The man of music right now, Aubrey Graham a.k.a Drake gave Fader Magazine his first extended interview since 2014 with Rolling Stone Magazine.
Drake is one of the most talked about names after his mixtape “If You’re Reading this it’s Too Late” , OVO Fest where he did hilarious memes of Meek Mill, the dating rumors with Serena Williams, and released the anticipated tape with Future “What A Time To be Alive.”
Fader’s Leon Neyfakh spoke to Drake about his upcoming album Views From the 6, his feud with rapper Meek Mill, Hip hop, and his love, his mother. He also addresses the ghost writing allegations towards him.
He talks about how his home, Toronto is on the map and now with his song “Know Yourself,” the 6 is really out due to their new anthem. People all over were chanting the chorus.
“I always used to be so envious, man, that Wiz Khalifa had that song ‘Black and Yellow,’ and it was just a song about Pittsburgh,” Drake says. “Like, the world was singing a song about Pittsburgh! And I was just so baffled, as a songwriter, at how you stumbled upon a hit record about Pittsburgh. Like, your city must be elated! They must be so proud. And I told myself, over the duration of my career, I would definitely have a song that strictly belonged to Toronto but that the world embraced. So, ‘Know Yourself’ was a big thing off my checklist.”
Drake also discussed his reasons on dropping his lastest diss track “Back to Back” towards Meek Mill and how he didn’t understand that Meek basically had no comeback or plan.
“Nobody told you this was a bad idea , to engage in this and not have something?… It was weighing heavy on me. I didn’t get it. I didn’t get how there was no strategy on the opposite end . I just didn’t understand. I didn’t understand it because that’s just not how we operate.”
Mr. Graham is really at the top right now and I don’t think there’s any stopping him at this point.
