Listen: Drake’s new song “Draft Day”

on April 01, 2014, 11:23pm

Six months removed from Nothing Was the Same and Drake continues to keep us on our toes with new music. Following “Trophies” and the “We Made It” Remix, not to mention the recent live debut of “Days in the East”, Drizzy has revealed a new freestyle called “Draft Day”. As you might expect, it references the upcoming NBA and NFL drafts with nods to Andrew Wiggins and Drake’s BFF Johnny Manziel, respectively. For the most part, however, the five-minute cut is full of colorful boasts. The line everyone will be talking about Wednesday morning? “If I’d leave this shit to chance, I’da picked a name like Chance the Rapper”. Though, my personal favorite is “Sprite got me on payroll /Let that man live / They said, OK if you say so.”

Listen below. The sample? Lauryn Hill’s “Doo-Wop”.
