I think people are rightly criticizing that five albums in he shows little to no personal growth
I've said this tons of times. Folks don't wanna hear it. They will be quick to point out other artists like Spitta for example, who cranks out the same shit all the time. The difference with Drake in comparison to the field is that he's supposedly "the best." Drake has been making the same album for years now. You know what to expect & for An artist of his caliber we have a right to want more. He's not creative or innovative.
Here we go again with J. Cole being the point of reference for a comparison. Lets just get this outta the way, Cole can rap about anything. Drake cannot and has shown he can't. That literally debunks the claims he's shown no growth.
