War Pain

That many people have done one now it can only be a matter of time until it's MY turn to do a Drake diss-track. Run-of-the-mill as these have become, I'm still digging 'War Pain' if only cos it sounds so tough — perfect chassis-rumbling riddims and nothing but a drone of string, a sense of druggy doom providing the backdrop to Meek's sky-high slander and rage. It's tall as the hotel room it comes from. Meek's a rapper I never listen to lounging, or repeatedly, but the moment I hear a track it's frequently compelling — and this one actually has some limited replay value. Wins the round on points.
