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.

It been a weird trip for Drake, as by the time of the release of Drake's first full-length album, the Canadian rapper was already a star. Therefore Thank Me Later needs to lives up to the hype and it does to a degree but not enough. Thanks to the rich and nuanced production and Drake's thoughtful, playful, and intense lyrics, Thank Me Later is a friendly, chart-topping collection of singles but also a serious examination of Drake's life that holds up as an album. However, Drake is not the hip-hop savior he was hyped to be. Instead, he flows through what should have been his energetic coming-out party, he comes off as a weird kid, missing the days when he was 19 and it was just about him and his girlfriend. Memo to Drake the days of being Jimmy from Degrassi are over.

The record mostly finds the rapper conflicted about his growing stardom and fame. He continues to splits the difference between rapping and singing, his quite serviceable voice occasionally distorted and made to sound better due to auto tune. I was really looking forward to this album since Drake had not put out a bad record since he came out but this "Thank Me Later" album is decent not good. I am disappointed, as he does not sound good on songs by himself as he only shines on features. He reminds me of Nate Dogg because he kills hooks and puts out good music with other people but he just sounds like something is missing on this album when he is solo.

So in the end if you're an huge Drake fan your going to pick this album regardless of what I think. However if your on the fence just download it from LimeWare. It is not worth paying full price.
