Fans React to 'For All the Dogs'

The verdict is in. Fans have weighed in on For All the Dogs and the reviews are mixed. While die-hard fans raved about the album, others shared their disappointment in Drake's latest release.

"Glad to hear that Drake is taking a long break from music," one listener wrote on Twitter. "The output has been impressive but the musical quality has mostly been subpar. For All the Dogs is another mediocre effort."

"He laughed at Kendrick [Lamar] taking five years off but it's what he needs now more than ever," they went on.

The comment came from none other than Drake's longtime nemesis Joe Budden's booking manager. Unsurprisingly, Budden added his two cents, too.

Drake and Joe Budden's 'For All the Dogs' beef explained

Following the release of For All the Dogs, Budden took to his podcast to share his review of the project. And he didn't hold his tongue.

The retired rapper criticized Drake's newly released album, suggesting that the Toronto MC is “rapping for the kids” and should consider creating content that resonates with older listeners.

“He rappin’ for the children. Yo dog, I had to look up how old this n---a was when I finished listening to the album,” Budden said. “You are 36. Your birthday is in 20 days. I Googled that, too. You’re going to be 37 years old. Get the f--k away from some of these younger n---as. And stop f--king these 25-year-olds.”

He continued: “I want to hear adult Drake rapping for adult people. He’s rapping for the kids, the streams, the accolades. He ain’t trying to rap for me. I accept that.”

Needless to say, the commentary did not sit well with Drizzy. After he caught wind of Budden's criticism, Drake took to Instagram where he fired off a scathing response. “[Joe Budden], you have failed at music,” he began.

“You left it behind to do what you are doing in this clip cause this is what actually pays your bills. For any artist watching this just remember you are watching a failure give their opinion on his idea of a recipe for success — a quitter give their opinion on how to achieve longevity,” the rapper's message went on.

The 6 God added, “You switched careers cause the things that pop into your brain had you broke living [check] to [check] and the raps you write had 450 men showing up to your shows in dusty Enyce jeans to screw up their face to Mood Muzik 29 and pretend you are the goat.”

Shots. Fired.

So, where does this album stand in Drake's discography? It's up to you to decide!
