The Next Big Thing: Drake
February 20, 2009 § 1 Comment
For the past week, I’ve been preoccupied with a certain up-in-coming rapper, by the name of Drake. The Canadian-bred artist (and actor) dropped his third mixtape, So Far Gone February 13. The mixtape has already been getting rave reviews on the blogosphere and for good reason. With 18 tracks, featuring artists such as Trey Songz, Lil Wayne, Peter Bjorn & John, Lykke Li, Santogold and Bun B, among others, Drake might be the next big thing. Recently signed to Interscope Records, Drake is set to release his major label debut, tentatively titled Thank Me Later this year.
I was going to post a review on So Far Gone, but it looks like a friend has already beat me to it! Check out her take on the mixtape at http://rhythm-and-bliss.blogspot.com/2009/02/so-far-gone.html and download the album while you’re at it! Good stuff : )
