"You Only Live Once, That’s the Motto...YOLO"

I can honestly say I've never heard a @drake track like the one below. It's as if he decided to channel The Bay Area by unleashing his inner @e40 or @tooshort or Mac Dre (as he references in the track). I say E-40 because even though I've never been a huge fan of him as a rapper, I've got a ton of respect for the Hip Hop culture he played a huge part in shaping as a reckless, lyrical swaggerninja© (respect the copyright). The way Drizzy and @liltunchi go in on this track remind me of his unabated audacity on the mic, especially with the booty shaking bass brought to you in part by the versatile @producertminus.

I'm happy that this was a (somewhat) OVO sanctioned release and as par for the course, pretty solid body art on the post. As an FYI, YOLO means Y.ou O.nly L.ive O.nce, like the hook says. No need to go all the way to Urban Dictionary, I put it in the title in an attempt to state the obvious. Even though this is slated as an iTunes bonus track, I'd still give it top billing as far as tracks we've heard so far on Take Care.
