11 Songs, 40 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Recorded in six days, this mixtape might not have been given the time to alchemise two of hip-hop’s dominant personalities into game-changing sounds, but it does have the spontaneous, energising snap of a mutually appreciative high-five. It’s largely shaped from the icy, mid-paced trap Future trades in but Drake brings bullish sparkle to “Jumpman” and “Big Rings”, while both MCs sound invigorated by their partnership as they slam the haters, confess their own doubts and, on “Plastic Bag”, salute the hard work of strippers.
