That Drake diss track sounded like the music they would play at an experimental art exhibit in Brooklyn where some woman is rolling in paint on the floor.
That song didn't make me think of Hardcore gangster. It made think of an old Thai woman working on my calves with scented oils. So 2015.
I heard the song and didn't know it was a diss until I was told that it was. I still don't get it so Iam taking ya'll's word on this one.
I had to vote zzzz because I actually fell asleep the first time I listened to this "diss track"
I have never been a Drake stan, but I respected him because I knew he was a good lyricist. Hearing that Drake has a ghostwriter, then hearing the reference tape released but Funk Master Flex is horrible. Drake is one of the biggest rappers out right now. To hear that he doesn't write his own raps is devastating to the game and it is a testament to how Hip Hop isn't what it use to be. Drake's stans are in denial OR they excuse it and say that everyone gets reference tapes like Beyonce and Rihanna. It isn't the same. Rihanna isn't claiming to be the greatest rapper or that her pen game is tight. If you are comparing Drake to Rihanna in his uses of reference tapes, then you have to admit that Drake isn't a hip hop star. He is a pop act. This is what pop artist do. I could understand why Meek Mill would be upset. Hip hop has always been competitive. It has been about who is the best. Meek Mill realized that he wasn't going against one person. He was going against a team of writers. Its an unfair advantage.
That being said, I don't think Drake has had a ghostwriter the entire time. That diss track sounds like Drake circa 2008, i.e. it sounds like he was reading it off of his blackberry. But all the stuff that Drake has released in the past two years, i.e. 0 to 100, 10 Bands, Energy, Know Yourself, etc. all sound like Quentin Miller.
