Some updates in the fallout of last night’s surprise release:
For one, Tyga responded to Drake’s (excellent) diss on “6PM in New York” with some since deleted tweets.
Moving on, Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late is projected for a whopping 500K sold after last night’s stellar drop. Whow! Surprise releases FTW. You think Birdman got the message? Free agent Drizzy comin’ up…? We shall see…
First impressions: 2, 3, 4, 9, 12, 14, 15, 17 all inspired run backs immediately. That’s a higher than average percentage people. Looking forward to digesting this more as a whole this weekend for some further thoughts.
Cool story bro: I lit up at the sample of Henry Krinkle’s “Stay” because that’s a great tune to begin with but because Mickey Factz’ “Stay” has been a rotation mainstay (no pun intended) since December. PND and Drake is way different and I like it a lot, but I gotta go with Mickey’s use of the sample more. Speaks to the latter.
02.12.15: It’s great when rumors come true. That was the case today as Drake does indeed drop a surprise new mixtape, not album, on iTunes (it costs money though.) Back with more commentary and an update, but all you need is below.
