more garbage hip pop about girls, fame and money. ugh.. boring... NEXT! hes not even a rapper. this is
trash, the guests suck and drake actually thinks hes not being offensive to women... all he talks about is
fucking chicks wtf. G-A-R-B-A-G-E. do not listen to this, every song is the same. i would give him a
slightly higher rating since he's new but he thinks he's the greatest thing in hip hop. he has no flow,
no meaningful lyrics, no good guests, no good beats. nothing here is even worth listening to.
Unforgettable and Light Up are the worst songs. Unforgettable features Jeezy (just what we need, two
insanely terrible "rappers" on one track) and Light Up has Jay-Z, who still thinks he's so great. He hasn't put
out a single good album since 1996! Get over your ego Jay, you fucking suck!

Drake represents everything that is wrong with modern Hip-Hop. Boring production, passionless vocals and some of the worst lyrics I've ever heard. To put things in perspective, the album is slightly better than Soulja Boy's new album.

If it wasn't for those chill ass beats, album would be totally useless. It should also be noted that Thank Me Later might break a record for using "I" the most on an album. Drake, you're not that interesting.

Unfortunately, given his curious success, Drake is the sad, sad future of rap.

Better than his mixtape/previous EP tbh. However, still doesn't hold water when placed next to most hip-hop artists of his genre. Sounds like an even blander version of Kanye's 808s. I'll give this a 2.5 since he is still a youngster trying to find his sound.
While i've got your attention though you should go check out Eminem's Recovery. It is 1000 leagues greater than this.

Drake presents himself as best as he can for his first album released. This album is far better than any cudi, wale, asher roth, etc....
Shit has soul.

|4.0 excellent||idk | September 13th 11|
Amazing primarily pop rap/R&B with personal Drake twists and a story about a young man
thrust into his fame and having to assure himself that he's worth it. Not as artsy as So Far
Gone or Take Care but Aubrey and 40 still knew how to write fantastic poppier songs.

Terrible... Some of the lines are just so dumb i want to kill myself. "Wu-Tang niggas want that cream".. wow
doesnt even make sense. "All my friends out partying while i make the music they party to, so party on
party on". What was he thinking? Every song is about how terrible his poor, famous life is. Drake, I mean
this in the best way possible. Shut the fuck up. Your life is just fine so stop complaining about it. When i
hear 16 year old boys listening to this it makes me sick. Even girls shouldn't listen to him. This idiot barely
qualifies as a rapper.
Alright, i gave it a slightly higher rating due to some good production, a few good guests, and some pretty
good songs like "Up all Night, "Light Up" and "Miss Me". However it's still boring, generic and overrated and,
like Public Enemy said in 1988, "don't believe the hype".

Shut It Down is a goddamn masterpiece.
|3.5 great||TheManMachine | December 26th 14|
Overzealous: certainly, 808s coattail-riding: at times and I'm grateful, cocky: quite, sappy confessional: awkwardly so. But it all sure makes for some remarkable themes. The dominant one being dealing with newfound fame: enjoying its endless perks while also feeling hesitant and overwhelmed as hell. The star of the show has the words and lots of em, but is a bit newbish when it comes to flow (especially when compared to his guests, who all provide excellence). But it comes across as authentic, which is what's really important here. And when he wants to, he can really work it: I believe him when he says he's "been up for four days making money both ways", I'm almost positive he's not looking for pity when he admits to calling "some chick I met at the mall that I barely know at all" instead of Grandma in the nursing home, and he's smart enough to ask himself "what am I doin'?".

Not an inherently bad album, it has some mildly enjoyable moments, but there's nothing here that will knock you flat and leave you genuinely impressed.

I was excited to hear this album at first because of all the acclaim Drake got in general. I was disappointed, though, because it sounds like he just casually drifted his way through this whole thing.rThe album is bogged down by filler and packing it on with guest stars as if that could save it. Where Drake should be defining himself as a rapper and showing audiences who he is, he spends most of the time playing second fiddle to other already-established rappers who flaunt themselves about.rIt was an incredibly disappointing release, and has not aged well in the slightest.
|1.0 awful||Mark Campbell | January 26th 11|
Here you go: thank you, Drake, for ensuring that I needn't waste any time listening to you in the future. Thanks also for proving that mainstream rap is still in just as shitty a condition as it was last year. Or maybe I should thank you for wielding your insane powers of suck to save me from going past track 4 and actually listening to this entire steaming pile of baby shit you, 40, Weezy and your other 392 guest stars cooked up? SRSLY THANKS BRO UR TEH FUCKIN BEST

Decent album with some bangerz here and there. Sounds exactly how one would expect Aubrey to sound like a few years ago.
|0.0 ||For Meatplow | September 18th 10|
Outrageously tedious, full of terrible lyrics, and performed by an inept rapper with offensively choppy flow, Drake's Thank Me Later shows itself off as a pretentious grab for cash rather than something respectable.
|3.0 good||Chris Gibbons | June 19th 10|
A few gems are on this album, but the end result is too much hype and a bunch of wasted potential. Also 808s and Heartbreak is soooo 2008.
|2.0 poor||NYdubber | June 19th 10|
Given the hype that was behind this - I feel obligated to lower my previous rating upon further review.
|3.5 great||Nick Porcaro | June 17th 10|
So his one-liners are painfully corny and should have been excised. So it has the "808s and Heartbreaks"
vibe. So he uses the same flow too much. So it's not quite as good as "So Far Gone"...so what? The
production is by FAR the best I've heard all year and the songs are mostly growers. "Fancy", "Show me a
Good Time", "Shut it Down", "Find Your Love", "Thank Me Now", "Over", "Light Up" and "Unforgettable" are
straight-up bangers. Give it some time, ignore the hype, and listen with an open mind...at least it's not

some good beats but Drake's flow is so boring, and all the most of the songs are R&Bish
|3.0 good||Pistol Pete | June 14th 10|
Oh Drake, how I wanted to hate this album on the basis of how much I dislike you and your cockiness. You would've loved to see my reaction when I started having some songs from here stuck in my head. I still wouldn't consider this a great album, but some songs on here (really just tracks 4-7) are just really good songs. Sneaky bastard. Recommended Songs: Over, Find Your Love, Show Me A Good Time, Up All Night
|2.5 average||dylli2012 | June 12th 10|
Best tracks are Light Up, Fireworks, Find Your Love, and Thank Me Now. Too much filler though. Fancy, Shut It Down, Miss Me, and Up All Night. Expected better from Drake.

BYTCHES LOVE THIS ALBUM, GETS ME HELLA PUSS.
In all honesty,
Mixtapes were better.
|2.0 poor||Joe Schmoh | June 6th 10|
Drake's writing is pretty awkward, and the majority of the beats are plodding and boring as shit. 40 sounds good until you hear Kanye's two beats, and then you realize his 808-isms are just uneventful and hack-ish. As for Drake, ummm, at least he's kinda getting BETTER.
|3.5 great||Alexander | June 4th 10|
.....I thought this album was up? Guess someoned it. I was thinking that i would hate this album. However Drake works his melodies and beats like a charm despite his lyrics being decent at best (but certainly an improvement from his mixtapes). It's good he got a number of guest spots to help him throughout the album. Drake might live in his post-808 & Heartbreak sound for a while but on Thank Me Later he pulls it of well.
