We walk the same path, but got on different shoes… Drake

I can’t get enough of Drake recently. I’ve been listening to his music for about half a year now, I didn’t know much about him until I listened to his album ‘Thank me later‘. I’ve got to be honest before I sat down and listened to this I thought he was overrated. After listening to the album, I thought he was a genius. The way he can paint a picture with his lyrics and tell a story with such smoothness is fascinating. His flow is relaxing and something many people feel like they can relate too. The Canadian born singer is currently working on a new album, entitled ‘Take Care’. This is scheduled to be released in either March or April next year (2011), there is already a lot of hype surrounding the new album. Mainly because ‘Thank Me Later’ turned out to be such a huge album.

Virtually all of his tours in the UK are sell outs, proving that Drake is a universal star. He recently won GQ’s man of the year, highlighting the influence the music industry has. The lyrics in the title of the post are taken from the rappers recent collaboration with Lil Wayne ‘Right Above It’. Clearly Drake is a source of inspiration for many people and it will be interesting to see if he can keep up the good work.
