Drake Interview w/ Complex

drake-so-far-gone

Drake speaks to Complex on a number of subjects ranging from his musical upbringing, to some of his influences, to the theme and plot line of So Far Gone, which makes a lot of sense actually. He also speaks on how he met Lil Wayne, the naming of his latest project, speaks on the XXL Freshmen 10, the comparisons to 808’s along with his own major label debut. He also sorta denies ghostwriting for Wayne but… nevermind. Also speaks a bit on his lifestyle, whether it’s clothing, champagne, Blackberry or maintaining a balanced daily diet of Nah Right.

Complex: Listening to your earlier mixtapes, as well as So Far Gone, a constant theme seems to be the notion that “All That Glitters Ain’t Gold.” It seems like you try to be honest and downplay the rapper lifestyle, like when you talk about buying a Phantom but regretting it.

Drake: Yeah, well, to be even more honest, I leased a Phantom instead of buying one, ’cause I didn‘t have enough money to buy a Phantom, I leased a Phantom because that’s what I thought I needed to do. And I’ve done a lot of things to just enjoy my nights a little more and to feed my ego. And that’s kinda why I rap about it, because a lot of people are like, “If he ever steps out of line, I’m gonna say Drake’s wack.” So the only choice I have is to be honest with my listeners. And that’s not to say it’s not a glamorous life and it’s not fun, but the reality is it’s great for the average person to hear a musician’s reality because we all seem so unattainable and so out of reach that when you bring yourself back to eye level with a fan and do it in the right way…

Complex: What’s the right way?

Drake: You don’t make stupid internet videos or show people you have too much free time, you just say the right things and they’ll be like, Damn this dude’s a real person and I can relate to that. That can make somebody’s life, that can make somebody’s day, that can be a line that they never forget. So I try to have as many of those lines as possible so that fans feel like Drake isn’t only one of my favorite artists, I feel like he’s one of my friends, he talks to me. That’s one of the benefits of being honest with your music. But some people are scared to do that, too, you know. Because some of their images are built off facade and that’s OK, as long as you can keep it up. But we’ve all seen what happens when you slip up, and that’s a stressful life, I don’t want to live like that. Letting people find out shit about, printing out my documents and putting them up on Thisis50.com.

Always said I’d say it all on the right track
But in this game you only lose when you fight back

    Chimp Was Unusually Close to Owner

    Travis the chimpanzee’s relationship with his owner was closer than those of some married couples.
    Sandra Herold gave him the finest food, and wine in long-stemmed glasses. They took baths together and cuddled in the bed they shared. Travis brushed the lonely widow’s hair each night and pined for her when she was away.

    Those cats from TMZ are fuckin brilliant at sensationalism, I bet there are pics with her eyes open but they probably selceted the closed eye pic to subconsciously plant the seed that she was near death.

    I’m from the hood, I’ve seen people get beat up, Ive seen people scuffle with their girls, not necesarily hitting her but maybe choking, putting her in a headlock etc, these often results in cuts, scrapes, which is what she has now.

    No black eye, no split lip with blood oozing, none of her injuries to me says she was hit, I don’t dispute that she was overly roughed up or even abused, but the sensationalism over this whole story is bullshit, especially when both of em gonna make yall look like fools in 3 yrs when they get married, TMZ will be the first reporting “how happy the couple looked”

    Yeah my guess is he was driving, they were arguing, she popped him in the face and he just pulled over and smothered her with a headlock and mighta accidentally pushed her over once they got out the car. I mean, when my broad loses it she’s liable to do anything. She probably got way out of pocket and he was just trying to contain her. In the process she got a little rugburn to the grill.

    ^^^im not trynna be that funny. i’m speaking from experience, I’ve seen, niggas scuff women up like how Rihanna looks now BECAUSE THEY DIDNT WANNA FIGHT..just you and her and she keep coming at you on some man shit..by restraining her you end up assaulting her…she gets scraped up..like rihanna is now.

    IF CRIS BEAT HER WITH A OPEN HAND ALL WILLY NILLY AND SHE DIDNT START IT THEN HE’S WRONG.

  114. Rockabye Says:

    Can I clarify the stuff I was saying earlier? I realize this is a hip-hop blog more concerned with ayos and things than criticism of music, but:

    Drake speaks words in rhythm to music in a flat tone that’s recognized as “rapping.” This makes him a “rapper.”

    If he does other things too, so be it, but he fits the biggest criterion for being a rapper. Whether he’s a good one or not is another question.

    i don’t think drake’s taking shots.. it’s just a lot of rappers put their boring lives on blast and make stupid videos showing their money chains cars and what not.. i understand if it’s for mtv cribs or something, but look on worldstarhiphop and there’s tons of bammas just making videos because they have cameras. and if joey has something to say, it’s probably cause he feels the shoe fits him and that’s automatic fail on his part.. great interview though

    Three Drunk Women had a very late night drinking. They left in the early morning hours and went home their separate ways. The next day, they all met and compared notes about who was drunker the night before.

    The first girl claimed that she was the drunkest, saying, “I drove straight home and walked into the house. As soon as I got through the door I blew chunks for 10 minutes.”

    The second said, “You think that was drunk? Hell I got into my car and wrapped my car around the first tree I saw. I don’t even have insurance!”

    The third proclaimed, “Damn, I was the drunkest by far. When I got home, I got into a big fight with my husband, knocked a candle over, and burned the whole house down!”
