Drake Apologizes & Re-Releases Mixtape

Posted By on August 14, 2009

     Just days after the news broke that Motown might still own a piece of Drake and Drake even coming forward to talk about his problems with Motown's president Sylvia Rhone, Drake is now saying he is sorry. "I can definitely say for me, for furthering the negativity, I can definitely say I apologize," Drake said in an interview. "I don't know her personally to discredit her character. It's not the right thing to do…It was basically [me] feeling trapped. I was courted by somebody and then they just axed everything. I was stuck. They disappeared. And I couldn't find anybody to talk to about the situation. And then to meet again a year later and to have this person forget they ever met me and say that I should go meet at their office so we can talk about signing me. I was kind of in one of those moments like, for real?," Drake said.

     In related news, Drake has announced plans to re-release his "So Far Gone" mixtape and said there would be an unreleased track which will help transition fans to his upcoming "Thank Me Later" debut. "I did this song that no one has ever heard before, ever," he revealed in an interview. "[It's] a song called 'Fear.' I recorded it when I did So Far Gone — the first verse and half of the second verse I had gotten through. But then I just stopped because it was getting eerie."
