Happy Birthday Aubrey. Or as they say in Yiddish, A freilekhn geburtstog! Or something like that. The boy from Toronto turns 27 today. We figured, what better way to celebrate the 27th anniversary of Drake's birth than to reflect on his career-long body of work? From Comeback Season to Nothing Was The Same, we compiled (at least what we think are) the 27 strongest tracks from his catalogue.
i'm going on the record right now as not hating drake's new album Nothing Was The Same. on first listen, dead serious i fell asleep. but i think that had more to do with the fact that i hadn't prepared myself to listen to an r&b album and those joints do a brother like warm cocoa on a wintry night. aubrey's playlist has a similar effect and shouldn't be consumed while operating machinery heavier than an iPhone or a calculator.
He will be on these lists for a long time to come.
Here's some footage of the New Orleans leg of the Club Paradise Tour. Up top is Drizzy running through 'Crew Love,' and down bottom is K. Dot spitting out 'Hii Power.' Shout to BlowHipHopTV for the footage.
