Aubrey Drake Graham (born October 24, 1986), who records under the mononym Drake, is a Canadian recording artist, rapper, songwriter, and actor. He was born in Toronto, Ontario, and became known for playing Jimmy Brooks on the television series Degrassi: The Next Generation. He later rose to prominence as a rapper, releasing several mixtapes before signing to Young Money Entertainment.
Room for Improvement is the first official mixtape from Canadian rapper Drake. It was self-released in 2006. The mixtape was originally intended for sale only and had sold 6,000 copies in 2006. The tape has been digitally remastered and was re-released in 2009 for your listening pleasure. The mixtape features artists Trey Songz and Lupe Fiasco. He described it as “pretty straightforward, radio friendly, not much content to it.” In a TeenNick interview from that time, he cited his influences as rappers Jay-Z, Clipse, Talib Kweli, Mos Def and singers Anthony Hamilton and Maxwell.
“It’s a mix CD and I did it with DJ Smallz who does the Southern Smoke Series. He’s done mix tapes with everyone. Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, a lot of people and he’s hosting it for me. It’s called Room for Improvement. Its seventeen original tracks and a couple of remixes and stuff like that. 22 tracks in total. I have the Clipse on there, I got Trey Songz in there, I got Lupe Fiasco on there, I have Nickelus F who is this amazing artist from Virginia who I’m very very tight with and we work together a lot, we worked together. I have Voyce on there, he’s a singer from Toronto. Production wise I don’t really have any major producers on there. I have a song I did with Trey Songz. I have an individual by the name of Nick Rashur from Harlem he’s a really cool cat. Amir; Boi-1da did the majority of the singles, who else should I mention DJ Ra from DC, a lot of people on the CD.”
Released in 2006, “Room For Improvement” was the first official mixtape from Drake, many in the hip hop community had no idea who Drake was, today Drake has been criticially acclaimed as the future of hip hop. Since joining Lil’ Wayne‘s Young Money crew, Drake has surpassed all debut rapper expectations with a $2 million dollar deal on the table, being co-managed by Kanye West‘s Manager and knockin’ out a track on Jay-Z‘s highly anticipated “Blueprint 3” album.
Drake has come a long way since his Degrassi roots, which he was still taping during the time this mixtape debuted. This is classic material (all original tracks) and is just as good as the material on his other official mixtapes Comeback Season and So Far Gone. This is a rare mixtape, so it’s a must have for any Drake fan. Follow on Twitter @Drake @DJSmallz @MedievalBeatz Buy Beats Online
