Drake sat down with Elliot Wilson on Sunday, September 22, at New York University for the latest installment of Wilson's #CRWN series.
Drizzy opened up about Aaliyah, Beyonce, Degrassi, Twitter, his mom, the Wu Tang Clan and his writing style.
He revealed that he's been writing material for Beyonce's upcoming album, that "Pound Cake" came from a studio session with Mrs Carter and spoke on his overall respect for the singer.
"Beyonce is the voice of all females in life."
On the rapper's Nothing Was the Same album he has a song called "Wu Tang Forever." Some fans were disappointed that no members of the Wu were on it, but he has recorded with them so hopefully we will hear that collaborations soon.
The October's Very Own CEO was supposed to produce a posthumous Aaliyah album. Aside from "Enough Said," we haven't heard anymore from the project. However, Drake assured there were records in the stash. The only question is, will we ever hear them?
"There are records that exist with me and Aaliyah that no one has heard."
On his Degrassi roots and love of sweaters:
“Yeah, I was on Degrassi, yeah, I wear sweaters, yeah, I wore Dada, and no, I don’t give a f*ck.”
On criticism that too many of his songs are emo:
“People may say about me, ‘Oh man, everything’s so emotional,’ but if I didn’t write about that, what the f*ck else would I write about?”
“That’s a terrible medium to exist in. You can indulge in it, but don’t live your life by that code.”
On his mother:
“She’s 66, that scares me, man. I’m 26-years-old. Life is not guaranteed, and does not last forever.”
