Drake – Summer Sixteen

Drake premiered a new single last night on his Beats 1 show OVO Sound Radio. Drake also announced that the long-awaited Views From The 6 will be dropping in April. Produced by Noah “40,” Shebib, Boi-1da, and CuBeatz.

Drake finds himself comparing his bodyguard to Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors. “You know Chubbs like Draymond.” Drake also had a message for the President in response to Barack’s claim that Kendrick would beat him in a rap battle. “Tell Obama that my verses are like the whips that he in/ They bulletproof.” Taking shots at the President of the United States of America before Kendrick. That in itself speaks volumes. Nobody is messing with K. Dot, Drake at least knows this. Listen to Drizzy’s newest release below.
