One of the best albums if the year.

I own all of Drake's albums and I like his other albums, I love this album.
The album gets better with each listen, like most great albums.

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

Aubrey Drake Graham, also known as Drake, is a hip hop artist known all around the world. He has sold out albums and concert tickets at every show for a few years now. You may know him as the “Hold on We’re Going Home” artist or you may have known him since he was the teen character in the hit show Degrassi. Either way, his accomplishments are highly recognized and there is no stopping his fame anytime soon.
His latest album “Nothing was the Same” is believed to be one of the greatest albums ever put on the charts. He incorporates hip hop as well as R&B in this album. He is greatly appreciated by his use of many underground artists. This album includes Jhene Aiko, Detail, Sampha and many other underground artists as well as well-known artists such as Jay-Z, Big Sean, and Miguel. Every song is catchy, fun, and may give you the courage to work things out with an ex-lover.
His songs vary in emotions and subjects from love to money to making it in the industry. A few songs make you feel on top of the world. He raps about money, cars, and everything that comes with a lavish life. On the other hand, a few songs deep into the album may have you crying as he talks about not being able to find true love or wanting to change for a past lover.
I loved this album because of the use of metaphors and pure poetry. His words are amazing and you can’t find anyone like Drake. On the other hand I felt as if he exaggerated in a particular song. “Started from the Bottom” is where he talks about the “come-up.” How he came from nothing and became something more than he could ever imagine. Anyone who knows Drake’s story will tell you that he in fact did not start from the bottom. He was a well off Jewish child from the suburbs.
