Despite what the title may imply, Drake's new track required assistance from rappers 2 Chainz and Big Sean.
It's all rather hip hop and happening in the rap world right now as lyric-spitting titans can't wait to share new tracks with fans in 2013. We've had Kanye West's Yeezus, Jay Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail, Lil Wayne's I Am Not A Human Being II to name a minority but now we're sitting pretty waiting for Drake's upcoming September album and third studio effort, Nothing Was The Same.
Drake: Looking Forward To The Release Of Nothing Was The Same.
To keep us going until 17th September, Drake has dropped new single 'All Me' but, as you'll hear on the track, it wasn't all him. Drake called in buddies and fellow rappers 2 Chainz and Big Sean to embellish his latest song with some stirring accompaniment.

Wait until the second verse for 2 Chainz's eyebrow-raising brag: "And my d**k so hard it make the metal detector go off" and Big Sean rapping about what's going on in his life right now, referring to new girlfriend Naya Rivera "My new girl is on Glee and shit, probably making more money than me and shit", giving a nod to Jay Z with "I got 99 problems but a b***h ain't one."

Unencumbered by any fancy beatwork or musical obfuscation, the less-than-modest lyrics shine through. "My latest s**t is like a greatest hits" boasts Drake to a steady, metronomic time signature with the occasional clap effect or 'ting' noise to break up the narcissistic stream.

Who can really blame him for being all me, me, me? It's all go for the 26 year-old right now: 'All Me' arrives just a few days before Drake is set to kick off his annual OVO Fest in Toronto. However, according to MTV, The first day of the festival had to be cancelled earlier this week, when headliner Frank Ocean was forced to pull out due to damaged vocal cords.
