Despite the turbulence in their relationship at the moment, the caption also sees Drake give a special shout out to Kanye West for what he contributed to “the game and my career”.

Featuring the big tracks “Best I Ever Had” and “Successful”, So Far Gone was Drake’s official introduction to the music world and the 2009 project propelled him to stardom.

The news of Drake’s re-issue comes just days after the OVO artist won Best Rap Song at the Grammy Awards for his 2018 hit, “God’s Plan”.
