Drake Talks Having Nicki Minaj On "Make Me Proud"

Drizzy details the meaning behind a track off of the upcoming "Take Care."

As the date for Drake's sophomore set Take Care draws nearer, the Toronto emcee has taken stock of what one of the album's songs means to him.

In particular, Drake recently spoke to MTV News about "Make Me Proud," and what it means to have fellow Young Money artist Nicki Minaj on it.

"Whenever I make songs surrounding women, I always try to find refreshing stances to take as opposed to just like, 'Oh, you're sexy' or 'Oh, I want you,'" said Drizzy. "The song, it really came up in passing conversation, just being like, "I'm proud of you."

"Not even necessarily that a woman has to go achieve grandiose things to be proud; it's just that I'm proud of you for trying," he explained. "It's hard to be a woman out here these days, especially to be pretty and especially to be smart and want something for yourself. So I'm just proud of you whether it's Nicki or any girl that I've ever known in my life that's doing well for herself."

    I hope Pusha is serious about dissin this asshole. Someone needs to come at this little bitch, and knock this punk ass, fake ass, Canadian scum bag piece of shit on the ground. Fuckin milado Justin Beiber...

      What reason would Pusha T have to go at Drake? That seems pretty strange to me when Cons went at Pusha T HARD and all he did was bitch up and hide. But now he wants to diss Drake when there was someone willing and waiting to destroy his garbage ass.

      @SK you just a sick dog, no one is hating, obviously you can't take the truth about this clown. The fact is he is trying to build buzz because he's not hot like he was last year so out of desperation he went for Nicki. Nothing special here stop being a dickrider

    • Sk

      Or maybe he's getting her on the album because they're part of the same camp and they're tight? I'm sick of people hating on drake for no reason, the guys got skills even if he isn't a thug or fake gangster like 50 cent or rick ross or any of the hundreds of fake gangsters.
