Album: Rich Forever
Producer: The Beat Bully

"Stay Schemin" is a Drake song in everything but name. It's a continuation of the chilling sound Drake and Ross had already developed on a string of collaborative singles, from "I'm On One" to "Aston Martin Music," and French Montana's slurred style perfectly complemented the ambiance. Drake, of course, ended up with the record's most memorable line, a shot at Kobe's wife (one he later apologized for). But the entire presentation of the track was only possible in a post-Drake world, where anxious ambiguity is a the canvas. "Stay Schemin'" remains a stark, ominous soundtrack of emotional turbulence. DD
