I am truly enjoying my life right now. Its been so long since I have wrote anything on here because I feel like for a while I was trying to digest it all and save it for the music. But its finally set in that I am living my dreams and doing with all my closest friends from Toronto. I wake up and never know what to expect from any given day but good or bad I always learn something from it. I have decided that I am going to push "It's Never Enough" and focus completely on delivering Take Care to you all. I feel like my mind is truly ready to make this next album NOW and I don't want that feeling to escape me. My mother is doing well for all who have been asking. She went to her first swimming class the other day and won gold...not really but you know what I mean. OVO gang is all smiles and 40 is making some of the best music I have heard in my entire career. I am in the airport right now headed to LA to meet up with Boi 1da tonight. Its all feeling right. Its truly been a pleasure to speak again. Thank you for all your energy. Soon. Guidance.

A luxury once enjoyed becomes a necessity. I need it to last until I'm part of the past.

gotta get 'I'm Ready For You' on the mixtape or album or push it to the radio or somethin... best song you've ever put out in my opinion

Wesley Phillips said...

Disappointed Its never enough is getting pushed back because I was real excited to hear that, but I understand, the album is more important, Take Care will be epic! love how Drake talks to you like you are part of the crew and right there with him for the ride. The journey is wonderful to watch & I hope as well some of the rnb tracks will be included- his rnb is better than everybody else's for real

Cheesy F. Baby haha niceee. & I'm glad you're enjoying life & living it up. No It's Never Enough :/ but I'm excited for Take Care & the new music that you're going to bring to us. Haha swimming class is hard yo, I tried it and quit at level 3 lmao but that's probably because I cannot tread water lol hmph. Glad you're all smiles :). & hmm how about becoming a part of the future of music as well? Yes yes? Well you've already accomplished that, even if you don't think you have yet. Te amo & Take Care. :)

Take it to Egypt, let some of the scenes be from Egypt. I want to see the people, the land, the water!!At least 1 video from Egypt help the people overcome the hate from with-in. Music is a symbol, power, a type of energy that heals or hates it could go both ways. I no your on top of the world now, let a little part of your success be thru giving back to who you see need it. It's a world gone mad!!!

Anonymous said...

Drizzy you are so fortunate...its amazing to see someone who is so humble and appreciative of the life he has. Your music as been an inspiration to me, the past year and a half have been a little difficult and a friend of mine gave me an old mix tape and I mustve listened to it 50 times, and since then I've been totally hooked. Thank you for getting me thru rough times. Your fans love you more than you can imagine...not to mention, you ain't too hard on the eyes darling =)

Good to hear from you, Drake. Sounds like life is at an all-time high for you right now, and I'm sure I speak for millions when I say we're all behind you. There are so few things in life that bring us pure and unadulterated joy; I just hope you can realize and hold on to these moments for as long as you can. Keep your head up.

Chantii said...

So great to see you post something on here again, Drake. This entire blog is amazing and I love how you make the fans feel like they're really sharing (most) of your experiences with you. Kind of sad that "It's Never Enough" is being pushed back but, nevertheless, I am super excited for "Take Care" and cannot wait to hear the final product. I know it will be AMAZING.

Glad to hear that your mother is doing well. I remember when you tweeted that she was getting surgery; I prayed for her for an entire week.

Again, thank you for taking the time out to say speak to the fans and I cannot wait until "Take Care" is finally released!!

Peace, Happiness, & Love!

Drake, I'll like to thank you for inspiring me. Your words, your flow, your courage and confidence. You are truly talented, you have a gift.

Thanks to you I have decided to create music, write lyrics, just become creative. Get absorbed by life!

I can relate to you, you don't rap about the struggles in life, you rap about life as we know it. I respect that... alot!

