When asked if he was looking forward to Drake’s new album, music journalist and hip-hop enthusiast Charlamagne Tha God said that no, he’s not. He explained:
“No… for all the same reasons we love Kendrick [Lamar]. Kendrick makes us wait, Kendrick gives us something to look forward to. Kendrick takes his time–.”
The podcaster was cut off by his co-host asking if Drake hadn’t released the Dark Lane Demo Tapes, if would be more excited. He replied that he just doesn’t know if Drake can out-do himself at this point.

“Drake has given us so much music that I don’t know if he has another gear,” added Charla. “We know Kendrick has another gear. He shows us that with every project. Drake has given us so much, I don’t know if he has another gear so, therefore, I’m not looking forward to anything. Let me ask y’all a question: are we still in the Drake era? Or is radio such a prehistoric form of media that it hasn’t changed the temperature to what’s actually going on out here in these streets? It still feels like we’re in a Drake era– I don’t think we’re in a Drake era, I don’t think we’ve been in a Drake era for the past three or four years.”
Do you think it’s still Drake’s era or has somebody else taken the charge?
