Drake graces the cover of RESPECT magazine. This cover will hit stores and newstankds on 5.29.12
Drake is on this month cover of Complex. Here are a few things he had to say in his interview.
I’d love for you to explain that line “My top 5 either lost it or they ain’t alive.”
Drake: I just felt like at that time, my favorite rappers weren’t moving me. I was like, do I really rap better than this guy that I look up to? What happened, did something change? I won’t even say names, just based off the fact that, it wasn’t meant to, it could be anybody.
You put your top 5 in there. You ask yourself, are they still going as hard as they were? Or did something change in our ears or our minds? I don’t know. And just me kind of realizing like damn, has it really been that long, do my favorite rappers really only have like one or two albums left before it’s time to call it quits? Or it gets awkward because they are rapping at a certain age about shit that isn’t relateable?
Do you want to stop before you get a point where people are like, “Why is Drake still rapping?”
Yeah, I know I’m going to get to that point. Only because my career is thriving at 24. The only other person reminiscent of that is Wayne’s who had an opportunity when he was super young. That’s very different from all these other rappers. A lot of these careers took off at 28, 29.
Drake makes the cover of this upcoming Source cover and Drake also spoke about Kanye West in the article. The cover hits newsstands nationwide on November 15th.
When I was a kid trying to figure out what I liked, it was [Kanye] who I related to the most. He was an artist, in every sense, from his cover art to his music. Now, I would say he was a really great competitor….”