It is nice to know all is well with you and your mother... When hearing about your mom my first thought was that I could stand to take swiming lessons, lol...I am am happy to know 40 is doing good. Of course I do not know him however, he seems like a cool dude who is truely in your corner. It is nice you hear you touch base again. I know sometimes you need to get to yourself to get your thoughts together, however, with you, it is worth the wait, lol... Enjoy yourself while you are out here on my turf, lol... I love LA !! Take Care, P.S. love the pics..

Thalassa Cox said...

Man, it feels good seeing that comment, coming from a fan that knew you as Drake before she knew you even acted as jimmy on Degrassi - not even knowing Degrassi existed - feels like we may get back that special touch you add to hiphop when you dropped songs like july, Fear and Bria's interlude. Coming from the Caribbean you are like my Bob Marley of modern day rap, sounds foolish but being a law student i can assimilate wanting your acclaimed talents to last until you are one of the honorees, well at least thats what i strive for when Im up at all hours sustaining myself on three hours of sleep. Respect to your competence and btw check out your myspace page, lots are still celebrating you.

You are such an inspiration.

I can't wait for the new album..alwAys remember to do you and to do what feels right to you...not doing it for the critics ..much love from Germany, Berlin was great :)

You're making me so proud to be a a fan right now... this almost made me tear up! I love seeing you post on here, showing those pictures and moments with us.

Stacey Nicole said...

For most of us, you have been a true blessing in our lives for almost 9 years. My admiration for you is deeply personal, if you only knew how much you've impacted my life, especially the last 5 years. You have pulled me through my most tragic time of my life and your existence continues to give me the greatest happiness. For that, I thank you. I will continue to support your dreams because they are incredibly, beautiful ones. To me, whatever the cost of a CD, a concert, an event you're hosting, or a movie I pay will never truly compensate what you give, "a priceless you". I look forward to the "Take Care" CD, cheering you on at the Grammys & Junos (win win win!) and jamming at OVO Fest. I send love & prayer your way everyday - for you, for Mama Graham (thank you for that wonderful update about her, I'm happy she is thriving and can share in your success), for 40 to have continued strength against his MS, for Niko's father and the entire OVO - ATF family when traveling and in general. It's so good to see you on your blog. Hope you continue to share your thoughts more often. Written with love, Take Care.

Anonymous said...

Drizzy you gotta just drop the tracks from It's Never Enough already man. We're dying to hear your new RnB stuff. Killing me your pushing this mixtape back even farther. Keep up the good work, So Far Gone has been my favorite CD for the past year and a half and is an absolute classic for hip-hop and RnB.

Anonymous said...

Drake us loyal fans want to say thank you so much and that we appreciate you taking out time from your busy schedule to let us know what's up. I personally felt goosebumps reading that, I'm sincerely happy for you and all that you have accomplished so far. You are something truly special, your own species your own category, something spectacular. I love your personality, your music, your motives, your ideas and thoughts. I don't think your realize the power your music has on people and the effects, but just know whatever you got or whatever is that you're doing, continue with it. NEVER change it up, always remain you, never let the fame and money corrupt your whole being, stay gold Aubrey. If one day you feel it's all getting to your head, drop it, put the music on pause if you have to so you make time to recover, then pick it up again but just don't tamper with your raw talent, it's too precious to lose or waste. Don't follow your heart, that'll only lead you to where the rest are. Follow your MIND, because with that you'll astonish the world. Keep up the great work, looking for to the next album or mixtape whatever you feel like releasing, I'll stay tune to it. You probably won't ever read this, but I hope some day in some other time some one else will deliver this message to you.
A sincere fan from Brentwood, Long Island, much love <3

Its mind blowing how you reach out to so many people, but I can't fault it, i'm a guy and no homo your words, sounds touch places where not many people can. I don't think there's something unique/distinctive to say that hasn't been said already.
If your reading this or anybody else who is and knows when the release dates are on Drake's new stuff - Fill me in.
I can't control my eagerness to hear your new stuff, got cats fiend-in out here in the UK too yo!
Jan 14th (B'ham) was a night to remember all thanks to Drake. Thank u so much, it's a pleasure to be blessed with the sounds created and mastered by you!
Much Love from the U.K (Wolverhampton) if you ever heard of that Lol.

