Rumor has it a high school student in Georgia leaked Drake’s song How About Now on Soundcloud. It has since been taken down but the staff of HipHopDX got a listen and reports that the song is like “splashing cold water on your face after finishing a marathon in the Mojave.” PapehamLincoln wrote that How About Now is “the perfect amount of soul-infused spacy production layered with relatable lyrical content that sticks.”
HipHopDX’s Justin writes: “For better and worse, this is quintessential Drizzy — the one that’ll call up an ex-girlfriend to tell them they deserve better than her new boo—only this time it’s her fault and he revels in mashing his success in her mug. ‘You thought the little effort you put in was enough, girl,’ he kinda raps on the How About Now’s sap-tastic hook. ‘Cause I’m up right now. And you suck right now.’” Ouch. On that happy note–Happy Birthday, Drake. On Friday, October 24 the Canadian rapper will turn 28.
