Music Review: Forever - Drake ft. Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Eminem

Speed: 80 bpm

The DJ’s Take: Another case of sticking a bunch of A-list artists together and seeing what happens. Lot of hype surrounding this track, but I think it’s pretty forgettable. Production is generic, lyricism is run-of-the-mill. If you’re a hiphop dj, put it on your mixtape. If you like the artists, put it on your iPod. But in my opinion, this just doesn’t have the crossover appeal to engage anyone except for serious rap fans.

On a sidenote, if you’re a dj making a mix, try this track with Run This Town, This Is Why I’m Hot, Turnin Me On and All The Above. Similar bpm, similar key, easy 15 minutes.
