Drake Announces “So Far Gone” Streaming Release

    • Drake’s So Far Gone mixtape is on streaming services for the first time.
    • The release has been held up for years by the muddled process of copyright laws.
    • Kanye West also refused to give Drake permission to include the sample of his song “Say You Will” on the So Far Gone track “Say What’s Real.”
    • It’s unclear if the two artists have worked this out.
  • Drake’s So Far Gone mixtape, which dropped in 2009, is now available on streaming services for the first time ever. According to Vulture, the release has been held up for years by the muddled process of copyright laws and made more complicated by streaming rules that prevent traditional mixtapes–which often sample other artists’ songs–from ever seeing an official release. Drake’s ongoing feud with Kanye West also impacted the release of the mixtape, which features a sample of Kanye’s “Say You Will” on the So Far Gone track “Say What’s Real.” It’s unclear how Drake plans to include the sample without Kanye’s approval.
