Drake is not one to rest on his laurels, but on his new track, “0 to 100/The Catch Up,” he already has his eye on 2015.
“If I’m not the greatest then I’m headed for it,” Drake raps over a simple beat.
The rest of the song, which he dropped yesterday (June 1) on his website, plays out like a not-so-humble brag with him making it clear he’s out for the rap game crown.
Later, Drake teases the follow-up to his most recent album, 2013’s Nothing Was The Same with a little help from James Blake, according to Vulture. Perhaps because Drizzy really isn’t going to be doing anymore interviews, he’s forced to do his own publicity now.
“Listen up boy you’re better off eavesdroppin’/ We already got spring 2015 poppin’/ PND droppin’, OB droppin’, Majid Jordan droppin’, not to mention me droppin’,” he raps.
So Drake is clearly looking to take over in 2015 with a little help from his label, October’s Very Own signees, PartyNextDoor, OB O’Brien and Majid Jordan, who appeared on the Nothing Was The Same track, “Hold On, We’re Going Home.”
But before he drops his fourth album, Drake is set to host the ESPY Awards on July 16. We imagine he’ll be bringing his own lint roller for the occasion. The following month on August 3, he’ll headline his 5th annual OVO Festival alongside Outkast.
