Riff: Drake – “Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2”

Sep 18, 2013

Overly focused, it’s far from the time to rest now/Debates growing ’bout who they think is the best now/Took a while, got the jokers out of the deck now/I’m holding all the cards and niggas wanna play chess now

from Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2 lyrics by Drake

Some lament the lack of originality in music while other tin men like Drake embrace it. It gives him heart to xerox whatever the hype machine churns out, but don’t let it deter you from tipping your cap. Drake in all his hullabaloo proves that he’s not the charlatan most believe him to be; [LISTEN].
