I know, I know.. Y'all are busy dudes.. That's why y'all have to check out my new news website that I launched on Saturday; it will decrease the amount of time you have to do jumping around since all the quality news will be in one place.. So, with that said, when you get a chance (no rush ha) check out The Convo Piece at:

theconvopiece.com

P.S. The site may have a tendency to increase one's conversational skills.

I thought the video for Best I ever had was funny FWIW especially the "but Drake all you ever taught us how to do was stretch.." *cut to a scene of the two girls stretching* *cut back to Drake having a lame excuse about the stretching* lmao
I love reading a Drake interview because its always real without having to talk shit about someone else or be on some fake hyped up shit! <3

RE: Best I Ever Had Video

if it was funny I would've laughed but it wasn't, nothing funny, creative, or original about breast bouncing in slow mo. Juvenile and middle school yes.

IslandChynaDoll said...

I liked the Best I Ever Had Video - I got it. I loved So Far Gone in general - I caught the wave after this album - then went back and got the older stuff... I like Drake's growth as an artist and as a man - much success to you - waiting patiently for Thank Me Later. Oh and how does one find out where Drake will be performing - and if it is in a city near me?

Andrew said...

drake, in music we move forward, not backwards, please dont release comeback season for free. i heard somewhere you were thinking about doing so. comeback season is great, but its not so far gone. thank me later

Kaitlin said...

Aubrey Drake Graham, every time I read an interview of yours, I smile the whole time. And when I see a video of you, I smile even harder. You're one of the most inspiring people in the world today.

Chanz said...

How the fuck didn't people like Best I Ever Had video.. it was genius and funny as hell. Especially but drake all you ever did was teach us how to stretch.. Stretching is an essential part of the game that's why I spend so much time on it... I watch it over and over and never once don't laugh. I've been a fan for quite some time now.. of your rap as well as lil Jimmy lol. and I'm so excited that people are finally realizing who the fuck you are !

*~Cliche*~ said...

I just want to say...I understand where Drake is coming from in this interview. He just don't want to make music but great music. I'm sure the hype around Drake will not be dying down anytime soon. Whether his album sell millions, or hundreds I will forever be there supporting Drizzy! I Love you BOO!

Vanda said...

Like everybody already said, I really need to get this.
I mean who doesn't like Drake, everybody would do anything to meet him.
All I can do about it is just hope :P
Since I am on the other side of the world --"

LiLMeXiCo said...

U know Drizzy sho right bout the incident with him tearing his ACL, sumtimes you need to literally stop N take a breather N take things around you into prespective.. had sum similar in my life happen when I was involved in a car-accident, but thas just how I took it as well..

rep for the abstract

Xavier said...

Drake's drive to create music that is captivating is what's giving him his hype. As long as his drive does not die out, then neither will his hype.

Kim said...

THIS IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE FEW INTERVIEWS IVE READ FROM TOP TO BOTTOM-THE SOUTH AFRICAN MEDIA IS NOT REALLY THAT IN-SYNC WITH THE AMERICAN MEDIA-I GAINED MORE RESPECT 4 U AND WHAT U DO CAUSE I NEVA REALISED WHAT U HAD TO GO THROUGH...

Enjoyed reading your interview, and watching the vid. I like that you keep it real, that you are real. Anybody who really listens to your music, and understands it will see you. About the "Best i ever had" vid... There will always be haters. You can't please everyone. But hey you enjoyed it, and the majority enjoyed that's what counts right?! Well keep killing it!!
Much love sent your way!!

marilyn said...

The article is dope.
It's good how you express your true thoughts on your music for people to understand so it doesn't seem like you do it for the publicity or the fame or money, which are all great, but you'd rather have people understand were you're coming from and also have those records that people can relate to and really enjoy instead of just rapping about a whole bunch of shit that most people will never know about in there life.

It really catches peoples attention.

You're doing good.
keep it up.

Hunny_Tast-E said...

I love this man's focus! He sees his fame but recognizes at any moment it can be snatched...he recognizes "fans" that want him physically and FANS that will be ride or die... I love his humble attitude, his optimistic perceptions and his multi-faceted outlook. Do ya thang boo.

Fantastic article read.
