NY Times 2009 Best Pop List, Drake Claimed The #1 Spot!

1. DRAKESo Far Gone” (mixtape; octobersveryown.net) It’s not interesting because it’s a self-released mixtape, or because he’s a former Canadian child actor, though knowing those things makes the achievement of this record that much more impressive and unlikely. It’s that Drake is an architecturally precise rapper and a plaintive singer all in one, a combination others have tried and failed at.
