Drake: Scary Hours
Last Saturday Drake released his EP Scary Hours. Scary Hours features two singles: God’s Plan, and Diplomatic Immunity, and in very Drake form and fashion, people are already quoting some of the more iconic bars from the songs:
“She say, ‘Do you love me?’ I tell her, ‘Only partly’
I only love my bed and my momma, I’m sorry”
In the second single of the album, Diplomatic Immunity, Drake seems to throw shade at anyone who doubts his ability to still be a top 5 rapper. Drake also notes that although he hasn’t been in the spotlight recently, he has a sort of ‘diplomatic immunity’ in the rap game, viewing himself as untouchable.
2017 was year of the Migos, and it seems like 2018 might not be that different. Migos have officially set the release date for their highly anticipated ‘Culture II’ album, releasing January 26th. Supastars, the third hype single for their ‘Culture II’ release, dropped yesterday, and of course talks about their lavish lifestyles, and how they are at the top of their game, ‘Supastars’.
The Migos also posted a list of the producer credits for their ‘Culture II’ album to their instagram, and it truly is a superstar roster, even citing Huncho, and DJ Durel, the migos official DJ, as executive producers.
SiR, an artist on the Top Dawg Entertainment label, released his new album ‘November’ on January 19th. This R&B album pulls from a multitude of different musical styles. On the promotional single, ‘Something Foreign’, SiR pairs up with ScHoolboy Q to deliver a jazzy R&B hit about expensive cars, love and success in their rap careers. The melodic piano notes, and ScHoolboy Q’s softer verse, gives the song a relaxing vibe. The Song’ D’Evils’ samples a reggae song on loop, giving this R&B song a unique spin.
Much of ‘November’ talks about the frustrations within relationships, especially with the pressure of increasing fame. SiR often talks about knowing what he is doing wrong, but not being able, or not wanting to change. A lot of the album talks about short term relationships, and not being able to fully commit oneself.
