Drake Reacts To "Take Care" Leak

Drizzy takes to Twitter to share some words on his sophomore set's leak.

Last night, Drake's sophomore album Take Care sprung a leak ahead of its release date.

Shortly after the LP hit the Internet, Drizzy took to Twitter to share some words about its premature release. Instead of voicing his dismay, the Young Money rapper encouraged those who downloaded and listened to the LP to buy it if they enjoyed it.

Take Care, which features guest appearances from Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd, Rihanna, Rick Ross, Andre 3000 and Lil Wayne, is scheduled to hit stores November 15th.

I am not sure if the album leaked. But if it did thank god it doesn't happen a month early anymore.

    this leak is gna seriously affect his sales. Album hasnt even dropped yet and its already old news. Also it wasnt the hiphop record of the year like many were waiting for...a lot of emo rap and rnb

  • jr88

    cosign!! cole world is waaaaaaaaay better thantake care......i was expecting drake to shut down the haters but this album isnt good....even the rnb track arnt that good...he his flow has gone bad...what the hell happened?

  • D

    I wanna know the idiots that actually buy the album when they can download it for free. Let alone buying one after first downloading the leak. The record has the same tracks than the leaked version has, unless he push the album back and add new tracks. That's like getting a free car and then going out and buying the exact same car that has the same exact features. Some people just don't know how to manage their money and we wonder why the economy is so bad. smh. Use that money for a needy cause if not at least buy yourselves something you NEED.

  • Cool flow

    I always download leak album and then still buy it especially young jeezy albums. think i might buy a drake album 2

  • Swordz

    Reporter: So Drake, I heard your album got leaked?? (Drake finishes his make up) Drake: Man.... I'm saying... (Drake cries loudly) Reporter: Would you a like tissue?? (Hands Drake a tissue) Drake: Got anything softer...?? (30mins later) Reporter: So... Some insiders are saying you wanted it to leak on purpose?? Drake: Man... I'm just saying... Reporter: Yes... Drake: I'm just saying.. Reporter: ... okay. I'm listening.. Drake: I'm just saying... you could do better. Reporter: Don't touch my leg.... Faggot.

  • shady83ify

    wen is drake gona do a joint wit Em it has to happen nd dn't count forever asa proper collab!

  • Grandson

    Drake should take care of his albums so they dont leak. But im back on my album buying game, so i refuse to download leaked shit. J cole, Big sean, Drake. I'll listen in my cd player.

  • COME ON

    every album that comes out ppl say they suck I don't think at anytime in my life since reading hip hop DX an album has had nobody trashing it instead of accepting ppl for the style they are Like Drake! everyone complains, but then after that they still complain when they say there is no diversity in hip hop... So quit bitching you don't like it don't buy it.. but don't sit and tell everyone that it sucks and not let them here it for themselves...its funny how everyone has negitive things to say when most if not all of you don't have a clue into what it takes to make an album or the stress it has to stay consistant..So when you guys (and I'm tired of saying haters) make a platinum album come back talk to me or should I say Type.....

    Drake---Overrated Lil Wayne----Overrated Kanye/Jay-z-----Two of the most overrated Fags in the history of rap Inform me when Yelewold's Radioactive leaks !

  • sayed

    drake = overrated lil wayne = overrated everybdy n csh money except nicki= overrated em ever since he made his cumbak = overrated odd future = overrated tyler = underrated goblin and bastard are some of the best albums i've ever listened to during the last 3 years drake can take care of my dick

  • Rahjay

    hiphop isnt all about drugs,sex,and violence.It also has a soft side,which it should be.Im tired of hearing the same street shit.Hell everybody popped guns ,sold drugs and fucked a few loose women.Drake's Album take care,is a classic in my opinion.I listened to the leaked version,and I like it.As soon as it comes out,Im buying the physical copy or download it from Itunes.This is a master piece album.Cant hate this man

  • Doesnt matter

    Honestly I dont normally post on these sites, but a lot of these comments are unnecessary. This album is probably one of the best albums for this specific kind of music. Would I define it as rap. Probably not, but in his own right drake has some serious talent. Every song on the album is at least silver. Some gold hits on there. Definitely going to buy this. And Ill admit the content we hear in his lyrics are nothing we haven't heard of before, but hell this is mainstream music. I guarantee Drake is getting an award for this, and definitely deserves it.

  • R2die

    wow the album leaked and i still aint gonna download it.. i rather use that computer space for some real rappers

  • Anonymous

    same exact content from his previous work but twice the r@b.the beats will put you in a coma.the lyrics are again about love lost niggas hatin on him and blahblablah.yaawnnn

  • bigo

    Rap has completely turned into r&b. These dudes rap as soft as wet tissue paper. I like Drake the rapper, but I can't buy the singing. I wish him well, but he can't have my 12.99

  • illmind

    fuck drake, i downloaded his shit like 50 times and am gonna pass this shit out to ppl at the record store...rich ass nigga...hate hate hate!!!

