The ruler is still the ruler. And I’d love to say he’s back but a soulless, racist, and vengeful DA is doing his best to say otherwise. So this new loosie “Black Holocaust” is a reminder that Drakeo is the most innovative west coast stylist alive and the man should be free from racist shackles of the criminal justice system as you read this. Instead, they’re refiling the two remaining counts against him that, if convicted, could put Drakeo in jail for life.

In case you didn’t think this shit is regular though, “Black Holocaust” is a literal warm up. The verse is a freestyle Drakeo recorded before making “Mud Walkin’”, a standout from Cold Devil. It’s urgent claustrophobic street rap that gives Joog’s trademark sinister beat little room to breathe as Drakeo waxes poetic about his Pippy Longstocking and double parking the Bentley out front your mom’s house. Rio Da Yung OG gives a perfect fitting feature verse that demands we hear more of these two together. If only circumstances were better. 

We’ve got new Drakeo and that’s a great thing but Free the fucking Ruler.
