Drake’s Canadian accent took n***as to the toolshed in “Behind Barz.”
Everyone knows that Drake is at his best when he’s on some kill-a-rapper s**t. With that being said, in “Behind Barz,” the 33-year old goes ham, reminding the world how much of a real n***a he is through a steady flow, an authentic Canadian accent, and trill lyrics.
You know what I love about this song? It’s heinous-sounding, as it features this dark instrumental, but at the same time, it has this level of fragility to it that is glaring. It’s almost like Drake wanted to let the world know he was winning the streets, but in the process, he unintentionally came across as human. Only Drake can come across as ‘human’ on a song meant for the streets.
I say we remake “Shottas,” adding Drake into a bunch of the movie’s important scenes.
