Drake has snagged a huge solo cover of XXL which is celebrating it’s 150th issue and 16th anniversary. Drake conducted a two hour interview for the issue where he talks about everything from his career to relationships to Amanda Bynes. Drizzy is gearing up for the September 17th release of his upcoming album Nothing Was The Same- check out footage from his OVO Festival here and listen to his newest single Hold On We’re Going Home here. During the interview he made the following comments about the album:
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.”
