Remember about a year ago, there was gossip about Drake and Rihanna? Well Drake finally confirmed all the rumors. The New York Times recently published an in-depth article on Drake, highlighting his rise from Jimmy of Degrassi High to being one of the “most innovative figure in hip-hop”. In the article, Drake finally speaks about his shortcake “short-lived” relationship with Rihanna. He also goes on to talk about how he doesn’t feel safe in his hometown anymore, since last year he got robbed at gunpoint… The article is a really good read.
“Fireworks” there’s a verse about Rihanna, who asked him last year to write a song for her new album; the two soon began seeing each other regularly, though they never publicly confirmed their brief relationship.
“I was a pawn,” Drake said. The song he wrote for her never got released. “You know what she was doing to me? She was doing exactly what I’ve done to so many women throughout my life, which is show them quality time, then disappear,” he said. “I was like, wow, this feels terrible.”
