#MoreLife IRL

Ah Drake. The 6ix city rap crooner has become one many love to hate. Perhaps it's the fact that he manages to say everything we're all thinking, but are too afraid to say. Or perhaps it's because he's made millions just talking about his feelings. In either case Drake has become the quintessential voice of the black millennial. From love, to heartbreak to lust, and the desire to just being successful - many of us can identify with his magnetic musical tales accompanied by that carefully crafted OVO sound. 

Like many of his previous projects Aubrey Graham manages to drop just the right music, at just the right time. Because in real life #MoreLife has become the motto for 2017. More passion, more love, more joy, more understanding and more humanity. We have found ourselves at the precipice of an abyss at this juncture in history. As human beings it is our duty to uplift humanity and to preserve life itself. Sometimes that starts with simply being present, and expressing gratitude for the air you breathe and the people and blessings that have brought you thus far. Now maybe our boy Drizzy wasn't thinking that deep. Or maybe - just maybe he's onto something...

Here's to #MoreLife IRL

Sincerely,

The Melanin Crew
