Why is Drake’s ‘care package’ so popular?
As opportunistic as the release of Care Package is, the reminder of Drake’s work at the margins during his most prolific creative period is a timely one. The compilation layers history upon history, creating a dense nostalgia. We may no longer have the Drake from five or 10 years ago, but we’ll always have the memories.
What is care package by Kendrick Lamar?
In that same spirit comes Care Package, an odds-and-ends set that collects tracks that were originally released between 2010 and 2016. It’s an accessible time capsule, a concise document of his growth as a musician and a primary source for his OVO imprint’s signature sound, which has since anchored multiple careers.

How does Drake’s memory work?
During his creative peak, from 2011’s Take Care through 2015’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, Drake processed his memory through his music. He plumbed the depths of his skyrocketing stardom, processing it all with a weary stream-of-consciousness. It was almost as if he was rapping names, places, and scenes as a way to remember them.
Rap or Go to the League, 2 Chainz
Five albums deep into a hard-earned but now glittery career, it was beginning to feel ambitious to ask for anything superseding pretty girls and trap music from 2 Chainz.
Ventura, Anderson .Paak
Whereas Oxnard, Anderson .Paak’s funkdafied and untamed Aftermath debut, proves a more risky and compelling listen, it’s also a little all over the map. Ventura, its more focused and groovy counterpart, skips along lovely with bubbly soul jams that could cruise down Highway 1 in a convertible and still make everything sunny in Philly in the 1970s.
Unfuccwitable, Asian Da Brat
Since pulling her hat out of the Doll circle earlier this year, the artist formerly known as Asian Doll has proven that her appeal goes beyond a name. Her first project under her new moniker, Asian Da Brat, serves as a reminder of her star potential.
Escape From New York, Beast Coast
This past spring, Joey Bada$$, his Pro Era team, Flatbush Zombies and the Underachievers consummated the formation of their Beast Coast supergroup with Escape From New York, a cohesive collection of head-nodding posse cuts with tight production, dexterous rhyming and clever wordplay.
The Plugs I Met, Benny The Butcher
There’s a new kingpin in coke rap, and his name is Benny The Butcher. The Griselda Records rapper, fresh off of his brilliant 2018 project, Tana Talk 3, keeps his white lines of the most premium grade on the anticipated follow-up.
Everythings for Sale, Boogie
Boogie is warring with his reflection, and the Compton poet’s bedroom mirror has been dragged out on the front lawn for everyone to see.
Baby on Baby, DaBaby
Guided by DaBaby’s bulletproof baritone, distinctive Southern drawl and energetic production, Baby on Baby is a dense, 32-minute collection of high-octane raps that don’t give you time to escape the charisma of its host.
