Drake is releasing his highly anticipated fourth album, Views From the 6, this year, but before he starts rolling out singles and tour dates, he's decided to release a short film titled Jungle, which may be a small peek into the rapper's journey in the music business and what it took for him to reconnect with his roots.

The nearly 15-minute clip shows a worn out Drizzy leave the noise of his fast-paced life in Los Angeles and travel home to Toronto. While being chauffeured around before making it back to "the 6," he rants about working, possibly being stressed and knowing that it may be time for a short break to reset.
"I’m drinking more, I’m smoking more. You know? We’re out here staying up so late that it’s early. Like, f—k. I’m not losing it though, you know, I’m just venting." He continues, "I’m not like worried or nothing. It’s already too late for these guys. Trust me. I’m just more worried about myself. I just gotta come home."
When he finally makes it home, he looks out over his hometown, reconnects with old friends, sees women of his past and maybe his present, and ends up in a dream sequence where all of his friends exist and it's clear that he's still attached to home as much as he may be removed Toronto.
In the outro song, which is assumed to be a track from his upcoming album, Drake rap-sings, "These days, I'm letting God handle all things above me/ the things I can't change are the reasons you love me." If this is any indication of the content that will be on his forthcoming album, then it's clear that we'll hear his most introspective music yet and that Drizzy season is about to begin!
