Drake Releases “Draft Day” Produced by Boi-1da
Last night Drizzy casually slipped a soundcloud link on his Twitter page, which led fans to his new joint “Draft Day” produced by Boi-1da. In the opening line he shouts out Johnny Football and even has Johnny featured on the cover art. Now, people who follow my twitter seen my rant about how I feel about Drake’s career last night.. However, I promised my Twitter followers that I would listen to the song with an unbiased opinion, and be fair. Besides, part of the problem with Hip Hop culture today is biased bloggers who force their personal opinion down fans throats without fairly reviewing the music.
Not me. But I do plan to Say Somethin’..
Drake has ALWAYS been a dope writer, can dude can sing. He has a full catalog of proof of this.. Nobody can say that Drake can’t rap, and that he can’t sing. Even better, whenever he links up with Boi-1da, we can always expect him to knock it out of the park. Their chemistry always works in Drake’s favor. As my man MeRCY (@MusicByMeRCY) said, their chemistry can be compared to Prodigy (Mobb Deep) and Alchemist’s. His flow on this joint was dope, his delivery was also on point. Even though the beat was kinda laid back and relaxed, Drake’s energy was a notch or two above that, without being too aggressive, it worked perfectly. The song overall is very nice, he doesn’t sing at all, he just raps. But that’s okay, I’m more of a fan of his rapping personally. I think the fans enjoyed it a lot as well, even people who aren’t fans of Drakes had positive responses to the release. As always, I’ve posted the link AND the actual soundcloud player for ya’ll to enjoy. Check out Drake’s new joint “Draft Day” and Say Somethin’ to let us know what you think!
As you all know, I just started writing for Say Somethin’ blog today.. I setup an email for artists to submit music to for review. As you read in my last post, I’m very serious about music.. It takes a special kind of talent to really impress me. No, I WON’T review and post all of the music that hits the inbox, however I will listen to all of it. First Time I listened to MeRCY, I instantly felt like i just heard a new Wu-tang member being introduced to the game. His sound is so raw, and lyrical. He’s obviously been heavily influenced and taught well by the guys who knew what they were doing. MeRCY is an artist out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He has a project, “Predlud3″, which is put together so well that I put it in my personal iTunes library. “Prelud3” features verses from some of hip hop’s underground favorites such as Ali Vegas , Skyzoo, Planet Asia and Tristate. This is just the ‘prelude’ to fulfilling a prestigious trilogy. The Prestige 3 coming soon, According to MeRCY.
I had a chance to talk to MeRCY for a bit and get to know him a little. He’s a real cool dude, really focused on his grind. Go follow his Twitter, (@MusicByMeRCY) and tell him Ace sent you! Also, Go here —> http://mercymuzic.bandcamp.com/album/prelud3 and get your copy of his album! Also, go check out his website www.mercymuzic.bandcamp.com and his youtube channel, www.youtube.com/MercyMuzicTV SUPPORT real hip hop and show this guy some love. I wouldn’t ask you to if I didnt feel like he’s earned it.
