Review ·

You’ve already heard the story, but let’s pause a moment to consider the craziness. A Canadian-born rapper (the best/only since Snow), who until 16 months ago was known for starring in high school soap opera called Degrassi, is releasing this year’s most anticipated album. The hype for this can only be described as nuclear. Eminem, inarguably the biggest pop star of the last 10 years, has an album out next week and a single in the top 10, and I haven’t even heard anyone mention it since it was announced two months ago. Not even radio DJs.  The message is clear: It’s Drake’s world, and we’re all just wasting space.

What’s even more remarkable, in an age when young rappers see their debuts watered down to something unrecognizable (B.o.B) or killed by their major-label handlers (Wale), Aubrey Drake Graham’s debut, Thank Me Later, arrives with the same hard-to-copy style as his 450,000 copy-selling EP, So Far Gone. This is an album full of goose feather-soft synths, sung-rapped vocals and songs about being hated with more Top 10-ready singles per square inch than any rap album in recent memory. It may have all the rap debut signifiers -- features from Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, The-Dream and Jay-Z, production from Timbaland, Swizz Beatz and Kanye -- but instead of those guys imposing their will on Drake, it’s the other way around. For all its faults, Thank Me Later is at least unique to Drake’s vision, something you can’t say about many hip-hop albums any more.

Because of his relatively privileged upbringing (he’s from a wealthy part of Toronto), Thank Me Later is less about chronicling and rising up out of his environment (like basically every rap debut since Illmatic) and more about how Drake is uncomfortable being famous. It takes all of 25 seconds for him to claim, “Money just changed everything/ I wonder how life without it would go.” That sentiment rings pretty false -- dude did help blow up a bidding war for his services, landing a seven-figure deal with Young Money/Universal -- but it’s in this sense that Drake connects with his only obvious stylistic forefather, Kanye West. But where Kanye was a famous producer before he started rapping and wondering whether or not he’d fit in, with Drake, it’s like he only became famous in order to have something to sing about. This is, after all, a guy who worried that men would refuse to acknowledge his music at a time when no one even knew of his music.   

So, if there’s one thing you have to accept with Thank Me Later, it’s that a 23-year-old who has spent his entire life trying to be the best and brightest is now bummed out. Majorly. To the point where he’s paranoid about haters who might “load a clip and shoot.” To the point where he basically pioneers hip-hop for elevators, rhyming most milquetoast over milquetoast beats on “Fireworks” (which features a bored Alicia Keys), the Phil Collins toss-off “Karaoke,” the “I can’t believe my girl left me” yawn of “The Resistance,” the mercifully short “CeCe’s Interlude” and current single, “Find Your Love.”

But here’s the rub: For all those serious clunkers, Drake is still capable of wilding out on hip-pop jams like “Over” (easily his best song yet) and “Miss Me,” which features an energized Lil Wayne. And maybe that’s what the best part of Thank Me Later is: Drake’s ability to pull the best out of the guests around him. He gets one of Swizz Beatz’s better creations in recent years (and a slashing T.I.) with the for-the-ladies jam “Fancy.” He exposes a tender side of Young Jeezy, which is a Herculean task, on “Unforgettable,” getting Jeezy to admit he loves hip-hop like a lover. He trades blown-out lover-man platitudes with The-Dream and gets Kanye to lend the great beat for “Show Me a Good Time.” But most important to the heads in attendance, he awakens the slumbering giant named Jay-Z, who on “Light Up” drops the best bars he’s had in close to a decade. “I’m not as cool with niggas as I once was/ I once was, cool as the Fonz was/ but these bright lights turned me to a monster,” says an uncharacteristically wistful Jay, warning Drake of the travails of fame. It’s a lights-out performance that more than pays back Drake for his work on The Blueprint 3.

Granted, those songs do come with the stuffing of “Up All Night,” a song where Drake and Nicki Minaj trade cringe-worthy lines so hard, you’ll get a concussion (“Famous like a drug/ I’ve taken to much of,” “I look like yes/ you look like no”). But Drake deserves a lot of credit for Thank Me Later; it's one of the few hip-hop albums, ever, really, without much precedence. Its only analogs are a two-year-old Kanye West album (808s and Heartbreak) and a year-old Drake mixtape. Yet somehow this has become this year’s time capsule album; for better or worse this is almost certainly going to be the one that connects with the most people. It’ll also probably ensure that Drake gets at least another two albums' worth of material.

