Drake has become a phenomenon in a really short amount of time. Best I ever had, to me, didn’t really have the mainstream appeal. However, it turned out to be one of the tracks that really put Drake in the spotlight. The So Far Gone mixtape was pretty much Drake’s TSN turning point in 2009 with it being even better than major label albums that came out during that year. And, it was free!
Here we have Boi-1da showcasing another great example of his ear sampling ‘Fallin’ In Love’ by Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds. It’s really a simple sample. Boi-1da slowed it down a little, added a fresh drum pattern, and some synths during the chorus. Also of course, Drake on vocals, and you got yourself a banger!
