Drake Interview w/ The Source

Off the announcement of his four Grammy nominations, Drake spoke to The Source last Friday about Kanye’s 5 Mic rating, his European tour with J. Cole and his dream Grammy performance.

Kanye’s 5 Mics Album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

“Kanye put together a great album. It’s a really solid project. I think people had so much time to sit with the songs, that it threw them off a little bit when the album came out and so many of those songs were already on it. But at the same time, when you get that project and you can imagine getting all those songs on one day and we didn’t have to deal with the power of leaks and internet stuff. I definitely understand why people hold that album at such high regard. It’s a great project and it’s definitely given me something to strive for because perfect scores are hard to come by nowadays and I’ve seen a lot of them on that album. That definitely lets me know what I’m gunning for on this next project. ”

Gearing Up To Tour Europe With J. Cole

“Just being with Cole and going to Europe for the first time, I wanted to do something different set wise and setlist wise. I wanted to bring an adaptive show out there. Cole is in my city tonight, man we are just having fun. Just having fun being young and rapping and living and enjoying it. Being good, responsible people, I mean we meet on a whole bunch of levels. It’s great because before I got to talk to him I didn’t know where our relationship was heading. When I finally got to meet him I realized like ‘oh man, this guy is so easy to like.’ I know what people are trying to do between us, but I’m going to like this guy and we are going to be friends and make great music together, hopefully for years to come. Cole is one of those guys that I can coexist with even though we do two completely different things. I mean, the one area where we meet on is lyricism, but that should be the case with any rapper regardless of genre. I meet on lyricism with a lot of people. There are a lot of lyrical cats out there doing great shit. I mean, it’s really easy for me and Cole to get along, and getting along with someone like that usually leads to great music so being on tour that long and me having a new album on the way and him finishing his project, you never know. It’s something I want to do so I’m all in man, it’s whatever. ”

My Dream GRAMMY Performance

I would love to do a medley with me Wayne and Nicki. Only because having Wayne is so amazing, and the year Nicki has had is so great, and to share a stage with my family would be incredible man. That would be the craziest thing, or performing “What’s My Name,” with Rihanna would be crazy. I haven’t performed that yet.

    I mean.. true.. but my only gripe with Cole is just that his hook game is NOT good.. Id pay money to hear Wiz put new hooks on all of Friday Night lights.. Im willing to bet that the first JCole single has a feature on the hook

    I think FNL proved that a Janelle Monae or Erykah Badu hook would be perfect. He needs that r&b touch.

    Right now, I’d rather listen to Wiz than Cole. That could change soon. Once Cole learns to write better hooks or saves enough tour money to pay Ms. Badu for one.

    But I’ll always prefer listening to Curren$y over Cole. That will never change.