The true pop culture junkie will recognize relative hip-hop newcomer Drake as the wheelchair-bound jock-turned-musician Jimmy Brooks from Degrassi: The Next Generation. These days Drake (ne Aubrey Graham Drake) flips smooth PG-13 rhymes with heavy doses of R&B crooning. After gaining a fair amount of cred on the mix tape circuit and scoring a minor hit with “Replacement Girl,” Drake is set to release his debut on chief patron Lil Wayne’s Young Money label. It’s no picnic for a former teen actor from Canada trying to break it as a baller in the States, of course a put on from Weezy doesn’t hurt. Thank Me Later arrives later in 2009, expect ridiculous guest spots.

OctobersVeryOwn

Man OK yall can get off his nutz now his album didn't live up to the hype Ja Rule albums were harder than this soft shyt drake just put out. That's not all I'm not looking for killing or nothing like that, but he just didn't deliver. His flows were supar for real.

killa tae

Can't wait till the album cums out! Peace Drake

Big J

I should smack whoever compared Drake to Ja Rule. Ur an idiot!!!

ifuckedurmom

My opinion (and as being a “nobody” I might get blasted for this) is that he had no “real” concept in this album; he followed too many slow jams behind up-tempo/hype songs. I was disappointed in some of the features he had on the album as I expected them to be a lot better then they were. Just to give some examples is the Jay Z, Alicia Keys, Dream, and Swizz Beatz. I’m sure many of you can contest that when you read the track listing and saw that they were featured on this album you envisioned some “classic” music and my opinion is that in some of these songs Drake dropped the ball.

Just for the record I’m not a hater of the boy Drake but I’m giving my opinion and trying to give his debut album a fair a rating as possible. My overall rating of this album is a 7/10. Many people might disagree with this saying its easy 8 or 9, or even some people might go in great lengths saying it’s the hottest album released in the past 10 years. I would say listen to the album once more and don’t listen as a fan listen as a critic. This album was not arranged well and the theme or concept behind it was lost to me.

This was a ‘solid” album to say the least but it had potential to be SO MUCH BETTER and although creativity was defiantly present in this album I think Drake can bring it up just ONE more notch and brought his talents to a higher level then what’s present in this album.

the release date was pushed up to June 9.

i'm confused as to why his being half-jewish somehow connects to his relatively privileged upbringing. i mean, yeah, there are certainly affluent jews, but being jewish is not the same thing as being rich. try a little harder to connect those dots next time.

um, what?

What is this soft as a pillow "Mall-Rap"?

yol tripin its june 9
ulbam leaked i have 7 of da 14 songs
yal gonna thank me later

C.M/Y.M

I got the impression from the opening line of this 'book' that this writer wouldn't know hip hop even if it crawled up his ass, had a bachelor party, an after party, an orgy & contracted herpes.

Drake: the best/only rapper out of Canada since Snow? That really shows how much this guy actually knows about hip hop. Oh wait.... he only pays attention to the hip hop played on radio. Right.

Whoever is the administrator of this website: get somebody who is actually knowledgeable about hip hop instead of some random blogger who somehow found a way to pass his nonsense gibberish about Canadian rappers.

By the way, Drake is good but he isn't the first. Look up Kardinal Offishal's Firestarter Volume 1 & any of his albums for some knowledge on Canadian rap

Dappa

I'm pretty sure he's referring to a Canadian rapper breaking through and having this much mainstream appeal. I'll see your Kardinal argument but if we wanna get into it, there are several other good Canadian MCs we could list here, such a k-os, K'naan, Buck 65, Shad, Moka Only, etc...

/site_media/uploads/images/users/Andrew_Martin/me.jpg Andrew_Martin

Exactly, brah. I mean, I really like Cadence Weapon, but it's not like he's even in the same neighborhood as Drake (or Snow for that matter).

/site_media/uploads/images/users/thestorfer/1202393jpeg.jpeg andross

IT STRAIGHT. RESISTANCE IS MY FAVORITE SONG IT COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER

THUFF

Repeated listens brought this up in my books,,, re. the Canadian rapper thing: Drake has set a new precedent for expedited commercial success coming from the north country, anyone who missed that with the Snow comparison is behind.

h0gy

Damnit. This album is growing on me, too.

/site_media/uploads/images/users/Andrew_Martin/me.jpg Andrew_Martin

I'm going to have to say that this album is junk definitely not the best rapper or even close eminem's new recovery album is 100 times better!!!!!!!!!

