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: So Far Gone Is MTV’s Mixtape Of The Year

Monday, December 14th, 2009

Congratulations.

If Drake is not a household name for everyone just yet, the 23-year-old is on the front porch, ringing the bell. That he’s done it without even putting out an official album shows just how far he’s come in 12 months. What a journey it’s been for the Toronto native in 2009.

I first met Drake last year in Los Angeles around Grammy time. Lil Wayne’s co-manager Cortez Bryant introduced me to Drake as a new “singer” that they were working with. Drizzy was cool but barely spoke: At the time, there was no way I’d envision him as having a shot at making the MTV News’ “Hottest MCs in the Game” list, let alone finishing in the top three. He was a “singer,” right?

Everyone — including Drake — is probably surprised at how much he’s achieved this year. On the basis of its quality and impact, Mixtape Daily can say that So Far Gone isn’t just the top mixtape of 2009, but one of the greatest of all time. As a body of work, the project is better than most albums from the past few years.

fear

Here’s the full version of the new song that you can find on the So Far Gone EP that will be available September 15th.

Drake – Fear | zShare

“I stay away from niggas that could land me in some trouble/and I’ma keep it honest, I’m so tired of being subtle/it’s just me, 40, O and Neeks standing in a huddle”

Bonus: Drake – Fear (Instrumental, produced by DJ Khalil)

Do not rap over this beat, because nobody cares. It’s simply for the listeners. I played it maybe 100 times yesterday.

Drake Interview w/ Complex

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009

Complex spoke to Drake yesterday to discuss the new record deal, the Best I Ever Had video (click play,) discusses some of the fuckshit that went down at the BET Awards

Complex: For real. Going back to your music, “Best I Ever Had” jumped to #3 on the Billboard charts. And then you announced yesterday that you signed your deal with Universal…

Drake: Nah…I definitely want to clear this up, I didn’t sign to Universal. I’m actually signed to… a lot of people were telling me, “Oh, you should do it independent.” I’m actually 100% independent. I signed to Cortez Bryant and G. Roberson, my managers, so I signed a joint venture between Aspire Music Group, which is them, and Young Money. So the only part that Universal plays is P&D [pressing and distribution]. I’m not a Universal artist. I’m signed to myself.

Complex: What does Young Money bring to the table?

Drake: Since the beginning of this, Lil’ Wayne has always put himself out there on behalf of me, from spitting my verse at the VMAs, to jumping on the songs that I needed him on and always promoting me. Right now it’s more about building up Young Money, as opposed to what Young Money brings to the table at this point. Obviously, what Young Money brings to the table is Lil’ Wayne. He’s a powerhouse and I felt it was only fair to stay loyal. I thought it was only fair for him to get that look and I wanted the YM logo on the album and to make sure that he knows that I don’t take what he did for me for granted.

Complex: You were entertaining other offers from Atlantic and Interscope, right?
