You want to be on Drake’s side. As Meek Mill learned this summer after firing ghostwriting allegations Drake’s way, the view of Drizzy as a “softy” is (at least partly) an illusion. Both “Charged Up” and “Back to Back” were diss songs colder than Meek’s “Wanna Know”, and Drake’s consensus win in the feud confirmed what the muscular songs of If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late suggested. His years at the top of the rap world have made him fearless, a temperament that comes through in blunt flows and hard beats. There’s no definitive proof that Drizzy has even reached the apex of his career, but he makes sure everyone knows he hasn’t fallen off an inch, making rap his own grand spectacle in the process.