06EvoIXMREdition

I'm going to have to say that drake is one of the best rappers for how fast he got in the game this cd has the potential to be amazing with the people featured in the songs and that this music varrys greatly and its amazing

kodyb3

This is pretty good, but I'd rather listen to Saukrates any day. Maestro Fresh Wes was waayyy better than snow, lol...

ope

LOL @ Over being his best song, but dissing the first 3 songs...the first 3 songs are the entire reason Drake is great, the so far gone style.. his straightfoward hip hop stuff is not that great at all

Resistance and Karaoke are the best songs...

adam

the album is garbage. his lyrics r weak comparred to eminem's revcovery. buy recovery june 22 when eminem takes over the world again...

drake

Andrew are you kidding Me?? You must not listen to rap, hip hop or know too much of anything with some of the statements you make in your article. Lyrically Drake puts together some of the wittiest and fluid punch lines rap has seen in awhile..."The game needs change and I'm the muthaf**kin cashier" or "A lot of people sayin f**k me problem is they be telling everybody but me, but I always keep a starbucks verse bein brewed too hot please please double cup me". How many rappers have bored us with their simple elementary verses and finally someone with lyrical intelligence comes along and your argument is.........?? What is your argument anyways?

The fact is Drake bring excitement back into the game. Eminem came back 5 years later still with the same style, talking about people, trying to cause drama when that's been played out since Either. Rap is waaaaaaaaayyyyyyy past that. And speaking of Jay-Z, you're saying Jay's verse on "Light it up" is his best in a decade??? What decade have you been in, because in this last one ummmmm he dropped a little album called The Blueprint where every song was a hitter, The Prelude from Kingdom Come...OMG that was probably one of his hottest songs EVER but people that slept on it (sounds like you're one of them) would never know..."The games f**ked up niggas beats is bangin, nigga ya hook would get it, ya lyrics didn't ya gangsta look did it, so I would write it if ya'll could get it, being intricate a getchu would critics"... I can go on!

Please take some time to re-write this. Find Your Love is a Top 5 song to date, The Resistance (If you don't understand that listen to it through someone elses ear, I beg You!!). At this point Drake is like watching a good ass double dutcher while everyone else is just jumping rope

Wiseeyesmind

this is hot cant wait for it to come out definetly a 11 star album

Mark garner

Good review!

Drake's sales will probably go down significantly due to the leak.. Real fans like us however, will buy it twice! Both digitally and hard copy.

Check out what we thought of the album over @

wow.
Drake you are an amazing rapper/singer keep doing what you do.
dont let enyone tell you differnt. Your going to be the next hit !
your not the best looking person but " Dont judge a book by its cover" i leared that a long time ago. It really gets your thru life.
well thats all.
but remeber DONT EVER GIVE UP. you have come far dont through it all away !

; Chelsea<333

Chelsea

The cd sucks... no argument.

annon.

Disappointed... Album was avg at best... id give it a 6/10... Drake's hype is now done...

James

dude this album is good, but you say you cant think of a hip hop album thats this creative in recent years? kid cudis man on the moon BLEW this album out of the water. you didnt even mention him lol. but i def like drake

zach

I'm not going to go into anything just yet, but I've been dying to know, what makes Drake soooo hot 2 alot of u ppl??? I listened to Thank Me Later.... What am I thanking him for??? For half of the album, I coulda swore I was listening 2 the same song for like 10 minutes!! Don't get me wrong, there were like 2 or 3 songs that I could tolerate Thank Me Now was aiight and since I have my chick instincts of course I rock with Fancy, but that's already a single on the radio newayz. His flow sounds the same on EVERYTHING... U can interject ne verse from ne one of his songs and place on another song and it would fit perfectly. And what is his message??? Granted he had a pretty affluent life so he isn't necessarily going to be rappin about project buildings and hollow tips on the ground and make u feel for ne kind of struggle, but his rhymes and metaphors r just basic "the game needs change and I'm the m****rf***king cashier...." Come on, I guess for me real hip hop, real rap evokes some kind of emotion from the listener, Drake just doesn't cut it for me, to call him a rap artist is laughable, pop star suits him alot better, For REAL RAW HIP HOP, just wait for Eminem's Recovery cuz dat album is FIRE!!

yo whatafug dis been in mixtapes beforeeeeee ajj carajooo and i thought he wus gon release new sh*t waste of tiempo... still luv ya DriZzY!!!

