"Yeah, This Ish Belong to Nobody, It's Yours"

When you've established a specific sound as an artist that people like, you set the bar high for yourself. That being said, I'm elated that Drake let loose a single with his home squeeze 40. In my eyes Noah Shebib is just as responsible for his meteoric rise, producing a smooth piano instrumental for Drake to go in on.

I wouldn't call it one of my favorite Drake tracks, but I really like it because Wu Tang Forever leans on his uncanny ability to switch gears between R&B and Hip Hop at the drop of a beat. His flow is methodical, mixing tempos until the 1:34 mark where he channels his inner Shaolin diction. It's a different angle for a Drake single, but a good one in my eyes. I'm betting the critics will have a field day with the song title because it is named after one of Wu-Tang's best albums, but it's one of his quasi love songs. We'll see how this fits into the bigger puzzle of Nothing Was the Same when it drops in a little less than two weeks...#WuTangForever
