It’s 6:25pm EST and the entire Rap Internet is practically glued to OVO Sound on Beats1 as I type this. Drizzy Drake is playing disc jockey as he plays some of his favorite songs and explains how his original intention was just to hit Atlanta and make a few songs with Future, but his ATL friend’s energy was so magnetic that they ended up doing a whole mixtape. “It’s a little soundtrack for the people that need it right now,” says Drake.
The clock just hit 6:28pm and the tape just started playing after a quick intro from October’s very own. I’m not going to lie I’m still tripping on that fact that a peer of mine named this mixtape. Yes, Ernest Baker came up with the tape’s name based off a phone call he had with Drizzy when he hit Ernest to let him know about the project. Wow.
