Idk, I’ve never really liked Drakes music before Take Care. Before he really got good at the pop rap style on Take Care, he sounded really bad with it imo. I’ve always preferred the Nothing Was the Same, If Your Reading This It’s Too Late Drake, that was actually rapping. Take Care is the only one where I like this style of Drake.

Despite the nostalgia this mixtape may have, and whatever music Drake's early sound inspired, most of these tracks have not aged well at all. Most of them are quite boring anyways.


Musically So Far Gone is meh and most of the universal love for this tape runs on nostalgia. Have to bump it up though just based on its sheer impact for rap



Drake's "debut" into the mainstream delivers on a few fronts, and falls flat on some others. While there's certainly some lacking character and emotion, the record undeniably has its moments of nostalgia and grandeur.

FAVS: Best I Ever Had, Unstoppable, Uptown

LEAST FAVS: Outro, Brand New

There are some pretty great highlights on here, the production is pretty decent and man are the highs absolutely high like Congratulations, Say What's Real and Best I Ever Had are fantastic Drake songs. The rest are either or mediocre. It's not as bad as some if his newer stuff and not surprising that it's decent because Drake would go on to release some of the best hip-hop ... read more
