After several delays, Drake’s For All The Dogs has finally arrived, much to fans’ delight.
The release comes in October, the month synonymous with his OVO branding, and on the 6th, the nickname is bestowed upon his hometown of Toronto.
Hours before we got the album, Drizzy unveiled the tracklist, which features a jaw-dropping 22 songs and even has some assistance from a lot of his musician friends like Lil Yachty, SZA, Bad Bunny, Chief Keef, PARTYNEXTDOOR, and 21 Savage.
The album also gives us a long-awaited collaboration with J. Cole, entitled “First Person Shooter,” since the two haven’t worked together in over a decade. NBA superstar and friend Kevin Durant serves as the project’s A&R.
Drake talked about hooking up with his contemporary for the first time in a while on the latest episode of his Table for One radio show as he prepped the world for the album’s release.
Fans were expecting the bars to start off with a bang because he named the first track “Virginia Beach,” which happens to be the hometown of nemesis Pusha T and his longtime friend Pharrell, whose jewelry Drake purchased at auction and allegedly melted down.
He gets a bit more specific with his beef and mentions Virginia again on “Fear of Heights,” bragging that he freely moved around the city, but others could never do the same in Toronto.
“You n-ggas some p-ssy, for real/ You n-ggas some sissy, for real,” he raps. “Virginia, I pull up and chill/You know you can’t come where I stay.”
For All the Dogs marks Drake’s fourth project in four years after capping off his trilogy of Certified Lover Boy, Honest Nevermind, and Her Loss. With all the work he’s put in, he spoke on his SiriusXM radio show, Table for One, that he’ll be taking a break from the studio.
