Thank Me Later

Thank Me Later by Drake is one of the most anticipated rap albums of 2010..

Fans, lovers, and critics of Drake were anxiously waiting for this album to drop and according to me ( a Drake neutral) I think this album is one-sided and unbalanced. When listening to Thank Me Later there's a sense that this album is directed more to the female market with its more soft and emotional style in music.

Drake is undoubtably a leader of the new era shifting Hip Hop from a gangsta feel to a more personal art. His gift of being able to sing as well as rap turns to be his demon because he seems to sing on almost every song which makes all the songs sound alike. His metaphors and word play does him justice with his style of rap which keeps you interested in what he has to say.

But for a first album he has done a great job taking 'Over' from where he left off in his So Far Gone mixtape. songs to look out for on this album are: 'Over', 'Light Up' feat Jay-Z, 'Fancy' with Swizz Beatz, as well as 'Up All Night' if you're looking for that street feel that we have come to know him by.

So from the Creative Nerds team we give Drake's Thank Me Later 3.5 out of 5

Tracks 10 (light up) and 11 (miss me)are the total bomb diggy!
