Too bad I’ve never heard it. Yeah, that’s right. Aside from a few tracks, I haven’t listened to So Far Gone in its entirety. In fact, I just downloaded it two days ago. Ask Crystal F, she sent me the Zip file.
To be honest, I think Aubrey’s hype dissuaded me from listening. From the Tweets to the streets, folks were championing him as if he was the best thing smokin’. I yawned when “The Best I Ever Had” leaked. Not to mention, I’m skeptical to cosign anyone that emerges so quickly from obscurity. Sorry, but I never heard or watched Degrassi.
So that brings me to today. And after my first listen, So Far Gone comes off as dope Adult Contemporary Hip-Hop. That’s not exactly my favorite brand vodka, but it goes down smooth nonetheless. Albeit the crooning, Drake’s wordplay is clever and witty. And hell, these days “The Best I Ever Had” definitely has my attention. Just as long as he leaves the Auto-Tune—and Blackberry’s at home, I’ll be sure to cop that blank disc.
