Drake Talks ‘Take Care,’ His Ideal Woman, Lil Wayne vs. Jay-Z
Drizzy Drake isn’t afraid to tell the truth. Most rappers succumb to the cliché tough guy answers and posturing when it comes to tough questions. However, October’s Very Own recently spoke from the heart when GQ put him in the hot seat.
GQ: You announced the title of this album, Take Care, with us back in December. What does it mean?
Drake: No one has actually asked me that yet. I came up with the name when I was on a bus in Birmingham, England, going to a show. “Take Care” is this thing we use in passing conversation to dismiss bullshit like, “Oh, you couldn’t make it on time? Oh, take care, take care.” We’ve always used that and then I really took so much care making this album. I knew I was going to go home and take longer than six months, I knew that I was literally going to take care of making this project and be attentive, be clear, be immersed in it. “Take Care” worked.
