And to say it at such length, on top of it - all of his albums have been an hour or more in length, with Views clocking in at 81 minutes. You know, when Drake first came on the scene he felt like a breath of fresh air - a rapper who was not only a more-than-clever lyricist but vocally talented enough to sing his own hooks rather than bring in guest stars. But it's been downhill since Take Care, because he really does seem to have only one subject: "Oh, woe is me! I have everything for which a man could strive, but have I love? Nay, nay - why does no one love Aubrey for Aubrey? Prithee, I must cry myself to sleep on my gold-plated mattress filled with money." In this context, Nothing Was the Same is one of the most hilariously ironic album titles ever.
I have to ask, though: Why do you gotta fight with him at Cheesecake? You know he loves to go there!
