People are drooling over a leak of Drake rapping over a Lauryn Hill sample.
A veritable bootleg of Drake rapping over a Lauryn Hill sample has put the Twitterverse on instant notice. Drake was in the headlines yesterday as news broke of his next single being close to complete. Fact remains, fans have yet to grow tired of his last offering. The information leak which brought about the title “Showin Off,” has sparked a goose hunt for rough stencils. Lucky enough for fans, a real roughshod version of the single has emerged.
In the audio clips making the rounds on Twitter, drake repeats the chorus : “You’re showin’ off, but it’s alright. You’re showin’ off, but it’s alright and it’s a short life,” over what appears to be a sample of Lauryn Hill’s “Ex Factor.”
Drake has long expressed his admiration for Lauryn Hill, having previously sampled “Doo-Wop (That Thing)” on “Draft Day,” and inviting her on stage at 2014’s OVO Fest in Toronto. Drake certainly has a knack for putting his paw prints on nearly everything in sight, but all will be forgiven if he can somehow pull the legendary Ms. Hill out for a tune-up. All the media associated with this news leak must be taken at face value, until stamped with authenticity.
