Drake Tapped Lil Wayne, Kanye West & More On “So Far Gone”
Drake’s “So Far Gone” started it all.
It’s always a red letter day when a classic “mixtape” arrives on Streaming services. After all, the mixtape era of 2008-2012 has yielded no shortage of classics tapes, including Drizzy’s own seminal drop So Far Gone. Nowadays, the man might be able to snap his fingers and change the CN Tower’s visual aesthetic. Yet it wasn’t always the case. On So Far Gone, Drake seemed to be finessing his style, dabbling in the melancholy romance that would come to define his sound. Appealing to both fellas and ladies alike, Drizzy’s everyman relatability and lavish lifestyle formed a juxtaposition that never felt unrealistic.
