I know I’m late buuuuuuuuuuuuut I had to do a review on this Scorpion album.
Of course Pusha T spilled the tea about Drake having a son and Drake admitted it TWICE on the album with NO SHAME.
Drake has two sides of the album, which is equivalent to the days when cassette tapes were in. A side is him rapping and B side is him singing.
Honestly, it’s a pretty nice album but it no Nothing Was The Same album, but it’s close to the level of Views. He talks briefly about his son in Emotionless, which is one of the best songs on the album and the best song on the A Side, stating “I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid.” What really made the song dope besides Drake’s bars was the Mariah Carey Emotions sample throughout the song.
It’s been said that Drake even took a slight jab back at Pusha T in his song 8 Out Of 10, stating he could go harder on him but he won’t and even though he exposed to the world that Drake had a son, he said “Kiss my son on the forehead and kiss your ass goodbye.” To me, he’s dismissing Pusha and Drake even threw in a skit by Plies in the end of song “I can’t argue with you—you mad—-I’m happy, leave me alone—I just want some money, a lot of money. You ain’t nobody.” Welp that’s self-explanatory.
B Side is Drake’s singing side, which I always like more. One of my favorite songs on this side is That’s How You Feel, which was a sample of Nicki rapping a freestyle at a show; and In My Feelings. This damn song has been soooo popular due to the dance that’s been going with it, The Shiggy. Celebs from Lala to Lil Duval have been doing it. Also, Drake talks about his son Adidon in the song March 14, showing that he isn’t ashamed to talk about it but he ain’t gon give us alll the tea. He did open up about how he resented his parents for not making it work but now he has to coparent with a woman, just like his parents did for him. He only seen his son once but he’s supposed to be seeing him soon and hopefully him and the child’s mother can put their differences aside and make it work. Now granted, if Drake’s son mother wasn’t a porn star, he probably would be slightly more open about how they met and what the relationship was like; or even if he was in a semi public relationship with her…but he wasn’t at all. Regardless, he makes good music an just like Chris Brown, he can’t do no wrong!
Again, I liked this album, it was better than More Life. Drake seem to never disappoint.
