I spotted this interview yesterday but got the chance to view it only now.
“F*ck outta here n*gga, like that’s the best you can do in the mainstream? No, I’m not trying to hear that. That’s really not where I’m at. When I saw Coldplay and Jay-Z at the Grammy’s, I was like that’s just f*cking ridiculous. That’s hot. What would have made it iller was if it was Jay-Z with like a younger band…Jay-Z is a big rapper who taught a lot of lessons over the years but it was always up to the listener. Maybe you can fault them, maybe you can’t. Maybe you’re supposed to have your eyes on it. There’s too many ‘maybes,’ that’s my point. This new generation just ain’t on their feet.”
After the jump Drake gives his 2 cents.
Soulja Boy is the smartest artist of our generation, I think period and I think out of anybody. Whoever it is, whether it’s him or his team or the people around him, whoever has the thoughts to do the things he does, is genius and I’m so happy for him.
