Twitter – Before Scorpion even dropped, people were proclaiming Drake the G.O.A.T. As soon as the 25-track double LP was released on Friday (June 29), Twitter was immediately hard at work doubling down on those claims.
Considering the project clocks in at roughly 90 minutes, tweets praising Scorpion for its perfection were coming in before it was even possible to have heard the entire project.

Hold up, Drake said "My Mount Rushmore is me with 4 different expressions."
GOAT. That's an all-time line.

With production from beat magicians like DJ Paul and DJ Premier, and guest vocals from JAY-Z, Ty Dolla $ign, and posthumous contributions from Static Major and Michael Jackson, Scorpion is gathering fire emojis faster than Dreezy replied to Pusha T’s “Infrared.”
This Scorpion album is the best of Drake’s career ?????????

But, there are also those who are unhappy with the length of the project and who are berating those deeming it a classic so quickly after its release.
Check out some of the negative reactions below.

You said “Views is way too long,” and Drake was like “fuck that and fuck you, we’re doing 8000 songs this time around.”

This drake album is too long. I prefer the short 7 song albums kanye has been dropping. Makes each song seem more valuable.
