1 Verse, 1 Hearse #6, Drake – Free Spirit
Drizzy Drake Rodgers has been regulating these Hip Hop streets lately.
Not an easy task to do, if I say so myself. J Cole, Mac Miller, and B.o.B, all dropped new music this week. But those 3 killer tracks Drake dropped stole the hearse. By the time the other guys tried to catch up, Drake was already across the border in Canada selling the hearse for parts, and tattooing his name on 18 year old chicks.
Tell a bad bitch girl, lets go hang
You know me, rolex, gold chain
Fuck my young niggas, XO gang
Get so drunk you forget yo name
Incense, burning, smoking out to my own shit
Got black wood in my white Range
Im taking off when that light change
Im Drizzy Drake to my old bitches
Voodoo child to my new hoes
I miss this and I want it back
So Im all in with these new flows
New flows, got new flows
rap is stress but it pays great
Pimp flows ‘n screw flows
my shit be sounding like gray tapes, now
Lemme go an hit that cup
1 time before a nigga hit that road
These days keep going by too fast
so give anything that make shit go slow
Yea, money in my safe, but I’m living dangerous
They told me shit would change, but I don’t really see no change in us
Drake and 40 began “Free Spirit” with a calming saxophone. I expected another slow R&B track such as “Marvin’s Room”. So Drake’s speedy delivery hit me like a dirty Victor Ortiz headbutt. Drizzy can be heard experimenting with new flows, new flows, his ish be sounding like gray tapes now. But seriously, I’m glad Drake is experimenting with a somewhat new delivery that will only add another dimension to his already versatile raps. Drake doesn’t show any growth lyrically but his flow is much improved. Topic wise Drake sticks to the always safe, females-love-me-so-much topic. Well that’s from a critics/alCOLEholic’s perspective. From a neutral perspective, all I can say is that although this track will not influence the next MLK, there is not a lot of things left to talk about in Hip Hop. Mostly everything has been talked about. Girls, love, cars, clothes, money, drug dealing, government, and poverty. Even the latter subjects get boring too. The only thing that changes is the way that artists talk about these subjects. So the hate on Drake regarding his repetitive subject matter isn’t completely fair. Besides, I don’t think Drake has abused this subject into boredom. It’s hilarious how we criticize some rappers for making tracks only for radio, yet we also criticize rappers for not making radio tracks.
At the end of the day, Drake stole this weeks hearse. Whenever a rapper makes females think about getting their names tatted on them, a hearse is nearly automatic. Don’t hate, your girl might already have a Drake tat on her. Blame it on Drake’s new flows. Until the next 1 Verse, 1 Hearse, I’m out, take care.
