Drake….still on FIRE!!

I really dont care what people say, Drake is sick. Truly an Amazing Talent. Drake along with J. Cole and Jay Electronica will help keep hip-hop burning for the next 10 + years.

Check out the new COMPLEX with my man DRAKE on the cover.

DRAKE HYPE or DRIVE

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!
