What do you get when you take Drake and add Carnage to the mix?
Answer: one of Drake's worst albums of his career.
And that's saying something coming off of Certified Loverboy.
People, aka Drake apologists, are calling this a dancehall album, pointing out that it's being hated on because it's "different" genre wise.
But if this is "dancehall", then fine. How do you explain the AWFUL production?
Going out on a limb here thinking Drake saw what Kanye did with Donda, taking a risk artistically and experimenting with different sounds and took a stab at it himself. Sadly the only thing worse than the material is the album cover. (Look at that thing)
The new LP includes 14 songs, and was executive produced by Drake, Noah “40” Shebib, Drake’s manager Oliver El-Khatib, Noel Cadastre.. 21 Savage is the album’s sole featured artist, appearing on the last track titled “Jimmy Cooks.”
The sad thing here is that Black Coffee was also an executive producer listed which is kind of shocking considering he puts out absolute fire. And he was responsible for one of Drake's better cuts in recent memory -
I'm not usually a hater when it comes to new music. It might have something to do with the fact the Celtics played with no heart tonight but I don't think I'm crazy calling a spade a spade and saying this album is a major disappointment.
Why rush this 9 months after CLB?
If you're keeping score at home that's two duds in a row for "the 6 God".
