Drake – 0 to 100 / The Catch Up [Audio]

Toronto, ONDrake has really gotten into this whole dropping-unannounced-track releases thing. Earlier on this evening, the Drizzynator dropped a new surprise single entitled “0 to 100/ The Catch.”

Unlike those sentimental emotions-inducing tracks we got back in April (you know; the bromance-y “Draft Day” ode to Johnny Football, and the even more intimate “Days In The East”), this track goes off in a completely different direction. This is straight-up Drake flex. And that whole “0 to 100” thing? Is it just me, or is that kind of like the numeric-equivalent of “Started From The Bottom”? The track was produced by Boi-1da, with co-production courtesy of 40 and Nineteen85 (and additional drum programming by Noël). Check it out below.

Right off the bat, Drake’s all like, “F*ck being on some chill shit.” And that’s when you know that the Champagne Papi means serious business. He proceeds to single himself out as a rap game Forrest Gump (“Ugh, I run this shit/ They like “Go Forrest/ Run Forrest/ Run Forrest/ Go Forrest”). Then we get into “The Catch Up” part of the track and Drake gives cross-promotional daps to the rest of his crew (“PND droppin’/ Reps-up P droppin’/ Majid droppin’/ OB droppin’/ Not to mention me droppin'”). And it all winds down with Drizzy telling us: “I’m only gettin’ better.” Which is a step-up from his less confident “I’m only gettin’ older” lines (circa: “Trust Issues”).

Oh. By the way, I lied. This track isn’t all flex. Drake briefly opens up to us about his dad during “0 to 100.” And emotions happen: “Since my dad used to tell me he was comin’ to the house to get me/ He ain’t show up/ Valuable lesson, man/ I had to grow up.”
