While an actual surprise drop is quite exciting, even more exciting is the fact that Drizzy is rapping—like, really, actually spitting—on "Diplomatic Immunity." (Unfortunately, Killa Cam, Juelz Santana, and Jim Jones don't make a guest appearance.)

Remember last fall, when Dave East bragged about Drake being one of the best rappers? Yeah, he was talking about this guy.

Following the release of More Life last spring, Drake vowed to take some much needed time off from recording and releasing new material. Several months later, though, the Canadian hitmaker released "Signs," a would-be summer smash that never received a push by OVO, and then revealed that he was already back in the studio, already crafting a brand new album in his hometown of Toronto.

By the sound of (half of) this two-pack of new songs, the break was both much needed and has already proven to be fruitful.

Drake SZN has returned, ladies and gents. Who's ready for another 430 straight weeks on the charts?
