After teaming up with the Billboard Hot 100 hit “Jimmy Cooks” to shut down Drizzy’s honestly it doesn’t matter album Earlier this year, the “Knife Talk” duo decided to move forward with a full collaborative album.
More of Billboard
It’s been a tricky but fascinating launch for His lost while Drake and 21 prepared a fake Fashion magazine and mocked a small desk Concert that is not going to debut in NPR anytime. The God 6 even joked about his porn fetishes in a fake interview with radio legend Howard Stern, which led to bizarre hentai posts of him on his Instagram story hours before showtime.
Drake is certainly no stranger to the art of collaboration, having been dishing out assists as an NBA point guard for over a decade. His lost it’s a rollercoaster ride, running 16 tracks with a single credited guest appearance sprinkled in by Travis Scott.
Help yourself and check out our song ratings below.
16. “Privileged Rappers”
Being a “privileged rapper” is a label Drake is tired of hearing. He calls out those who walk the industry with their heads held high even though they haven’t had a hit in years, while 21 uses his 16 beats to get raunchy about a certain love interest. Either way, this isn’t going to be anyone’s favorite record.
15. “Treachery Twins”
There’s not enough bromance in rap. The Atlanta-raised rhymer and Drake are showing love to each other as “cheating twins,” or they could be talking about other people entirely. Still, there are times when simplicity wins. That was the case with 21 Savage when he walks out of a bar brazen about how he never identifies himself in nightclubs because they already know he’s 21.
14. “Silent Hours”
The pace slows down for a sort of six-minute intermission. Drake refills his wine glass and reminisces about some of his mishaps in romantic encounters. “Hours in Silence” finds Drizzy dealing with the same toxic women issues that plagued him in Take care of yourself while essentially boxing 21 Savage out of the marathon. Whether it’s the regret of buying her a Rolex or even a condo in the first month, that’s simply a reality most listeners can’t relate to.
13. “Boys with no money”
21 Savage finally gets the best of Drizzy in a record breaking unanimous decision. The “Sneakin” duo won’t be talking to the broke guys, but unfortunately for fans, that’s about 99.99 percent of listeners compared to Drake and 21. They both point middle fingers at adidas while proudly wearing their stripes. Nike, which should make Kanye happy. . However, “Broke Boys” sits at the back of the queue when it comes to favorite albums.
12. “I guess it fucks me”
First of all, what a song title for an album worth closing. Drake is always calculated and precise with the message he wants to leave with fans before heading into the next era of music. Here, Drizzy becomes evocative about a registered mistress where he painfully admits that sometimes he has no choice but to avoid the truth, even if that’s followed by a flex on how his Air Drake plane couldn’t even land at the small Hamptons airport. . “Truth or dare, I’ll take a double dare / Truth is suicide / I’d rather live a lie, keep you out,” he raps.
11. “Pussy and Millions”
The credited solo feature comes to the rescue on “Pussy & Millions” giving the album a different texture thanks to the Houston rage. Travis Scott gets hot as he leaves fans faking it for more while UTOPIA‘s landing awaits shortly.
10. “More M”
Metro Boomin’ reunion with 21 Savage is always a dangerous but welcome combination. “More M’s” joins Metro-21-Drake’s list of collaborations that includes “No Complaints” and “Mr. Right now, “God 6 invades the beat “skating like a Canadian from Montreal.” Drake confidently states that a Verzuz game with his catalog is an unfair advantage as neither opponent is worth his time.
9. “Jumbotron S–t Poppin”
Drake on a F1LTHY beat is the surprise of the year. However, Drizzy is not shy about trying to find his pocket within the distorted sound where Playboi Carti and Destroy Lonely call home. We’re even letting Drake get away with referring to himself as a vampire at age 36 because he’s God 6.
8. “Major Distribution”
Drizzy’s pompous chant about success throws the listener off course before the dark beat makes a sharp left turn off the road. OVO’s Boss Stick shifts up a gear and tries to match the acceleration with the fastest he’s hit all year. He hands the baton to 21 for one of the most forgettable verses of his on the album, aside from NBA players Steve Francis and Andrew Wiggins somehow mentioning it in back-to-back bars.
