Drake’s run has been candy coated with success ever since his 2009 release of So Far Gone, and now six years later, the 6 God is at the top of his game and arguably one of hip-hop’s biggest stars and brightest talents, which obviously comes with a lot of pressure.
With toothpick in hand coupled with a “Yeah, I got this” wink, Aubrey is the cover star for Fader’s, Fader 100. During the rare sit-down, Drizzy says he’s recently began driving himself places. When his career catapulted, he ventured to the back of the vehicle and would often be taxied about town by drivers, which as he explains it, took away from his creativity.
“I’ve been deprived of driving for a long time,” he says. “Riding to the studio with a driver and security and stuff, you lose something.”
Whip game aside, Drake doesn’t shy away from his beef with friend turned foe Meek Mill. It was during a charity kickball game, which he won by the way, that Mr. Graham first learned of Meek’s now infamous Twitter rant.
After recording “Charged Up” Drake assumed a response in kind would soon be on his doorsteps, but to no avail, Meek’s response never showed up, which almost annoyed him even more.
“This is a discussion about music, and no one’s putting forth any music,” Drake questions. “You guys are gonna leave this for me to do? This is how you want to play it? You guys didn’t think this through at all—nobody? You guys have high-ranking members watching over you. Nobody told you that this was a bad idea, to engage in this and not have something? You’re gonna engage in a conversation about writing music, and delivering music, with me? And not have anything to put forth on the table?”
Sounds like Drake was more upset at the lack of strategy than the actual verbal offense.
