Here Are All the Smart-Dumb Bars from Drake's 'VIEWS'

“I’m a staple in the game, all my paper's together”

Drake's new album VIEWS is officially out, and it is definitely an album. An album full of songs. Songs full of rapping and singing. Rapping and singing that is full of words and emotions. Words and emotions that are sometimes serious but sometimes silly. We've been listening rabidly to the album since the release overnight, and we're struck as much by the bars that sat well as the ones that didn't. Here are all the quirky lines and bad puns from VIEWS that are bound to clog up the feeds of your favorite Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter basics in the days to come. BADMAN TING INNIT.
