If the streets are hungry, the streets need to eat. The T-Dotís new ambassador is servin' it up, even if itís in short form. Drakeís story is ridiculous but to break it down, this kid from Canada has been on the grind for a sec and once he caught the attention of some of Hip-Hopís elite, it was over. His dope mixtapes and incredibly crafted guest verses have everybody waiting to hear from the Degrassi alum. If you donít even have a proper album out yet and youíre on Jay-Zís Blueprint III, something is going very right for you. So Far Gone is a quick introduction to an emcee whose future is looking bright. The mood is definitely "kick back" as this double threat sings and raps his way through seven butter jams. UGK vet Bun B single-handedly steals the show on Uptown with his consistent sickness. Introspective and heartfelt are two words that describe the vibe throughout the project. Itís tough to shine when Lil' Wayne is on your tracks but Drake is confident that heís got what it takes to attract attention. The labels that lost out in the bidding war should be very concerned.
