Artwork: Drake – Best I Ever Had

itunesbestiever

This song was playing while I was out last night and it didn’t even hit me, but it was kind of a big deal. The song, along with So Far Gone, will be available on  iTunes shortly and even though this might not be your (my) favorite Drake song, I think we should all support it. If this song does crazy numbers on iTunes – which is really the indicator nowadays (sorry zShare) – like it did on the Billboard charts… it’ll show that artists don’t even that need that major label push anymore.  It might also convince him to go indie as he has hinted at in recent interviews, despite the outstanding deals he may have on the table.

As for the single’s image above, notice how it’s paying homage to the web culture we currently live in. If you come to this website then you know exactly what it’s referring to as well, where as other people may not. That also goes to show the net’s involvement in his rise, even though getting the track plays on Hot 97 had a huge part in it being this precise song blowing up, it’s still nice to see the web’s presence getting some acknowledgement .

Artwork by Darkie. Spotted at October’s Very Own. More on Boi-1da.

  10. Geronimo P Says:

    If Drake goes indie right now with his popularity, even if its just for one album, he is gonna cake the fuck up. Its not like he needs much of a machine behind him. He just needs to get in front of a camera and post that shit on a blog… the rest will work out.

    Joke of The Day:

    So, this bartender pulls up to his bar about 7:30 one morning and notices a kid sitting on the steps. He asks the kid,”Can I help you?’ Now this kid couldn’t have been more that 9-10 years old but he said,”Yeah, I’m waiting for the bar to open.” The bartender said,”Kid, you’re WAY TOO young to drink.” The kid pulls out an ID that says “21″ and it looks real so the bartender lets him in. The kid orders 14 martinis and starts drinking them one by one…FAST. The beerkeep says, “Whoa, kid. Slow down. You’re gonna hurt yourself. Why are you drinking so fast anyway?” The kid say,” I’m celebrating my first blowjob.” The bartender says.”Well, let me buy you the 15th maritni!!” The kid says, “If the first 14 didn’t wash the taste out of my mouth yet, then i don’t think that 15th one will either….”

    Happy Friday Nahgroes!!!

    He’s skinned 18 cats and then left them on the owners yard like a trophy.

    what about the Hz? is 60 Hz cool?

    ^ ^
    Yes, 1080p is Full HD and that is what you want. the picture is crisper because there are more vertical lines in the picture to promote a more detailed picture.

    Try to get a higher Hz than 60. I would go for 120Hz because the tv can keep up with faster movement in picture that may occur in an action movie or High Def video game.

    And as far as sound systems go from what I’ve experienced with my set up.
