Have I heard this track before or is Drake just a tad repetitive? I am never really sure listening to this album. I could have sworn I heard that Asian girls line elsewhere. And all the talk about “success, and people not believing in him, but we going to make it”, makes me want rappers to read less Tim Robbins and talk more about crack. Having said all that there are some moments on this album I’m really loving. I haven’t liked Drake’s really wet stuff before, but here it is a little more moody and ‘Weeknd-esk’. Think I might need to spend a little more time with this record. Look out for it’s official release November 15.
Listen: Drake – HYFR (Hell Ya Fuckin’ Right) ft Lil Wayne
I had a bit of a love hate relationship with the band. Bombs Over Baghdad for instances – not necessary. I just want to hear that kicking, crisp electronic production rather than a wall of noise through which it was sometimes difficult to make out the song. However, on the other hand, Spottieottiedopalicious played with the help of two horn players in matching green Adidas tracksuits – stooooopid fresh to the power of infinity plus one.
Oh did anybody see that hoochie doing her stripper dance between the horn players? Oh dear! Maybe it would work in a place where folks weren’t so rhythmically challenged, but it just seems awkward when they invite the girls on stage in an attempt to turn the encore into the after party.
Nitpicking aside, Big Boi has hits for days, and delivers them with an amazing energy and flow. He played his part of all the Outkast hits as early as ‘Southernplayalisticcadiallacmusic’ taking us through to his more recent ‘Sir Luscious Left Foot’ solo jams. What more can I say? Dude can really rap, and it is just bumping party music.
In addition, Theophilus London was fun. Bringing a little bit of that Andre 3000 element to the tour.
Oh and big ups to Thundamentals who almost got kicked off the tour for stealing chicken backstage. Apparently Big Boi has two tonnes of chicken wings in his rider in every variety from Buffalo Wings to Honey Mustard Wings.

Brrr! Brrr! Brrr! Put your hands up. Feel those horns. It is the Young Money remix of Kanye’s ‘All Of The Lights’ with Weezy, Drake and Big Sean. The original is so massive, but some how this remix is not nearly as killer as it should be. Please insert Nicki Minaj. Thoughts?
