In attempt to take power from online hackers Drake released three new tracks over the weekend. This comes quickly after the success of highly popular tracks like “Believe Me” featuring Lil Wayne and “0 to 100/ Catch Up.”
Drake has been known for making tracks for mixtapes, but most people were looking for a full length album. The success of the summer tracks has led people to believe that a new album is about to surface. Hackers apparently had access to these tracks, according to Drake, so he released the songs in advance.
The songs, “Heat of the Moment,” “6 God,” and “How Bout Now” are tracks that have been placed on the Oversound.com website. Drake brakes out all the stops with everything from Jodeci samples to hardcore beats from his regular production by Boi-lda. I streamed them on my FreedomPop tablet and I must say Drake’s blowing the door off hip hop.
Drake has been known to release tracks during the month of October since the very beginning of his career. The release comes during a time where hackers have been especially busy. The Taylor Swift album was leaked several days before it was released. Drake made the decision to clear the rumors about new album leaks. He detered hackers that thought they had access to an EP.
