Every artist has that group of unreleased tracks or unofficial tracks that fans beg them to release. Back in 2019, Drake dropped Care Package which answered this. A collection of tracks that had been dropped via Soundcloud or Youtube over the years was accumulated into an actual project.
Yet again, Dark Lane Demo Tapes follows in a similar vein. The difference, whereas Care Package was a collection of old Drake hits, Dark Lane Demo Tapes is a crop of tracks produced in the past year or so.
Earlier in the year, “When To Say When”, “Chicago Freestyle” and “War” were all unofficially released via Youtube. Here now, they included in this latest project. Recent viral dance craze track, “Toosie Slide” is also included with features from Young Thug, Future, Playboi Carti and Chris Brown.
Drake announced this mixtape via an unexpected Instagram post in which the caption confirms that his next studio album will be dropped this summer.
