"How you feel about...?"
With September 24th rapidly approaching, another track from Drake's Nothing Was The Same was revealed today. Much speculation surrounded the title "Wu Tang Forever" once the tracklist first appeared, and today is the public's chance to interpret the reference with respect to the actual content of the song. It nods to the titular collective's album Wu Tang Forever, most notably with a sample of Raekwon's first couple of lines on the song "It's Yourz."
Jhene Aiko's soft vocals come in on the outro, and in typical Drake form, some of these lyrics are just incredible subliminals, like "I just like the rush when you see your enemy somewhere in the club/And you realize he just not in a position to reciprocate your energy/You ain't ever worried cause he's not who he pretends to be."
Listen to the track here.
Update: Inspectah Deck and Raekwon both responded on Twitter this morning and praised Drake for his new record. Wu-Tang Clan's official Twitter account has also followed suit. Read below.
