The brand new Drake album, “For All of the Canine,” isn’t an innovation within the Drake oeuvre. It’s not a house for stylistic experimentation, or a group of forward-looking lyrics. As an alternative, it’s an extension and distillation of what he’s been doing for a decade and a half: inform private tales lower with boasting, offering a view into the damaged coronary heart of a famous person.
And but the album has led to a few of the most divisive discourse of Drake’s profession, resulting in conversations about maturity and misogyny. It additionally units the desk for debates about what a post-Drake period in hip-hop may look and sound like.
On this week’s Popcast, a dialog about Drake’s artistic boundaries, how he’s managed to push back stylistic shifts in hip-hop, and the way he may strategy the center and later years of his recording profession.
