Lil Wayne’s Master Plan


With tracks off Drake’s soon to be released album, Take Care, already breaching the Billboard Top Ten before the album release we can start to visualize that the YMCMB crew may be passing down the torch. Business strategy, fate, who knows, but Drizzy’s following and musical output can now be put along the same lines as his master, Lil Wayne. As Weezy approaches 30 (now 29), his glamour will no longer contain the same Young Money swagger it once had. We can view this as Drake, now 25, overcoming the natural tale of time, replenishing the YMCMB motto (with counterpart Nicki Minaj, now 28, drawing in the female market). Ultimately, the growing YMCMB business will grant Lil Wayne enough money to live to old age in immense steadily growing wealth. He has accomplished his ultimate goal, and soon Dr. Carter can sit back and hope his Young Money farm team raises another YMCMB star into the majors.  - S.R.

Album Review: Drake – Take Care


I needed to take some time with this album review because as you may know I cover a lot of Drake and personally he is one of my favorite artists. I had been highly anticipating Take Care for months and was hoping for something to top Thank Me Later. Luckily enough the world (and myself) was given one of the more innovative albums in a long time. This is the Drake everyone went crazy over after So Far Gone. This is a sound many artists cannot do. This is a project that Drake put so much effort, emotion, and time into perfecting each and every song. I’m obviously biased toward Drizzy, but did the best I could to be objective. Comments and critiques always welcome. Hit the jump for the review.

After Drake wraps up with the fans, MuchMusic sat down with the Toronto native to get an in depth perspective on Take Care, how far Drake has come, and what the future holds.

Check out the full interview here.

Behind The Scenes: Drake feat. Lil Wayne – The Motto (Video)


A few pics leaked a few days ago of Drizzy shooting his new video for “The Motto” out on Pier 30 in the Bay Area. Tonight DJ Franzen hooks up some footage of the shoot which Drizzy invited E-40 and Mistah F.A.B. to join him in his interesting outfit (and Nike gloves, again). No Weezy for now, video coming soon.

Drake feat. YG, Snoop Dogg, & Nipsey Hussle – The Motto (Remix)


I’m assuming while Drake was out in the Bay shooting the video for this track, he got this remix from these cats. This morning DJ-E Man of Big Boy’s Neighborhood dropped this new remix of Drizzy’s bonus track on Take Care.
