Wake and Drake

As soon as I got up this morning I turned on Drake's "Comeback Season" mixtape (FIIIIYERRRRRRRRR) and that put me in the zone. Then I got to my desk and checked my bloglines and what shows up in my NahRight feed?

Nothing other than videos from his performance at SUNY this weekend (vids from (props to Eskay). Don't let the weak audio fool you,

Best I Ever Had

If you don't like this song something might actually be wrong with you....

"Sweatpants, hair tied, chillin' with no make-up on/That's when you're the prettiest, I hope that you don't take it wrong"

"Buzz so big I could probably sell a blank disc"

"She call me the referee because I be so official!/My shirt ain't got no strips but I could make your ---- whiiiistle!/Like the Andy Griffith theme song/And who told you to put them jeans on?/Double-cup love, you the one I lean on/"

"Every single show she out there reppin like a mascot/Get it from the back and make ya ----- bra strap pop/All up in ya slot till a ----- hit the jackpot!"


"Hardly home but always reppin!"

"Women don't get saved around me even on a Sunday"

"Your frame makes me want to bowl a strike"

Every Girl, Successful, and Brand New

"Are any of ya'll into girls like I am? Lesbi-Honest!"

"They be staring at the money like it's unfamiliar...Just enough will solve your problems, too much will kill ya"

"Nickel for my thoughts, dimes in my bed, quarters of the kush shape the lines in my head"

"This lost boy got fly without Peter Pan, and my delivery got me buzzin' like the pizza man."

i put the album on repeat and listening to him in my sleep the whole way up to NY Friday night. all 4 hours of the ride.

been talking about this boy all weekend in NY tho. hot 97 plays him on repeat. how come we don't hear him here?! not fair.

linking this to my blog. he needs as many eyes as possible.

Between Comeback Season and So Far Gone Drake has impressed me to the point that I'm already an admitted STAN.

You'll here him here soon. The thing about NYC is that it's like the epicenter for hip-hop in some ways. If you blow up there, the after-shocks will be felt throughout the world, lol. So expect his buzz to rise VERY soon in places other than Toronto, NYC, and your and my iPods.

Best I Ever Had is also a very good first single to drop. He's about to blow.

Best I Ever Had is what they play in NY. That and something else. i can't wait to hear my baby on the DMV radio. i'll be so proud.

Yeah he nice but that Comeback Season album cover is extremely suspect! I been bumping So Far Gone for minute, haven't heard Comeback Season. I heard a few cuts off the "My Name Is" mixtape as well. Wayne better watch his back....

gosh. i'm just turning the videos on and i got goosebumps. do you hear the crowd?! OMG! OMG!

Best thing about Drake (or maybe I should say Aubrey Drake Graham) at this point is that he is still humble and grounded. If you listen to him in the interviews he's got a humble but calm confidence about that is something you don't always see from artists nowadays.

@E: Suspect? I don't get it. I haven't heard the My Name Is joint but from the looks of things it's stuff from his other mixtapes mashed together.

But again, that cover for Comeback Season ( is fine to me. That's some grown-man shyt...I definitely have a jacket like that and I rock it the same way. Now the part in his haircut is another story but hey, what can you do? To each his own, lol.

It's not just the part in the hair, it's that background as well...something just aint right! Maybe I'm just looking for some chains, a tilted brim, a grill, some cars, half naked women.... something!!! Instead we have Drake profiling in front of the autumn foliage, with his name in matching letters. LOL! Looks like a Brian Mcknight or Neyo album cover ...Year of the Gentlemen indeed! I know I sound really ignorant right now so I'll just stop there....LOL!

@Laf: I dunno man. I'll see how it plays out. Not really my thing. But if the price is reasonable (like that's likely) I will definitely consider it.


@Sei: "I know you got a roommate, call me when there's no one there!"

When I heard "Best I Ever Heard" on the radio over the weekend I was like "YAYYY!!!" thanks so much for putting me onto this dude...he's the truth. I even listened to Drake on my way to church this morning....shhhhh.(:>.

$50.00 aint nothing for a memorable time. I'd be down too.

You're welcome. I haven't really been this STAN-ish since Kanye first hit the scene.

Be careful listening to him on the way to church though: "Women don't get saved 'round me, even on a Sunday!" LOL.

May I Know what's the brand of the jacket that he's wearing?
Thanks :)
