What do you get when you combine two of the hottest rap artists out right now, add a mixtape, and no release date? Pandemonium! Drake and Future have had the Internet a blaze this past month with speculations of a new mixtape, yet the public never got an official release date. Sunday, Sept. 21 the speculation and rumors were put to rest. These two powerhouses joined together to create a body of work called “What a Time to Be Alive.” It is hard not to bring up Future or Drake’s name, when talking about the current state of hip-hop. The mixtapes name itself, is a great way to sum up all that’s going on in the world the past couple of years, it is really a special time to be alive. And who better then to bring us energetic, feel good songs than Drake and Future. The album has very few slow songs (a signature style for Drake), and more fun beats, and catchy lyrics. This album/mixtape is a teaser for Drake fans as he is set to release the highly anticipated “Views from the 6” album soon. Stay tuned for more from both of these hip hop powerhouses!
