Its been close to two years since Drakes last album, Take Care. Nothing Was The Same follows the same path. Drizzy is out to up the ante this time around. Right out the gate, Whitney Houston's classic "I Have Nothing" gets flipped and reversed on "Tuscan Leather" as Drake drops three dope verses. The six minute intro has him detailing the fallout he had with Nicki (Not even talkin' to Nicki, communication is breakin' I dropped the ball on some personal s***, I need to embrace it) and these hot for the moment rappers (I'm tired of hearin' 'bout who you checkin' for now Just give it time, we'll see who's still around a decade from now). Then he uses that "versace" flow on "The Language", and even though Birdman tried to deny it, Drake is obviously responding to Kendrick Lamars "Control" verse. Check out some quotes from the song (F*** any n**** that's talkin' that s*** just to get a reaction), ( I got to kill off the weak s*** that's got all you n***** excited) and (Talking that s*** with your back to me, just know it always get back to me). If yall think otherwise, please let me know. But I can read between the lines.

Drake slows the tempo down on the piano laced "From Time". Jhené Aikos hook complements the beat very well. In the second verse, he admits to messing things up with his girl (Girl I felt like we had it all planned out, I guess I f***** up the vision Learnin' the true consequences of my selfish decisions). "Wu-Tang Forever", which should of been called "It's Yourz" transitions into "Own It". Supposedly a remix with the WU will be coming out soon. Certain members confirmed it. The poppish "Hold On, We're Going Home" featuring Majid Jordan is a good second single.

First off, I listen to all genres of music. But I only purchase hip hop albums if they are truly good. I remember when Drake went from being a Degrassi character to a so called rapper. Many thought he was gonna be a Nickelodeon type rapper that wouldn't be taken seriously at first. How often does an actor become a successful rapper? Well his debut album "Thank Me Later" proved many wrong. It was one of the best rap albums of 2010. His sing-rap style isn't original, but he makes it sound so new and fresh. His voice is a trademark now. Then he released the highly anticipated "Take Care", which was a step up from his debut, but kept the same vibe thanks to continued help from producer "40". That album was great, but I admit I got a little tired of some of the songs. After the very good "Take Care" it was debatable whether this was Drakes peak or just the beginning of a long career. "Nothing Was The Same" is the answer. This might be Drakes new peak. Not only is he the biggest rapper not named "Eminem" or "Kanye West", but he is very introspective in his lyrics. The long awaited album was well worth the wait. Here is a track by track review.

1. Tuscan Leather: The album starts up with a Kanye/Passion Pit type sample of Whitney Houston. There is no real hook or chorus. This is pure rapping for nearly 6 minutes. But it still sounds radio friendly at the same time as stated in the lyrics. The song picks up the beat more 2 minutes in turning into a club track. Then it comes back to down tempo toward the end relaxing you then fading out with a sample of "When Seasons Change". Perfect song to listen to while driving around a city like Miami! This is one of my favorite Drake songs. 10/10

Where do I begin. If there is one thing that I am glad that I bought this year it is this album. Drake did amazing on it,. I love every song and listen to it in my car all of the time. This is a MUST BUY. The only problem with my copy was that the case arrived cracked (it was still wrapped), but that did not effect the actual cd itself.

You know when an artist has that crossroads breakthrough single when it haunts you for days on end. It seemed everywhere I turned the hook, "I got my eyes on you......you're a good girl and you know it" was being played. Riding down the 101N to Russian River, stopping in at the nearest fast food joint or shopping in a favorite boutique, the song was pervasive.
The initial hype on the arrival of Drake did not intrude on my world.
But finally this great hip hop singer/rapper born on United Nation's Day, "Started From the Bottom" as the first smash single from his third album tells another hypnotic autobiography. The beats are totally fresh and signal one of 2013's finest works.
Engaged with my favorite new artist of 2013, Jhene Aiko to the master, Jay Z, it isn't just the guest stars that makes this such a great album......its the originality of it all.
The smash, "Hold On (We're Going Home)" introduces his production team find, Majid Jordan, possibly the first middle eastern artists to impact global charts.
(The one negative is Drake's heavy use of the "n" word that can admittedly be infectious....but, at the end of the day, the biracial Canadian superstar does not need it for "street cred").
