Drake’s Certified Lover Boy finally arrived on Friday (September 3) and the hot takes from both sides of the coin were flying across social media within minutes of its release.
Rappers and a bunch of Drizzy’s Hip Hop compatriots were interested in hearing what Drake had to say with his latest offering, as Freddie Gibbs, Lil Durk, Timbaland, Lupe Fiasco, Sonny Digital, Stalley, Reason, HipHopDX Rising Star DDG and more offered up opinions on The Boy’s sixth studio effort.
“Drake shit go hard. Duh,” Gangsta Gibbs commented like it was another day at the office for Drake.
Even Tom Brady got in on the fun by joking he wasn’t on CLB with one of the many billboards Drizzy put up in various cities nationwide to reveal features on the project.
“Feel kind of left out to be honest Congrats bro! @Drake,” the Super Bowl-winning quarterback wrote.
On the heels of calling himself Chicago’s JAY-Z, Lil Durk compared his current feature run to that of “prime Lil Wayne,” which we take to be around Tha Carter III era in 2007 to 2008.
Durk also has the numbers to back up his claims, since he’s notched the most Billboard Hot 100 entries of any artist this year so far with 35.
Certified Lover Boy boasts 20 tracks and is littered with star-studded features from the likes of JAY-Z, Future, Young Thug, 21 Savage, Travis Scott, Lil Baby, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross and more.
