Though Best of the Booth award-winner Drake‘s long-awaited So Far Gone mixtape is available now for free download, those who choose to drop some dough on the CD version of the street album will get a little something extra. Bonus track Congratulations, unlike most of Drake’s Booth features to date, sees the Degrassi graduate spitting all on his lonesome, accompanied only by Mega Man‘s sample of recent Coldplay hit Viva la Vida. Hov‘s favorite rock group provides an appropriately triumphant accompaniment as the emcee revels in his success to date with relaxed yet agile rhymes, even lapsing into Auto-Tune to shout out the collaborator that helped launch him to stardom (“...and my verse is getting stupider/ Wayne, if you’re on Mars, can you pick me up from Jupiter?). If you’re one of the thousands who made So Far Gone an online hit, why not grab a copy when it hits store shelves this spring? Drake’s career will thank you.