Drake..
In my mind I tear into your soul to search for the place that most only think they know of...the magic that God sprinkled on you take many aback ..for I possess it in multitudes as well, only with a different agenda.. be blessed, and never stop being so beautiful..keep your bubble alive as you do so well! You can pop it for me tho! =0) it would be unnatural to think you were anything but...a gift from God..

Its great that you and your team is happy..you guys are HAWT! Enjoy.

Drake you are hands down one of the realest people on thi earth. Can't wait till the day our paths cross, if there's one thing I learned from you is that with enough determination, all is possible. So thank you for the enlightenment and for your music cause you offer a different perspective into the world of success.

It's so nice that you took some time to write to us. We love hearing from you.. I was especially excited that you wrote right under a cheese hear- I am originally from WI and ecstatic that the Packers finally won a super bowl :) This entry from you really reaffirmed my compassion for you and your music and I have decided to go today (Valentines Day) to go get my aubrey & drake tattoo on both wrists. thank you for being such an inspiration to me. I cannot wait for your new album. Everything you do is set in gold.. simply because of how genuine and amazing you are.

Gina said...

dont know what else to say besides. i love drake. i feel like people underestimate you and your rapping ability. i can not wait for "Take Care" so until then.... Take Care.

DRAKE,
I AGREE, THE PERFORMANCE WAS A BIT TO SEXUAL, DON'T KNOW WHY RHIANNA TRYNA PUT PUT HERSELF OUT THERE LIKE THAT BUT LIKE SOME ANONYMOUS PERSON SAID IT DOES KINDA MAKE IT LOSE RESPECT FOR YOUR JUSS BECAUSE A LOT OF LADIES THINK OF YOU AS SWEET HEART, IN REFERENCE OF YOUR SONGS: SLOW DOWN, SOMETHING, CECE'S INTERLUDE, BRIA'S INTERLUDE, ON MY WAY, SHUT IT DOWN ETC. WE KINDA DON'T WANNA HEAR THE MEDIA SAY YOU WERE WITH THIS JUMPOFF THIS NIGHT AND THAT GROUPIE THE OTHER YA' KNOW, WHAT HAPPEN TO THE WEDDING PLANNER CHICK THAT MOVED TO ATLANA THAT YOU MENTION IN ONE OF YOUR SONGS?? THOSE ARE THE LADIES WE LOVED TO HEAR ABOUT, AIM FOR IT. NOT THE ONES WHO SWITCH IT EVER WEEK AND PUT THEMSELVES PUT THERE LIKE THAT. WELL HOPE YOU GET TO THIS AND WOULD REALLY BE COOL IF I GOT YOUR THOUGHT ABOUT THIS.

You are so inspirational. I can seriousy feel what kinda guy you are. You want a girl who liked you before the fame, you just want people to concentrate on just yo name and music, not the accessories. you aint asking for much else apart from health and happiness for you and your loved ones.. I wish you would give me a chance but you'd never find me.. I wish you so many best wishes..x

Drake, There is not a day that goes by where I don't listen to a song by you. I am more than proud to say that your voice certainly moves me. No other artist has previously been able to master singing and rapping the way you do. I admire your talent and wish you the best of luck for your future. You are definitely one of those artists whose name shall remain in history. I saw you live at Hammersmith Apollo (08/01/11) and may I say, Wow, it was such an epic experience. You exceeded my expectations big time. Thank you Drake for being such a great inspiration and giving us some REAL music! <3

Love, a fan in London :)

RaeRae said...

