Drake says he’s now ready to begin work on his second proper album, Take Care. As such, he has decided to indefinitely push back the release of his planned R&B mixtape, tentatively titled “It’s Never Enough.” Drake took to the October’s Very Own blog to announce the postponement.
“I am truly enjoying my life right now,” Drake wrote. “Its been so long since I have wrote anything on here because I feel like for a while I was trying to digest it all and save it for the music. But its finally set in that I am living my dreams and doing with all my closest friends from Toronto. I wake up and never know what to expect from any given day but good or bad I always learn something from it. I have decided that I am going to push ‘It’s Never Enough’ and focus completely on delivering Take Care to you all. I feel like my mind is truly ready to make this next album NOW and I don’t want that feeling to escape me. My mother is doing well for all who have been asking. She went to her first swimming class the other day and won gold…not really but you know what I mean. OVO gang is all smiles and 40 is making some of the best music I have heard in my entire career. I am in the airport right now headed to LA to meet up with Boi 1da tonight. Its all feeling right. Its truly been a pleasure to speak again. Thank you for all your energy. Soon. Guidance.”
“It’s Never Enough” was to be Drake’s fourth major mixtape following “Room For Improvement,” “Comeback Season” and “So Far Gone.” In 2009, the latter was repackaged for retail sale. Earlier this year, Drake told the BBC’s DJ Semtex he expected Take Care to be released at some point in 2011.
