Drake – You Know You Know (Produced By Kanye West)

(I haven't heard 'Thank Me Later' yet) but apparently this track didn't make the cut. Not the usual Kanye beat, but I like, its grew on me.

Drake - Replacement Girl (@ItsTheTay REMIX)

Drake x The Tay - Replacement Girl's 8 Bit Orchestra

I really like this remix, mainly because I love 99% of Drake's Discography, and Replacement Girl was that 1% I would skip over.

Now The Tay brought a fresh light to this track, and the beat is bumping.

@ItsTheTay: aka The Tay, is 1/6 of the ATL blog crew Dormtainment.com plus a music producer with a love of blending that 8bit nintendo sound into his mixes.

"Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it's not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won't. it's whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere." 
- Barack Obama
After the Jump, interview with the director Jake Davis on making this video.

Featuring Drake - Every Girl - Music Video

..Oh I think Lil Wayne has something to do with this track, ahh maybe.

Drake is my favorite rapper of the moment, and if I am right this is his first music video appearance.  He drops in @ 1:25 with the nickname Drizzy.

I am still confused with the floating graphics, I sense they were influenced by SO-ME's graphics for Kid Cudi's Day N Nite video, but didn't grasp how to effectly do it.  Plus why did they have to name drop "Jimmy" while Drake is rapping.  Come on, Son been on Degrassi for 1/2 his life, he gets enough of it in the interviews, why bringing it into the videos.  I officially put my stamp of approval with Drake being a serious rap contender.

Oh yeah, the beat is catchy, I got it jamming in my head, you should Google for the dirty version, because some of the missing words messes with the dynamics and feel of the song.

Drake interviewed by Eighty81


It was a pretty good interview, I like to hear what influences Drake and it cool to see how much respect he has for lot people that currently big in the game.  I got respect for Kanye and Andre 3000, but you never sit back and think in 20 or 30 years these guys are going be the "Marvin Gaye","Michael Jackson" and "Paul McCarthney" of their time and genre. 

 Note to Eighty81, please start putting instrumentals instead the actual song, it gets hard deciphering the interview from the rap.