One of the many headline-grabbing lyrics comes when Drake references a beautiful girl who tries to rap but isn’t impressed. “She tries 10 rap, she’s good at quiet,” he admits. Many fans tried to connect the dots with emerging “Munch” rapper Ice Spice, whom Drake unfollowed on Instagram after an initial meeting at The 6. The first solo venture is a bull’s-eye for Drizzy.
7. “Turn your fight”
Weather His lost could be the title of the album, Drizzy stands up for women while criticizing American politicians who make fumbling decisions about their reproductive rights. He then leans into the broke guys who can’t get reservations at the Italian hotspot Carbone while he has the last table any given night.
Savage also offers a free game when he admits that he asks girls for their “Finstas” to find out who they really are instead of their real Instagram accounts. However, it’s almost halftime and Drake has shone as he brings in 21 for the journey to this point in the album.
6. “In BS”
The tag team champions pass the baton back and forth as one looks to outdo the other. The swaggering rhymes reach a crescendo as the Slaughter Gang CEO and Drake flex on their trademark prowess. 21 admits that he has no problem turning someone else’s song into his own, while 6 God brags about how his mere presence will cause labels to blow up an artist’s phone.
“I get on your song and make you sound like you,” 21 raps over OZ’s ethereal production before Drizzy chimes in. “I get on your song and make a label think they need you, really!”
Lil Yachty clocks in at No. 21 and provides ad-libs throughout the horn-tinged record. Drake is back to his bragging ways while also questioning his romantic decisions. It’s rare to hear the king of Canada comment on politics where he admits he never voted, but if he did, adult film star Teanna Trump has his vote.
4. “3 AM in Glenwood”
With Drake not breathing down his neck, 21 Savage enjoys another genuine moment that defines His lost. Drizzy usually swoons over hyped samples, but 21 shows that two can play this game as he took a page from the book of 6 Gods by using a time-stamped song title, which is usually reserved as a specialty Drake’s. but even the OVO captain had to be impressed.
21 showcases his mature lyrical combat ability with references to Steph Curry and Stephon Marbury and then criticizes Mase’s relationships with artists. He even opens up about turning to Kim Kardashian to get her brother out of jail as he takes listeners on a journey of what’s going on in his turbulent life.
3. “Rich Flex”
Drake takes his introductions very seriously and he and 21 aren’t lost here setting the tone for the project. The 6 God steals the show in Tay Keith’s menacing change of pace in the second half, where Drake interpolates TI’s classic “24” flow while flexing on the industry, which he then slyly turns into an homage to the late great Kobe Bryant.
2. “In the middle of the ocean”
This is Peak Drake in his Goyard bag. An upgraded sampler and plenty of room to breathe – just give Drizzy enough track space to take off like LeBron James in 2008. Drake opens up about his opulent life of luxury eating food most people can’t even pronounce and in the The same sentence criticizes Serena Williams’ husband, Alexis Ohanian, letting him know that they still have problems. That’s the kind of versatility hip-hop lacks.
He even ticks the box for hip-hop nerds with AZ and Nas’s sly sample “Mo Money, Mo Murder.” Isn’t that what Drake does? He checks every box as a rapper. Getting a TED Talk from Birdman was also a nice finishing touch.
1. “Crazy Circus”
An outstanding certificate of His lost. Sampling a classic like Daft Punk’s “One More Time” can easily get cheesy, which it did on DJ Khaled’s “Staying Alive,” but Drake turns it into greatness. He wants to smoke with everyone and even admits that he only agreed to hang out with Kanye West at the Larry Hoover concert last year because of his admiration for industry titan J. Prince. Megan Thee Stallion has already replied to a bar that Drake possibly targeted her with when referencing the shooting case she’s barricaded in.
Drake used this album as the opportunity to reassert himself as the leader in the rap food chain once again with His lost serving as a stark reminder to fans who may have been distracted by his penchant for dancing. honestly it doesn’t matter album from earlier this year that you can’t play with.
