Back in 1997, a young, up and coming rapper seemed like he was on everybody's remix, collabo & posse cut all before his first album dropped. He was the must have MC. That rapper was DMX. And he brought a new energy that had everybody hyped about his debut album. Now in 2010 we have Drake,who has been everywhere since his mixtape "So Far Gone" dropped last year. Since then he has been everywhere singing or rapping on your favorite rapper or R&B artists' song. Now its time for Drake to hold his own with his major label debut, the highly anticipated "Thank Me Later".

This is Drake's official introduction to the music world. No more buzz. No more guest collabo's. This album is all about him. And if you can get past all the hype, he did a pretty good job. Right now, he is not an A+ rapper. He's more average. His raps shine the most when he has a veteran hip hop artist on the track with him. He seems motivated on the Jay-Z-assisted track "Light Up". When Lil' Wayne shows up on "Miss Me", Drake feels like he has to compete. Young Jeezy shows up on the Aaliyah-sampled "Unforgetable", but Drake is singing most of that song. "Up All Night" shows Drake's true rapping potential over the albums hardest beat. And when he gets a chance to shine on his own, he's at his best on "The Resistance" As far as the R&B side of the album, Drake falls short in a lot of ways with the only ones any good being "Find Your Love" & "Shut It Down" ft The-Dream (Even though I had trouble figuring out who was singing which verse)

All the hype around Drake has destroyed his credibility. Its easy to dis mainstream hip hop like we did back in 1990 when MC Hammer was flying across the stage. But how many rappers today would like to sell Hammer records? How many rappers want to have top selling albums?

Alright, Drake's rapid rise to fame is much more warranted than other artists who come out with a monster song and fade away. If this was true, he would have been his plateau last year and he'd be in everyones rear view mirror. Instead, with MAJOR support of young money and other huge names in the biz like Kanye and Jay, he got propelled to the top quick. However, unlike other artists, he had hit after hit after hit! Also, SICK verses like on I'm goin in with weezy, say something, and lets not get it twisted, best I ever had is just one of the illest songs in a hot while. This is very characteristic of pop artists currently. Look at artists like Katy Perry, a couple cookie cutter hit songs and now she's one of the biggest pop stars in the world! Thats how it works now. The problem with hip hop is that its much more difficult to create hit song after hit song when compared to pop music. That being said, Drake has been able to put together catchy versus with a pretty sick flow that makes many of us wanting more. Also, he's different, he's form the burbs, he's educated, he doesn't have the "traditional" hip hop background; I just hope he embraces this and doesn't try to put on a fake show of being thug life, that would be a travesty. Living thug life is not prerequisite for hip hop artists. I have found that this type of lifestyle simply provides anecdotal situations to rap about. Hip hop music is bigger than ever now an it cannot and will not be reserved only for those from the hood.

Let's face it, when you hear "Kush roll, glass full, I prefer the better things.." with your speakers blasting your whole situation gets hyped. Drake sounds great rapping, without questions, he sounds like a coherent less wheezy, weezy, which is a good thing.

I'm not the first to say that i embody hip-hop...but Drake's CD debut's strength is not this album...but all the hype surrounding it.

As a real hip hop fan and musician, I checked this album out for a coupla reasons: one, that I'd been really diggin' the stuff off of Drake's previous mixtapes, and two, to see what all the hype was about. This CD gets two stars in my book. It's like, Drake had put all his hottest music out there BEFORE his label debut! He should have saved most of it for his debut-it would have had a bigger impact. Still, I'll see what his next CD will be like to decide if he is either all hype...or just getting started.

He can thank Eminem for being the 1st huge mainstream rapper to share what was on his mind in that conversational tone. Drake, when he does decide to rap, is fairly adept with flow skills. That being said, he's not a Jay-Z, Biggie, Rakim, or anyone else you'd put in an elite catagory. What he says is not as good as the way he says it. I agree with the reviewer that said "fake southern accent".(It's whats hot right now) but...somehow it dissapears on "Thank Me Now". Drake can thank Ja Rule and 50 Cent for gettin away with singing poorly on hooks. Drake takes this to a whole new level by singing poorly not only hooks but full songs on TML. 2 star deduction. Leave the boy band stuff to Bieber. He can even thank Kid Cudi for making that awful CD of psycho-babble so Drake believes we actually care about his "inner" thoughts. Not that Drake is being too deep, all the raps seem to revolve around the same subject...Drake. The production is good. On par with whats hot today. I would love to hear him with Primo, 9th Wonder, or Pete Rock on the boards. The real issue here is does the release live up to the hype? I cant say it doesnt because he might have 4-5 legitimate hits on the CD. I cant say it does because the hype was so huge it needed to be on par with Supa Dupa Fly, Doggy Style, Slim Shady, Get Rich or Die Tryin and Ready to Die. Thank Me Later doesnt even come close.

No CD/DVD deluxe edition?
There's no CD/DVD version of this available and probably won't be. Drake is already working on his second album.

This album will good, but not a great or a classic one.
I think drake is being smart. He is not gearing for the urban crowd with this album...he is gearing for a more mainstream sound. He is more Kanye West than Jay-Z, but I suspect he will return to his roots. I pre-ordered the album and I look forward to it!
