even the beats were weak, and Future stays with hard beats.

    Shit was some soft "in your feelings" shit from somebody who can't sing or rap. Over trash beats no less.

    In more positive news, I swear New York has the strongest rap game. Like no other place can even compete.

    I dunno man, I love London but for American scenes New York is one of the best. I think Atlanta is overrated and you can all come at me

    The only rapper I like out of ATL is TI. That place is definitely overrated.

    My younger brother raves about lamar. Has his pictures all over his bedroom wall, a few albums. He is 18 and genuinely enjoys rap. Oh he likes Drake too, but i am not sure if Drake is considered a rapper or a singer (this is not said in an offensive way at all) i am not really a genius when it comes to rap, but hey, learning a totally different genre of music other than one that you are accustomed to is fun :)

    Atlanta never gets the credit they deserve. The NY sound just started to come back TBH.

    I did know that Nola, but I thought he was talking about some specific club for some reason.

    Houston used to be good for rap. Dunno what happened there, just stopped producing or fell under the radar

    Mid 2000s H-Town dominated the chart

    Devin the dude just released an album. It's called acoustic levitation.

    Drake should have just put out like 7 of these joints and trashed the rest. There is some good stuff here. All the worst tracks are the rap tracks, he just sounds uninspired rapping and the beats are kinda meh. I realize this is a "playlist" of cut tracks and b sides but yeah.
  • FrostyAUFrostyAU Lynx in your sinks Joined: Posts: 7,273
    To me Drake has never sounded inspired or individual. Everything he does Jay Z already did. To me Drake is and always will be just a good voice. Like Adele, pretty to listen to but I don't fuck with her music

    lol dude tries to be cool and its a force. its not natural for him so when he wants to be...it ends up being his meh voice. for me im digging it for its sounds and less for the lyrical content. im not really sure what hes gonna go with radio wise cause alot of it is stuff imo radio wont fuck wit. like house music?? radio dont give a shit about house.

    plus we knew this wasnt gonna be super hot since there was no voicemail.

    More Life is Drake realizing he needs to give the rapping up. Drake as a fake Dominican-Jamaican is way better than him as a fake Texan-Georgian at this point. I also used to liked when ge got lyrical but all the ghost writing shit killed that.

    Hell, maybe a switch to straight singing and no rap will work for Drake. I was up in here sad that Childish Gambino was shunning rap, but I realized the other day that I've played "Redbone" at least 200 times in my car or in my house since it came out. None of his rap songs got that play count for me in such a short amount of time (though some were close).

    If a switch like that can work out for Gambino, Drake should be able to yield good results too.

    Drake isnt trying to be "fake Jamacian-Dominican" hes ahead of the curve riding the wave of music thats popular (always popular) in the summer time.

    He's always had this fusion of styles but its more prevalent now that hes an established artist with the liberty to take more musical "risks" that open up his fanbase.

    I dont see a problem with this, at least he knows how to maintain a balance instead of making "themed" albums.

    Drake does have an ecclectic taste in music, which is why he's so popular (and the reason I support his transition into more pop music). But he is phony as fuck lol, nigga got 8 accents hahahahaha.

    I agree that maybe he should lay off the rap he sounds really uninspired on all the rap cuts here and the beats on em are zzzzzzzzzz. Normally people would be mad at a rapper going all pop but Drake is clearly excelling in pop over rap the last 2 albums.