LaMamii<3

You, sir, are incorrect. Over is most defintely not his best song yet. If you were a true fan, who had listened and fell in love with the so far gone mixtape as well as his previous ones, you would have connected with the songs like Cece's Interlude. You completely missed the point of those songs. You're only reading the lyrics surface-deep. How dare you assume that he's "bummed out" and how dare you try to refute his so-called "paranoid fears". You don't have any idea on what good hip-hop sounds or qualifies as.

yourwrong

i just can't get into drake, his voice annoys the sh!t out of me; i try to give him a chance but I just dont understand all the hype. he is definitely talented and has some good lyrics but his flow isnt that nice. If you look up his live freestyles (one being westwood, and the other being funk flex i think??) he cant even keep his flow for a minute straight, wale and kid cudi (who many would say are not on drakes level) went on westwood and killed it in there freestyles. In my opinion being able to flow well is almost something innate, it should come naturally. I feel like drake is almost forcing himself to be a rapper as if he has nothing better to do.

scott

This album was ok for his first try, but let's be real here, this album was pretty disappointing. Basically, the only good songs are the singles, the rest are filler.

I was really anticipating this album.

Eminem's Recovery, on the other hand, absolutely destroys this album lyrically. Thank Me Later lacked a concept, whereas Recovery had a purpose, and the album seems more complete.

I think by Drake's 3rd album he'll straighten out. But this album was meh.

Dave

OMG ! I Love Drakes Music & Face LOOL Hes A Good Rapper ! :D

Eliona'Rrukaj

First off a good album has to have a good flow. The first thing I found about 'Thank Me Later is that the tracks are miss placed. I found it odd that he would start the album off with 'Fireworks', then switch to "Karaoke", have 'Over' as his fourth track and so on. Second, I think everyone is hitting the nail on the head, Drake sounds the same on every track. Don't get me wrong, his flow is good and his punch lines are tight, but Jeez Drake, can you rap from anywhere else but your nasal? Now, his singing is kinda weak. I guess its the thing now to not quite have a good voice, but if you sing from the heart everyone will give you 'A' for effort and dig your style. I don't know about you but 'Thank Me Later' should have had some of the earlier tracks leaked, like 'July'. I was anticipating this album, now I'm wondering if I was a sucker for this media blitz called 'Drake'.

Drake is a great Artist hope to hear sum more hot stuff from him. And tha album is FIRE!!!!!

Donte Aka D.T

Garbage...this album shouldn't be considered hip hop. It should have been next to an R.Kelly CD. Drake is a great artist but shouldn't be considered the next best hip hop artist. What's going on with music when we consider this CD the most anticipated hip hop album of 2010?

mikel

Aubrey Drake Graham aka Drake is the best. His music is on fire and I love him. But all I have to say he should be crowned next best hip hop artist. And to all the HATERS QUIT THE HATERADE. : -) Thank me later is the best album of Drake's.

Miracle aka meemee

Drake Is That Flame.

This album is amazing, I can't stop listening to it! Drake is an amazing artist and it's great that every track tells a story so we can really get to know him as a person, just like us. GREAT CD, highly recomended!

First off, f**k all you haters. Drake is a f**king genius. Jay Zs verse on this album sucks ass, Kingdom Come album f***ing rocked! Eminem is great sure, but hes not on the same level as Drake. Drake is a mad lyricist. His rhymes are all instant classics. If all these songs sound the same to you, stop hearing it and f***ing LISTEN. Dont say his s**t sucks because youre not paying attention. Take the dick out of your ears and f**ing hear him. The depth of his metaphors, vocabulary, delivery, are all spec-f***ing-tacular. Drake is not gangsta. Drake is a rapper, one of if not, the best. Hes hard, but soft. Thats a real mother f***er. F**k all the haters. Ive been beatin Drake since been beatin Drake, ya heard? I aint dick riding, just giving him whats due. This man is a f***ing monster. Name someone better, Ill f***ing spit his or her name back in your f**ng face. F** yall, Im outtie.

Drake is one of the worst rappers I have ever heard. His voice makes me want to punch infants! God he sucks! Most rappers these days suck. No talent! How is it so many people these days can put out an album and be so horrible!? And all you people buy in!! It's like the blind leading the blind....

B money

drake is da hottest thing in da musis industry andyoung money and i love his new album

To "B Money"
Just because you don't like an album doesnt mean its not good.
Obviously Drake has alot of fans, including myself.
Music is a matter of opinion. It's not right or wrong like a math problem.
