Drake’s “Nothing Was the Same” Album Leaked, Let’s Start Listening…
Well...apparently Drake finished recording, because by Sunday night Aubrey Graham's third album was all over the internet like a Kardashian sex tape. Now, before we move on, let me say that to some degree I agree with J. Cole, first listen reviews are fucking up hip-hop. But let's be real; there's the release date, and then there's the leak date, and in 2013 it's the leak date that matters.
I learned during the "Yeezus" leak that posting the album so all of RefinedHype Nation could listen and discuss it was actually really dope. Over the days, as I listened and listened again, I found some comments really changing my mind, or at least making me think about certain songs in different ways. It's kind of like the internet version of listening to an album with all your homies and debating it.
So let's all crack up a drink or two (or a coffee if you're opening this in the morning) and get to listening and commenting. As I type this I literally haven't listened to more than the 30 seconds snippets as I was grabbing the YouTube streams, so I'll be starting fresh along with y'all.
Streams are below the tracklist, here's the pre-order link for those motivated to officially cop. You can listen in that handy-dandy player below. Enjoy, or what not...

Is this a classic? Where does it place Drake on the "Rap Power Rankings>"? Is he worthy of a consensus #1 Rap Fantasy Draft pick? What lines will be turned into memes? We might as well start figuring this shit out now, have at it people...
