Drake Covers the 150th Issue of XXL [Photo]
With Drake’s new album Nothing Was The Same coming out right around the corner(Sept. 17th) and his recent 4th annual OVO fest this past weekend, it really feels like Drake is brewing up something that just might solidify him as legendary if we don’t deem him so already. He recently graced the cover of the 150th issue of XXL appropriately headlined “Watch The Throne”. Here is some of what Drizzy had to say in the article:
“I remember coming into this year thinking, “How am I going to cut through all these people and shine?” I’ve never been part of a year when so many legends are dropping projects. How am I going to be seen? I’m going to be like the kid waving in the background in the photo with all of his tall relatives. And, I guess, those were my initial thoughts, and not to say that I haven’t enjoyed some of the stuff that has come out this year, but it didn’t pan out the way I thought it was going to. I think I am going for it, to really establish what are murmurs or things being said quietly, “Um, I think that Drake might actually…” On September 17th I want people to be like, “Oh, we were right.””
We’re excited to see what new material Drake has brought to the table and lets hope its done in traditional Drake form.
