10 Best Lyrics From Drake and Future’s ‘What a Time to Be Alive’
First, Drake shocked the world with the surprise release of his If You're Reading This, It's Too Late album in February. The project still boasts the largest opening weekend in sales for the year. In the time since, he's launched a successful radio show on Apple Music's Beats 1, dominated a beef with Meek Mill ("yeah, you gettin' bodied by a singin' n----") and released countless one-off tracks like "Hotline Bling."
Future has been a steady presence throughout the year as well. He released the Beast Mode and 56 Nights mixtapes to great reception and released his best album yet when he dropped DS2 a few months back. Gucci flip flops, double cups and real sisters have taken on a whole new meaning.
What a Time to Be Alive is the victory lap of Drake and Future's recent successes. It's neither rapper's best effort this year, but it doesn't need to be. It's a solid collection of tracks boasting some of the best production from Metro Boomin, Southside and 40, among others, that you'll hear all year. Even if their verses aren't quite as refined as their solo work, they still drop some heat on occasion. Here are the 10 Best Lyrics from Drake and Future's What a Time to Be Alive.
