Biography

Known initially for his role as Jimmy Brooks on Degrassi: The Next Generation, Toronto, Ontario, native Drake (born Aubrey Drake Graham) stepped out as a rapper and singer with pop appeal in 2006, when he initiated a series of mixtapes. A year later, despite being unsigned, he scored major exposure when his cocky and laid-back track "Replacement Girl," featuring Trey Songz, was ... Read more in Amazon's Drake Store

This album was originally released as a free, promotional mixtape. This version of the album is much shorter. Please don't waste you money on this and just download it for free from datpiff.

Drake is one of the more talented young rappers to come along and you better believe the hype machine was in full effect. It's not unwarranted though since Drake has the talent and the songs to back up his hype. So Far Gone EP is nothing new however it gives fans a chance to own a real copy (or half copy at least) of one of the best mixtapes released in the past few years. The song that defined the summer appears here and for those not in the loop it's BEST I EVER HAD. SUCCESSFUL is also on here in it's original glory (even though Trey Songz had to jack that for his album...I'm not mad). The other songs are top notch as well which is why the EP has earned 5 stars.

However, this EP is only for those that are new to Drake or like to have official things in their collection since So Far Gone The Mixtape came out over 5 months ago and contains more songs. The one new song FEAR is included. I admit I didn't buy the EP simply because this week I already put down for the Kid Cudi, Lil Boosie, and Trick Daddy. But having listened to these songs for months it's easy for me to say that the EP is worth the measly $6 or $7 that you spend on it. The album THANK ME LATER is scheduled to drop in the first quarter next year for those further interested.

I brought this CD off of impulse and I was little naive because I didn't do my research. I give this album a "2" because it has a couple new tracks, but there are only 7 and most are from his FREE mixtape.

You can get his mixtape "So Far Gone" for FREE, online which has 17 tracks and is a lot better. It has good track flow, Great production and basically professionally put together just be a "mixtape".

I have a feeling the record company released this EP to make some type of profit off of Drake's popularity.

Should be zero stars.

Under no circumstances should you pay for this mix tape. It was released in 2009 to be distributed FOR FREE. Whoever owns the rights to this pay version of the album is submitting DMCA COPYRIGHT VIOLATION NOTICES for torrenting this album. This is completely egregious that they're charging for a FREE ALBUM and issuing COPYRIGHT VIOLATIONS to protect their claim. All on an album that was intended to be downloaded and distributed by the artist for free. It's really insulting and a testament to just how greedy and malicious record labels are.

So if you want this free album, go type "drake so far gone" into google and click on the second link for a site called "datpiff" and you can download it. Then burn 50 copies and give them to everyone you know, just like the CREATOR OF THE MUSIC intended for you to do!

I am a fan of Hip Hop not only in music but also the culture. I listen to a lot of rap music from the old gangsta rap music from N.W.A., to the intellectual teachings of KRS-One...to the raw lyrical deliveries from the likes of Nas, Rakim, Canibus...and also to the funky styles of A Tribe Called Quest so I know a little more about what good Hip Hop Music is really about. But over the last couple of years Hip Hop has been declining in quality of music, these days people only care about a good beat and don't care about the lyrical abilities of a rapper anymore. The most overrated and most talked about rapper would have to be Lil Wayne if anybody. People like Lil Wayne because of his so called "hard hitting rhymes" but in actuality its just kindergarden play on words and crappy analogies (but don't get me wrong because Lil Wayne does have his moments).

DRAKE is the new rap phenomenom soon to become the new Lil Wayne, showing signs of upcoming success already working with some of musics veterans such as Kanye West, Mary J. Blige, Jay-Z, Eminem etc...This album is an EP of Drakes past songs mainly from his mixtape with the same name that came out earlier this year in February, as well as a couple of new ones. Drake doesn't have the same pinache as some rappers do, his delivery is basically the same in every song, his lyrical ability is questionable often reciting lines you would think Lil Wayne would say, and his musicality is very very basic. But even with all that negativity said, there is something about Drake I just like, he is basically the rapper in the game I hate to like.

1) Houstatlantavegas - What makes Drake a bit better then other rappers is the fact that he has a little R&B touch to him, which makes him a lot more versitile in music.

I got into Drake a lot later than most people. Sure, I heard his songs on the radio and I thought they were pretty good, but it wasn't until I heard Thank Me Later that I became a true fan of Drake. So Far Gone has a different feel to it though, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. What I like about Drake is that he's not a stereotypical rapper from the hood that raps about being a gangster and all that. He grew up in a wealthy household in the suburbs and he doesn't try to act like he's anything else. His songs bring a different feel and story to them that is rare to find in rappers today. I really like all the songs on the album (though I did have to grow to like Uptown) except for Houstatlantavegas and the Calm, which weren't bad songs, i just wouldn't have them on repeat. Great start though and I hope to see more from Drake in upcoming years.
