I am definitely waiting for the album to drop...and until then So Far Gone will stay on constant replay! I am literally consumed with this mixtape... I play it in the car, at work, at home, etc. I haven't came across an artist that I liked this much in awhile...Get em' Drizzy...hip hop needs ya ;)

Well you damn well deserved this review. You define fresh and real, Drake, and I am so happy that someone wrote such an honest and understandable review. All of us are feeling and thinking the same way he is, so, that just goes to show: you are born to exhibit creativity. And thats exactly what you're doing, babe. Great job.

Nice review,Congrats homey i mean that mixtape is pretty much a classic in my book as far as material goes. You've seemed to reinvent yourself while not alienating yourself from the public. Keep it comin No homo.

bUGGa said...

My brother put me on So Far Gone. AMAZING!! Real talk, no gas. Best I Ever Had is my favorite. Very refreshing to be able to listen through without skipping songs. I wish you the very best. Who knew. . . from Degrassi to this!!

Yo Drake, Congrats on the mixtape. I've heard it all and its amazing. I also want to let you know I hope your coming to Daemen College's annual spring fest this April 18th in Buffalo. A lot of the students including myself are very excited to hear you perform. I hope you are able to come out and perform. Keep doing your thing.

It goes to show how much of an audience Drake has out here in Boston. I can't even begin to tell you how many fans he has here, even though he hasn't released an album yet. The way he writes about things that he goes through in his real life (I'm assuming) and puts them into perfectly shaped bars is truly a tasteful art. He reminds me of a young Jay-Z mixed with a kind of artist never experienced before. Keep doing your thing Drake, and remember to not forget about your fans, and what they have to say. Stay humble.

P.S. Come do a show in Boston! If the price is right, I'll be there LOL .

-edwin, baby !
