Drake covers the July issue of Gentlemen’s Quarterly magazine with the headline line Drake: Started From The Bottom Now He’s Here. In the cover story, he talks about the Chris Drama, his thoughts on love, his upcoming album Nothing Was The Same and more. In the interview, he also reveals sampling Whitney Houston on one of the song from his much awaited third album which is expected to be released later this Summer. Below are a few excerpts.
On other rappers hating on him:
“You notice they don’t criticize the music itself, though…I’m okay with that.”
On being abstinent, sort of:
“You know the way fighters don’t fuck before the fight? Sometimes I feel like I’m so focused on training my body and getting my mind right to create this album that sex isn’t one of my main priorities. If someone is around that I know and trust, I’m down. But I’m not going to end up with some stranger at this party.”
On Chris Brown drama:
“I hear he has everything he could want now. I don’t want my name to be synonymous with that guy’s name. I really don’t. I wish we could sit down just like you and me are right now, and talk it out man-to-man. But that’s not going to happen. I’m not confrontational, but if someone challenges, I’m not going to back down. If I think about it too much, I feel it wrapping around my foot, like I get a feeling it could end really badly…Like, it gets really dark.”
