“It’s a Jungle out There”, Declares Drake

Submitted by on February 13, 2015 – 9:08 amNo Comment


In celebration of Black History month, Drake drops “Jungle”. Released through the OVO blog early Thursday morning, “Jungle” offers glimpses of Drake’s life. We begin in the present, with the Torontonian rapper discussing the current state of hip-hop and his concerns for what its future holds for him. The audience is then transported back in time to Drake’s youth, complete with adorable family videos, cross -fade. The video cuts back into the present for a hypnotic trip through his beloved Toronto at night. Along the way, a series of new tracks are teased, but no release information is available.

The opening scene is intense and brutally honest. As Drake longingly looks out the window. “Shit’s just crazy man, the whole energy out here is just changing, you know. It’s just getting dark, man, quick,” Drake says as the car weaves up into the Hollywood Hills. He adds moments later: “I’m drinking more. I’m smoking more. We’re out here staying up so late that it’s early, like fuck. I’m not losing it though; I’m just venting. I’m not worried. It’s already too late for these guys, trust me. I’m just more worried about myself. You know? I just gotta come home.” Then we end up at the top of Mulholland, looking out over the city. At the very end of the short film Drake is awoken from his slumber, by his boy rapping on the glass, he is then then left to his own devices to drive himself home.
