While So Far Gone was not an album, it did enough to gain the attention of major record labels. Universal Motown was obsessed with signing Drake. However, Drake was not interested in signing with the label. Fearing Drake would sign elsewhere, they had Lil Wayne sign him to his Universal imprint Young Money.
For the past few months, Drake has been working on his debut album. His months of hard work are finally about to pay off, but Drake is looking at the future. He is already planning his sophomore album and he has major plans for it. Drake said hip hop is all about moments and he thinks this may be a great title for his album. Rappers who were popular a few years ago are obsessed with their past, their moment, Drake is trying to live his.
However, before he releases his next album, Drake is going to return to the mixtape game to improve his lyrical ability. While Drake is considered to be a great rapper by many, in his opinion, he is not a great rapper and he wants to be great. Drake is confident in his ability as he says he feels he is good. But, good is not his personal best. Drake feels his personal best could actually be the best in the overall game. The only thing he wants is to be better than what he is at the moment.
