CORRECTION:





ATTENTION EVERYONE!
EVERYTHING I SAID ABOUT SO FAR GONE BY DRAKE IS FALSE, AND INCORRECT. YES, THE SONGS ARE REPEATED, BUT THE NEW ONES ARE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. DRAKE HAS DONE IT, COMING WITH EXACTLY WHAT HIS FANS LOVE. THIS COMBINATION OF SLOW MELODIC R&B COMBINED WITH HIS METAPHORICAL RAP LYRICS HAS TURNED SO FAR GONE INTO A TREMENDOUS MIXTAPE!

OVERLOOK THE SONGS THAT ARE REPEATS: STUNT HARD, UNSTOPPABLE, BRAND NEW, SAY WHATS REAL, LITTLE BIT, AND SOONER THAN LATER.

THE REST ARE FANTASTIC, CREATIVE ALBUM ART AND THE TRACK LIST PUSHES THE LIMITS OF CREATIVITY, AT TIMES IT IS SLIGHTLY CONFUSING.
AS DRAKE SAYS, "THE GAME NEEDS CHANGING, AND I'M THE MOTHERFUCKING CASHIER" HE HAS CHANGED THE GAME.

I HAVE SAID IT NUMEROUS TIMES, DRAKE HAS PASSED WEEZY AS THE "BEST RAPPER ALIVE"
ARGUE AGAINST ME ALL YOU WANT, SURE I'LL HEAR ARGUMENTS FOR CROOKED I, LIL WAYNE, WALE, LUPE FIASCO, AND ANY OTHERS YOU WANT. SHOW ME A RAPPER THAT CAN GENERATE THIS MUCH BUZZ, IS ENTERTAINING, AND CAN BOTH RHYME AND SING. HE IS THE FULL PACKAGE. DRAKE IS THE HYBRID SINGER RAPPER THAT THE INDUSTRY HAS CRAVED BUT HAS BEEN UNABLE TO DISCOVER.

HE IS HERE, CROWN HIM KING!


I UNDERSTAND THAT I BASHED THE MIXTAPE A FEW HOURS AGO. BUT AFTER LISTENING TO IT THOROUGHLY AND MULTIPLE TIMES SINCE THE LAST POST I HAVE FALLEN IN LOVE!!!!


Check out these songs:

-Lust for Life
This is a great song about moving on in life and the glories of success. Even though life hasn't been as great as it could have been in the past you have to move on. No time to stop, stopping equals death.

-Houstatlantavegas
Fantastic story about a struggling woman. A woman who has dreams and goals in life, but the only way for her to make money is to strip, even though its degrading. She needs the money, she's stuck in the position selling her body. Its beautiful, Drake comically pokes fun, "and shes dances to this song" both to his song and the one that plays in the strip club, "Rodeo" by Juvenile. A song about sex and stripping. Drake seems to beg the listener to continue to throw their money at the stripper. "Throw your ones up in the air" the throwing of money is what will eventually allow this woman to escape the horrors of stripping.


Successful
This is a simple song, with a simple title. Successful. Its what we all want to be and what we strive for. These songs on the album seem to coincide with one another. "Lust.." ends with the lines "throw your ones up in the air" which is once again repeated in "Houstatlantavegas" Drake seems to be trying to conveying a message. Don't get me wrong I'm not claiming that these are the answers, they are simply what I see in the music. This song follows after "Houstatlantavegas" and seems to say that life is about success. Drake wants to be successful, Trey Songz who collabs on the track wants to be successful as well. Who defines success, its it "money, cars, clothes, or the hoes?..I suppose.." as Trey says. Each person wants that but is that what we all desire or is it what makes us "successful" in the eyes of this young society

Lets Call it Off I cant explain why I even like this song. I'm sorry, you just have to listen to it to understand. It is one of those tracks where you either feel it or you dont. It's certainly creative and definitely worth listening to.

Ignant Shit
On the majority of these tracks Drake switches between his smooth R&B demeanor and his gritty conversation-styled rap. However on "Ignant Shit" he lets loose with Lil Wayne. He takes Jay-Z's track "Ignorant Shit" from American Gangster" It is a sample from the beautiful Isley Brother's track. Drake kills the track, even at times mimicking Jigga's flow. He lets Wayne loose on the track, but its safe to say that his first verse keeps Weezy pretty contained, Wayne does not outshine Drake at all.
