IT JUST SEEMED LIKE SOMETHING WAS MISSING OFF THIS ALBUM/PLAYLIST…
- Finally, the long awaited
albumplaylist, More Life is here! Drake took 1,000 years to release this freaking project, meanwhile, Drake fans were dying from anticipation. I’ve currently been vibing out to his playlist for the past few days. I have yet to come up with a definite opinion on it other than, “It’s coo”. I’m also not the biggest die hard fan of Drake. His music is always just…cool to me. Nothing more, nothing less. Drake does this effortless approach to his which is ok until all your music has the same effortless sound. Then his music begins to sound melodic and mediocre. That’s actually the description I’m looking for concerning the More Life playlist–melodic and mediocre. I can just feel all the Drake fans scolding this post with their eyes, but hey, it could’ve been worse. I will make the disclaimer that I have only listened through the playlist about three times, so there’s a 25% possibility that my opinion may change.
Did I lose you? Hope not!
On to what this post was originally about–More Life. What I can appreciate about Drake is that instead of clinging on to this rapper troll hype, dissing other rappers, he stuck to featuring new artists. He spotlighted U.K. rapper Giggs and singer Jorja Smith on “No Long Talk” and “KMT” (Giggs), and “Jorja Interlude” ‘(Jorja). Drake also listed South African DJ/producer Black Coffee as a feature on “Get it Together”. Drake also has the usual suspects for a feature including Quavo, Travis Scott, 2 Chainz, PARTYNEXTDOOR, and Young Thug, but who do you think was missing from this project? In my opinion, I was anticipating artists like Rick Ross, J.Cole, Future, or maybe even a whole verse from Weezy. It’s interesting that they made no guest surprises. Or maybe that’s why Drake put the emphasis on the project being a “playlist” and not an album. I doubt if legends like Jay-Z would want to be featured on a “playlist”.
But anywho—THECARTER wants to know who you think Drake should have featured on the More Life playlist?
