Drake Nabs GQ's Style Issue Cover: Talks Relationship With His Dad, Dealing With Fame & His Sex Life [Pics/Video]


Video After The Jump


By all accounts Drake has made it. Whether you like his music or not it's hard not to respect his climb from child actor to rap superstar. GQ's Claire Hoffman caught up with Drizzy for the April issue of the magazine to talk about his life and rise to the top.


On His relationship with his father:

Me and my dad are friends. We're cool. I'll never be disappointed again, because I don't expect anything anymore from him. I just let him exist, and that's how we get along. We laugh. We have drinks together. But I spent too many nights looking by the window, seeing if the car was going to pull up. And the car never came.

On today's rap game:

Rap now is just being young and fly and having your sh*t together. The mood of rap has changed. Some of my favorite rappers, some of my heroes — DJ Screw, Aaliyah— there might be like 200 pictures of them because there was no Internet. Whereas with us, it's like every moment is documented.

On adjusting to fame in his personal life:

I’m trying to find the same feelings that I had for women when I had very little going on, which is tough. When I was in my mom’s house, I had nowhere to go, no real obligations. My girlfriend at the time, if she was mad at me, my day was all f*cked-up. I didn’t have anything else. And that made for some of the best music, I think, to date. Records where I felt small. That feeling is hard to capture when you’re sitting out here in a space like this. It’s really difficult for me to find something that makes me feel small.


On his sex life:

There’s just a time where it was like, just getting p*ssy. Where I was in that sort of ‘I’m young, I’m going to disconnect from my emotions and just do what everyone else tells me I should do and just be a rapper and have my fun.’ And for me as a person, it just doesn’t work. I just need something else. The seconds after a man reaches climax, that’s like the realest moment of your life. If I don’t want you next to me in that fifteen, twenty seconds, then there’s something wrong.

He's such a cocky f***, and if you dont believe me, quote: "i find it really hard to find things that make me feel small"..really? he cant find, or think of a single thing that he doesnt feel he can do better than? ...but not only that, he pretty much ruined hip hop with his music too. Because now other artists can see just how little the have to try to get they song in the club...
