OVO Sound boss Drake has kept his word on putting out some fire music. The hip-hop heavyweight has delivered his new, hits-filled Dark Lane Demo Tapes mixtape out to the masses.
On Friday, the hip-hop heavyweight put out some major new music since recently dropping a compilation effort filled with throwback leaked songs. His latest release is filled with various leaks and one-off records which ultimately scattered across the Internet.
Dark Lane Demo Tapes, is a 14-song compilation featuring SoundCloud one-offs (“Chicago Freestyle,” “When To Say When”), songs first seeded to TikTok (“Toosie Slide“), and the aforementioned leaks (“Pain 1993,” “Demons”). The project features frequent Drake collaborators like Future and Young Thug, alongside up-and-comers like Fivio Foreign and Giveon. (Rolling Stone)
