Drake addresses fake street cats with a lyrical track called “Two Birds One Stone,” off his upcoming “More Life” project. Drake’s 30th birthday is tomorrow, and all his fans are already celebrating, as he just announced a new project, More Life, and premiered four new tracks on OVO Sound Radio. He began with a track called “Two Birds One Stone,” which will appear on More Life. The song will be welcomed fare for those longing for Drake at his most lyrical. He raps nonstop for the better part of four minutes, alternating crafty metaphors and similes with layered, reflective storytelling.
Over lo-fi, sample-heavy R&B production — the classic OVO formula, likely involving 40 — Drake’s main focus with “Two Birds One Stone” is to address those who question his status in the rap game because his background isn’t in the streets. He defends his own story while also attempting to expose rappers who cling to dope boy fantasies when they’ve really only engaged in low-level street activity.
