Saturday night has been a good one for Drake fans. Out of nowhere, he decided to release three never-before-heard songs on his blog, October’s Very Own. The first two, “Club Paradise” and “Free Spirit” featuring Rick Ross, were all originals that may or may not find their way onto Drake’s highly anticipated second album, Take Care, which is due out on his birthday, October 24. The third, however, showcases the 24-year-old Toronto native laying a verse over someone else’s song, marking the first time he has taken his talents to the canvas of a Lex Luger beat. Below, check out Drake’s remix of Waka Flocka Flame’s “Round of Applause,” the recently released first single off of the Atlanta rapper’s own sophomore effort, Triple F Life.
First Lex Luger beat I ever got to rap on…feel like I got seat B60 on Southwest…everybody has gone in before me…but we made it happen!
