Young Money rapper Drake's highly anticipated Nothing Was The Same album has leaked across the Internet more than a week in advance of its scheduled drop date.
According to reports, Drizzy's newest solo effort landed onto the Internet Monday (September 16).
Just days before the official release of Drake's new album, Nothing Was The Same has hit the internet. The Canadian rapper's album is scheduled to hit stores Tuesday, September 24, but the entire LP surfaced online Sunday, just nine days before its release. The album features the highly anticipated collaboration between with Jay Z, entitled Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2. In the song, Drake complains about how his classmates treated him in high school.

Last week, a 30-second teaser clip for the new LP featured splashes of Drake's OVO brand, flashy vehicles and odes to his country.
Drake released a mysterious trailer for Nothing Was The Same which drops in two weeks on Sept. 24 today via OVOSound. It's essentially just a procession of really nice cars--an OVO motorcade, if you will, with Canadian flags hanging out of the roofs. As per Hit-Boy's Twitter, the beat in the background is produced by Hit Boy and Rey Reel. @AudioPush: New @Drake album trailer with production by @Hit_Boy and @ReyReel in the back. #HS87 out here. @Hit_Boy: "@AudioPush: New @Drake album trailer with production by @Hit_Boy and @ReyReel in the back. #HS87 out here.""

Despite Take Care's ample hit singles, Drizzy recently said he was more focused this time around.
After dropping Take Care, Drake relocated to Los Angeles, where he recorded a bulk of the new album and focused on stepping up his game. "The music that I'm making is more concise, more clear, and I've been able to get my thoughts a lot better on this album," he told MTV News. "Take Care is a great album, but I listened to it and realized where I could do better and I think I've done better on this album." (MTV)
New details on his upcoming LP, including more scoops on his "Wu-Tang Forever" track, surfaced online earlier this month.
On the '90s-rap-inspired song "Wu Tang Forever," he weaves boasts of sexual virility around a plinking piano and rapid-fire drums. The outro to the album, tentatively titled "Pound Cake," features two incisive verses from Jay Z, even as Drake asserts himself above any and all competition by the song's climactic ending. "Studied the game to the letter and I did it better, like I'm supposed to feel guilty?" he rhymes. (Billboard)
