Drake’s More Life Album Is A Body Of Work That’ll Satisfy Any Type Of Hip Hop/RnB Ears!
Coincidentally I was on my way back from Toronto when Drake decided to drop the More Life album. During our 5 hours road trip back to Montreal, we blasted the album from track 1 to 22 and I must admit that I was very impressed by the Toronto’s rapper catalog.
The More Life album is a mix of various type of sounds and cadences that Drake managed to put together in one single album. I give him props for trying once again to implement dancehall and afrobeats influences in his work even though the hip hop community tends to see this as a “culture vulture” move.
More Life Album Preview
The vibes go from trap, RnB, afrobeats and dancehall throughout the album. This project highly reflects on the rapper’s favourite topics such as his up and downs in relationships (Rihanna got served of course),his different industry beefs with artists like Meek Mill, Tory Lanez and many other things.
Drake made sure this album was an open window to his day to day life, his top dog status in hip hop and made the listeners enjoy his versatility like never before.
Today we will overview some of the topics, songs and highligths of the More Life album and review why this project is definitely a slap in the face courtesy of the 6 God!
1. Drake And Kanye West Are Cool Despite Previous Rumors
When Kanye went nuts on stage claiming that Dj Khaled & Drake might have tricked the radio platforms for pushing their single “For Free’ too much; it was unclear what was their relationship status.
Drake previously said that he was moving away from Kanye but thanks for the fans, it seems like the track “Glow” previewed their “Calabasas Is The New Abu Dhabi” project. A Kanye and Drake joint that is definitely worth your time!
2. Tory Lanez Got Washed Up For His Sneak Dissin Antics
His back and forths with Drake are well documented but this time around Drake made it clear how he feels about his fellow Toronto nemesis.
In the track called “Do Not Disturb”, Drake took shots at Tory in a clever way in the following lyrics:
You overnight celebrity you one day star I swear I told you I’m in this bitch for eternity I am a reflection of all of your insecurities Behind closed doors a lot of 6 God worshipping Done talk now ‘cause there’s other shit that concerning me
3. Drake Is Extremely Versatile
By the minute you start to groove and reminisce about your first love with tracks like “Teeange Fever”, you then start to dabb like a possessed man to “Gyalchester” only to kick back and think about life to the sound of “Get It Together”.
I believe that this something missing in music these days. I feel like hip hop artists forgot how important it is to provide variety in their albums and specifically production wise.
the More life album brings you many different talents, flows and rythms brought to you by some of the hottest producers such as boi1da, 40, Kanye West and many more
4. You Could Never Call Drake Soft Again After Hearing “Free Smoke”
When I read the title “Free Smoke”, I was shocked and I clearly doubted that Drake could go hard enough to make it relevant. I thought it was another attempt to sound hard like when he dropped “Worst Behaviour”.
Not to clown Drake but I don’t know any “hardbody” rapper that would tell somebody “Hold My Phone” before they fight right?
The 6 God did his thing in “Free Smoke” and to my surprise it was one of his only songs that could almost be qualified as gangsta rap at some points. The track was catchy but now we can all say that Drake is the “singing rapper” you don’t want to mess with.
5. Drake Let His Exes Know The Deal
I predict alot of headlines for this album because Drake is reminding us why he is the KING of internet trolling with the More Life album.
Even though J-lo previously revealed that her and Drake wasn’t a thing, the Toronto emcee wants to think otherwise with lyrics like “I drunk text J.Lo/Old number so it bounce back.” and the fact that he sampled her “If You Had My Love” classic song.
Regardless if you’re a Drake’s fan or not, the More Life album is a solid project that you should you definitely listen to (at least once). At this point, there are rumors that Drake might go back to acting in a near future.
Do you think Drake should stick to music? What are your thoughts about the More Life album?

Montreal Mural Arts Festival : Everything you need to know
Everything you need to know about the Montreal Mural Arts Festival is here !
This is the 7th edition of the festival.
It all started from the dream of 4 men who loved traveling around the world to attend the planet’s best festivals. Alexis Froissart, Andre Bathalon, Yan Cordeau and Nicolas Munn Rico (founders of the Mural festival) noticed there was a gap in the market.
Don’t Shoot The Directors Of HBO Yet Because Game Of Thrones Season 7 Is Coming (And Winter Too)
HBO FINALLY revealed a date for Game Of Thrones Season 7
Television networks nowadays are like my dating life. I flirt with some tv shows, I get to know them a little more and by the time i’m hooked; they’re gone like the wind.
This time around, the new season seems promising but there is a huge catch: they will produce only 7 episodes instead of the usual 10 episodes.
HBO explains their choice by the fact that they want to invest their budget to improve the quality of the upcoming episodes. Between me and you, if they manage to do something even more epic than that “Jon Snow Vs Ramsay Bolton” battle; we can give them a pass for keeping us waiting.
Game Of Thrones is the underground king of building suspense for its viewers (I mean literally). Every season was somekind of snippet of a middle age world war III with an eternal “Mixtape coming soon” vibe. I think we will finally see the end of the tunnel in this season.
The official launch date is july 16th and before we all start to chant “Winter Is Coming” like a national anthem, we have some predictions for the upcoming season!