I've been waiting for Drake to write something on here. It was so nice to read that. Your fans love and support you.

tiggz said...

im lovin' the personal picture and comment posts. Keep shittin' on'em drizzy. Best of luck on your new role. It's unfortunate you didn't have the time to continue filming "Us & Them." The pilot and trailer alone are hilarious. Would have been great to see the New Fresh Prince. Nick Cannon n Will never did it this ill!
P.S
the new whip is hella dope, being a shoe man myself- I have to see the other 2/3 of the Jordan collection lol and the Weezy F Baby pic is fucking jokes! God Bless, Regards

Anonymous said...

dear drake,

this photo set confirms that you are irrelevant now. there are endless amounts of rappers that represent themselves this way; what made you fresh was that you did something no one else was on - your rhymes were real and your production was unheard of. plus the real trick was that your fans could relate to you... you had soul.

now you post pics of a set of shoes and a set of cars and go in on expensive mcproduction that sounds like all the other cross-over radio pop rap... so does every other over-paid and boring rapper that no one cares about for longer than the shelf life of their mchit.

congrats you made it man but you stabbed yourself in the back.

Keep doing u man ima be a fan threw thick and thin and when u dead and gone!!! peace and much love

drake you inspire me. enjoy life ,

Anonymous said...

Damn @ Anon February 17, 2011 3:02 PM

That hurt me to read lol. I get what you said but I really feel like this post was not an attempt to brag about the things he's acquired through his success. TO ME it seemed more personal; like he wanted to share some things/moments from his life with us. As a fan I can appreciate that.

As far as the mainstream themes in the music, I think that people (including me) are so in love with Drake's early mixtapes that they forget that he's not that person anymore. His life has changed drastically. He's going to rap about different things now. It might be repetitive in rap but that's his reality now so *shrugs*

Anyways, love the post. Drake you're amazing. You're refreshing, smart and genuine and I love you dearly. When I listen to your music, I feel like I know you lol. I'm not crazy! We all feel like that, but I think that's what make you so standout. It seems like everything you say comes from the heart.

<3 you forever
Mali

Michelle_C said...

DRAKE i wish you would recognize me and mention me as one of your biggest fans. Ive wrote you this on twitter before and no am going to write it again. Aliyah was and is your role model and inspiration and just how you said in a an interview that aliyah had the most impact on your carreer and you found comfort in her music well thats what i see you as. its so easy too relatr to yur music . God bless you and your mother. hope everything goes and stays well . - michelle . <3

You inspire people on a daily basis and show what it truly means to appreciate life, love and family. Your charisma shines through your smile and your music is legendary. Continue on making great music and please put "I get lonely too" on the new cd. P.S Come to Minneapolis and I will spend my whole life savings to attend..

What up Drake! This is my first time posting on your blog but I just wanted to slide through if say hats off to you bruh! I wasn't sure what to expect from the kid from Degrassi but you surely proved me wrong as hell! Thank Me Later is an incredible album and I love the fact that unlike ALOT of artists today especially in mainstream hiphop you actually have something to say! I commend you for your talents and hope to one day be able to work with you in the future!

Where's that Number 1 with 9th Wonder? Thats what i need on my playlist right about now. I'd also take a J.Cole produced track with Hov, Drizzy, Wayne, and Cole. Too far?

jeremiah said...

Why are you drinking the Dolce? You should be drinking Chateau D'Yuem.

I'm a little late.. but better late than never, right? Drake, you're amazing. I don't know if you ever read these, but here's to hoping so. You've changed my life, and my view. Growing up my dream was to become involved with music or dance in some form, and even though I haven't managed to succeed in that yet, YOU have inspired me. Your music... your words, showing us who you truly are, has given me a perspective on life that i truly needed. Thank you, not later.. now. For being you, for taking the time to give us the music that you and i, and the rest of your fans love. Thank You. You're such a great guy, and I truly wish I was lucky enough to meet you, and thank you face to face. but if you read this, it'll suffice for now. Take care, Aubrey. And keep being the amazing person you are.
