Hip-hop heavyweight Drake nabs the cover of Billboard magazine’s September issue. The Canadian native is all smiles, perhaps due to the fact that his monumental success in the rap game is showing no signs of slowing down.
“I’m 26,” he tells the mag, “I don’t know what else I could be doing better than this. I feel incredible.” We must say that incredible is an understatement to describe all he’s accomplished, not limited to him selling 4.5 million albums in less than 4 years, a Grammy under his belt and making his mark on pop culture. Between the pages, Drake shares what kind of rapper he aims to be and what kind of impact he wants to make on his generation. He also dishes on how he deals with the naysayers, including what he thinks about Kendrick Lamar calling him out on Big Sean’s “Control.”
Though Drizzy is already cheesing over how far he’s come, we’re sure the grins won’t end with the release of his highly-anticipated third major-label album, Nothing Was the Same, which drops September 24. Read the full interview by picking up an issue of Billboard.
