Drake Releases New EP 'For All the Dogs Scary Hours Edition'

Without too much notice, Drake has released For All the Dogs Scary Hours Edition, the next entry in his Scary Hours EP series. Informally called Scary Hours 3, the new project features six songs that Drake says he wrote in the time since For All the Dogs came out last month.

Producers for the project include Lil Yachty, the Alchemist, Boi-1da, Vinylz, Ovrkast, and Conductor Williams. J Cole appears on the new song “Evil Ways.” Drake also makes a reference to Taylor Swift's sales record on the song "Red Button" (“Taylor Swift the only n---a I ever rated/Only one could make me drop the album just a little later/Rest of y’all I treat you like you never made it”), and continues his feud with Kanye West in the same song. ("Every time that Yeezy call the truce he had my head inflated/Thinking we gon’ finally peace it up and get to levitating/Realized that everything premeditated.”)

The project also features the Alchemist-produced track “Wick Man,” which has been hypothesized as the latest bars aimed at his long feud with Pusha T. “Man, I remember n---as was jokin’ ’bout some tick tick/And now that rapper broke as f--k, that boy a statistic/Empty clips.”

Drake also released a Scary Hours 3 trailer to promote the EP. In the clip, he says, "I feel no need to appease anybody. I feel so confident about the body of work that I just dropped that I know I could go disappear for, whatever, six months, a year, two years—even though I’m not really, like, into the super lengthy disappearances for the sake of mystery. But, you know, ultimately, it’s coming to me in a way that I haven’t experienced maybe since, like, If You’re Reading This, where it’s just kind of like I feel like I’m on drugs. I feel like I’m in that mental state without doing anything. I did those songs in the last five days. I didn’t have one bar written down for those songs on the night that For All the Dogs dropped. It’s not like I’m picking up from some unfinished s--t, you know? This is just, it’s happening on its own. And, you know, who am I to fight it, right?"
