Drake and OVO Sound have released the tape on streaming services.
So Far Gone is unanimously a classic among Drake fans, as it changed the landscape of hip-hop and influenced many of the genre’s current stars. At 18 tracks, Drake refined his ability to sing and rap on moody soundscapes, and developed the blueprint for how his sound would take shape on future projects. So Far Gone stamped Drake as an artist who wasn’t afraid to be vulnerable, balancing melancholy with happiness; triumphs with losses. Many of the mixtape’s lyrics have become metaphors for people’s lives, a time capsule of when you were chasing dreams of being successful, hurt by love, or somewhere in between.
