Drizzy Drake is a true gentleman. Last night, when his sophomore album Take Care made an early arrival to listeners’ ears, Mr. “Headlines” gracefully urged his Twitter followers to take in his album at their will. With only 8 days before its official release date, Drake took the leak as a blessing. VIBE listened to Young Money’s latest project and in the process took note of the people, places, name drops and references made on the album.
