Drake Complex Cover (Feb/March)

drake-complex-cover-2010-nahright

For their Feb/March issue, Damien Scott sat down with Drake to discuss what has come up since the last time they’ve spoken to each other. Obviously there was the backlash from the Best I Ever Had video and how it slowed down his momentum, his knee injury. addresses how Kid Cudi may have felt slighted because Kanye was directing his video while Cudi was coming out. He also addresses the competition between all the young/new rappers, as well as his old friend Nickelus F.

Around the time that Kanye directed “Best I Ever Had,” it seemed like there was strife between your camp and Cudi’s camp because Kanye was so enamored of you while Cudi’s project was being worked on.

Drake: I wasn’t aware of that. Even so, I could understand. If Wayne were to be enamored—which is a great word—of another young artist, I would be like, “Damn, I’m here too!” But at the same time, it happens in more than one situation. It happens with ‘Ye, and I have a great relationship with Jay, and Jay’s got Wale and J. Cole, who’s one of my favorite dudes rapping right now. I’ve happened to have had more success. I made the most money, I have number-one records, those guys don’t have that shit. And it’s just facts, it’s not even my feelings or that I feel I’m more talented. That’s what the game is about, making great music that earns profit. When it comes to my relationship with the new dudes, I’m just excited for them. I get to sit back in a cool position and be like, “Yo, I’m excited to see you do it now because I know what it’s like, it’s gonna be so much fun for you…”

You feel like you’re at the finish line?

Drake: I’m at the starting line. Those guys are at home, putting on their tracksuits, getting ready to make their attack. When J. Cole gets it super-right, I think he’s gonna have a place as a Nas-type character who really stands for hip-hop, but still makes ill records that everybody fucks with.

If J. Cole is Nas, then who are you?

Drake: [Laughs.] I’m the young big homie!

    I talked to Just Blaze on twitter last night, he said in no way did B!nk influence his style of production after he heard the “All My Life” track Free did, which in turned made my theory completely bogus. He also thanked us Nahgers for considering him the GOAT comments producer.

    Drake statemnet was full of arrogance! J.Cole is way more talented than this dude…basically he is saying that J.Cole and Nas stand for hip hop and make good music that everyone fucks with…but him and Jay-z make bull shit music for profit!! He seems to be trying to place himself and J.Cole in the same position of Nas vs Jay!

  21. Harlem World Says:

    Someone leak the finished version of Love and Gunz.

  22. GMLLZ Says:

    Drake and J.Cole will beef at some point….give it a few years…Drake’s talking real shit…but it could come off greasy

  39. D_Block_4_Life Says:

    @ Land

    This is a business at the end of the day and he has had several number 1 hit records with out an album. That in itself is remarkable. He single handily controlled the air waves for a whole year. I know Nahright doesn’t listen to the radio but that doesn’t change the fact that its impressive and commendable.

    He’s had more success than artist that have been in the game for 20 years…he deserves his props….his LP has to be a banger in order to silence the nay sayers

    Are people seriously that impressed with this dude? First time I heard him was on his version of Say You Will and after a minute I stopped listening. A lot of people saying The Warm Up was boring but I really enjoyed that shit.

    Drake didnt do any of that… his handlers did … Drake is a media creation forced on the sucker consumers… just like Vanilla Ice, Britney Spears, Young MC and Hammer … he has ZERO virtuoso talent at anything … he’s safe and marketable… but that has nothing to do with talent…

    I thought we were done with that debate. Granted a Grammy doesn’t mean shit to anyone other than industry people who need people to acknowledge just to get by but Drake makes good records, consistently. He’s had a hell of a run so far and that excerpt is only him speaking facts. What’s there to be aggy about?

    well i damn sure aint none of the above and um shits a classic. End of story. I dont get the hate the kid gets. No is he nice lyrically as a Cole or a Skyzoo or Electronica? Fuck no. But did he make a well rounded album with some hot lyrics some emotional heartfelt songs and some great production? you take away the couple of songs that didnt have original beats and its still one of the best to drop last year if not the best. Best I ever had is this generations Big Poppa. Plus he didnt rap over an obvious isley brothers loop.

    Why all the hate for Drake?

    I can see Drake is acting very arrogant and cocky now.

  76. D_Block_4_Life Says:

    I wasn’t so big on So Far Gone but it did receive critical acclaim…

    Oh and Forever was number 1 and even tho it was billed an Em song, we all know it’s a drake song (his old song actually)….hence him doing the hook and having a verse…

  77. 456 Says:

    t was only loved by girls, kids and queers

    ^he’ll be platinum in a week.

