Drake posted another new song to his OVO website overnight, and despite its title "All Me," he gets a big bump from its guests: Big Sean, 2 Chainz and a bit from Aziz Ansari.
The latter appears only in a sampled quote from the comedian's "Funny People," as rap-inspired Randy, the stand-up with a DJ. "These bitches gotta start paying me for this, can't get no more free Randy," is the line. It's something simultaneously so quotable and yet obviously satire.
There's an element to Drake (and, at times, his cohorts) that toys with the absurdity, of the Lifestyle, the brags, the bravado and, of course, the money. Drake's last album "Take Care" cast Good Drake and Bad Drake together, often in the same verse, and like an alter-ego gabbing all over his most vulnerable self. Or is it vice-versa?
On "All Me" -- which moves smoothly over church bells, clanks, a music box, video game bomb noises, the constant brrr of bass and a dark, dirging voice -- there's a continuation of Drake at his most divisive, and correspondingly, his most absurd. Big Sean and 2 Chainz follow suit. The result are some good, bad and funny lines, check them out below.
