Drake fans are eating good today, as the rapper dropped a new mixtape last night and announced a release timeframe for his next studio album.

At midnight, the Toronto MC released Dark Lane Demo Tapes, a 14-song collection featuring guest performances from Playboi Carti, Future, Young Thug, and more. The tape also includes Drake’s chart-topping “Tootsie Slide,” which became a TikTok sensation last month. All of this should tie fans over until the 6 God releases his new studio album this summer, his first since 2018’s Scorpion.

Predictably, listeners almost instantly flocked to Twitter to share their thoughts on Dark Lane Demo Tapes. Some called it fire; some called it trash; many shared memes. Here are some of the best Drake memes related to Dark Lane Demo Tapes.

Drake memes: The best reactions to Dark Lane Demo Tapes

One of the most highly anticipated tracks on Dark Lane Demo Tapes was Drake’s long-rumored Playboi Carti collaboration, “Pain 1993.”

Unfortunately, many listeners were less than impressed with Carti’s nonsensical baby-talk verse.

Carti verse aside, fans seem pretty happy with Drake’s latest project. Listeners may be stuck inside for the time being, but if that changes by midsummer, you can count on Drake lyrics adorning Instagram captions for as far as the eye can see.
