On his OVO Sound Beats 1 radio show, the Boy revealed this project only took six days to put together, likely because of hectic summertime schedules, and potential for cohesive moments between both artists are seldom reached, despite the mixtape being produced mostly by rising Atlanta producer Metro Boomin. Though some bangers, like "Big Rings" and "Jumpman," do their part to up the energy, they are cut between awkward outros, song themes that painfully misalign (like Future rapping about damaging drug use only for Drake to follow with flippant comments about annoying people) and rare examples of Drake unable to match his co-star.
If you're a fan of Future or Drake, there's a lot to love in this 11-track mixtape, especially the 6 God's closing piano track, "30 for 30 Freestyle," his production sidekick 40's only appearance. But while this project will likely infiltrate the Serato of many a nightclub DJ, there's little — outside the three or four cohesive, codeine-fuelled joints surprisingly carried mostly by Future — that reaches the potential of what What a Time to Be Alive could have been.
