KO: Let’s jump to hip-hop. I’m just gonna shoot this next questions out there. What are your top five albums of all time?
DRAKE: Top 5 hip hop albums for me, because I’m young, for me.
KO: Doesn’t matter that you’re young. Top 5?
DRAKE: Black Album.
DRAKE: Clipse, Lord Willing.
KO: Okay. I could see that.
DRAKE: Uh, this is not an album, but The Little Brother/[Mick] Boogie mixtape, that was like pivotal in my life. And then I would have to say, uh, I say Life After Death. And then I will say a toss up between The Love Below and Aquemini.
KO: Is that five?
DRAKE: That’s five.
KO: Oh, we actually share one. Life After Death is in my top 5 too.
DRAKE: And then that’s without….that’s life changing. That’s without, you know, Carter 2 and other things that pushed me to rap. Those were definitive albums that opened my sound. Oh, and Snoop Dogg, Doggystyle. Those were just definitive albums that opened my mind to sound and melody and cadences and flows and you know. Those were like really important to me.
