And that´s how you celebrate your birthday with your fans and crew…
In yesterdays episode of OVO Sound Radio, episode basically celebrating Drake´s birthday, he announced a new project titled “More Life” which will be released in December.
What do we now about this project?
The Toronto rapper suggests that it´ll be more like a mixtape than an album, he specifically used the word “playlist” to describe the project and called it a “soundtrack to your life”. Here´s the full description:
“I’m off like mixtapes, I want to do a playlist. I want to give you a collection of songs that become the soundtrack to your life, so this More Life: The Playlist. Like I said, dropping in December. All original music from me. You might hear some tunes from the family on there. Just really excited.“
The cause of the name “More Life” could be, and probably is, the death of Alton Sterling, which Drake address with a letter that said “It’s impossible to ignore that the relationship between black and brown communities and law enforcement remains as strained as it was decades ago. No one begins their life as a hashtag. Yet the trend of being reduced to one continues” and signed with the words “More Life”.
It´s confirmed that More Life will included only new and original material from him and his team. The songs from the project he released yesterday were: “Two Birds, One Stone” , “Sneakin”’ feat. 21 Savage and “Fake Love”, finally he also debuted a remix to the song “Wanna Know” original of London rapper Dave for his debut EP Six Paths.
Rap Fact: in the track “Two Birds One Stone” Drake appears to address Kid Cudi and Pusha-T on this song, recently both rappers publically have display “not much love” for Champagne Papi…
Quote to remember: For Cudi “You were the man on the moon, now you just go through your phases, life of the angry and famous”
Quote to remember: For Pusha-T “You made a couple chops and now you think you Chapo, if you ask me though you ain´t lining the trunk with kilos, you bagging weed watching Pacino with all your niggas, like “this what we need to be on”, but yo never went live”
