The single is titled ”Mama I made It”, which i think speaks alot for the rapper from where he has been and what he has been achieving in the rap game. The album title which he has been building a massive hype, will go by the title ”Refiloe”.

Drake: ”If you reading this, its too late” album

So while Drake has been in the media alot lately, for a whole bunch of reasons in which some was good and others not at all. He was secretively working on a full 17 track album mixtape, which in saying has more tracks than his ”Nothing was the same” album. The album went by the title ”If you reading this, it’s too late”.

Drake released the album over a tweet and than saw the album being dropped in iTunes on Thursday the 12 February. The full 17 tracks show a variety of big name producers which we have seen in other albums which was nothing short than banger beats. Producers such as Boi-1da, PartyNextDoor, Travis Scott and Wondagirl all add the killer beats to allow Drake to release a top-quality album. The album had been trendy on twitter all weekend with comments of appreciation, surprise, respect, love and hate.

What are your thoughts of the album? Let us know what you think and if you were ever ready.

The album which has already topped charts world-wide (and it has not even been a week) with reaching number 1 spots and is also projected to sell over 500 000 copies over the weekend alone.

J Cole: 2014 Forest Hill Drive

J Cole has always had a playlist on my iPod, whether it was his first album back in 2011 with ”Cole World: The Sideline Story” or ”Born Sinner” which was released in 2013. The American hip-hop rapper latest album to his list was ”2014 Forest Hill Drive” which was for sure added to my playlist not a minute after the album was available for download on the net.

The album which sees no special appearance or guest artist, but sees a full 13 track album with Cole jamming behind the mic. He didn’t do all of this on his own, with helps from producers such as Cardiak, Vinylz, Phonix Beats, Willie B and of course Cole himself. I might not be able to say that thus is by far his best album, but it will definitely be staying on my iPod on repeat for some time to come. The album is still available for download on itunes.
