Who remembers Lou Reed's review of Kanye West's Yeezus? Well, Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig has now reviewed Drake's current offering Nothing Was The Same via The Talkhouse -- a website where artists review albums from other artists. Giving the LP a "10 outta 10," Koenig shared his thoughts on "motherfuckers who never loved us," responding to the album standout "Worst Behavior." Koenig wraps his view on the piece around a recount on a fictional (?) story set in 2007 when the band opened for a Danish band and their lead singer Hans in Portland. Things went sour when Vampire Weekend played in New York City and Hans did not want to hang out with the band. Read an excerpt of the review below:
I gotta be honest — I didn’t listen to the whole thing. Obviously, it’s good. You think a Canadian child actor would be this successful as a rapper if he wasn’t good? The dude was sitting on 25 mil at age 25! (I would love to see some documentation on that, by the way. I’m not saying he didn’t have 25 mil, I’m just saying some of that was probably real estate and maybe like potential earnings from complicated endorsement deals.) People love him because he’s good! He gets 10 outta 10, OK?
I have heard SOME of it. I heard that one called “Worst Behaviour,” the “motherfuckers never loved us” one – it really struck a chord. There are SO many motherfuckers out there. I’ve been making music since I was seven years old (started with piano) so I’ve been betrayed more times than I can count. You know how many people talk shit behind your back and then try to be your best friend over the course of 22 years in the industry?? Drake only got into music like five years ago, so if you see how angry he is — IMAGINE HOW I FEEL.
