New Mixtape: Drake - So Far Gone

Some of our readers may know Drake as Aubrey Graham who plays Jimmy on Degrassi. As of late, Graham has been hanging out a lot with Lil Wayne and honing his MC skills. Back on Valentine's Day, he dropped his latest mixtape, So Far Gone. With its inspired choice of beats and samples (Peter Bjorn and John, Santogold, Kanye, Lykke Li), it's clear that Drake wants to blaze new ground in Weezy/Yeezy territory, even if his subject matter often stays in expected hip hop territory. Worth a download if you watch Degrassi, dig the aforementioned artists, and just want to check out a rapper trying something different. Download it over at Get Right Music.
