cool song..

EtanClan said...

Nice..pretty chill song.

Just gotta say I like the mixtape's tracklist a lot better than the EP's tracklist. There was such a cool feel to the mixtape, every track flowed with the next. I hope your album has a similar feel, Drake...either way keep doin what you're doin. It's great either way.

Jason Battersby said...

Closest i've felt to comeback season all year, which is an awesome feeling. Goodluck with the surgery brother, all the best, this song has me patiently waiting for the album.

MaLLY said...

I can say: you definitely did your thing on this personal track..."Fear". Even though you have only been around for short time...you are one of my favorite artists because you are able to change up styles whether it be for the ladies, personal tracks, or the more "swaggerific" type songs...haha...but OVO knows what I mean...Keep making good music and sharing it with the world..I plan on getting that EP...

Anotha Time,

Mally

J.D.S. said...

Awesome song homie, your voice is sort of like prince when you sing, the way he had his own amazing way of singing that was unique to him, even though it wasn't a trained vocalist's voice. I think people will keep accepting you for you which is the message (or the desire expressed) I got from the song.

hickdickorybree said...

I am so glad Drake even exists. The game definitely needs change and he is definitely the cashier.I love your truth Drake.

Picc said...

Raphael said...

Drake you've come so far I'm so proud!

Please don't do features on your first album, I know every artist is going to want to get involved with you at the moment and I'm sure it feels great but please just do your own thing on Thank Me Later, don't let anyone get in your way. Take as long as you want and don't feel pressured, I know you've got some excluse deal so you don't have these labels hounding you.

Please just go solo on your LP, show everyone what you're made of. I love the track! It ends So Far Gone in the perfect way and I can't wait until TML. Drake my brother keep doing you and don't let the industry pull you down!

Much Love!

Mr. Carter said...

the first time i geard i was speechless, for me personaly FEAR is better than Successful...

Kevon said...

your inspiring future rappers...trademark of a legend. loyal fan here..from back then to know...i think you've grown for the best..so far gone created that appeal..some people just are selfish ..in there love for certain things..like your music..i guess they don't wan't it to seem like some sorta bandwagon...true fans know that u haven't change ur only getting better..this song is proof of that... because it happens to a lot of artist...previous fans say the change...and everyone seems to be afraid of that nowadays.. just work hard..like you've been doing...inspiring..and good luck on the surgery. -Kevon

Maurice said...

After Jay-Z dropping a dismal, sub-par BP3, Its up to Drizzy for the album of the year, this song is mean..

The Heap said...

Real deep and I luv it. The beat is crazy. 40? If so, if not, it's off the chain.

Nique said...

I wont even try and sit here and give you advice... Just want you to know this is my new favorite drake song... the honesty gives me chills... good luck on your future... big thanks to Drake and the whole team for the inspiration...

P h i l s k i ' 8 2 said...

Desiree said...

CheezyDoDo said...

Songs like this and "Say Whats Real" and "The Calm" Make me really fuck with Drake,I Like his punchline songs,they cool But when he gets personal its few who can touch him

cant wait for the album

remedy said...

and i be gettin' high, just to balance out the lows.

wow.
thank you.

Wonk said...

"I never cried when Pac died, but I probably will when Hov does"?

My dude wake up, and quit idolizing fa real, u see how Kanye's career took off after he hopped off Hov's nutsack. Pac is the true embodiment of a artist. And somebody that came from a good legit acting background, u could learn alot from dude, like passion, social awareness, creativity...you know the stuff ppl that doubt about you? How the fuck you idolizing a nigga thats dropping an album next week? When Kobe & Iverson came into the league they went at Jordan!! they didnt suck his dick!(im not talkin bout dissinn either) im disappointed in Drake smh...

Element said...

Drake, this is inspiring. Do your thing man, you know you still have all of our support.

“BUT ITS FUNNY HAVING FANS, WHO FIND U BEFORE ANYBODY EVER HAS THE CHANCE, AND BUILD YOU UP SO YOU CAN BE THE BIGGEST IN THE GAME, AND REALIZE WHEN YOU THERE SOMETIMES YOUR SHIT DONT FEEL THE SAME”

babyqueen262893 said...

I love it. I never been on another artist like I am for you. Your music is so real and refreshing

eknowsnas401 said...

this and the calm are my two favorite tracks of drake's. they're too real... life is crazy but at the end of the day you have to find the courage to get through it. next tatt: my sanity is my solitude, my strength is my Savior

p.s. you can blame backstagepazz.com for those groupie hoe stories lmfao.

