Drizzy returns with his 5th studio album and this one is pure brilliance. Everyone was waiting for this one to see if Drake would reply to Pusha T and also address some of the swirling rumors surrounding himself, his family, and his career. Drake DEFINITELY took the L from Pusha T, but I think he still was able to roll out his album release gracefully. After basically conceding to King Push, Drake drops a double album for us for the summer. This album has 2 sides, a rap side and a singing side and both are fantastic. Of course you have the singles “God’s Plan” and “Nice For What” which are both flawless in their own right. The intro “Survival” is Drake’s chance to set the bar for the album and also address some of the current issues he is dealing with. “Nonstop” is a dope track where Drake switches up his usual flow to show you his versatility. On “Talk Up,” he enlists the assistance of the God MC Jay-Z and we get yet another classic verse from Hova. The crowning achievement on the rap side is easily “Sandra’s Rose” produced by DJ Premier. This is Drake at his finest over a flawless beat with flawless, top level rhymes. This might possibly be his best song ever. On the singing side, he flips is and shows us why he is great in that lane as well. Some great songs include “Jaded” and “Don’t Matter To Me” which has a Michael Jackson feature on it. Only the best of the best could enlist help from the posthumous king of pop. The best song on this side to me is “Ratchet Happy Birthday” which has a dope track and Drake sings over top of it effortlessly. This could possibly be his best album ever. If it is not his number 1, then it might be a close second. This will be your soundtrack to the summer of 2018.

OVERALL RATING: 4.5 out of 5 Cheesesteaks