  78. Mr. Meen Says:

    yall guys sound like some bitter old men. Lol its all good but seriously? OBCL2 BP3 all great albums and are probably better albums overall than So Far, but as far as impact its Drake, and the media didnt force him upon us he been grinding for years now. I started listening because I heard Unstoppable. If you dont think he eats that track then you need better ears.

  79. nestle snipes Says:

    Drake has the Oscar De La Hoya x Allen Iverson schwag all bottled into one.

  80. landlord Says:

    DBlock… what virtuoso talent does Drake have?

    he’s an average singer

    he’s an average to good rapper

    he’s gay

    he’s injury prone

    he has ZERO albums

    he’s stupid looking

    what is his virtuoso skill?… what is he great at?

    nothing…

  81. D_Block_4_Life Says:

    Y’all can kick and scream if y’all want too but he’s making/made history. Period.

    says it again. How old are most of the people who are doubting this comment? Please. Big Poppa when it came out was hated by most people who loved Biggie. Just as the one more chance remix was. People couldnt stand that sweet shit and wanted more Unbelievables. It was girls who made those records classics. Best I ever had dope beat nice lyrics catchy hook. whats the difference? kids these days.

  84. nestle snipes Says:

    Drake is an actor turned rapper. They always get the hate.

    Drake can flow with the best of them. I hate to admit it but he gives Wayne a run for his money on every track.

    Wayne bodies every beat and everyone on the same track.

  85. landlord Says:

    OBCL2 BP3 all great albums and are probably better albums overall than So Far

    I wonder what Hovito thinks when Drake is around. Kanye at least manages to lower his ego and impress Jay. I bet Aubrey throws his panties at Jay and Jay does that face he gave to Lil Mama. If anything a lot of these rappers working with this bamma cuz of all the attention he’s getting or their lawyers are Jewish.

    This guy Drake is gassed already. He aint done anything yet. I dont mid people comparing J Cole or Jay Elec to Nas. But I would have a problem with them doing it themselves. Nas and Jay have 10+ albums under their belts. Went platinum/gold everytime out. Been doing this for damn near 2 decades. Nah nigga, you just got here Drake.

    you dont have a hit record till you have an album…

    and also

    some nigga once had a hit record named Disco Duck..

    hit records dont make you great… it means YOUR MANAGEMENT was great…

    great records > hit records

    lol smh at this dude being hyped for his percieved commercial viability above everything else, drake is a mid level talent as far a rap is concerned

    It kills me how rappers diss canibus when there was a point in my life when i truly believed that he was as ill as they come.i will still say that he is one if the best to ever touch the mic.canibus is the only rapper that doesnt need multi syllable rhymes to be nice.

  117. cuban b Says:

    Drake response On the negative feedback from the “Best I Ever Had” video
    “It’s great that people love to see you, but videos don’t propel you like they used to. Your video going number-one doesn’t really mean much anymore. Cause it’s only 106 & Park.”
    ^^^
    This dude dissing 106& park now!

    *he is also a clown, remember he did some sort of deion sanders endzone dance on stage and re-injured himself?*

    Funniest shit i’ve ever read on here and no, it seriously is not the Big Poppa of this generation, and I like homey’s music. Btw, Cudi is basura. that is all.

  121. CHILE ! Says:

    i prefer the underground oriented Drake, even tho Phonte, Elzhi..etc killed him on every fuckin song i guess thats why he went mainstream bullshit wit those basics metaphors and shit

  122. Nahmeless Says:

    land, GTFO with all that you old ass muh-fuggin’ nahhgerrrrr. it’s not drake’s fault that your old ass has trouble relating to his music && therefore enjoying it. this ain’t the 90’s (or 80’s in your case) anymoreeee. quit being so damn ignorant. Drake is FIRE. j. cole is FIRE. they both deserve whatever attention they get.

    1 <3

  123. OD Says:

    *is 40 years old like everyone else*
    *cries because his favorite rapper is a unknown artist*
    *has crab in the bucket mind-state*
    *sucks nas’s dick even tho nas bitched out and signed with jay z*
    *throws stones and lives in a glass house*
    *wishes he was a rapper but whole time was the nerdy dude in the back of the class*

    this is exactly what you nah right niggas are a bunch of bitches. stop hating for once and realize this is why black people never get anywhere

  124. ClarenceD Says:
