Drake spoke with Sway from MTV News about the criticism he gets from time to time. Drake goes on to tell us what Floyd Mayweather once told him about dealing with criticism. Find out all that and more in the video clip below.
”There will be days when I walk in an arena and people will cheer and then there might be days when I walk in an arena and people might boo, but it all sounds the same to me because it’s all just noise that lets me know that I’m relevant. I don’t get booed. I don’t face that. I mean he faces that challenge but my challenge is more with social media and open opinions and people just feeling like they need to talk. It’s important for me to let my fans know I really don’t care. I’m confident. I love the music I make and the videos I make and the people I associate with and every decision I’ve ever made. Just to let [fans] know that I don’t care about anything else outside of this right here (referencing the army of fans waiting for him to perform). That other stuff, hiding behind computers and yip-yapping all day on radio stations, it’s like that’s cool, man, for points and popularity, but at the end of the day, there is still 15,000 people here.”
