Drake – ‘Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2′ Feat. Jay Z
The two rap superstars previously joined forces on Drizzy’s ‘Light Up’ and Hov’s ‘Off That’ off 2010′s ‘Thank Me Later’ and 2009′s ‘The Blueprint 3,’ respectively. Since then, they had been in the studio together multiple times with no music to speak of, until now of course.
With musical and lyrical references Wu-Tang Clan‘s ‘C.R.E.A.M.’ and Rihanna‘s ‘Birthday Cake,’ the message within the moody and almost-quivering ‘Pound Cake’ should be apparent. Drake and Jay trade rhymes about getting paper—and in the case of the latter it’s a lot of paper for him and his friends like Just Blaze. The song also serves as a mellow lead in to its counterpart, the more celebratory ‘Paris Morton Music 2.’
You can hear ‘Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2′ below. Drake’s ‘Nothing Was The Same’ drops next Tuesday (Sept. 24).
