Drake And Future – What A Time To Be Alive Review

This mixtape is a bizarre mix of elements from both artists. However it is not necesserily the best parts of each rapper that gets blended.

The production is good, but can become repetitive and stale. The beats are not quite diverse enough to stand out from each other on a full listen through, which means the rhymes are relied on to carry the whole project. Diversity could be the key to replay ability.

The lyricism is good from Drake but the same old Future we always get. While he does not exactly slack, Future seems to be happy where he is, which is cranking out the same sort of music he always does. Drake seems to be pushing himself more since his recent diss tracks. A bit more drive to be better than the rest of the new generation could lead to further improvements.

Overall, this project shows that Drake is trying to improve while Future knows what will sell without drive and effort. An enjoyable mixtape for a while but not a lot of longevity.
