Drake-Started From The Bottom

_STR8556
This is the first single off of my upcoming album. I feel sometimes that people don’t have enough information about my beginnings and therefore they make up a life story for me that isn’t consistent with actual events.

I’m not this guy’s biggest fan, but when he gets it right, I’ve got no problems saying so. Unfortunately for us all, this sounds like pop rap gone very, very wrong. What baffles me is that he’s surely played this song back to himself, and thought ‘yeah, this is fine for public consumption’, when the only way to describe it is nursery rhyme rap. His flows are structured like a kids TV theme tune, and whilst in isolation the soft synths and solid percussion are a good backdrop, when combined with his nasal half-rap half-singing delivery, the track comes off as a rejected Future song. It doesn’t help that it doesn’t play out as a single, more as a track that never really goes anywhere, and just sort of floats around in a monotonous back and forth. One of the worst songs I’ve heard him release, and I hope he’s got something better lined up to follow. Stream below, download here.
