Exactly ten years ago, Drake dropped So Far Gone. The 2009 classic project will soon be available on streaming services for the first time.
Drake posted a lengthy message on Instagram about his third official mixtape. He also shouted out members of his team, his close friends, and his musical collaborators. The Toronto-bred superstar even mentioned his frenemy Kanye West.

The acknowledgment of Kanye comes after months of the G.O.O.D. Music founder accusing Drake of various personal attacks. At one point in 2018, Ye blasted Drake for trying to get the “Say You Will” sample cleared for the So Far Gone track “Say What’s Real.”