  • ItsTheTruth

    Not a fan. I'm waiting for Cold Corner 2 to drop tonight, and looking forward to Radioactive later this month. I'll pass on Take Care

  • Anthony Blue

    This album is too sissified for me..he sounds like a scorned woman..way too much singin for my taste..if i wanted an r&b album,i'd buy one...niggas doin everything else but rappin these days..smh

  • Anonymous

    Way too much singing. Not enough rapping Drake. It's not like Drake is a bad rapper either. He's one of the dopest rappers out right now, but when i hear Drake singing on most of his songs, I'm like wtf man. YOU CAME INTO THE GAME AS A HIP HOP ARTIST DRAKE!!! RAP MOTHERFUCKER

  • Anonymous

    Take Care is no good man. This is not fucking hip hop.

  • realtalk

    tbh his first album + mixtapes is alot better than take care but he got a few good songs on this. he not the greatest or a legend but you cant deny that he got some skillz, what he need to do is stop rimmin waynes asshole and stop makin music for lowest common denominator

    • realtalk

      @thought dog not low standards but high expectations, he needs to step away from makin mainstream music and find that passion and determination that made him who he is. people hate and just dont understand that he wouldnt be where he is if he didnt have any talent. tbh i like 70% of drakes songs its just that 60% of this album isnt as good or better than his other songs ands thats prob my high expectations but way i see it is if you make good music, i expect you to deliver that same quality or better.

    • thought dog

      So thats how low people standards are now with hip hop...Everybody says shit like "Ok, yeah his albums suck ass but you at least have to admit he has some talent".

  • YADIG

    PLEASE DON'T JUDGE ME I JUST YMCMB TO STAY TOGETHER FOREVER LIKE A REAL FAMILY!! YOUNG MOOLAH!

  • Gunitinthehouse

    Oh yeah, imma buy an original copy of Take care to break weed on it...

  • Gunitinthehouse

    LOL! Now watch the sales plummet LMAO! Imma bootleg the hell out of this shit and give it out for free. And Drake, u asked me to Thank You Later? yeah, thank you for fullfilling ur YM contract, coz now ur punk ass a free agent! My general will slap the earth wind and fire out ya general! Gunit fanbase >>>>> Young Hunnies fan base. its the unit bitches!!!

  • YADIG

    MY REVIEW OF TAKE CARE: IT'S DECENT BUT MORE WAYNE WOULD'VE LAUNCHED THE ALBUM FROM MERELY BEING A OK WEED PLATE TO ONE OF THE GREATEST ALBUMS OF ALL TIME.. TAKE CARE EVERYONE AND GOD BLESS..

  • YADIG

    MY WORLD IS CRASHING DOWN AROUND ME! I NEED MORE WAYNE!!! MORE FUCKIN WEEZY!!

  • YADIG

    WAYNE KILLS IT ON THE REAL HER & HYFR BY THE WAY!

    • illmind

      newsflash faggot, the carter 4 was mediocre at best and there are literally mixtapes like freddie gibbs shot that are about 6578 times hotter than anything wayne has put out in a hot minute...

  • YADIG

    I FEEL SICK TO MY STOMACH.. I MIGHT THROW UP I NEED THAT WAYNE/DRAKE ALBUM... PLEASE!

  • YADIG

    ATTENTION EVERYONE: SINCE DRAKE DOESN'T WANT TO THE COLLAB ALBUM WITH LIL WAYNE AKA THE GREATESE JUST DOWNLOAD THIS FUCKING ALBUM...

  • DeeJay

    People can judge Drake's music since Room For Improvement but if you dont listen to it then you really have nothing to judge. If you in the car and Headlines comes on that does not qualify as listening to Drake's music either. I'll check out the album if I dont like I'll just take it off my iPod. I wont insult the man's musical skills because they're obviously good enough for you to compare his new material to his old stuff. Voice your opinion just can't hate or your goin to hell.

  • thought dog

    Checked it out and its definitely not a cd youll wanna put on if no chicks are in the room. ASAP Rockys mixtape, Phontes album, and the Black and Brown ep will do just fine in all situations though.

  • The Goat

    Pussy Ass Music. Seriously only faggots like this singing bullshit. Won't be buying and its deleted

  • Patrick Nomvia

    Too much "hiphop hipsters" on hiphopdx assaultin all drake related articles talkin' bout rappers nobody even fuckin know, or albums that came up in 1991. Yo don't look smarter like that homies. Listen to the music and stop hatin'

    • bkzookeepa

      i thinkpeople are mad cause drake can actually rap in a day and age where rappers rappers are few and far between so it stings a bit when he chooses not to rap well and subs in poorly sung hooks and melodies. That dude the weeknd can actually sing, if drake cant sing like that he just needs to rap and have the wknd sing the singing parts. yall feel me?

