Drake - Say What’s Real (Freestyle)

Producer:
Kanye West
Album:
So Far Gone Mixtape

Newly signed to Interscope (similar to fellow young phenoms Charles Hamilton and Wale), Drake has gone back to work on his long-awaited So Far Gone mixtape, which has been talked about for months without any release date announced. Being somewhat of a perfectionist, the Toronto native has waited patiently for the best of the best instrumentals to freestyle over; it looks as though this persistence has paid off. Over Kanye West‘s Say You Will (the opening track on 808s & Heartbreak), Drake decides to Say What’s Real, using the opportunity to get a few things off his chest.  Unlike similar freestyles from the likes of Tyrese and Trey Songz, Drake completely takes over the beat, leaving nary an Auto-Tuned line from West to be heard.  So, what’s real?
