Drake Interview w/ Stereogum

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

In this interview, Drake reveals “Lord Knows” was initially a gospel sample which they couldn’t clear so Just had to go back and have a choir come in to re-do it. Later he says, about his writing process on the album:

As far as the raps go, it’s sorta crazy like, I really set out with anger in my heart to prove that I’m not here by accident, I’m not here because of some flow I borrowed from someone else. I’m not here because of one particular flow or one particular moment. There’s nobody that can ever tell me like, Drake is made up of this component and that component. Never. When people thought it was just rap, then I went and wrote like Alicia Keys’ “Unthinkable.” “Best I Ever Had” I never used some other rapper’s flow in it. People try and downplay the amount of different areas that I’ll touch on, so when I wanted to do this album, I’m going to make it a purpose. I’m going to make it a point to not only NOT use any of the flows they’re talking about, but I want to create new things that I know that people will have to work harder to create their own new shit or they’re just going to end up copying me. I say on the album, my manager’s name is Gee Roberson so I say:

Roberson boost the rate up / Time that somebody paid up / A lot of these niggas came up off a style that I made up / But if all I hear is me / Who should I be afraid of?

That’s some real shit.

He also goes on to say that he’ll propose to Nicki Minaj on the spot and he takes back the “I wish I wasn’t famous” line from Thank Me Later.

Video: Drake – Best I Ever Had (Director’s Cut)

Monday, July 27th, 2009

So I’m not sure exactly what’s the difference between this cut and the version you saw, but eskay took one for the team and watched the whole thing again and says that there are some longer “stretching” parts. Either way, it’s a video that’s worth revisiting.

If people are still confused over this video, they shouldn’t be. It’s just because they were expecting the typical rap video from these guys because this song just organically took off on its own. If you think they made a mistake with this video it might be simply because you made the mistake of thinking that just because the song was doing good on the radio that they’d settle for the same destiny everyone else would when they meet with success. This video just proves that they still don’t, or never did, intend on going that route, even though it’s nice, and that it’s always been about something else. That “Best I Ever Had” being on the charts wasn’t necessarily the end goal, but just a nice surprise. It just made getting things done much simpler. I frankly like the song more now that there are these visuals to go along with it, I didn’t like it as much as his other tracks when I first heard it. This song wasn’t even supposed to be on the mixtape…

They revised the previous artwork, that was deemed too obscure, for the single’s arrival on iTunes. Download Drake’s “Best I Ever Had” here. It’s already #3 on iTunes’ Top Songs of the Week, behind two Black Eyed Peas cuts. So you know, make it do what it do.

Artwork by Darkie, who brought back the theme from So Far Gone.

This week was also the debut of Young Money’s “Every Girl” on iTunes.

jay-z-drake

Jay-Z overload (n/h), I know. You’re fed up of seeing Drake’s name, no problem. But if I could just bring your attention to this little piece of information that may have fallen on deaf ears, it could be a completely unconfirmed rumor, but it’s Saturday morning and I’m gonna go in…

You might already be trying to convince yourself that you’ve never even liked Jay-Z’s singles, and that’s fine… but just think that even if Drake is only on there to sing, they’re definitely going back and forth on his album [||].

The comments on this site might not have shown it, but just looking at the zShare numbers added to Jay-Z shutting down Twitter last night… This might actually be an epic summer for music fans. If Jay AND Common both sat down with Kanye and No ID for their albums, plus if Yeezy’s planning to drop again – added to the all the (new) dope acts  who are already planning to make an impact…. When has it ever been this good? (no old head)

ALSO: You won’t believe what Drizzy Splizzy told me, it’s also regarding D.O.A. and it might add another perspective to last night’s events. Keep your eyes glued, coming shortly. (poz)

FURTHERMORE: No Miss Info, but I heard something else from an independent source about these two (pictured above), but Jay’s favorite line…

This song was playing while I was out last night and it didn’t even hit me, but it was kind of a big deal. The song, along with So Far Gone, will be available on  iTunes shortly and even though this might not be your (my) favorite Drake song, I think we should all support it. If this song does crazy numbers on iTunes – which is really the indicator nowadays (sorry zShare) – like it did on the Billboard charts… it’ll show that artists don’t even that need that major label push anymore.  It might also convince him to go indie as he has hinted at in recent interviews, despite the outstanding deals he may have on the table.

As for the single’s image above, notice how it’s paying homage to the web culture we currently live in. If you come to this website then you know exactly what it’s referring to as well, where as other people may not. That also goes to show the net’s involvement in his rise, even though getting the track plays on Hot 97 had a huge part in it being this precise song blowing up, it’s still nice to see the web’s presence getting some acknowledgement .
