Eternally Trill: A New Drake Leak Surfaces Featuring The Late Pimp C
No matter how you view the meteoric ascent of Drake, you’ve gotta hand it to the kid for consistently waving his flag for the OGs. Particularly, the late Pimp C and his UGK bredren, Bun B. From the get, the north-of-the-border rap sensation has displayed the utmost reverence for these giants of hip-hop, developing an uncanny bond well beyond the passing of Pimp C that carries on to this day, appearing on several posthumous Pimp C releases, perhaps most notably, “What Up” (which trill aficionado, Sama’an Ashrawi, champions as one of Drizzy’s most memorable career moments.)
And so, when a new leak surfaces, easily assumed to be a selection from his soon-to-arrive Views From The 6 LP, it shouldn’t jar you so much as re-instill some of your faith in this current generation of MCs, who so quickly catch the full force of “heads” shouting “blaspheme!”. Today, precisely that has transpired with the arrival of “Faithful”; a waves-for-days track (bearing all the marks of 40 on production) that opens with a mic-check from the one and only, Pimp C, and though it may not seem like much more than a subtle tip of the hat, we feel confidant that both the new and old school will approve. Hear Drake’s “Faithful” down below and stay tuned. Views From The 6 could arrive any moment now.
