According to a report from TMZ, pages of the Toronto superstar’s old handwritten lyrics were recently discovered in a dumpster. At the time of these lyrics, the Take Care artist was allegedly working on music in his uncle’s Memphis factory. Once it closed down, the pages somehow ended up in the garbage.
It’s certainly hard to tell exactly what year Drake penned the lyrics. However, one of the pages does contain bars for a song seemingly titled “Come Spring.” On Drizzy’s first mixtape, 2006’s Room For Improvement, there’s a song called “Come Winter” within the tracklist.

“We’re in the age of conflict and knowledge / But we’re trapped in this cage of barbed wire and wreckage with the freedom to go to college / The freedom to indulge and dissolve ourselves in the process / The law says / You have witnessed / an audience in the race of silence,” young Drake wrote on one of the pages.
A rep for the MIT auction house says rapper Drake was working in his uncle's Memphis furniture factory as a youth and the lyrics were found in the dumpster when the factory eventually closed down. Now, they'll be posted for sale. #yeg #yeg893fm #musicgossip pic.twitter.com/gDQKguUy97
