On a day where Kanye West debuted a new song, brought out his G.O.O.D. family for a concert in New York City and joined Diddy on stage for his All-Star show with Snoop, it’s Drizzy who owned the evening. Releasing If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late straight to iTunes. 17 new tracks (well, 16, since “Used To” was featured on Lil Wayne’s Sorry 4 The Wait 2) with minimal features from Wayne, PARTYNEXTDOOR and Travi$ Scott.
Based off a few late night listens, an easy standout is “6PM in New York.” Like “5AM in Toronto” and “9AM in Dallas” before it, the Boi-1da/Frank Dukes/Sevn Thomas-produced cut finds Drizzy rattling off rhyme after rhyme after rhyme for over four minutes straight – ethering Tyga in just a few bars.
“I heard a lil lil homie talking reckless in Vibe/ Quite a platform you chose, you shoulda kept it inside/ Oh you tried, it’s so childish calling my name on the world stage/ You need to act your age and not your girl’s age”
Another personal favorite, “6 Man” is below as well. The flip of The Roots’ “You Got Me” at the end? Ahh man!
The producers are the real MVP though. Shouts to everyone listed below.
