Drake has been hyping up an up and coming album “Certified Lover Boy” since December of 2020. And a month after pushing the release date back, the prince of rap is keeping his fans at bay with the EP Scary Hours 2.
This release is reminiscent of back in 2018 before Drake blessed us with Scorpion; his second EP Scary Hours. The EP only featured two songs “God’s Plan” and “Diplomatic Immunity“. Just like this EP, it’s just a reminder to the masses that Drizzy is in the booth and heating up.
Drake announced the the surprise record via Instagram @champagnepapi last Thursday, and dropped on midnight everywhere.
Drake’s Scary Good Flow
The EP seems to have a little more thought out into it than his previous one, and carries a similar vibe to his last project Dark Lane Demo Tapes. Scary Hours 2 comes with three hard-hitting tracks and features rap icons Lil Baby and Rick Ross.
We get much of the same Drake rapping about his luxurious yet mundane lifestyle. In the first single “What’s Next” we get an update on what he’s been doing since we’ve last heard him.
But Drake wouldn’t be Drake without getting a little introspective also. The track “Wants and Needs” featuring Lil Baby reflects on his obligations are as a private person and one of the most influential people of our time.
On the Rick Ross collaboration “Lemon Pepper Freestyle” Drake calls out the industry for what it is. He feels that there is a disconnect between talent and fame and he sees the industry changing before our eyes.
This EP still confirms the theory that Drake does not miss. From the mixing and production, to his predominant flow, the Certified Lover Boy has some certified bangers. His album is still expected to drop later this year and if it’s anything close to the EP, it will not disappoint.
