The long awaited day is finally here. Well, it will be in a couple of hours. After a very dramatic month for him, Drake is releasing his 5th studio album Scorpion. If you've been living under a rock this whole time, he was brought into an intense beef with Pusha T at the top of the month to which we, the fans, found out he has a secret child by an ex porn star. Following this news, Hip Hop mogul, J. Prince, told Drake not to respond for the sake of his brand. With the release of new music, fans are anxious to see whether one or multiple songs will have a reply to Pusha T and if he'll be addressing his rumored child and baby mama.
Today, just hours before the release, Drake dropped off the tracklist with featured artists. There aren't too many on the double disc release but two of them are really standing out to me: JAY-Z & Michael Jackson. I was pretty sure JAY-Z and Drake weren't on the best terms with subliminal lines traded back and forth over the years. The king of pop MJ though? Is this just a sample? Did Drake get ahold unreleased vocals for an actual, posthumous feature? Other features include Static Major, which would make a second posthumous feature and Ty Dolla $ign who's also been on all the Kanye West-produced albums released this month. He's really turned his album rollout around after some bumps in the road but Drake typically delivers, right, wrong or indifferent. Looks like the internet will be talking with when this album drops.
