New Drake Song
2013-02-02 by Seth Barry-Hinton | 44 Comments
R&B performer Drake, formerly known as Wheelchair Jimmy, has released a new single entitled "Started From the Bottom", because irony is in right now. The song will serve as the first single for his upcoming, currently untitled third album, and was originally planned for release on the night of the 55th Grammy Awards. It has been preemptively released on Drake's personal BlogSpot, along with a statement.

Wow, I usually find reasons to keep listening to my favorite artist. Drake was my favorite hip hop artist 3 years ago, even Take Care was pretty good. This is just utter shit. Sorry Drake but may or may not even check out the album.

By himself Drake is great, but I'm so fucking tired of his features... Now, if I'm to believe the comments, he's getting shitty all around. Disappointing...

Drake, just bring back the xx influenced music you did with Take Care that was some of the best rap I'd heard in a long time; this just sounds like a bad A$AP Rocky song.

This started from the bottom of the barrel and it will be in the bottom of the barrel for a long time.

The whack flow totally makes sense when you imagine him heading into the studio after an hour-long clambake. He's definitely not himself on this

I really like it. A real bold move to make this the first single, but it rules so whatever

it's not bad at all, but it's not fantastic. he always had an ear for production though.

I've never been a fan of his at all so I'm hesitant to even pause Botch for this.

Well the beat is good, I have to give him credit for that, but drake ruins everything.

Beat was good, but Drake fucking sucks on this.. Why does he need to repeat the same line over and over again.. The "mainstream" syndrome..

Drake needs to drop the rapping and just stick with producing beats, he's got a real ear for them but his flow and lyrics have, and will always be, shit.

Drake's lyrics and autotune are painful, worse than a torture made by Vaas Montenegro and Hoyt Volker.
