Drake, above all things, is a rap connoisseur. He listens to any and everything, regularly showing love to up-and-coming rappers by elevating them to the next step in their careers. This isn’t just for rappers as well; even producers, most recently Oogie Mane, aren’t safe from Drake’s benevolence.

With “Scorpion” finally hitting streaming services today, fans were quick to point out that this iteration of Drizzy is much more free-flowing than previous times. To explain why, and to continue showing love to the rising artists that he often draws stylings from, he took to Instagram to reveal which artists that he’d been listening to during the album’s creative process by putting a list of songs on his official IG story.

Here’s a list of songs that kept Drake inspired throughout the creation of “Scorpion,” straight from the 6 God himself.
