Drake Compares "Take Care" To Upcoming Third Album

Drake talks about how "Take Care" reflects his move back to Toronto and how his third project will differ.

Drake recently chopped it up with Billboard to discuss the next leg of his widely successful Club Paradise Tour, which will feature the likes of J. Cole, Waka Focka Flame, Meek Mill, 2 Chainz and French Montana. During the interview, the YMCMB rapper talked about the creation of his sophomore album Take Care.

Drizzy said that he feels that Take Care reflects a lot of the personal turmoil he endured moving back to his native Toronto after he broke through on the US charts. Despite this shift in setting, he said that he's in a entirely different mindset musically and that his next album is going to push all conceptual boundaries.

"I think my mood will be reflected in the tempos I choose for the music," he explained. "A lot of Take Care, it's down...and I think a lot of it had to do with being back in Toronto, getting reacquainted with the life I had before [fame] and difficulties with that, and at the same time trying to express excitement, express joy...I still live in Toronto and love the city," he said, "but there's just so much going on for me in the U.S. I recently made the move to L.A. There's a new atmosphere. I'm getting to know new people...anybody knows that when it's new, that's when I thrive. When there's new things to talk about that's really when I get off."

He added, "Now I'm in a very, very, very, very different place than I've ever been, really focused on myself, really focused on my health, my body, my mind, really wanting to be the best I can possibly be...I'm in a different mindset now that I'm very proud of...it's going to be a very interesting album - probably, to be honest with you, conceptually one of the most exciting projects I've worked on, just 'cause there's so many new things going on in my life."

    'I'm in a very different mindset now' A.K.A. 'On this next album I'm gonna rap about money and hoes'

    living your dreams boi.. good for you. Drake is nice.. but so are many others... He had an opportunity and ran with it... Without that (cash money backing, payola, label money.. e.t.c) he'd be hating on these blogs too...

  • FuKKK DraKKKe

    I really don't like this little nigga. His sucess irks me so much everytime I think about it I puke. I just can't understand how can a kid look up to this faggot and actually want to be like him.

    • T

      Hell yeah, im sick and tired of hearing this gay azz nigga. I can't believe he's making another album. STOP MAKING MUSIC MF!

    • Alf Capone

      cuz constant radio spins, mtv, magazine covers, and websites like this one tell them he is the one to look up to and be like

  • Kap Diva

    Drake doesn't try to be anything that he is not. He shows his true emotion and his flow is flawless. People always go against what they really want to be.

    • @Kap Diva

      But he does that by making such a wack ass music. I doubt you'll find an adult who can actually hear more than 10 seconds of this nigga's music.

  • This nigga man

    Drake throwin up the tripple six's over his eye huh? Its crazy how this devil worshiping shit is right in our face and we just ignore it and accept it... And to anybody whos gonna say some shit like, "your a conspiracy theorist blah blah blah" ma nigga answer this question. What is he doin in this pic and why do u see other entertainers doin the same thing?? It aint a gang sign, drake AINT no blood. So what is he doin?? Can somebody give me a logical explanation??....

      Never mind about the things you cannot change and focus on you and the things you can do to make a difference. Its pointless worrying about and discussing trivial matters.

    Drake Compares "Take Care OF FAGGOTS" To Upcoming Third Album: Taking Care Of More faggots

  • Anonymous

    Commenters on this site are pathetic, all you do is complain about Drake, Rick Ross, Wayne etc. and how they aren't good Hip Hop artists but when there is good hip hop posted on here no one ever listens to it or comments on it and they sure as hell don't buy any of it, Hip Hop ain't dead, the fans are just awful.

    • Anonymous

      Not all hip hop fans are like that but there are the minority that are the most fickle, unloyal, bitch talking, gossip mongering, nit picking, spoilt brats that I've ever come across. I can't speak too much on other genres but you find this constant stream of negativity, gossip, slandering, lack of respect and crude jokes against artists on most hip hop sites which is nothing short of abusive and really a form of bullying.

      Very good point.

  • Anonymous

    People are so insecured nowadays that being soft is immediately associated with negative. In a genre where artist are obliged to be as hard as steal (which i think is just bull-ish), Drake appeals more to people who take vulnerability not as a sign of weakness but as a manefestation of our humanity. How can you be a gangsta all the time?

    • anon

      nobody would have a problem with dude if he just stayed in that soft lane. Instead you've got him trying to battle people, throwing shots at other rappers, sayin he tucks his napkin cause he mobs like that and how he's gonna put out hits on niggas who disrespect him. Ain't nobody take dude seriously when he does somethin like that, stay in your lane drake.

    • Anonymous

      I actually would prefer him to be like that more often....it's when he pretends to be gangsta that makes me cringe.

  • Mr Flamboyant

    As much as I can't stand this dude and his wackness...I respect his statement on this one. The hardest place to be once you've ascended to a newer level is home...depending on where home is. There's nothing quite like something new and getting a fresh start and the reinvigoration of being restored with a new mind and a new focus. It's something that everyone strives towards achieving...or at least they should. With that said, we'll probably hear some more of the same bullshit that he's been speaking on both of these lame ass LPs so far. I recall he was gonna make this Take Care joint more hip hop and soulful and we see how that shit turned to be. YMCMB is the absolute worst as a record label. Sell yourself short to sell records.

    • Anonymous

      that depends on what you define as good music.

    • Black KiiNG

      Sir or Madame, Cash Money Records has been selling good music for 20 years despite the hate you send out. You are nothing but an example of a "dream thief", who can't stop nothing with your lies. You should be ashamed of yourself.
