Drake Says He Won't Be Boxed In With His Third Album, Wants To Bring People Together

Drake hopes his music will bring people together, says his sound can't be duplicated.

Canadian artist Drake has made quite the impression as a music artist who can easily maneuver his way between both rapping and singing on tracks. And during his interview with MTV News, Drake spoke on his ability to do both, gave his thoughts on rappers being forced to be in one box musically, and revealed that he makes music that can’t be duplicated.

“The music that I make is bigger than the box that people try to put us all in as rappers,” Drake explained. “And people always try and draw me back to that like ‘Nah just rap.’ Nah, I’m good. I like what I do. No one can do what I do period. That’s how I feel. Nobody can really do what I do, what we do. Including 40 and all the producers that I work with.”

While speaking on his third studio album Drake boldly stated that he hopes to make music that will bring people together.

“[There's] nothing necessarily for me to step up and say I want to fight for, but there is a way for me to give moments to the world, and to bear my emotions and hope that I'm remembered as that guy who was able to bring people together. I want to be that guy. I want to bring people together," said Drake, according to MTV News.

Aside from Drake’s third solo album being influenced by recent happenings in his life, no other details have been revealed.

  • Patrick Swayze

    NOBODY PUTS BABY IN A BOX!

  • WhatYouTalkingBoutWillis?

    Its funny how he says the fans are trying to put him and other rappers in a box. The reason your in a box is because of the record label your signed too, not the fans. Don't blame us for the box that has been created by the music industry. This guy doesn't even realize that he's a puppet.

    • its simple

      Eh, hes talking about everyone who's talking shit about his sing/rap style i.e. the general hiphop listening public, not his lable, dumbass. if his lable was holding him back from the music he wanted to do, his last cd wouldn't have came out, not that im defending him or liked it. but whatever. your dumbass probably believes in the illuminati too.

  • anon

    drake said his last album was gonna be more rapping less singing, I'm pretty sure he rapped on like two records. the rest was sing songy bullshit about saving strippers. Like he literally dedicated an entire track to saving a stripper, (the real her), and then tried to act like some jewish mobster saying he was putting hits out on people and mobbin like that. Nobody believes you over there, there ain't anybody on young money who can rap but you, but you still making these soft ass rnb joints about saving hoes. Thats why your ass didn't get a grammy and probably never will cause you just don't see what you're doing.

    can't be duplicated because no one on earth is so GAY

    "Was Vanilla Ice talented?" At the time... Yeah. Talent isn't just about being lyrically superior, or how deep you can get on a song. Back then, people accepted Ice and Hammer. They just overexposed themselves and became punchlines. Doesn't mean they didn't have talent.

  • JustSaying

    Why Everyone In Hip-Hop/Rap Has To Be Compared To Someone Else? When In Fact Everyone Has Their Own Style/Sound. I Mean If You Dont Like SomeOne, Dont Listen/Comment On Them. Its Simple. You Make Negative Comments Make You A Hater Right? Everyone Listens To Music According To Their Own Personal Beliefs/Life Experiences/Etc. So if you cant relate to the guy. Shut up. He'll continue to make his music. & you'll always be that online critic no one cares about. #JustSaying

    WOWWW!!!! I'm sick and tired of all you fucking HATERS. Talking bout all that listens to him is 14 yr old girls and shit. I'm 28 yrs old, I aint no thug/gangster mafucka and I aint no lame. I hang with lames, and I hang with Thug ass gangsta mafuckas feel me. GIVE CREDIT WHEN ITS DUE. Just because you don't like or listen to him don't mean he's weak. He got mad talent obviously or he wouldn't sell like he sells... Shows, Albums....All I see on this shit is HATE, get your money up...fame up....bitches up, get your fucking life up a lil notch before you TRY to hate on somebody. You ain't doing no better. Everybody has they own opinion, but NOBODY can deny the talent that somebody has, and that is a fact. Go ahead and say i'm on his dick now, and blah blah fucking BLAH! Just stating some real shit...

    • chaboi614

      1st off OC, ain't nobody getting offended i'm just talking my lil shit haa....BUT...on to the next 1...Mr.Anonymous...how the fuck am I acting like i am part of his life? Let me know which sentence please. Like I said, i'm just stating facts...I ain't ever say OH MY GOD he's the fucking best....I love him....Nobody's better....I'm just saying nobody can deny the talent period......3rd...DANIEL...Haaa...Listen lil Danny...If I have to reassure people i'm not lame..i'm lame...That sentence was just fucking lame. BUT..I feel you on the right place at the right time shit but that's Young Money anyway, they are everywhere so they gotta be doing something right. But your whole damn paragraph is my point all the way HATE HATE HATE..but it's all opinion....And last on the hate list.....1st of all I don't go to clubs and dance, I sit at the bar and buy shots for "Real Niggas" something you might not know nothing about, and I ain't no internet thug i'm just telling it like it is.

