I was introduced to Drew Drake via SubmitHub and his song, “4Ever.” I had to check out the rest of the project, as “4Ever” was a damn good song, down to its gospel-esque production. Galaxy tells a story of a man who has found love and wants to pursue it. It feels that it’s also a personification, a la Common’s “I Used to Love H.E.R.” with a mix of Big KRIT’s booming production with a bit of Andre 3000 bounce. This becomes apparent a bit more on tracks like “Mud Veins.” Here, Drake and featured artist Black Atticus rap about how they’re trying to keep the game pure and without the mainstream contamination. It’s equally about love with a partner as it is about the love of hip-hop.
In other words, this is a helluva project that deserves to be heard by everyone. If you need some lyrically-sound and trunk-rattling songs, I recommend peeping this one. Lyrically, he’s on point with multiple multis, lyrics that one can relate to and a story that’s engrossing as much as it is masterfully done. He gives bars that have something for everyone without compromising his content. That’s always a plus over in these parts. Sonically, again, Drake reminds me of KRIT (also a plus).
