Drake Is "80 Percent Done" With "Take Care," Talks Recording In Toronto, Canada

Drizzy explains why being in his native city helped him feel more comfortable with his music.

Drake is currently gearing up for the release of his sophomore album Take Care, which he claims is “80 percent done.” Speaking with Hip Hollywood, Drizzy explained that he’s the “most confident I’ve ever been” with the album, which benefitted from him recording in his native Toronto, Canada.

“I’ve been in Toronto the longest time since I started my career, I’ve been there for four months. The album is a genuine reflection of my life past and my life present, and I have a line on the album where I say, ‘I feel like I was numb to it last year, but I think I feel it now more than ever,’” he said. “That’s the best way I can paint the picture for you for this album. I got to reconnect with a lot of people I haven’t seen in years, I got to see my family a lot, it stirred up a lot of emotions that I probably wouldn’t have had if I’d been on the road traveling everywhere. It’s almost there. I got some great things, I’m very excited. I’m most confident I’ve ever been, including So Far Gone, including any mixtape.”

Take Care is due in stores on October 24th.

"I did so much on his record, I did six records," 50, who is featured on The Documentary's "Hate It or Love It," "Westside Story" and "How We Do," scoffed. "To take the time and energy from what I'm doing on my record and create his record, then have him go off at his mouth like that and be disrespectful ... "Game had actually been on AftermatH for TWO YEARS before they gave me the opportunity to do the project with Dre," 50 told MTV in January. "I think creatively they were stuck a little, but then when I was brought in we were able to add new energy. They got excited about the project, brought him out, we recorded like nine records at the house in Farmington, [Connecticut]. He went back to Los Angeles with the records, Dre liked them, and I just got him re-motivated and he went in and finished up the album."The Game and 50's marriage was never a natural union to begin with. Game was originally signed solely to Dr. Dre's Aftermath imprint, working on his album for a couple of years before Interscope Chairman Jimmy Iovine proposed bringing Game into the G-Unit fold. Iovine talked to Dre, who called in 50. GAME IS A TRUE STUDIO GANGSTA

    so the fuck what that hes jewish? All that means is hes decended from people that have been through more bullshit throughout history than blacks. Blacks faced 300 to 400 years of shit. Jews faced thousands. All throughout history. Not saying hes faced any of the same things but damn. Even though hes not american, he lives here. And in america, even being half black makes you a nigga. grow the hell up. fuckin crab

      @anonymus I know hip hop originated in the ghetto but that dont mean it has to stay there. For all you purists that think it should be restricted to ghetto ppl only: -Beastie Boys -Andre 3000 -Kanye West -Rakim all these guys grew up in middle/upper mid class america,look it up if yu dont believe me. HOW THE FUK yu gon tell me that Rakim never should have picked up a mic

      You obviously dont know the history of hip hop jason. Hip hop didn't start in Beverly hills. It's a modern day form of blues music that a lot of silver spoon babies have decided to rape these days.

    • Fuck Jason

      Shut up Jason. Canada is gay.

    • Jason Pennells

      WHO GIVES A FUCK WHAT HE IS???? Why do people think yu need to be in a position of suffering to rap? Drake isn't rappin about the ghetto life he rappin about clubs drinkin, women , fast life etc.

      Your point would make sense if the Jews didn't own/control everything.

      lol nah im actually christian. I just know how to look at things from a different perspective. We blacks wanna get all angry whenever we get the feeling that something didnt go our way because someone judged us by our skin instead of the job we do, but then here we have people dissing drake cus hes jewish. hypocritical aint it? it would be different if people diss him because they dont like his music. Thats fine. You dont have to like his music. Its not for everybody. But not liking him because of the religion his mother passed on to him is like someone not liking you because of the skin color your parents passed on to you.
