5.0 out of 5 stars
He showed his true colours right from the start., 27 Jan. 2014
If I'm not mistaken, this is a re-release of his "Room for Improvement" mixtape that came out in 2006. There are no sleeve notes, writing or production credits with this version that I bought. The production is what you'd expect from a mixtape - good ideas but not really developed - but Drake showed right from the word go that he was a serious contender. It's light on profanity, and heavy with great ideas, original flows, and poetic rhymes. If you discovered Drake when 'Take Care' came out, you will not be disappointed by any of his back catalogue. This is an instant gem.
