Lupe is making the most of the rap’s publicity wars by dismantling popular beats and inserting himself into the conversation with symbolic lyrics about how weak the game is.

(Hilarious that he keeps naming these songs sequels to his earlier work when they have nothing to do with that at all.)

Artist: Drake Album: Nothing Was The Same Label: Cash Money Records Release Date: September 24, 2013 It’s lonely at the top. “No new friends.” “Versace, Versace”. “Y.O.L.O.” Over the past six months, Drake’s music has been nonstop fuel for memes and Instagram hashtags, so it makes sense that he’d rather spend some time by himself than participate in a culture he’s largely contributed to.
