My not-so-secret love affair with Aubrey Graham started in the land of mixtapes back in ‘06 when he dropped “Room for Improvement”. I remember the day like it was yesterday. It was the Southern Smoke Special Edition and his first offering to whomever would listen; just a kid outta Canada trying to make his mark in the rap world. His rhymes were smooth; his delivery even smoother. This tape was turnt up though. There was no singing, just an exhibition of slick punchlines. Looking back, that was his hook.
