His OVO Fest is still two months away but rapper Drake has already released a teaser of his next studio album expected to drop in the spring of 2015.
"Oh lord, I'm the rookie and a vet," Drake raps early on in the track before referring to Steph Curry of the NBA's Golden State Warriors. "F--k all that rap that pay your bills s--t, I want some Raptors pay my bills s--t," he raps later, a reference to his "global ambassador" status for the Toronto Raptors.
The rap later refers to his father and being self-sufficient before the song moves into a slower, mellower, ambient-tinged tone. "We already got Spring 2015 poppin'," Drake says later in the six-minute clip. "I'm only 27 and I'm only getting better, if I haven't passed you yet watch me catch up now..." he also raps.
The latest track comes after "Days In The East," another new track produced by PARTYNEXTDOOR and referring to Drake stopping by to meet Erykah Badu. According to Drake's official site the new song was produced by Boi-1da and co-produced by "Nineteen85" and Noah "40" Shebib. Also earlier this year, Drake offered another song entitled "Draft Day" which featured references to Jennifer Lawrence, noted college quarterback — and Cleveland Browns draft pick — Johnny Manziel among many others.
As for the new album, no official release date or title has been confirmed for the follow-up to last year's "Nothing Was The Same." Drake will perform at OVO at Toronto's Molson Canadian Amphitheatre Aug. 3-4. OutKast will headline the first night while Drake and special unannounced guests will headline night two.
