 "More Life" by Drake is easily his most versatile album to date. He does the usual things that have made him the huge success he is today like rapping with a strong flow and riding the beat on songs like "Free Smoke" and "Do Not Disturb", but then Drake ventures into other genres of music which you aren't used to hearing him in. 

Although these new music ventures are unfamiliar, Drake pulls them off with ease; songs like the house track "Get it Together", or the dance tracks like "Passionfruit" and "Madiba Riddim" show how comfortable Drake is going into these other genres and expanding his grip on music culture. 

On this album, Drake shows that he is trying to be a global icon as well and conquer the rap game in more places than just the United States; he links up with United Kingdom rapper Giggs twice on the album for songs "KMT" and "No Long Talk" and Drake even adopts Giggs' slang and cadence. 

Drake shows off his versatility as an artist by rapping on the album, singing melodies, and speaking on very personal things in his life; these are all the traits that have made Drake a fan favorite in the music scene. 

"More Life" is an album that is guaranteed to make any Drake fan entertained while listening to the twenty-two-track project. My personal favorites are tracks "Blem", "Do Not Disturb", and "Portland" amongst others. It has something for everyone; you're bound to find something on the album that you'll like. For its many styles, its variety and it's replay value, I give "More Life" a solid four-and-a-half stars.
