Vampire Weekend’s Ezra “Reviews” Drake’s New Album, Drops ‘Motherfucker’ 9 Times

Written by Mike Hohnen on October 10, 2013

For the latest entry posted on The Talkhouse, a website dedicated to artists reviewing albums released by their fellow artists, Vampire Weekend’s frontman Ezra Koenig tackles Drake’s latest album Nothing Was The Same and despite his indie swag and hipster integrity, Koening liked what he heard.

Despite confessing, “I didn’t listen to the whole thing,” Koening does his best to critique the album, sort of, before getting sidetracked by things that are more related to him and his own band. The brief, brief review begins with some sound logic as to why Drake has been so successful:

“Obviously, it’s good. You think a Canadian child actor would be this successful as a rapper if he wasn’t good? The dude was sitting on 25 mil at age 25!”

Koenig then goes on to rate the whole album a straight up 10 out of 10, though it seems to be a fairly reluctant decision. “People love him because he’s good! He gets 10 outta 10, OK?”

Getting down to brass tacks, Koenig provides somewhat of a review but fails to really make any actual point…but we’ll listen anyway:

“I heard that one called ‘Worst Behaviour,’ the ‘motherfukers never loved us’ one – it really struck a chord. There are SO many motherfukers out there. I’ve been making music since I was seven years old (started with piano) so I’ve been betrayed more times than I can count.

“You know how many people talk shit behind your back and then try to be your best friend over the course of 22 years in the industry?? Drake only got into music like five years ago, so if you see how angry he is — IMAGINE HOW I FEEL,”

And that’s about the last reference to Drake or his album in the ‘review’. The rest of the essay is centered around an anecdote involving a mysterious man called Hans who played in a band that supported Vampire Weekend while on tour in Portland. Interesting, if true.

The highlight of the review will have to be the fact that Koening finds room for nine ‘motherfuckers’. NINE! Respect.