Kia B said...

I love when you do personal tracks like this. It proves to the doubters that you aren't some popcorn rapper. Good job :)

Justin. L. Cabrera said...

Artist - Aspektz
Song - Fear (Just a Week Ago) prod. DJ Khalil
Label - True Thorobredz
Website - www.aspektz.com

Peace Andru.. hope all is good. Check this track out, fresh out the lab. Remember to holla if you need any press/drops/exclusives.

Ancient proverbs suggested there is nothing to fear but fear itself - and that couldn't be closer to the truth as Aspektz of the True Thorobredz opens up the war chest over cascading horns supplied by none other than DJ Khalil. This cut is from Drake's SO FAR GONE EP being released shortly. If you enjoy this, check out IN THE TDOT which is available on iTunes as well and make sure to always support your own. The video for IN THE TDOT will be released shortly!

dis is da realest song he ever did

StarofDR52 said...

Wow... nothing else to say. You just continue to give me reasons as to why you're my favorite artist!!

steven said...

this is definitely a beautiful song. this dude put is heart and situations into this song as he always does. drake is definitely representation of where music should go, being about truth. check out this remix to the FEAR ft. Jay-Z & Nas...verses taken from Success off Jay-Z's American Gangster. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZI8FoS7K3a8

Karen said...

I have no luck in downloading this... :(

* Bri-Jay _ x . said...

Drake, I love how you rap on such an emotional level. This is one of your best songs ever. And, if I remember correctly, you said that the last line on 'Fear' would be the first line on Thank Me Later.

"It's funny how money can change everything."

- and that's so true. Can't wait for your album. Keep the songs coming!

Aaron said...

craziest and best thing bout Drake... always talks from the heart... not tryna be a gangsta or any of that shit... jsut livving life like how its supsoe to be.

Drizzy alwasy raps about releatble stuff thigns that people cna easily understand... not jsut like Girls and Money all the time. When u add in how he uses the metopors and his crazy lyrical abilities... AMAZING!

One of the best Drake tracks iv herd - keep doin ur thang!

AW said...

First of all, I love this song cause fear is the emotion i'm discussing about in my emotional intelligence course so when I heard this song I was like heyyyyy!

Second, check out my poetry/spoken word blog at:
http://timeless-adub.blogspot.com/ More to come and i hope ya like it. keep doin work Driz son

iNSPiRED4fr33 said...

roclafamilia02 said...

I saw www.glimpsepa.com/blog.html recreated another cover. I like this one better drake!

soda said...

Cool song. Sort of reminds me my track "The Fear" done differently. It's a nice track. It has Jay Z-ish trumpets and just sounds good.

Richard Basford said...

Drakes up next, see what he does with it!!!

can't wait! Great song, maybe not as lyrically intricate as the calm but lots of passion, gotta love it!

rich

bigspoon22 said...

Dope song.

Can't wait for Drake to work with Prote-J. Went to dude's mixtape listening party for "Good Hip Hop Meets Raido" and he's the future of not only hip hop, but urban music. They played beats he's made and song's he's written in addition to his own music. Kid is crazy talented. And I don't even support these new guys normally.

I know the chances of Drake reading this is slim to none with him being busy and all, but I just wanna say this song is something I wasn't even expecting. It feels so real and authentic. Like, i think Drake actually meant every word he said and its amazing to me because some of the things he said is something I wouldn't expect to hear in a song. I feel guilty, because after the success of So Far Gone I stopped having as much love for Drake as I've had in the past. I felt like he got the whole world on his team now, he don't need me as a supporter. I like music that everyone isn't jamming. I like to feel like the sounds coming out my speakers are exclusive which is why I listen to mixtapes and I didn't have that anymore. I guess people who have a real love for music all felt the same way though. It's like, you got the fame, but you lost a lot of the people that were there prior to the fame. I'm sure with your commercial success you've gained a whole new fan base, but the people who were here before are gone. I appreciate this record because it opened my eyes and it let me see that all artist aren't the same. You're a person with feelings just like the rest of the world. It's one thing to hear someone talk about what the industry is like, but this just gave me a whole new view on fame. I love it and you definitely got a fan back on this track alone. Sorry i betrayed you boo. Im back!
