Drake
Unforgettable (featuring Young Jeezy)

I'm not completely sold (just yet) on Drake's debut LP, Thank Me Later, which was publicly floated via Limewire about a week ago.

To be honest, the whole thing sounds a little 'weak'. Not in the sense it doesn't pack a hard chart-topping punch. No, it's all over that hip-poppers shit like sprinkles on ice cream. I mean more in the sense that I'm pretty sure even I could kick the shit out of Drake. He just sounds like a bit of a fairy, a bit too much "in touch with his feelings" and maybe just trying a bit too hard to win over the dance floor fellas. No homo.

Plus, he's taking himself far too seriously. Doesn't he realise Degrassi was a comedy? He should take a leaf out of Lil Wayne's book and rap more about turds.

That said, Unforgettable is a fkkking remarkable song, the clear album standout and even a potential candidate for hip-hop-banger-of-the-year. It sizzles like crack at Xmas!

I mean, it's got it all. There's the heavy usage of a sample from a classic Aaliyah song, the best opening line on the album ("this is one of my dumbest flows ever") and then there's Jeezy - who pretty much forgets it's a bit of 'love jam' and momentarily turns the whole thing into some sort of bring-ya-whole-crew hardcore romping. It's pretty much wall-to-floor winning.

AND .. total BONUS for the ballers!! Here is the original Aaliyah song that is sampled, (At Your Best) You Are Love, which is in fact a cover of a 1976 Isley Brothers hit (thanx Tony Wikipedia).

Thank Me Later will be officially released on June 15 via Young Money / Cash Money.

"In 2001, Drake began his acting career, playing the role of Jimmy Brooks, a character on Degrassi: The Next Generation. In the show, Brooks is a basketball star who became physically disabled after he was shot by a classmate. His role on the show ended in 2009, when his character graduated from Degrassi. He appeared in 138 episodes. He appeared in the 2008 television movie Degrassi Spring Break Movie." - Clearly the high points of Drake's career.

I love that Jeezy has so little to say that he has to start every sentence with a elongated "yeah"

The album blows.
