Drake Tries To “Do It All” In New Mixtape Track

Jul 15th, 2010 // 1 Comment

The mixtape No More Thank You’s dropped today, and – no surprise – much of the chatter has focused on the new Drake joint, the doleful “Do It All.” No official word on when the track was recorded, although it appears to be a leftover from his Thank Me Later sessions. Catch it below.

“Gettin’ stupid paid, off of smart decisions / I’m the man now, I guess that part’s a given / Someone please tell me the problem with my competition / I ask what’s up, and they just always say the cost of livin’,” raps Drake. The beat is interesting on this Rob Holladay-produced tune, and it has a futuristic synth-y flair as the track revvs up, concluding with a somber piano.

As far as Drizzy’s vocals go, he switches from impressively rapping his flow to not-so-impressively showcasing his singing. Although Drake has never been known for having a velvety smooth singing voice, in this track, it sounds like he’s a pack-a-day smoker. It’s distracting how much rasp he’s got. Somebody give this guy a glass of water or something.
