Surprise! Drake Just Released a New Album

That's how all the cool kids share their music these days, after all.

Just like that, Drake dropped a 17-track-long mixtape last night via his website. "If You're Reading This It's Too Late" is still available, in part, for your auditory pleasure as SoundCloub embeds via Drake's blogspot, October's Very Own, though somebody should probably clue him in about Tumblr to be honest. (T-Swift, are you available?) It's also available to purchase, in full, via iTunes

It's unclear what effect, if any, this will have on the planned release of Drake's new album Views From The 6, which is still reportedly scheduled for later this year—particularly as a few of the newly-released tracks feature "6" in their titles, which seems deliberately thematic. Maybe he's just made a ton of great music recently.

In fresh beef served up, the album includes a sharp diss at rapper Tyga, who's gone on the record as being no friend of Drake in the past. A verse in the bonus track "6 p.m. in New York" reads "it's so childish calling my name on the world stage, you need to act your age and not your girl's age." Burn.
