In his rhymes, Drake often addresses the less-glamorous side of fame.
In a recent interview with The Guardian, Drizzy explicitly admitted to using drugs to handle fame.
“Have I sipped codeine before?” asked the Toronto native rhetorically. “Yeah, of course. Have I smoked weed? Yes. Do I drink wine? Yes.”
Drake quickly added a caveat, lest he portray himself to be an avid drug user. “But do I do it excessively? No. I’m not a reckless guy. I do it all within moderation.”
“I’m not into drugs,” he said, before laughing and adding, “I mean any outside the ones I just mentioned.”
“Nah, that’s not me,” he added after composing himself. “I care too much about what I have. I’m not going to throw it away for that.”
