For The Record: Is Drake’s ‘Dark Lane Demo Tapes’ Good Or Bad?

After a few recent SoundCloud releases and leaks, Drake dropped his latest project, ‘Dark Lane Demo Tapes,’ on Friday. The project, which serves as a precursor to Drake’s sixth official studio album, includes a mix of previously released tracks like “War” and “Chicago Freestyle,” and highly-anticipated collaborations like “Pain 1993.” Genius’ VP of Content Strategy Rob Markman held a discussion with Spotify’s Head of Urban Music Carl Chery, Hot 97 on-air personality DJ Megan Ryte, and Grass Routes Podcast co-host Brandon Hall to share their thoughts on the project. The panelists discussed their opinions on the totality of the project, how leaks impacted it, and Playboi Carti’s contribution to the tape.
