So Far Gone was Drake’s third mixtape and the project that launched him into the mainstream worldwide. The critics loved it giving it an 81% approval rating. After being signed to Young Money Entertainment, Cash Money Records and Universal the project was re-released as an EP. On its 10th anniversary, we take a look back at the project and how it, in the end, became a project that helped shape the music that we hear today.
The 00s was a good period musically for me. I was a student in high school during the early 00s and was exposed more than ever before to music thanks to the rise of the internet. Prior to that time I only experienced music through radio and music video countdowns. One of my favorite genres in high school was R&B. Since I was into writing, I was drawn more to that genre because of just that. So this week I will be taking a look at some of my favorite R&B songs from that era. I will also be sharing my Spotify playlist which is always being updated. So let’s get to it.

Cole and his camp Dreamville. So with no further delay, here’s my last HOT TRACKS list for the month of January.
