"He’s like a writer, collaborator on four songs on my album which I’m very proud of,” he told MTV News. “I usually don’t branch out writing-wise working with other people. I usually like to write all my own stuff, but we get it. We try to tap into the same emotions because we’re from the same city.”

He also spoke on The Weeknd's current label situation, explaining that the vocalist is tied to his hometown and hasn't really branched out just yet.

    He never said shit about him "appearing" on tracks. He said "writer/collaborator". Doesn't mean it's not true but god damn. Get your shit straight Hip Hop DX, you fuckers have been pissing me off.

    drake is cool but he is putting himself in a corner....he needs to stop talking about women all the damn time!!!i know how powerful pussy can be but try to talk about your life or make concept records...lol....geeeeeeezzzz...lol....

      I hear what you saying and I agree with everything you said for the most part as far as having more content, and subject matter to his overall sound. But a lot of those records about life and certain concept records are played. I think Drake is sticking to what works for him as well as showcasing his rap skills a lil more on this album. He's saying The Weekend got 4 features on the album so I would assume since dude is a R&B singer he's gonna be doing the choruses for the songs which means we gonna hear Drake rhyme a lil more which is a good look for him. I think he knows he gets a lot of criticism for all the singing he does on hooks which IMO he does well and is going to continue to do but for this album I think we can look forward to more rapping from him.

    I've been following Drake's career ever since he starred in the last Star Trek movie as Spock. It seems like this guy can't do anything but win. Congrats on all your success Drake! I'm so proud of you!

    • Swordz

      Haha! That's some funny shit. @wow... bro... it's a joke chill.

    • wow

      so you just tried being clever by calling Drake gay, because Spock's actor is gay, crazy original. Hilarious, but you'll never make it with a name like that, you should probably just kill yourself.

  • smh

    man this is just another lupe fiasco he's got the skills and the flow but he chooses shitty r&b beats. why drake? fucking why?

    • t

      lupe is far more skilled than drake but what he means is they both have talent and skills to jump on better sounding tracks than they do which is true is some cases drake could sometimes choose better beats and collabs as well as lupe

    • Anonymous

  • thought dog

    Why does Drakes face move so weird?

  • HipHopFan

    Yawn. That means his album is going to be RnB album of the year. Since he already leaked 3 RnB joints and confirmed 4 other tracks with The Weeknd we can assume its all slow tracks. Drake is getting real lame
