Drake - Nothing Was The Same

As much salt they throw on Drake, you can't deny the fact that is a great artist and his fourth album entitled, Nothing Was The Same, is sure to please your ears with melodic rhymes and harmonic singing. 

At first, I was taken back by his choice for the intro. His prior albums always started off real mellow and then he went to the more hard toward the middle but, on my second listen, I learned to appreciate it. I felt like he needed to do this because a lot of people have been coming for Drake's neck and felt like this was like his redemption song. 

The album overall had a great flow. I love that he kept it true to his ending interludes they remind me of The Dream's album. It makes you appreciate the blood, sweat and tears that is put into production. The only downfall is that I felt like his lyrics were a little mediocre on some of his song. I felt like on Take Care, there was a balance of great lyrics and drake holding his tune but, nevertheless, those tracks were saved by the production. 

Speaking of the production; it was great. Of course you know Noah "40" Shebib is Drake's right hand man when it comes to his sound. It's like Missy with no Timberland, Mariah with no Jermaine Dupri. It just wouldn't be right. Drake collab with other "super" producers such as Boi-1da, T-Minus, Mike Zombie, Hudson Mohawke, The Dream and Mike WiLL Made It; to name a few. 

This is another good album by Drizzy. I see this banging for the rest of this year.
