Previously On Ready To Die Drake
Before Drake released “Ready to Die”, he released “Sucker”, which would be the album’s first single. The single was a hit for him and was certified 6x Platinum by the RIAA. It was a big hit in East Coast hip-hop and was ranked by many critics as one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time. It was also ranked 22nd in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
Drake’s ability convey cockiness in an aural way is what makes “Sucker” so appealing to the ear. He starts the verse with an overly corny boast, but gets cockier as the song progresses. Although his lyrics are often insensitive and corny, Drake’s delivery is charming and cocky. The chorus hook is catchy, memorable, and his delivery is a delight to listeners.
Drake isn’t exactly known for being funny, but there are moments when his grouchiness can be humorous. On “Nothing Was the Same,” he riffs about going to the Cheesecake Factory and borrowing a girl’s Bentley. “She’s a jerk,” he chides her in a way that makes her realize he has toxic daddy issues. The song’s high-speed beat is unusually beautiful.
“Previously on Ready to Die” has been one of Drake’s most popular singles. While it may sound cliche, the lyric is a great message for all women. It conveys the idea that being grounded and having ambition is key to success, even in the face of adversity. Drake is not willing to give up, no matter how difficult or rough. He won’t stop until he dies.
Another song with Jay-Z that’s a standout is “Love All,” which begins with an intro reminiscent of the rap cliche “Life After Death.” The beat is simple, but it works well as a background beat. The chorus, “People Never Care,” is an observation about the rap culture. Many in the rap world tear each other down before appreciating them. In this context, “Love All” might be a glimpse into Drake’s future.
As the king of the charts, Drake continues to prove that he has the talent to conquer the streaming services. His latest album, ‘CLB’, has smashed Drake’s record on Spotify. The album was a huge success, but Drake fans wanted something more concise and focused. With the release of his new album, fans have a new hope of catching up with Drake. Drake’s popularity may be declining as he reaches new milestones, but “Ready to Die”, Drake’s best album, is still his best.
