So Far Gone
By Tara Muldoon
The long-awaited So Far Gone mixtape from Toronto's Drake was released to a massive amount of critics and bloggers awaiting its arrival. The third in a series of acclaimed mixtapes, So Far Gone is a combination of hip-hop and R&B that's refreshing at the very least. He blends his lyrical talent with an array of styles and flows, creating a product that can appeal to any music fan. "Nov 18th" and "Uptown," featuring Bun B and Lil Wayne, are album highlights where Drake sounds completely in his element. The Lloyd supported "A Night Off" is a sure shot "in the mood" jam demonstrating the sensual side of Drake. The slower tracks ("Brand New" and "Sooner Than Later") are haunting reflections on relationships that Drake pulls off with ease. The downside of the album is that it is just a mixtape; Drake has some seriously high expectations to conquer

Read HERE. Now you know.
"So Far Gone has a lot of meanings—as the way we carry ourselves, the way we dress, the way people view us, not to sound cocky, it’s just that feeling that we’re just distanced in a good way. You’re just elevating past the bullshit and past all the shit that you used to be a part of and you’re not that proud of, you’re just so far gone."
