This is Drake, back when he'd cite Mos Def and Talib Kweli as influences, and when he'd work with a lot of J Dilla-esque beatsmiths. Some of his best tracks are here "Going In For Life", "Share", "Think Good Thoughts", "Closer".
Back before Drake found his style and was a chill, more jazzy rapper. Something you'd actually kind of expect from a Canadian rapper. He does a great job technically but it just doesn't feel like anything new is being done on this like he'd start doing on So Far Gone, Thank Me Later and Take Care.
