The high fashion, multiple vacay locations, and thick sex preferences/references makes a nice release off of God Forgives, I Don’t. (Shouts to you who have the whole album, I’m ducking the leak gawds. Next Tuesday it officially releases) Ennywehdoe (anyway though), the concept of the song steams from Rozay’s doctor orders given last year for his seizures.
“When I got out of the hospital — you know, I had a seizure last year — when I was leaving, the doctor told me,‘You gotta eat some more fruit, drink you some water, eat fruit and just relax for a little while.’ My fruit of choice was pineapples. For the next three weeks, I woke up every morning and ate diced pineapples, and I put the concept together. Drizzy came in, as well as Wale, and it’s kinda like, ‘She could be my diced pineapple. This special lady, she could be what I wake up to every morning and help me get by every day.”
And like that, we have a track that embodies this sensual, but rock-to-it sound. Wale’s poetry over the piano definitely set the tone for the whole thing as well as his approach on devouring his pineapple in his poetic, climbing flow. Ross still spitting his “funer things” rap to these beautiful woman and it always works for this guy. Then.. there’s Drake. Ha! Yes it’s only a hook, but Aubrey just does … this. Velvet voice verbalizing what we all have lived/live. Real regular with this guy.
I appreciate the versatility in Ross, Drake, and Wale; they know the balance in making music for all listeners. (“And how the women be the tastemakers for the shit we makin”- Kendrick Lamar) Balance. Learn it if you don’t know.
“Call me crazy, shit at least you cawwlin.”
Well damn, JoJo. Maybe a week ago I was singing Leave (Get Out) with @StefLove_ and we were saying how JoJo had the tunes. From pop and AIM chat away messages, JoJo and OVO’s 40, colab to make a really adult sultry and seducing track for JoJo’s third album, Jumping Trains. Very R&B. A Ciara, Kelly Rowland, Mya type of feel, but that’s just soulful JoJo. Definitely something to throw into your sexy time playlist.
Here we go again, huh? So It clearly took me a while to actually sit and take in wtf is going on with whatever is going on. First the speculation was Young Money, but as I listened intently myself, Drake, Wayne, and Young Chop were sub-mentioned.
I love Drake, everyone knows this,but the way Pusha T lyrically ripped into him and the other two was pretty intense. I don’t think he was really getting at them, but he definitely let them know about their individual lives.
“Contract all fucked/Explain up I guess that means you all fucked up/You signed to one niggas that signed to another niggas that’s signed to three niggas / Now that’s bad luck.” -Welp.
“F*ck you playin’ games fou? Don’t be scared, get everything you came fou/They got you talkin’ that big shit, little do you know, we don’t miss shit/ Them n*ggas usin’ you as a pawn, you see they never loaded they guns. Now you out here all by yo’self, ask Steve Jobs wealth don’t buy health, yeeeahh.” – Yeah…. this tied it all up pretty much.
“Throwin’ that flag up, runnin ‘roun’, you hot shit. Takin half of everything you get.” Wayne. Exposed.
Pusha even had it for Young Chop (Original producer for Chief Keef’s “I Dont Like” record who had much to say about Ye altering the beat.)
“You can keep your beats, n*gga, we much rather share your b*tch n*gga. B*tch n*gga.” -Respect it.
The-Dream’s “Them n*ggas ain’t down fuh yuh” hook just makes you have so much pity for these 3 dudes.
I can get into so much with this topic, but you may not want to read mad much so I will keep it as simple as I can.
It does annoy me that Drake be riding YM crazy, mainly because every time someone comes at YM he feels he has to be that front soldier. Yes I get that that is the label you are signed to, but YM is shitty and I’m sure the money/business is shady looking at the membership list growing every other month. Keep your loyalty to OVO(XO) and don’t let anyone put ANY batteries in your back including the -he said she said- and “G.O.O.D aint good enough/ya hood ain’t hood enough” because this record felt really legit. (Feeling that this track was a real ass diss track, then again, it’s Pusha T.)
And the verse itself, Exodus 23:1, “Do not spread false reports. Do not help a wicked man by being a malicious witness” I interpret it as, do not spread false information just to help someone in the wrong make a point. Seems to all fall in line to me.
And it’s clear people are in their feelings because Wayne was Lawry’s going on twitter saying, “fuk pusha t and anybody that love em.” To me, Wayne told us Pusha was talkin’ the gospel. But what if there are Pusha T and Wayne fans… so you really walked through and said “f*ck airybody?” Whatever dawgs. Wayne said he was a made man and how he should dust something, but Jay explained, “made men ain’t suppose to make statements.” Hmm.. I’ll go with the guy who’s more Frank Lucas than Ludacris.
Ennywehdoe, shouts to Manny Fresh on the production of Cruel Summer (oh yah! ) and in the words of that pretty muhfudger, “rap game f*ck up boheeyy. F*ck you think I rap fo’?
I hate that I have been slacking (blame my procrastination of work and trying to get this degree in some weeks). However, I’m here! And I will be blogging this whole time at the station. BBQ’s was just ordered so I’m fake chillin’ right now.
A quick update:
World is still turning though…
I say all of that to say this, forgive me. Thank you for your patience. Respect.
Being that I fake stalk ChampagnePapi‘s Instagram, I seen pictures from this video. At first I was like, “Is he really actin’ out in the synagogue?” He was indeed, but it wasn’t a real service. (whew) Though some people felt this was blasphemy, this was Drizzy‘s best video to date (shouts to Lil X!). A visual of how his second Bar Mizvah would be, the video opened with an exclusive clip Ms. Sandy had sitting in the vault, of young Aubrey at a Bar Mitvah hittin’ the cutest two step and snap I’ve ever seen. Team OVO was in full attendance as well as Khaled, Baby, and of course panda Wayne. Let us not forget the sexy and Drake’s bestie, Trey Songz, guzzling that Patron like a true daredevil. Ha! I could never. Ennywehdoe, Drake having the top hip-hop video right now? Hell Yeah F*cking Right.

“…and show up in a Margiela tux, I dont really give a f*ck and we only getting older.”
And with age, Margiela and any tux for that matter fits pretty well on Drake. GQ made history by featuring October’s very own in their first style issue for April. Jim Moore‘s fashion sense and Drizzy’s poise (and build) were a custom fit.
Drake speaks about his wardrobe slip ups in the pass and with the black is always a staple, but the suits/business casual look is perfecto.
I would just like to add: all of the haters who come at Drake’s style and features, take a close look at this video. Those eyebrows were threaded by your best Middle Eastern shorty, salutes to his barber, and that skin… Man listen, Aubrey is a gift all together; a tailored package and GQ represented this all so well.
Oh and Drake… you really don’t have to go to those dates without me…
I’m just saying.
