Take Care is pretty much my favorite album ever! Bound to be a classic, and so amazing to seee the process and many, many hours of work that went into it!

But i really want to know, are we ever gonna see any of those songs that were cut? I'd love to know the process of chosing which songs go into the album! Some of them sound cool too!

Anonymous said...

am i the only person happy that that crazy 'drizzyswife' girl isnt on here anymore? or........? you know that crazy stalker little girl who would always curse people out and write stories on the comments about how she knew drake, when she was lying.... maybe i shouldn't have said this, she might see this and come back.

Great seek peek of all the hard work and effort that was put into creating Take Care... The album was truly a masterpiece. Best Rap/ Hip Hop Album as a WHOLE... I am genuinely impressed that I never have to skip a track. The lyrics very meaningful and the music off the hook... very very well done.

Anonymous said...

Sorry. This thought is NOT coming from a hater, but a genuine fan. (Shout out OVOXO and heartfelt personal Congratulations on your success with "Take Care"! :) ) Seriously. Something I read earlier today, while listing to "Free Spirit" brought an insight...and I just had to post about it, I guess. It connects with the young woman who tatooed your name on her forehead. (Talk about devotion!) So...


"Tat my name on you so I know it's real
Tat my fu---n name on you so I know it's real
I know it hurts, but I ain't tryna hear it
Cause when I'm not around, I still be there in spirit
You'll still be mine, you'll still be mine
Tat my fu---n name on you when I go, you'll still be mine
You'll still be mine, I'll still be yours
Tat my fu---n name on you, let em know you love the boy, what's up."
--Drake

Say, Drizzy. It seems to me that all that less-than-all-there girl did was take you up on your less-than-all-there offer. She tatted your name on her to "let them ni@@as know it's real." She did her part, as less-than-all-there as that may seem to the rest of us. She was basically giving herself to you by the act. I bet that's how she understood it.

Now, my question is simply this: Do you have be a man of your word...and do your part?

You belong to her, now. At least, symbolically. "...I'll still be yours..."

If your lyrics mean what they say they mean, then I guess you've chosen to have her belong to you now...and you to her. This may not be true...but it may be what she (or others) may actually believe.

Will you keep that in mind when you meet her?

I really don't think I'm wrong on this. We may all think it's less than wise...but she did it...because of that song. Watch. What's sad is how utterly predictable this was. No joke: when I first heard "Free Spirit" in September, I thought about Emotionally vulnerable/unstable girls thinking that they belong to Drake and all that and ACTUALLY believing that will link Drake to them EMOTIONALLY...because they went and got a tattoo of his name. A brief thought, nothing more. A couple of months later? Well...Reality is stranger than fiction, I guess.

Again, still a fan. But maybe a lesson can be learned from this for future songwriting, yes?


Be well...and "Take Care"!

Where's Oliver ..?

Lmaoo . Also on the way down I peeped the comment about that girl who tatted her name so Drake would know it was real. I remember when the picture was first going around Twitter. I really hope she meets Drake 'cause that's Real dedication . I'm not gonna lie . I was surprised when I found out that Drake spoke out about it . She wanted your attention so I guess she got it . Situations like these it may seem messed up to laugh at it but at the same time what else can be done ? She already got it tatted . The best that could be done too fix it is too help her get it removed . I just wonder what people are gonna do Next ... This might start a Movement ____O

If Drake , Oliver , etc do Read these comments Merry Christmas , though you may not celebrate .

Unfinished Drake Tracks from Take Care:

Faith Beat (..maybe Lord Knows?)
Whole Lifetime
Blue Bugatti
Drake You Beat
Nicki (..maybe Make Me Proud?)
Crew 3 (..maybe Motto?)

Can't help but wonder what these songs sound like, and/or why they didn't make the final cut. Especially since this album was suppose to include 20+ tracks.
Hope someone leaks these.
Soon.

BonafideSexyG said...

I have to say something about the girl that got a "DRAKE" face tattoo... Omg why would anyone do that?

So this is the tattoo artists story of what happened, and even though he is a total jerk off, I believe him btw.

Yeah, she was really psyched about it. She had the shitty font all picked out on her iPhone ready to go and was pretty adamant about putting it on her forehead. She didn’t say a word about what it meant to her. Some of the guys at the shop asked her, and she just kinda giggled at them. When I printed up the first image of the lettering, she wanted me to go bigger, so that it went pretty much from each side of her hairline to the other. I thought she shaved her eyebrows for the procedure, so when I put the stencil on the first time, it was right over her (missing) eyebrows, but she had me enlarge it a bit and push it up towards the hairline. But yeah, she acted as if she had planned it out for a while, but I’m not really sure how much extended coherent thought could actually go into getting such a stupid tattoo on your forehead.

I guess I feel bad that this dumbass got the name of the softest motherfucker in hip-hop tattooed on her forehead. But what makes that any less valid of a tattoo to her? I lost a little sleep over it that first night, wondering if I wanted to be known as the asshole who tattooed “DRAKE” on some crackhead’s forehead. None of the face tattoos I had done prior to this got any publicity, so I was a little surprised that this one took off like it did.

WoW.......wow... LMAO.... WOW. What's there to understand? She's probably on drugs. She must have been high. Now she is going to be scarred for life and have to have the big DRAKE tattoo removed or hide it with the bangs because everyone is going to look at her face and know that she was the girl that tattooed DRAKE on her forehead. I really don't think the tattoo artist should have done it, but if he didn't then some other person would have... She would have gone from tattoo parlor to tattoo parlor trying to find someone to make this humongous tattoo of Drake. The tattoo artist was even trying to make a smaller version of it, and she declined it. She wanted it HUGE so it was all her.

I hope when Drake meets her that he talks some sense into her. Take it easy on those drugs or pay for her rehab and to get it removed if she changes her mind. It's a young, impulsive thing to do that if it is a mistake, it's a lifelong scar. That's very sad for someone who in their youth has beautiful skin and such a beautiful face to ruin it by being impulsive. She's young and naive. Everyone in comments keeps calling her "stupid". I just feel bad for her. I hope she finds a different way to get attention.

Good luck with the tattoo ordeal.
Love ya,
-M

Ay Drak and 40... I was just wonderin' how may I get in contact with you all 2 maybe work out future business inquiries. I am a hot producer who also writes, raps, and sings. I am sittin on 400 top 40 bangers that just dont have the proper mix on them. I currently am goin thru a ruff time where school is gettin hard to afford and about 2 give up on this music shit and just try and succeed in society as just an average person. But, this is where my heart is and I want it 2 stay there.. And it can only help with a helping hand from you all. U can contact me @:

to drake: i dont blog often but my names pete from dover delaware and ive heard people including you constantly talk about the appreciation for music, the components of a good song and really connecting to the audience... Take Care.."Do It Wrong" was as direct as possible and just the fact that Stevie Wonder was featured on it made it better then it could ever be.. probably couldnt count how many fans you have but you just gained another so i appreciate what your doing for music and for the world right now and i thank you.
