When he said Thank me later he meant LATER. People, we have a release date. I mean a real one and I may be late posting the news but I’m selfish and I didn’t want to share. So what? Anyways, June 15 I will be sitting outside of some music establishment waiting to pick up the MUCHHHH anticipated album from the man himself, Drake. Actually I’m going to try and preorder it cause if I go to best buy and it’s sold out; I don’t even want to think about it. I’ve been a drake fan since he was rocking the baby fro, hooping and smashing Ashley on Degrassi, pre wheelchair. So I’m not new to drake and I’m not going into detail about how I’ve know about this cat for years. What I will say is its about damn time. Those of us who have been riding with drake since “City is Mine” and can remember the first time drake ever said “Nigga” have been waiting for this moment FOR-EV-ER. So to tide you over till this momentous date arrives, we're gonna go through some of my personal favorite Drake songs.

"Where Girls Become Exes From Summer's Caught Ho'in"

Everyone knows winter is that "boo-lovin, cakin, let me get a cuddle buddy" weather but as soon as the "fast ass, hoe creatin, aint gone tie me own" season aka Summer hits, realtionship deace to exist. Drake plays out this type of scenerio in "Come Winter."

"Cause I just see my ex-girl, Standing with my next girl, Standing with the girl that i'm fuckin right now."

Honestly did you really think that I wasn't going to have this on here. The whole inspiration for my website came from this song.  if you can't Say Whats Real, what can you do? Nothing.

"Especially when the lights so bright and the money so right. And it's comin' in every single night. She don't wanna leave, she just stuck in.."

SO despite the fact that probably everyone thinks this song is about stripping, the underlining meaning tells the story of a girl trying to make better for herself. You think she wants to strip? Hell No, but she's has too, moneys good and its going to get her out of "Houstalantavegas" and on to where she wants to be eventually. Story of my life minus the stripping element.

"I'm more than just an option, Hey, Hey, Hey"

With the production from the undeniable talented Kanye, this records goes TOO hard. The beat will make you catch yourself thinking you can dance reggae. A fast relationship record that everyone can relate to. You know we've all though "I Just gotta see that person, one more time." I honestly have to say this is one of my favorite Drake songs and not just because for a split second in the video I caught Drake trying to groove in the studio.

Friends, how many of us have them?? really.

Lets get straight to the point.  WTF is a friend these days? Why do we gravitate to the people we call “friends”? Is it because we share similarities or is it because our differences fill the voids for each other? Is it because we genuinely care about them as a friend or is it the friendship has become so routine that not being their friend that we can’t imagine not being friends with them?  Are they the ones who will do anything to make sure we have fun, like peer pressure you into taking drugs just to make the night one to remember, (btw all of these questions also apply to relationships but that’s another entry for another day. maybe not the last one. or may so, stranger shit has happened.) Recently I feel as though the question of long lasting friendships have come up. I love my friends and when I say friends I don’t mean the people who text me once a month asking a random question, the ones who shout” I MISS YOU” on Facebook or twitter but won’t answer my text messages or the ever so often acquaintances. I’m talking about that genuine, true blue, “Girl I’m with you if they get you they get me!” Rihanna G4L style friends. Lately I’ve encountered a couple different friends.

The “Distance Friend” this is the friend that when you two are 4000 miles away there all about missing you. That is until you get home. Then they’re GHOST until you leave again and the cycle continues. Rinse wash and repeat style.

The “Its always us” friend. this is the friend that when it comes down to it, you two always end up together not even by choice, not that it matters cause you know at the end of the day it’s going to be you. Because of this you and this friend end up in the most random predicaments, once again not that it matters because you know that’s going to happen too.

The “Exempt from friend rules” friend. This is the friend that you can talk to in January and not talk to again till mid march and it’s like you never stopped talking. You and this friend are usually on two different paths in life so you excuse each other from the regular rules of friendship because you understand they have way different shit going on than you.

Lastly the “Why are we even friends?” friend. Exactly what the title of this friendship is. You have no reason why your friends with them but you just are. Not saying there is anything wrong with being there friend its just you don’t really have a reason why you guys are friends.

Is friendship is one of those unexplainable life mysteries that were never going to know the answer??? Perhaps. Maybe we just gravitate towards the people we are friends with just because. No rhyme or reason, you and I are just friends because we are. Maybe that’s the bottom line with friendships. When someone figures it out let me know, until then I’ll be piecing together my friendships to figure out the true meaning. Or I’ll just take a nap.
