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?

Continuing to demonstrate the widespread effect hip hop has gained globally, Drake is the first international hip hop artist. He has a much more impressive pedigree once you peel back a layer or two. Not only does he write and co-produce a lot of his own material, he has just as much validity as a singer.....as he has with his flow.
Proud to say he and I share similar birth rites which may explain his global appeal.
He arrived on the scene with a lot of hype that he has already lived up to.

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.

After seeing Drake on SNL, I had to check out some of his material. I found this album in MP3 discounted and downloaded it. I haven't stopped playing it since I'd acquired it and plan to pick up more of his stuff.

Before this, I was not really a hip-hop fan. I listened to a lot of Disturbed, Three Days Grace, Linkin Park (still a favorite today), Evanascence, Seether, Staind, it goes on and on... It wasn't until I came across this gem when I really took a 180 degree turn on the music I listen to. Writing this now, 5 years after its release, I look back and have no regrets with this album. This is where I really started with Drake (I heard some tracks from So Far Gone amid the hype, but never got into rap in general until I heard this). I fell in love with the sound. By the end of this thing, I knew Drake wasn't a one hit wonder. This was the beginning of a legacy, a true legend of hip-hop. People will say whatever about Drake (not starting from the bottom, sounding corny, you name it), but this man is a true artist amid a sea of mediocre rappers nowadays. Today in 2015, as I write this review, Drake is very well known, ruling the Internet as we all await his highly anticipated project, Views From the 6. This project, for me personally, was where it all started. It may not be as highly regarded as his other projects, but for me it's something special; every track on this thing is great. Thank Me Later is just as much a classic as Take Care, Nothing Was the Same, and most recently, If You're Reading This It's Too Late. He continues to evolve his sound in every project, only getting better and better. Trust me when I say this, twenty years from now people will be talking about Drake just like they talk about Eminem, Kanye, Jay, Pac, etc. Five years ago, many wouldn't have predicted this. Nowadays though, it seems like with every project, Drake is just elevating to a higher level. Do yourself a favor and listen to this album. I can only hope it opens you up to a whole new perspective on music as it did for me back in 2010 when I first sat down to listen to it.
