"0 to 100 / The Catch Up" is a song recorded by Canadian rapper Drake for his upcoming fourth studio album, Views from the 6 (2015). It was released on July 15, 2014 by OVO Sound, Young Money Entertainment, Cash Money Records, and Republic Records.

Composition[edit]

"0 to 100 / The Catch Up" is a two part song with a length of four minutes and thirty five seconds. The first song, "0 to 100", is a stripped-back hip hop song that sonically and thematically resembles Drake's "Started from the Bottom" from his third studio album, Nothing Was the Same (2013).[1] Instead of "starting from the bottom", "0 to 100" speaks of the rapper going from zero to one-hundred in order to gain ground on all of his competition.[2][3]

An earlier version of the song released on Drake's official Soundcloud account features a sample of an unreleased James Blake song.[2][3]

Critical reception[edit]

The song received critical acclaim from music critics, appearing on several year-end top 10 lists. In July 2014, Billboard listed "0 to 100" as one of the "10 Best Songs of 2014 (so far)" saying that "months after releasing another hit album, Drizzy returned briefly to take it from "0 to 100" with careening bars punctuated by boasts like "If I ain't the greatest, then I'm headed for it"."[4] The magazine also listed the track as the best rap song of 2014.[5] Rolling Stone listed the song as one of the "50 Best Songs of 2014", stating that it is "six minutes that pan across the whole Drake saga".[6] HipHopDX named the song as one of the "Top 10 Singles of 2014".[7]

The song was nominated for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards.[8]