    • thought dog

      ^ Go figure a European dude defending fruity music....Im SHOCKED!

    • Patrick Nomvia

      So if i got it right, you hate on Drake just because he made an album that is labeled hip-hop album instead of r'n'b because the nigga sings a lot? That's one of the most stupid comment i've ever read! Call it R'n'b then if that's so important

    • LOL

      Who the fuck cares? If you don't like what people have to say, why do you even read comments? Why do words on a screen affect you that much? Get over it.

    • Public Enemy

      Look dumbass noone judging his topics. Just listen to Slum V, they talk about pussy all the time, with SKILL. People are calling out fans like you that think Drake is Gods gift to hip hop when hes far from It. If he decides he wants to make a r&b album then thats on him, Its not for dickriders like you to tell us that the shit is hip hop when Its clearly not and the dude is singing.

    • oh yea?

      @nickle: you don't have to go around telling people certain music sucks, just because you don't like it. Stick to the artist you like, don't worry about the rest.

    • Patrick Nomvia

      @anonymous : killyourself @nickel : i am a real hiphop fan too, otherwise i would not be on dx, but what's the problem with the singin', that's just his touch Bone thugs used to sing. The problem with so many hip hop fans is the fact that they rarely accept something that sound different from their "classics". It's so easy to caricature sayin' he speaks about the same boring topics and bla bla bla but what was the typical 90's/early 2000's rap album about : Drugs (hustle), Bitches, Money period nuthing more. But there were nonetheless dope albums so allow me to say that the "same boring topic" is not an argument. But you have the right not to feel it though

    • Anonymous

      drake is weaaaaakkkk sauce times 10 to the cocksuckin power... him and wayne minaj with birdman all day... homo sex is why i dont like drake...

    • nickel

      we listen to the music and dont like it, thats why we try to give people a fan of hiphop some info on cats they might like, its not hating if we legitimately dislike his music, same boring topics, too much singing not enough verses what more can i say?

  • Brandon Hamm

    You know, he does have a good point, albums don't leak out extremely early like they used to. We haven't had a Food & Liquor or Rebirth situation for awhile now.

  • Jose

    Not a fan of Drake, I respect what dude is doin though because he's really mixing it up. People want that Comeback Season Drake back and yeah I felt he was better back then, but its whatever. Bumped the album, wasn't mind blowing, but it didn't suck. Don't care for the album, we'll see what the sales say.

    when you come up on mobb deep nas and big l, its hard to like this sort of "rap" music. i respect what drakes doin, but by no means am i a fan. like someone said before me, this album is for people who got their heart broken. im not hating, im just sayin i would much rather enjoy The Infamous or The Big Picture for the 700th time than listen to take care.

  • ZULU

    GO pick up A Tribe Called Quest or Eric B. & Rakim album instead of mainstream garbage. Take care people!

  • kay

    and by the way hyfr(hell yeah fuckin right) is an incredible piece of art..the type of song that transcends time, the type of work that will be remembered after drake is gone.. i am completely moved by that song.. and i dont even like soft shit like that

  • kay

    the first half of the album is r&b, the second is rap..he should have done the reverse..peoples attention spans are short! i wont lie i just downloaded it... and i wont lie, i just pre-ordered it online..why you ask.. because that shit is quality! im proud of duke..beyond the hate, i cant believe this kids perseverance.. but in all honesty, had i known the prison guard was on it..i wouldnt have ordered it. i ordered it off the strength of underground king..

  • tryu

    Tthis isnt a rap album , its the second coming of ja-rule....

  • mased

    is this a mixtape or album????its ok , spounds just like the last one

  • Shifty212

    Anyone who appreciates music will appreciate Take Care. Dismissing this album because you don't consider it 'real rap' is an illogically formed opinion, as how many clever rhymes rapped doesn't determine the quality of the song (I.e. Royce 5'9), nor does it reflect upon the messages presented. Again, those who appreciate the art of music will appreciate this. $hifty

  • yawooh

    well I guess it's no suprise..Rappers need to copy Jay and Kanye's method for WTT cuz dat had the fewest leaks i've seen in a while

  • John-Boy

    This album has waaaaaaaaay more singing on it than Thank Me Later. I thought TML was decent but this album is a bit on the weak side. I like when he raps and there is very little of it on this album. Also the monotone beats mixed with his singing damn near put me to sleep at my desk.

    Well...I'm bored with it already. I mean, there's some nice cuts on here. But it's even less spittin than on Thank Me Later. His bars have always been nice to me, I'm just not a big fan of the style he's grown into. Take Care is okay, 3/5. it's just boring at times to listen to throughout the album. He's singing on EVERY song, like really...but, that's him, and I can't hate. But, it's just okay to me
