I didnt really like the R&B parts on Comeback Season truthfully. I really like them on here. So I only listened to the rap section of CS while I listen to this mixtape the whole way through. Therefore...

So Far Gone > Comeback Season.


Exactly. I dug everything on Comeback Season but the cohesiveness of So Far Gone is bananas. Sonically it's his best mixtape to date.

yes yes yes


LOL!!! Says who? Mixtapes are suppose to serve as a promotional tool between projects. We Got It 4 Cheap Vol. 2 is still one of the best EVER though.

This should have been called an EP. It wasnt very mixtape like, especially in the sense that he didnt jump on other people's beats at all.

So Far Gone > Comeback season

However, track's and beats like "Don't You Have A Man" is what I miss the most, but I think that side of Drake is gone now.


Lots of artist put out mixtapes with all original production. It's nothing new. Kid Cudi did it not too long ago. Plus "November 18th," "Little Bit," "Say What's Real," "Let's Call It Off," "Unstoppable," "Ignant Shit" are all industry beats.

If you're referring to A Kid Named Cudi, no he didn't.

wow really? what music are you listening to?

you wanna play some mrs. officer and tell me thats his best song too? how far do you wanna push it? you have no idea what youre talking about if you think wayne sucked pre-carter III.

and i have to clarify. it was right before carter II and around drought III when he was in his lyrical prime.

it was made to prove a point because apparently it seemed like you thought carter III was good.

if you do, then you probably shouldnt be listening to drake. it might go over your head. blushing

Everyone's always wack before their biggest record on this forum. It appeases the pain in fans who were onto their favorite artists "first". Once you go mainstream, your pretty much dunzo.

i'll just ignore whether or not that was really sarcastic.

you can make that statement for the forum in general, but don't include me in it. wayne really DID suck before carter I because he didn't have a ghostwriter. his main accomplishment pre-carter I was either having 4 bars on back dat azz up, or selling x amount of records from tha block is hot (which i unfortunately bought in 7th grade). after his squad up shit, he was ok.

most rappers are, in fact, better before their first mainstream albums (i.e. lupe, jay, 50, eminem [what a horrible turn for the worst]), but there are obviously exceptions (i.e. kanye, slum village, nas).

you thought a millie was good?

dr. carter was the best song on the carter III lyrically, but a millie is just wayne babbling for three verses. he is literally fucked up, gone, and babbling. nothing has any continuity. nothing is clever. that was just a shitty rap. everyone who rapped on the beat rapped better than wayne. fab, jay, curren$y, jadakiss, cory gunz... you name it. everone spit a better verse than wayne.

No, I was being seriously sarcastic. Once Drake goes officially mainstream, his likeness on this forum will be done. "I was on him when Room For Improvement dropped"....

And I don't understand why people expect deep shit from Wayne. He's always been babbling. That's his appeal. I would never expect a NaS type verse from him because that's not what he does. That's like going to Rick Ross and telling him to spit an "I Used To Love H.E.R."

once again, over-generalizing.

thats fine if they say that, but thats not what im saying. i never said anything about expecting a deep verse from wayne. wayne had punchlines and rapped with a purpose back then. idk what you see or have been seeing or think i'm seeing, he doesnt do shit now that's remotely close to his old shit. hes too hopped off vicadin. hes not even entertaining... after carter II with all the mixtapes going into the drought III, he and his one-liners were entertaining.

on topic:
i havent heard all the album yet, but it's been damn good up through 6 (ignorant shit).

meh, decent at best.


Yea, wats all the hype about. Kid Cudi>Drake as a rapper/singer. Drake can sing better though. He'd be a good R&B artist.

hmmm I gotta hear more of Drakes stuff but if Drake couldn't sing I dont know
what he be. I like his versatility though, just like Kudi's but he comes off as more of a singer to me.

Cool I'd like a list of your favorite Wayne songs, becuase around that era if I'm correct "Fireman" made me hate Wayne, so I kinda over looked the guy.
