Little Brother & Dwele) B!#ch is Crazy : The Last Hope (Feat. Boasting a staggering twenty-three tracks and guest appearances from Trey Songz, Kardinal Offishall, Rich Boy, Malice, Phonte, Elzhi, and Lil Wayne, Comeback Season largely finds Drizzy jacking for beats like a true disciple of the mixtape era. It is the third track on his second official mixtape Comeback Season (2007). Comeback Season is the second official mixtape from Canadian rapper Drake.
With a new album on the way and a CN Tower lit up in his honor, Comeback Season captures an era when the 6ix God was a mere mortal -- and what a time it was to be alive. Take for instance, some of Comeback Season’s stronger cuts, like “The Presentation.” The lush track features a glimmer of a hard-spitting, streetwise emcee, and while most of it falls flat (“I need drug money/Who’s got drug money?” is a capital L, even for 6 God standards), Drake’s confident, smoother self was clearly evident before “Ignant Shit” off So Far Gone. Let’s be blunt: Drake’s Comeback Season isn’t great. To this day, there are some who still tout "Closer" as a turning point for Drizzy. With Ray Liotta, Shaun Sipos, Glenne Headly, Rachel Blanchard. And maybe it's for the better, though that's certainly up for debate.
Thirteen years ago, a young Drake made a strong impression with his second-ever mixtape "Comeback Season." While Drake of late is more likely to jack a style than emulate one, his penchant for modeling his flow after his heroes (Jay, Wayne, Kanye) is apparent on tracks like “Going in for Life.” Boasting, “if Hov is Jordan, I guess I’m cool with Pippen/’til I mention I wanna play a new position,” Drake’s already set the stage for his mythos, and cooly positioned himself as a G.O.A.T. Let’s be blunt: Drake’s Comeback Season isn’t great. Jarrel the Young Delivers Acoustic Bliss with “Virtue 1 Medley”, Why ‘The Mortuary Collection’ is Worthy of Halloween Viewing, What RZA Taught Me About Creating a ‘Double Feature’, Here’s Why You’re Wrong About Trump’s Impeachment, Pusha-T Is Marlo Stanfield in a Gentrified Rap World, How An Overlooked Prince Sample Took Arrested Development’s “Tennessee” To Another Place, Why Atlanta Still Needs Some ‘Soul Food’ From Goodie Mob 25 Years Later. Ditto for Drizzy’s Hov fantasies. He’d continue to build that prophecy through So Far Gone and especially on Thank Me Later, when he set the stage for one of Jay’s best guest verses on “Light Up,” perfected the Drizzy iteration on Take Care’s “Under Ground Kingz,” and popped off on stream-of-consciousness lyrical tour-de-forces on “5 A.M./6 P.M. in Dallas/New York.”. Released some time in 2006-2007, with Drake's star shining brighter than ever right now, the galaxies are now aligned for those lookin to cop an official physical of "Comeback Season." The album’s slow-jams, typically underpinned by his early mentor Trey Songz, were often forgettable, which is incredible to consider once So Far Gone’s opening trio of “Lust for Life,” “Houstatlantavegas,” and “Successful” (followed in later years by “Hold On, We’re Going Home” and “One Dance”) dropped.

Intent on pursuing a career in music, he left the series in 2007 after releasing his debut … The majority of its production (J. Dilla, Kanye West, and 9th Wonder, notwithstanding) sounds like a one-dimensional rattle clanging out the speakers of a Motorola Razr. He even tries his hand at a Kanye classic, bodying "Barry Bonds" with charisma and a sharpened ear for punchlines.

Comeback Season, Drake’s second mixtape and his last before his breakout hit, ‘Best I Ever Had’, is an intimate look at a guy who’s become known for intimate looks.

Each author is writing from their experience based off a fresh listen — whether they missed the record in the first place or haven’t touched the record in a while. What interested me the most is how the project provided a character outline that Drake would continue to fill in over the next several years. While my early impression of Drake was that he was a soft R&B-rapper hybrid, Comeback Season sounded more like a rapper trying to find his footing than someone trying to straddle the two genres.

It’s a largely forgettable mixtape, made possible by its artist becoming arguably the biggest rapper in the world.
