Drake is featured on the latest cover of Jet magazine, December issue. This issue is set to hit stands November 28th. Drizzy chats about a couple of topics including why people respect him as a rapper, Take Care, and much more. We got some quick excerpts below.
On ‘Take Care’ and what it means to him:
“There are moments I have where I’m by myself, and it’s very reflective,” he says. “I have a desire to come back and do some more aggressive music, because I truly enjoy those anthems and those moments as well. But I think this album is a great balance.”
On making his third album:
“I think I’m very hard on myself. I don’t really give myself too much time to be happy or celebrate. Like this album, I’m very proud of it. People are giving me great feedback, but at the same time, I’m sitting on my bus already listening to new beats. I’m trying to figure out what I could do better or what my next move is. I’m obsessed with getting better.”
On being respected:
“I think that it’s evident that I’m myself, and I think people respect me for that across the board, he says. I get respect from the guys who are respected for being real rapper’s rappers. I get respect from women. I get respect from mothers, fathers and kids. It’s very humbling and flattering and incredible, and I’m honored to be in this position because I get to be myself. And I get a lot of love for it.”
