You don't live under a rock, and are therefore aware that Jay Z's 4:44 has generated a buttload of buzz in the 18 or so hours that it's been available on Tidal so far. Hov's 13th studio album has generated plenty of positive reactions from fans and public figures, a well as his peers.
Speaking of peers, Drake walked into a Baltimore restaurant on Thursday night/Friday morning and requested that the business pump it out on their speakers, which certainly beats listening to it on the train or in a cubicle while pretending to get some work done.
According to the Baltimore Sun, the public listening party went down at Azumi at Harbor East (so if you're an area resident who decided to cancel your plans there at the last second you can now quietly say “Fuck, dude,” to yourself).
The Sun further reports that Drake was sitting out on the patio with five friends when at (or around) midnight he asked whoever runs the music to put Jay Z's newest album on. The restaurant, understandably, obliged.
“While we normally have our own DJ's music playing through the speakers, we were able to accommodate him and they listened to Jay Z's 4:44 album in its entirety,” restaurant group spokesman Joe Sweeney said to the Sun. “Several people walking along the Harbor East promenade approached him for photos and he was more than happy to take pictures with them.”
Sweeney also added that bartenders, servers and management made comments praising how nice Drake was. That would appear to include Twitter user @XOXOCandice, a Drake fan who put together an extensive Twitter thread about her chance encounter with him (we're talking nearly 40 tweets here):
Anyway, one can only wonder if he caught any subliminal shots or not.
