As far as I'm concerned every beat on the radio sounds like DJ mustard or drunk in love. I'd love to hear someone try to do it live w/ a female singer, drums, and a moog or bass. Best R&B song in a minute but dude can't sing for shit smh.
Drake was doing these kinda beats like Rtistic said below

BMF and Exchange are not the same drum pattern. BMF is closer to my other example, Drunk in Love. please give me other examples of songs within the last 5 years with a rhythm/drum pattern close to bryson tiller's exchange...and i'm not just talking about a sped up 90s sample.
check out this cover where this doowop group does a medley of don't and exchange...notice they don't sing the verse of exchange? they had to switch it up...cuz it's different...even the way kevin gates raps on "2 phones" i can't articluate it, but it's exotic to me. i know it's been around, but it's mainstream now. Drake and Beiber using dancehall rhythms on their latest POP ALBUMS is a trip to me as well.

I said the snares hit on the same count in both beats. That's what you said was throwing you off. Exchange is just slower.

I could tell you why that is, but you'll just think I'm being snarky again, so nevermind. Glad you're enjoying the music and finding it fascinating.

i think this tempo (~80-95 bpm) with "trap" drum patterns (meaning one snare per measure hitting on the 3) is a fairly recent development and could be a gateway for older artists to get on more modern-sounding beats since the tempo is closer to what they used to rap over. they don't really have to change up their flow much, save for accounting for the "increased" space due to there being only one snare per measure instead of two. hopefully this leads to more experimentation with patterns by said older artists
not sure about the time signature. most likely 4/4 and littered with 8th and 16th notes that sound "slow" because of the tempo and snare pattern. maybe 8/8 where the snare hits on the 5? but that seems overly complex
