A better title for this track is “Drake and friends” since Drizzy’s blueprint is all over these proceedings. Drake handles the chorus and provides the best verse as well. Wayne sounds like he’s still shaking off the effects of his recent health scare, Ross is merely serviceable, and Future is thrown in randomly in the closing minute. Not an immediate smash guest spot like Drake did for Khaled with “I’m On One” a few years back, but this is still solid.

On my King James shit trying to win here again…
Drake is on his young Jay-Z steez putting rap rivals (and apparently old friend The Weekend) in their place on this one. Definitely feeling this over “Started From the Bottom” (which was a heater is its own right). I’m making a prediction that Drake’s upcoming album Nothing Was The Same will be his best project.

Nice to see Nicki Minaj produce a video for one of the few straight Hip-Hop tracks off Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. Cam comes through with the standout verse out of the three. As with any Minaj video, you’re treated to an array of loud colors, quirky faces and sexual innuendo (not that the latter is a problem). The video is directed by Colin Tilley.

Most hardcore Hip-Hop weren’t excited about the idea of a G.O.O.D. Music-Young Money battle. After hearing this new diss track from Lil Wayne, expect even the casual fans to lose ethusiasm. This is a good example of why saying names doesn’t automatically ensure a better record over a subliminal diss. If the supposed subliminal is clever enough in its wordplay but still clear enough to know exactly who it’s addressing, like Pusha’s “Exodus 23:1,” give me that any day over a “direct” song like this.

As most are aware, Nas has been dropping some vintage verses over the last year (“Ghetto Dreams,” “Nasty,” “Triple Beam Dreams,” “Carter IV Outro” etc.). That streak continues on Tyga’s newly leaked album Careless World (February 21). All three come correct over the Olympicks’ low-key, soothing production while reflecting on the regal throne as the metaphor for success. When’s Life Is Good dropping again?

“I been at the top for awhile and ain’t jumped it…”
After Lil Wayne blatantly laid out his pop aspirations with “How to Love” a few months back, the Young Money leader is due to give his core Hip-Hop fans some treats from Tha Carter IV. Producers 40 and T-Minus lay a mellow, mournful melodies lend a smoke-filled club atomsphere to this production. Drake’s holds the melody on the chorus, but doesn’t go into any full out singing. His explicit description of a stripper pussy popping in his face ensures ”She Will” has a good chance of being a gentleman’s club staple over the next few months. Look for this to be available soon as an iTunes download.
