The City Is Drake's

I have to give credit where credit is due and the new track "The City Is Mine" by T-dot's own Drake AKA Aubrey Graham isn't half bad (yeah he's the dude from Degrassi).

Despite the bare bones beat and Laffy Taffy inspired styling, the production is on point and sounds like it can compete with anything the States have to offer. Which, arguably, is the standard Canadian rappers should strive for. It's quite obvious that Drake -- unlike some others who segue from TV to music -- takes this pretty seriously.

Not bad for a dude from a cheesy Canadian television show.
