very cool nothing earth shattering but a cool video alittle too dimly lit I know what’s what they were going for dark and ominous like the track but you really could’nt see shit LOL other then that not bad although I do wish Weezys verse on the mix tape version could have made the cut it’s a good one
Unless there is a joint agreement for the entire Universal Music Group to buy a large number of his new album I fear that shit gone tank!!
This is not very good.. 2 verses? Trey part is TERRIBLE!! The normal hook is dope but I dont see him surviving the hype.. Comparing his hype to what 50 did is silly.. 50 put out 4 mixtapes AFTER giving Power of the Dollar to the streets… Maybe they are rereleasing all of this mixtape stuff officially because they aren’t feeling whats coming out of these high priced studio sessions!!
And why rerelease it as a stand alone album why not just make it a double disk?
The idea of Drake dropping and hitting like an Eminem or 50 Cent is foolish…
Lets play over under on his album sales which dont mean shit but 5mill is a pretty good success mark with followups of 1.5-2mill being the sign of a solid mainstream success..
I SAY WAY UNDER THOSE MARKS!! I say 450k first week 1.1million overall and under a million after that..
God Bless the kid!! I hope that 2mil is recouped fast because from the list of feat. being thrown around that budget is sounding MASSIVE!
No hate on trey, but u see how him being close friends with drake before drake got big is helping his career. Also the chris brown thing too and everybody thinking ne-yo is gay, has really made an opening for him now, cause before trey wasn’t getting no shine with them two around, plus his mixtapes too helped him. However, trey if u read this, I’m not getting the album leagally, there’s no way. I refuse to buy an album with this guy and no shirt on, c’mon son. Lastly, drake I know it’s ya thing, but u gotta learn to keep that right hand down when u rap man.
Ok lets see if he drops and does 11 million… thats the only way to answer that question…
Eminem built a base with his first album then he grew and made the most HARDCORE real hip hop fan in the poorest hoods around the world say “That White Boy is Sick” and Drake doesn’t have that. He’s going to have to go so pure hip hop on his next album Dj Premier production and really spit not just make sense!
But he has made a career out of A mixtape ” so far gone” got him his deal.. people remember drake been in the light for about 6 months and already on a jay z album name another new artist who isn’t sign to the roc who did that….. his ablum besides jay z is gotta be the most anticipated album for the rest of the year….damn 50 cent joint his 1st to joints “get up” and “ok you’re right” has no steam and we all know we don’t want a lil wayne rock album….
tru we did love eminem but the pill poppin shyt we can’t relate to it was cool at first now its old news…drake got a buzz built on pure talent. He didn’t get shot or stopped at the border with a hundred keys lol its pure talent…give him his props
Record sales wont answer the question of who had the bigger buzz because we are living in a different time and music climate. NO RAPPER will ever sell 11 million again no matter how big their buzz is. Even 50 would admit that. You wanna see who had the bigger buzz prior to albums dropping lets look at the track record. Drake’s had top 10 songs, his records all over the radio, songs with legends like Jay-z and MJB, a song that people are calling the biggest song of the year(forever), and so far gone was bigger than 50’s mixtapes prior to GRODT.
What did 50 have before his album run besides and mostly underground NY buzz and an Eminem/Dr. Dre cosign?
you think he’s gonna get rid of the stuck hand? i have no problems with trey songz and his work hard body, but my bros,their friends, my male friends will also not pick up a trey songz cd ever…unless they trying to get some girl, then the games are on.
videos alright. songs better without video. good beat on the song. i’m also about the 2 verses thing…and also trey songz does it on the hook. i like the song, but it’s not something stuck in my head or makes me feel anything really.
i actually liked Drake the first time i heard him on a Colin Munroe mixtape, he is a talented guy. Now that being said, his buzz is manufactured and his ego and comments are rediculous. 50 never compared himself to no one, neither did Em, both created there own lane and did everything it took to become successful. 50’s first release “How to Rob” and mixtapes where classic material. And he didn’t sell his soul by sucking niggas dicks, the industry respected him cuz he was a force to be noticed. This drake guy has way to many yes men to ever become what 50, Em or Jay was. And Em, well, no one can say this guy has more lyrical skills than that white boi!
I give him 2 albums before he is another Soulja Boi or Rick Ross.
I feel what you saying people don’t understand the money drake had from his acting and thats why he even had artist features.
When 50 came out, there was no artist in his click on his mixtapes bigger than him I mean Drake was already with Wayne on tour just by knowing him.
So everytime Drake speaks how organic his mixtape was I think ehh Charles Hamiltion had one feature that was not as well known as him, same with Wale first mixtape, Cool Kids, Asher Roth, even Kid Cuddi all did there thing with nobody on there mixtapes to start
Not to say its not good to get somebody on ur mixtape because if you can than do so like Drake. but he thinks he got big by him self and he became big because he had a joint with artist like Wayne & Trey Songs the other guys I named made there names more organic than Drake did
It was cool but there was nothing special in the video, I mean like it was okay but I bet BET will play it before Slaughterhouse The One makes the count down. No disrespect though cause Drake do do some nice stuff but thats whats real
