Universal Records, this one’s for you. Young Money rapper Drake is not happy with his parent label Universal who apparently sent their wolves out to put a cease and desist on a pair of Drizzy records that’s been the talk of the Internet these past few weeks. The much hyped “Marvins Room” and “Trust Issues” are just two tracks to name that Drake is complaining have been swept off the digital space at the direction of Universal and he’s not happy about it.
“Universal needs to stop taking my f–king songs down” Drake angrily tweeted. “I am doing this for the people not for your label.”
Drake is stirring up serious interest in his upcoming sophomore effort Take Care with the rapper leaking a new track “Trust Issues” on his blog, now burning it’s way throughout the blogosphere. Shifting seamlessly between slow jam crooning and animated double-time rap verses, Drizzy has once again tapped in to the sound heavily present on his star-making mixtape So Far Gone and the R&B-tinged track is sonically similar to “Marvins Room” which the rapper leaked two weeks ago.
“Marvins Room” is another signature take on Drake’s sing-rap style with atmospheric production, light drums and subtle keyboard work. Reminiscent of some of the slower jams from his popular mixtape So Far Gone and his debut LP, Drake continues in the vein of a tortured lover on the emotionally charged track. The song finds Drake playing the role of line stepper as he pines for a taken woman all while trying to gain her affections. Upon the song’s release this morning, the track has spread throughout the Web with fans commenting in droves.
Drake also announced in the blog posting that the single will be available for purchase in July and that his album Take Care will see release on October 24, which also happens to be Drake’s birthday.
