After 10 years since Drake originally dropped his first mixtape, one which has paved the way for his entire musical career, he took to social media to announce that So Far Gone will officially be available to stream for the first time since its original release back in 2009! For the Canadian rapper, the mixtape was the start to the journey that got him where he was today.
If none of the songs on the album are familiar, that will all change after reminiscing with some of his most notable hits to this day including: “Best I Ever Had,” “Successful,” “Houstatlantavegas,” and “Uptown.” In a post dedicated to the team that he has built since the start, he shouted out OVO members Future The Prince, OVO40, as well as Lil Wayne, and even Kanye West despite all of the recent drama between the two. Check out the post below!
