Toronto rapper Drake is one of the city’s most beloved residents. In a teaser for an upcoming interview with Lil Yachty, he suggests that he’s considering retiring from music.
The rapper dropped a pair of projects last year, including Honestly, Nevermind and Her Loss with 21 Savage. If he really is retiring, it will mark the end of an illustrious career.
Interview with Lil Yachty
In an interview teaser released by Lil Yachty, rapper Drake revealed that he’s thinking of a “graceful exit” from the rap game. Despite speculation, the Toronto-based artist has yet to confirm or deny his comments.
As a kid, Drake had a passion for acting and singing. He was spotted by an acting agent who helped him land a role on Degrassi: The Next Generation.
The long-running Canadian teen drama, which started in 2001 and ended in 2009, quickly developed a devoted fanbase that helped Drake build his career. He earned a Young Artist Award in 2002 for his role as Jimmy Brooks, a disabled basketball player who was shot by a classmate.
Drake has since gone on to become one of the biggest stars in the world, with numerous awards and lucrative deals. He also owns a record label, clothing line and radio station. He is an ambassador for the NBA’s Toronto Raptors. But he’s not without controversies.
Interview with Nicki Minaj
The “Super Freaky Girl” hitmaker sat down for an interview with Jada Pinkett Smith in the fall 2022 issue of Interview magazine. During the chat, she spoke about motherhood, her upcoming album, the state of the rap game and more.
Minaj also expressed her dissatisfaction with the way women and black people are treated in the fashion industry. She cites the way fashion bloggers and influencers marginalize female rappers as one of her major concerns.
She added that she wishes female rappers were more original. She believes that a lot of them sound similar to one another, and she feels like they’re not representing themselves in their best light.
Nicki Minaj also opened up about her upcoming album, and revealed that she’s ready to start recording. She’s working on her fifth studio project, and it should be released in the next few months.
Interview with Lil Wayne
The rapper teased his new interview with Eminem on Young Money Radio today. The two sounded super engaged with each other, and it’s always nice to hear artists speak more freely.
Drake also spoke about his latest project, Funeral, which is set to release on January 31st. The Toronto native is a known aficionado of the ’90s, and he’s been on a roll since the release of his debut album, Take Care, in 2009.
While Drake’s career seems to be on the upswing, he has had his fair share of problems. For instance, he’s been involved in a beef with Pusha T, and a brawl between him and Chris Brown caused injuries to several people. Despite these issues, Drake still remains one of the most popular rappers in the game. He also has his own label, OVO Sound.
Interview with Kanye West
Despite the fact that he’s been on TV and in the media a lot recently, it’s still a bit hard to believe that drake is ready to call it quits. After all, he’s got a huge following and he’s been a household name for years.
However, he’s also made a lot of controversial comments, and on Monday night, he went on a long interview with The Tucker Carlson Show and ended up making several claims that are untrue. One claim he made, which didn’t air on the show, was that his children were “kidnapped” on their birthdays so that he couldn’t see them.
During the interview, West was flanked by alt-right commentator Milo Yiannopoulos and white nationalist Nick Fuentes, both of whom have used their platforms to promote antisemitic views and Holocaust denial. After he was challenged by Pool, West walked out of the interview and threatened to stop the conversation.
