Apparently he's divisive. This seems to be because he's young, seems like kind of a douchebag and is known to sing with auto-tune. Luckily absolutely none of that shit matters when it comes to making a fantastically sequenced, astoundingly well produced record. There's nothing I hate more than listening to a rap album and a song comes on where you know there's going to be a feature before any vocals come in because the style of the track is so at odds with the rest of the album and so obviously tailored to try and sound like the featured artist. This does not happen on Thank Me Later. Not even once. NOT EVEN ON THE TRACK THAT FEATURES THE-DREAM. This is probably partially due to Drake's excellent decision to stick mostly to his in-house producer that provided the beats for So Far Gone. And when outside producers like Kanye and No ID show up the integrate themselves perfectly into the lush, minimal, chilled-out, almost trip hop sounding vibe of this album. If you live in the 1990's and are still concerned about determining what's "real hip hop" and have a knee jerk reaction to auto-tune this album is obviously not for you. But if you're interested in hearing what 808s and Heartbreak should have been you should probably give Thank Me Later a listen.
