The rumors are true— kinda. Drake released his “Scary Hours 2” EP on March 5 which contained three songs “What’s Next,” “Wants and Needs” and “Lemon Pepper Freestyle.”
This is an addition to his original “Scary Hours” EP which included “God’s Plan” and “Diplomatic Immunity” in 2018, prior to dropping his recent album “Scorpion.” The rapper has been creating anticipation for the drop of his sixth studio album “Certified Lover Boy” which has been delayed throughout 2021 but supposedly is coming soon according to Drake in his recent tweet from Complex Music.
“Scary Hours 2” EP has given his fans a taste of “What’s Next” to come. This song is the first on EP that Drake dropped a music video for as well. The video consists of scenes around the rapper’s hometown, Toronto, while showing off cars and the notorious CN Tower. He also shows off his heart cut out in his hair alluding to his new album coming soon.
In recent news, Drake threw shade at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s divorce in the next song, “Wants and Needs” featuring Lil Baby. Drake neither confirms nor denies but continues to fuel rumors of having an affair with Kim Kardashian in his lyrics:
“Yeah, I probably go link to Yeezy I need me some Jesus but as soon as I start confessin’ my sins, he wouldn’t believe us”“Wants and Needs”
This is not the first time Drake has tried getting under Kanye West’s skin with his songs. When he featured on Travis Scott’s song “Sicko Mode,” he gave directions to a random location which fans recognized leads right to the West’s home as both rappers live in the same development.
“I crept down the block (down the block), made a right (yeah, right)”“Sicko Mode”
Drake and Kanye West have been feuding for years going back and forth in song lyrics. This alleged affair is heating up even more now that West is facing a divorce and Drake’s new bash just is the cherry on top.
Drake ended the EP off with another collaboration for “Lemon pepper Freestyle” featuring Rick Ross. It starts off with a sample that then allows Ross to spite for a couple of minutes. Drake then takes back over the song and lays down what some are saying is his best verse yet.
Does this new EP drop cover up the fact that none of us at VALLEY have received the album we’ve been waiting for all of 2021 for? No, but it is satisfying our demand for the stalling of the full studio album. Since the first “Scary Hour” EP was released a few months before his fifth studio album “Scorpion,” it makes sense to understand that everyone might have to wait a little bit longer for “Certified Lover Boy.”
