‘Honestly, Nevermind’s Have Listeners Sharing Their Mixed Reactions

As the internet is still digesting Drake’s new, surprise release album filled with EDM and Dance Hall influences, Honestly, Nevermind’ mixed reactions are still flooding in. Many, however, have not been too excited about the rapper’s sharp turn sonically. Recently, on an episode of Joe Budden’s podcast, Vince Staples served his opinion on Drizzy’s latest release, comparing it to his own Big Fish Theory, originally released in 2017. 

Vince Staples reacts:

“You think Drake putting out a dance album gets us closer to the elimination of rap music as a whole”? The host asked Staples during the episode. Vince replied, “I did that in 2017, n*ggas was on me,”.

Staples mimicked his haters by adding, “That Big Fish Theory, n*ggas was mad at that, ‘What’s up with this n*gga?'”. Staples would describe Champagne Papi’s seventh studio album as something he appreciates for being “visual” to him, adding that artists spark certain moments and images in his brain, such as Michael Jackson and the late pop singer’s iconic moonwalk. 

“So when you think about where music is heading, everything is Instagram,” the Compton native continued. “Everything looks the same, everything moves the same, everyone dresses the same, everyone talks the same. So the genre shit is gonna have to go out the window eventually.”

Staples added, “It’s too hard to separate culture because the internet has kinda pushing everything in the same little bubble.”

‘Honestly, Nevermind’projected No. 1:

Drake and his entourage have been celebrating the release of the rapper’s latest project alongside DJ Khaled. Drake’s newest record is expected to debut at No. 1 on the charts. In celebratory fashion, Drake, Khaled, and company were seen taking over many hot spots in Miami, which is on-brand for some of modern hip hop’s royalty. Despite the mixed reactions about ‘Honestly, Nevermind’, the record sales will still pour in.
