Hoping to rack up yet more sales and buzz between now and the February 2010 release of Thank Me Later, Drake and his new label team, Young Money/Cash Money/Universal Republic, are re-releasing the most popular tracks off his smash-hit So Far Gone mixtape in EP form. On closing track Fear (the only new cut set to appear on the EP), Drake gives his thoughts on the success he’s achieved to date, lacing DJ Khalil‘s beat with poetic rhymes that should finally silence those who still consider him a “rap-ballad MC.” Already stirring up plenty of conversation thanks to the line, “I never cried when Pac died/but I probably will when Hov does,” this previously-unreleased track will likely provide the push fans need to pick up their own copies of the SFG EP when it hits record stores and online retailers on the 15th.
