    Drake was going to release his second album Take Care on Oct. 24, which is also the rapper's 25th birthday. The album has been pushed to a new release date of Nov. 15.

    Drake posted the following message on his blog about the release date bump, which has to do with clearing samples legally. It's not been edited at all.

    "The new date for Take Care is November 15th, 2011. I…have run into a roadblock of clearing 3 samples in time to make the October 24th date. My options were to take the songs off and make the birthday release happen, or to take an extra couple weeks to get the paper work right and give you the album they way I NEED you to hear it. The choice was clear as day for me. November 15th you will get Take Care the exact way I created it with no trimmings. This music means too much to me to get attached to dates and I do apologize for the delay but I promise that it is only for the benefit of our experience together."

    It makes sense for Drake to push the release in order to put it together properly and legally.

    Are you looking forward to Take Care?
