Over the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to work alongside some of the dopest rap writers out here. And one of them whose pen game I’ve always admired is Chicago’s own David Drake (above left). Sometime towards the latter months of my stint writing daily for Complex Music in 2012, Drake joined the channel’s full-time staff, and started making his presence felt on the site with a string of excellent interviews and think-pieces. For the most part, he seemed to have a different taste in rap music than I did—more trap than boom bap. But through our regular interactions— which included working together on a 50 Best Nas Verses list—he proved to have a unique appreciation and knowledge of my preferred side of the genre too, and hip-hop music and history overall. And his style of writing was truly impressive without him ever having to be too extra with it. To this day, I make sure to never miss a long-form article that he has published, regardless of the article’s subject.

Since we all enjoy high-quality rap writing here at NahRight, we asked David Drake—who also writes for top-notch publications such as the Chicago Tribune, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Pitchfork, and The Fader (he still contributes to Complex as well)—to share a short list of what he’s been listening to recently for our latest Heavy Rotation. It’s a proper follow-up to our last edition of the column which featured another superb rap writer Jeff Weiss, and it will most definitely give you some keen insight into a crop of tunes found slightly off the beaten path.
