DRAKE – NOVEMBER 18TH

so-far-gone

This song is the s**t. The whole So Far Gone mixtape is the s**t. Drake is a beast! He murders every f***ing track on the mixtape.

I take my listening sessions very seriously, so whenever I listen to a new mixtape or album I always make sure I’m paying full attention. When I listened to this track I played it back no less than 30 times before I got to the end of the song… NO LIE!

This track is fire! I know I say that a lot, but Drake kills it. I don’t care whether or not this song goes mainstream, he needs to make a video for it ASAP!

Drake – November 18th

P.S. – My computer is f***ing up so I had to borrow a link from 2dope. I’ll have the MOMB link up by tomorrow night.

DRAKE – SO FAR GONE (MIXTAPE)

Finally, the wait is over! October’s Very Own Drake just released his 3rd official project, So Far Gone, yesterday.

This mixtape is sure to be fire. I am yet to listen to the entire project, but I’ve heard snippets of about two songs and that s**t is knockin’. Once I get out of work, I’ll be devoting the rest of my day to this mixtape.

Here’s the tracklisting.

TOP 5 ARTISTS TO LOOK OUT FOR IN 2009

5. RON BROWZ

I’m sure you’re all still recovering from last year’s Pop Champagne craze. Everybody and anyody made a remix to Pop Champagne, from Papoose to Rick Ross, although the best remix is arguably Pop Rose by Drake and Trey Songz. Although Ron Browz has definitely been in the game for a while now, he finally went major last year.  Some of his more recent production credits include Rotate by N.O.R.E., Winding On Me by Fat Joe, and his own relatively new single Jumping (Out The Window). Ron Browz is definitely capitalizing on his new found fame as he is set to release his new album, Jumping Out The Window, on March 17.

4. ROCK CITY

Rock City definitely took over the summer with their smash single Loosin It, and they are determined to stay relevant by hopping on as many songs as possible, from Guns High by Ace Hood, to Hustle by E-40. Their sound is unique and the world just can’t seem to stop eating up every song they come out with. They have also put out a number of mixtapes, my favorite being the Put The F*ckin Album Out mixtape. Every song on that mixtape is pure fire! Rock City is set to release their debut album, Wake the Neighbors, sometime this year, but in the meantime you can listen to any of their various mixtapes.

3. DRAKE

Aubrey Graham a.k.a Drake or Drizzy, whichever you prefer, is yet to truly take the world by storm, but 2009 is definitley his year. With songs like Brand New, Pop Rose, and Ransom, among others, Drake is starting to become a household name. Honestly, Drake would be numero uno on this list, if not for something I’d like to refer to as the “T” Factor. Althoug Drake is a familiar name in Toronto, Canada, of which he is a native, he is yet to get the recognizable mainstream promo in the U.S. that many of the other artists on this list boast. I like to refer to Drake as “The Most Slept On,” but with co-signs from Trey Songz and Lil Wayne, the stage is set for him to truly take the world by storm in 2009. Be on the look out for Drake’s next mixtape So Far Gone.

2. WALE

while-you-were-out-best-of-wale

I’m just doing what I gotta do, flyer than the rest of ’em, still got my Nike boots…” and that’s how Wale’s hit single Nike Boots begins. Wale has definitely been on the come up for  a while now. I was already bumpin’ to the sounds of Wale way before his smash hit Nike Boots went mainstream. I still remember in the summer of 2007, on the 4A bus to Rosslyn Station, wildin’ out to Wale’s Ice Cream Girl off his 100 Miles And Running mixtape. That’s my s**t. Once I listened to that mixtape I knew he was gonna blow up. All I know is that the world still hasn’t seen the best of Wale and he has the opportunity to  do big things ‘cuz he defnitely has everyone’s attention now.

1. KID CUDI

If you still haven’t heard Day ‘n’ Nite then you’re definitley drawlin’ LMAO. The remixes by Jim Jones and Collie Buddz are fire! Day ‘n’ Nite might be one of Cudi’s more popular songs, but don’t be confused, that song doesn’t define his talent. Go listen to his mixtape, a KiD named CuDi, and you’ll see exactly what I mean. That s**t is knockin. Oddly, my favorite song on that mixtape by far is Embrace the Martian, but don’t sleep on songs like Maui Wowie and Is There Any Love? featuring Wale. Kid Cudi has also gotten publicity through Kanye West’s latest album, 808s and Heartbreak, as he is featured on the album’s second track, Welcome to Heartbreak. I don’t know what else to say except that 2009 is the year of the Kid.

So Far Gone

I started following Drake almost two years ago when his first single “Replacement Girl” featuring Trey Songz just started getting play and I’ve been a fan since then. He’s come out with two official mixtapes, Room for Improvement and Comeback Season, both of which are pure fire. Songs like Brand New and Ransom get constant play on my iPod, but I must say that every song he puts out is worth listening to.

I recently downloaded his new mixtape (not sure if it’s an official mixtape), Heartbreak Brake – Best of Drake, and every song on that mixtape undoubtedly deserves 5 stars. Right now, Drake is working on a new mixtape titled So Far Gone and I’ve been eagerly waiting for this to drop, so I just thought I should share the first piece of artwork for So Far Gone with you guys. I just peeped it over at October’s Very Own earlier today.

Look out for Drake’s new mixtape So Far Gone out in a couple weeks.