Our Predictions For Game Of Thrones season 7
The Night’s King Will Die
This scary-ass-none-talking-3d-lookin-ass baddass BEEN around for too long!
Cersei Lannister Will Keep Her Place On The Iron Throne
She slept with her brother,walked naked through King’s Landing,killed her husband, pushed her son in the arm’s of a fake chick, murdered a whole church and so on.
As Sam Cooke would say “It’s been a long time coming” for Cersei and she ain’t ready to leave just yet.
Daenerys Targaryen Ain’t About That Life
Personaly I always had a hard time to take her seriously but I still hope that this season will show another side of her.
Jon Snow Will Be Jon Snow
Jon Snow is the human form of the “she loves me, she loves me not” game. Indecisive, self doubts and close-ups to his “WTF” faces because that’s what ladies like about him.
I think he might have the opportunity to take the Iron Throne but he won’t go for it because at the end : Jon Snow will always be Jon Snow.
Sansa Stark Will Have Something To Do
Sansa has to be the only character in history that became relevant to a show just because she got abused by a man.
It’s time to let Sansa Shine HBO!
Since it took a while for the new season to be annouced, we strongly suggest to catch up on the previous episodes. As every Game Of Thrones fan knows, it’s hard to keep up with names and the 10001 stories inside the main story!
What are your favourite moments of the show so far? What are your own predictions for Game Of Thrones season 7?

Death Note The Movie Is The New Netflix And Chill For Anime Fans
It’s About To Go Down!
Death Note The Movie Is Coming To Flip The Anime World Upside Down!
Since Marvel has been extremely successful in adapting their comics to television or movies, it’s only really right that our favourite mangas get the same treatement and Death Note the movie will definitely be something major (or not who knows)!
Many production companies were interested in adapting the popular manga but Netflix had the final say and here is how they teased us for the upcoming project:
Death The Movie Trailer
On commence ?

I personnaly feel think it’s a great idea that Netflix took over the production for the move. Since the “Narcos” days, I think Netflix proved that they can recreate scenarios and stick to the script to certain extents.
I must admit that I was a little bit disappointed by the cast and we’ll talk about that further in the article.
What Is Death Note?
Death Note is a story that evolves around the main character called Light Yagami. a high school student that discovers a powerful book in which he can kill anybody just by writting their name in it! Light then decide to use this book to eradicate criminality and become the god of this new world he tries to create.
What makes the anime even more incredible is the fact that Light’s father is actually the chief of police. This alone forces the character to find a way to go ahead with his plan and stay out of trouble (which is almost impossible at certain times).
Keith Stanfield As L
Nat Wolf As Light Yagami
Margaret Qualley As Misa Amane
Willem Dafoe As Ryuk
What Is Wrong About Death Note The Movie
There is currently a major controversy surrounding the cast of the movie. A lot of people are accusing Netflix of whitewashing the popular anime for american viewers. As you know Death Note is a japanese anime and unfortunately they didn’t take ANY asian actors for the upcoming movie.
I appreciate the fact the that they took Keith Stanfield to play “L” for black people’s representation although people complain alot about this choice. Regardless, I still think this movie was a major shot for an asian actor to prove that they can play something else than karate gurus of triad members (we need answers Netflix!).
I give them props for picking Willem Dafoe as Ryuk because this actor as the perfect facial features to play any bad guys at large (for real). He is naturally born for this; from green globlin in Spiderman to now a death god.
Nat Wolff as Light Yagami is a questionnable choice according to me. Light is confident, in control and an overall arrogant-king-joffrey-lookalike genius. Based on the trailer, it’s hard to tell if the Wolff will be able to recreate that aura.
The movie is supposed to be released August 25th this year and honestly I hope that Netflix understands that the overall fan base of the aniema as high expectations from this movie!
Tell us what do you think about Death Note’s storyline? Who’s your favorite character? Who should play Light Yagami according to you?
