DRAKE STARTS 2018 WITH TWO TRACK EP

January 21, 2018

 

At first when I saw this drop, I assumed "Scary Hours" was a track, but in fact its the name of the 2-track EP which contains "God's Plan" and "Diplomatic Immunity".

 

“God’s Plan” is produced by 40, Boi-1da, Cardo, and Yung Exclusive, while “Diplomatic Immunity” features Boi-1da behind the boards with assistance from Nick Brongers. The latter track samples Ol' Dirty Bastard’s intro on Wu-Tang Clan’s “Triumph” from their 1997 album Wu-Tang Forever. Drake previously sampled the New York hip-hop group on “Wu-Tang Forever” from his 2013 release Nothing Was the Same.

 

Verse 2 is my favourite on "God's Plan":

 

She say, "Do you love me?" I tell her, "Only partly"
I only love my bed and my momma, I'm sorry

 

Yo, same. I've already seen this line tweeted.


Fifty dub, I even got it tatted on me
81, they'll bring the crashers to the party
And you know me
Turn the 02 into the 03, dog
Without 40, Oli, there would be no me
Imagine if I never met the broski's

 

Good on Drizz for always paying respect to his day one boys. Noah and Oliver have a big part to do with Drake's success as his main producer and manager responsible for the OVO brand. It pays off to keep your crew tight.

 

Now on “Diplomatic Immunity,” Drake addresses his rumored relationship with Jennifer Lopez:

 

Waking up at 6 pm like, “Where does the day go?”
Forecasting tornados
Brainstorming retaliation at dinner tables
2010 was when I lost my halo
2017 I lost a J. Lo


He also seems to take shots at Joe Budden (they have a history), the former host of Everyday Struggle on Complex and a rival of Drake’s:

 

Shit is complex like short niggas around tall ladies
I gotta watch who I’m talking to like it’s all ages
I’ve seen budding careers turn to sit around and talk about other careers, judging their peers
Knowledge from niggas who did not contribute to none of this here

 

As usual, there are many more quotables from the 6 Man but we'll let you go enjoy them yourself without anymore spoilers.
