Mainstream Plays | Colin Munroe feat . Drake | Cannonball
Let me start by saying I have always been a Drake fan. From the newspaper and yearbook days when fellow hip hop head Bryant Stewart and I would check out his myspace page with his first mixtape release, I have always been a fan of his delivery and his staying true to his artistry (in my opinion, Drake is now known as a “simp” artist in some respects. Ex: “Don’t drink and Drake” or having songs sent as melancholy odes to past loves. However, ever since the drop of “Brand New” and other close resembling tracks, we have always known he wanted to make the move to R&B along with rap). I find it intruiging that some of his music can be considered throwback at this point, with as many hit records under his belt now.
Closing said ramble, this has always been one of my favorite Drake joints. I may go into my thoughts on his latest work, “Nothing Was The Same” should time allow, it, but for now, headphones on, world, off.
Of course there are a multitude of reasons behind that. I think I will go ahead and bring some of my random insights back over the next few weeks. Debating creating a wordpress page in the meantime, stay tuned family.
