Drake Talks Criticism, Advice From Floyd Mayweather

Drake talks to MTV's Sway about how boxer Floyd Mayweather taught him to deal with criticism.

Whether it's disgruntled Hip Hop purists, Ghostface-impersonating bloggers or just Pusha T, it seems like a lot of people love to hate Drake. Now, in a recent interview with Sway of MTV, the YMCMB star responds to critics.

Drake explains that it was actually Floyd Mayweather who taught him that whether he's being booed by a crowd or insulted on Twitter, it's sign that he's still relevant in music. He added that he's confident in his music and proud of all of his career decisions, regardless of what anyone says.

"There will be days when I walk in an arena and people will cheer and then there might be days when I walk in an arena and people might boo, but it all sounds the same to me because it's all just noise that lets me know that I'm relevant," he said. "I don't get booed. I don't face that. I mean [Mayweather] faces that challenge but my challenge is more with social media and open opinions and people just feeling like they need to talk."

He added, "It's important for me to let my fans know I really don't care. I'm confident. I love the music I make and the videos I make and the people I associate with and every decision I've ever made."

    Drake Can actually Rap while Its Proven that the Man is Talented now as far as His sexual orientation i have no interest in that and its funny because thats all you niggaz seem to focus on....Moving Right along...Now He's not a Dummy he's also proven that in his music im sure he can handle the feedback from the ppl if i were him i would be either in the studio,or working on my next investment wether u like his music or not Im sure u can agree with that Be sure to Follow @yellowkidd85 via twitter for the lastest in music/fashion/news/networking http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SbDZz0We-dA

    Relevancy doesn't mean or make an artist good.

    Don't listen to Mayweather. He's afraid to fight Pac Man. Point being, right now nobody is booeing Drake, but there will come a time where that will happen, and yes, it will bother him.

Drake - one day when you learn a little something - you idiot - you could learn how to be just like me - making that minimum wage paper, driving my honda civic, dating around-the-way girls with 2+ kids, and spending my spare-time commenting on losers I am much more successful than...Let me tell you how I did it: I please everybody. Thats how I became employee of the month...I listen to Pusha T man...I mean, he's my manager and I work the fries, mop the floors...This is how its done...We making that paper..We are very relevant, trust me..

    Ok. I admit it. The reason I am obsessed with Drake and homos is because I am gay. You have no idea how hard this is for me to admit. I just hope drake is gay also.

  • YESSIR

    The truth is deep-down I am a huge Drake fan. I just can't stand it man. why he gotta rule the game? I'm still living with my moms. He's got all the dough, dope rhymes and all the bitches. Damn...I can't take it anymore. Everytime I see his name on the Internet, Im just gonna go blogging crazy on this dude. Because I wanna represent for all the real hip hop dudes -hard and shit- even though sometimes I act like a nerd on the internet. It's cool man because even when Im blogging hard shit, I'm wearing a hoody and shooting muthafuckas.. He just more girls cause he is corny...yeah..Drake is soft ....and fuck the haterz, I ain't no Internet geek loser...
