“I just wanna be, I just wanna be successful” 🎶
The Goat is 10 for 10! ‘So Far Gone’ dropped an outstanding 10 years ago and the timeless piece was third in streaming this week and debuts in the number five spot this week on Billboard’s Top 200 albums list. This gives Drake his 10th consecutive Top 10 album.
The stand out project form the Canadian rapper had bangers like “Best I Ever Had “,“Successful”, and “November 18th” (RIP DJ Screw).
So Far Gone was never properly commercially released to streaming services until Drake made the announcement on the 10th Anniversary February 15th and now the album is expected to be released on CD on March 8 via Young Money.
So Far Gone is Drake’s only release to never be a No.1 but to debut in the Top 5 on the Billboard charts and 10 years later shows why he’s one of the All-Time Greatest! There was some controversy leading up to the album’s release as the “SICKO MODE” emcee had to put his beef aside with Kanye West in order to get song clearance for “Say What’s Real”. Champagne Papi even took to his Instagram to shout out all of those involved with the iconic project, including West himself and out course his long time collaborator and friend Noah 40 Shebib.
Stream So Far Gone on Spotify and Apple Music!
