If you know me, you know I’m not exactly a Drake fan. The people voted, so they get what they asked for. Here is a list of the only music by or featuring Drake that I like.
I’m not gonna get into why I don’t like Drake, we can talk about that another time if you all want. I am a self proclaimed hip-hop scholar and despite my hatred, I can still find some Drake stuff to enjoy.
Honorable Mention: Hotline Bling (Views)
Why isn’t this actually in my list? It’s not Cha Cha. But it’s still pretty good.
Now here are my 5 favorite Drake songs/features in existence.
5. 10 Bands (If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late)
I’m not above recognizing some nice bars on a solid beat. This album is gonna pop up again just wait a few more songs.
4. Both the YG features
This absolutely bumps and I love YG. Drake has a great verse and kills the ghost ride scene in the video too.
This is even better YG, with just as good Drake.
Drake should’ve released a collab tape with YG not Future.
3. Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2 (Nothing Was the Same)
As much as I love YG, the beat to Pound Cake is beyond flawless. While I can link you roughly 3 times it was done better by somebody else, we’re talking about Drake today. The samples are great, Jay is acting like he’s still in his prime here as well, this is a well made track all-around. It’s stuff like this that makes me give Drake’s albums a chance when they drop, but it’s stuff not like this that makes me not give them a second listen,
2. Preach – (If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late)
Couldn’t find this song on YouTube at all, but here it is from Spotify. This is without a doubt my favorite Drake song and the only one I openly appreciate and would be willing to listen to regularly. It’s also the absolute best Party has ever been in his entire career. This song is great, this album isn’t bad.
1. Poetic Justice – Kendrick Lamar feat. Drake
Why would I have to justify this???
Hope you enjoyed my list, sorry if I disappointed, we can have more conversations about Drake or Pound Cake in the future. Stay up to date with us on Twitter and check out our Weekly Waves playlist. Be sure to come back for more posts from the MAC staff throughout the week, thanks for reading!
