Drake is just unveiling more of his emotions on his new song “Fear.” The track, featured on the revised version of his breakthrough mixtape So Far Gone, was leaked on the Internet recently, giving fans a taste of what to expect from the retail version.
“No Auto-Tune, but you can feel the pain,” he raps. “It all comes spilling out like I hit a vein.”
Saving money on a hook man, Drake takes up the chorus duties for himself. “Don’t believe the lies/ Look me in my eyes,” he sings. “Please don’t be scared of me/ Please don’t scared of me/ I remember you, this feeling isn’t new/ So please don’t be scared of me.”
“I had recorded it when I was recording So Far Gone,” he explained on the set of the “Successful” video in Toronto. “The first verse and half of the second verse, I had gotten through — then I stopped. It was getting eerie for me. It was getting eerie. It was kinda like, ‘Whoa.’ Then the other night I had a moment and finished this song. The third verse transitions into Thank Me Later. The last line of the third verse is gonna be the first line on my album. It’s gonna transition.”
Drake also recently shot videos for Birdman’s “Money 2 Blow” with director Gil Green and “Forever” from the LeBron James documentary “More Than a Game.” Drizzy teamed up with Eminem, Lil Wayne and Kanye West on the latter track, which will hit stores on September 29.
So Far Gone is due in stores September 15.