    • hahahahaha sensitive ass bitches

      go to club and dance with your rejected ass personalities...thats why u trick ass hoes like drake...i aint mad at him for eatin pussy for money but i hate dick ryders,and u iz a dick ryders.mark

    • Daniel

      Yea man... your a lame brah... If you have to reassure people that your not lame... your lame... ok on to the point. I fucking hate Drake... I hate his music I hate what he tries to portray... I hate everything about him. I dont think he is a good rapper cause he doesnt rap... I dont think he is a good singer ither. He is just at the right place and the right time for idiots to listen to his music. There are plenty of MCees out there that can actually rap, and actually sing, and it isnt on some pop teen club bullshit. This dude is softer than a pillow monster made out of memory foam

      You ridin that boys dick like you actually a part of his life tho...

    • OC

      Oh, he's crazy talented. But he sells records and shows, because little girls are buying his shit. So you shouldn't get offended by anyone saying that, because it's a fact. Little ass girls love Drake

    • @ DK

      You can't read. Who said he has no talent? First sentence " Not saying he is or isn't talented". I'm no fan of his music though. I don't think it's intended for me. I feel like maybe if I was about 10 years younger I might like it. I doubt it though. I'm not one of those people who wish bad things for him though. If he is successful it doesn't affect me at all.

    • DK

      You have to be mentally deranged to think Darke has no talent at all.Drake is no Nas but he is dope

    • Anonymous

      Not saying he is or isn't talented but sales don't always equal talent. Was Vanilla Ice talented? That is just one example among the hundreds who have sold a ton of records and had no musical talent. In other words your point is moot.

  • Miles

    Oh No! Drake is talking about making new music. they haters are about to come....

  • dentaldamboy

    The only reason most people purchased blueprint 3 was becuase of the Drake feature. Jay-Z made a big mistake by going at Baby. We are a family at YMCMB. Jay-z will no longer be able to work with MMG or YMCMB. Jay will try to put out one more CD and it won't debut number one.

    • chaboi614

      HAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dumbest comment of the whole damn year!!!! On some real shit, I ain't even know Drake was gon be on his album.

    • @dentaldamboy

      You Are A Retard.

    • Ja'Quarn

      The comment you just made is a epic fail because Meek Mill and Wale are managed under Jay-Z company Roc Nation so basically everyting those two do Jay-z is invoved and plus Rick Ross new abulm will have a feature from.. who? The BIGGEST BOSS IN THE RAP GAME JAY-Z .. so MMG work with Jay on a daily basis #ROC

    • bant

      but isnt Jay confirmed for Rick Ross new album?

  • RSX

    LOL @ the haters below me. Rap is in a real shit box right now with Future, 2Chainz & Travis Porter even having the ability to be mainstream artists right now. Drake is the only one [in the mainstream] doing anything to keep the culture respectable right now. Don't get me started on Chief Keef either.

  • 123

    yeah he's SOOOO fucking humble... fuck outta here birdman ask nas in an interview if he thinks hes the best... nas will say "there is no best" even though he knows hes number 1. man im getting REAL ashamed of Toronto and shit. the radio stations here are drake 24/7 with little girls calling up to request all days everyday. PS drake your producers makes beats with no drums no kick no snare.. i hate this dude lol

    • BlazeDatIshUp

      I feel ya. I've never liked this kid. He's not that great a rapper and he can not sing, so I wish he would stop thinking he can. They play his crap too much here in TDot. I actually prefer the Toronto rappers Infinite and K-OS. K-OS has been doing the rapping/singer thing long before this clown, so I wish he'd stop thinking he's doing something that no one else does. No one from that label(s)/crew is humble. They all have their heads firmly shoved up their own asses, cuz they believe in their own hype and think they are better than they actually are.

    • Anonymous

      I don't know about all of that but I agree with the producers part lol. What they do is not difficult. 40 just makes ambient sounding beats. The kinds that come with Fruity Loops, STOCK. So Drake shouldn't act like thats epic or something. I do appreciate Drake having his own style. Thats more than 95% of rappers. But don't act like no one else can do it. It's not like you are Chris Brown when you sing, and Jay-Z when you rap. Drake raps good. The "singing" is just talking with melody. You've never heard Drake actually hold a note for more than second.

  • nickrazor2000

    This garbage fuckin canadian is crazy! His stupid ass thinks hes the beatles or some shit talking about bringin people together with his music. The only people he is bringing together are 14 year old little girls and complete idiots.

    Please please please (to the god that I don't believe in) Phonte DO NOT get on this dudes album. I know he loves you, and has a bigger fanbase but....don't do it.

    Fame will ultimately derail Drake. Right now he's got the sales to back him up, but it seems every week somebody new is stepping to him. Enjoy the ride cause it will be a bumpy one.
