Drake's popularity has greatly increased since the release of his Grammy-award winning second album 'Take Care.' His new song is an autobiographical tale that is backed by eerie piano beats and plenty of percussion. The song is catchy, but not as powerful as some of his past successful singles. Drake specifically discusses his early life and the beginning of his career. Ultimately he boasts that "now we're here." There is a lot of flow in his lyrics and rhymes; it is clear Drake has supplanted himself as one of the most talented hip-hop artists in the industry. He says, "We don't like to do too much explaining. Story stays the same through the money and the fame."
A few days ago, Drake too home the award for Best Rap Album for 'Take Care.' His next effort should be released later this year. Listen to 'Started from the Bottom' right now on AOL Radio's New Hip-Hop First.
