Kanye West's "No More Parties In L.A." was a pretty exhilarating first listen, but there's one cool Easter egg on the track that wasn't immediately evident (unless you happen to be the world's biggest Drake stan). Right after Ye's memorable call-out of that cousin who stole his laptop, a wild sample appears -- which is nothing out of the ordinary for Yeezy, but that sample just happens to be the work of Larry Graham, otherwise known as Drake's uncle.
