It’s been a week since we’ve digested What A Time To Be Alive! Future and Drake made the OVOFBG connection official by releasing this timely project. The heavily built up anticipation for this album set itself up to disappoint some fans who probably expected a Drake and Future rendition of Jay-Z and Kanye’s Watch the Throne. In my opinion it didn’t quite reach that pinnacle but it wasn’t a bad tape at all. I definitely expected two of the hottest in rap right now to go way harder but songs like “Scholarships” and “I’m the Plug” still sufficed for what I came for. Of course it wouldn’t be real Drake album if he didn’t take the time to throw a couple of shots at his current opposition. On the song “Big Rings” Future even joined in with the line “You just a battle rapper, I’m an official trapper. N*ggas be droppin’ subliminals, n*gga they’re just some jibber jabber”. In true stan fashion people took to instagram flooding Meek Mill’s comments with diamonds.
While I can’t say there is a song I dislike I’m not sure how many of these will be in my playlist rotations a couple of months from now. If you haven’t already (????) you can listen to the album below or via Apple Music and gather your own opinion of it:
