When we get on the phone, it's only been 18 hours since Drakeo the Ruler 's first mixtape of the year dropped. Even though the South Los Angeles rapper doesn't sound like he's in a celebratory mood, he says the project surpassed his expectations. Released on February 24th, The Truth Hurts is crisp, ominous, and darkly funny. Drakeo deploys nursery rhymes and Disney metaphors to unload coded shots with his signature West Coast cool. "It's work, but I try to have fun with it too," he says of rapping. "It's like a sport to me." Drakeo even left his comfort zone by making "Talk to Me," an anti-love love song with Drake . The song marks the first collaboration between the similarly named artists. Drakeo hopes it's not the last.
