The Brief: Drake 'Dark Lane Demo Tapes' artwork is being turned into a meme on Twitter.
On April 30, Drake dropped a surprise mixtape called Dark Lane Demo Tapes. It features his already-viral hit “Toosie Slide” and collaborations with Chris Brown, Future, and Playboi Carti. The mixtape’s album work pictures a black hoodie pulled tightly around Drake’s entire face, only revealing the rapper’s eyes.
