Ten years ago, in the early morning hours of February 13, 2009, Drake crashed the internet with the release of his highly-anticipated So Far Gone mixtape.
It’s a moment I’ll never forget. Frequenting refreshing the October’s Very Own blog for updates, relaying information (like a random Omarion appearance) to our readers, and just shooting the shit in the comment section while we waited (and waited) for what turned out to be a game-changing release in hip hop history.
To celebrate the project’s 10th anniversary, Drake took to Instagram to reminisce and reach out to everyone that was involved—from Bun B and Trey Songz to LeBron James and Lil Wayne with a memory of their time a decade in the past.
He even hit Kanye West with a shout (and shade) for using his “Say You Will” beat. Which, unfortunately, would become one of the reasons for their current fallout, with Kanye throwing a wrench in Drake’s plans of releasing So Far Gone on streaming services by refusing to clear it.
“A decade ago I rapped over your beat cause you just made the best shit,” he said. “And even though you stay wildin’ on Twitter these days, I will never forget what you contributed to the game and my career.”
Drake ended the post by revealing So Far Gone will finally be “streaming everywhere” on Thursday night–giving fans a chance to relive the moment they first pressed play.
