“Look Alive” is the first collaboration between Memphis rapper BlocBoy JB and Drake. Drake’s connection to Memphis can be attributed to his father Dennis, who is a Memphis native.

The song describes ties to Drake and BlocBoy JB’s crew in Tennessee. They get money and take care of each other, so people on the outside better “Look Alive” before they get taken down.

Compared to a very slow latter half of 2017 for Drake music, “Look Alive” follows his feature on Migos' “Walk It Talk It” and his two track EP Scary Hours for what is shaping up to be a busy 2018.
