Drake has finally had it with people calling him lonely and emotional. In a recent interview in his hometown of Canada, the rapper had an hour long interview with the show Q he expressed his frustrations with the incorrect assumptions about his personal life and childhood. Here are some of the highlights:
“I’m 26 working as hard as I possibly can with my friend who I grew up with, making my family happy. I’m so sick of people saying I’m lonely and emotional and associating me with this longing for a woman. I hate that, man. It bothers me so much because I don’t make…I do make music that makes you feel something, [but] I’m actually not that guy in real life. I’m very happy. I’m not content by any means, I want to keep working, but I’m a happy person. I’m very excited. My life is constantly exciting. It’s not some sad, depressing story.[...]I make my music for the purpose of driving at nighttime. That’s what I make my music for.”
On people thinking he grew up rich:
“This is another thing that bothers me, I didn’t grow up in a white neighborhood. I grew up on Weston Road for a lot of my life. I only moved to Forest Hill because my mother is an incredible woman who was willing to live far beyond her means for the sake of her family. We rented someone’s basement and the first floor. I didn’t have some mansion. I grew up with a mother that was deep in debt because she wanted the best for her family.”
Well, there you have it. Check out the video below as Drake sets the record straight about more false claims about his personal life, getting clearance from females before he puts out songs about them and why he absolutely hates social media.
