Drake opens up in a rare interview which documents his early life, career, and journey in the first episode of the video documentary series produced by The FADER, to support Sprite’s Obey Your Thirst collection.
“Do it the way I did it” – Drake
Drake tackles different aspects of his career, internet culture, competition, emerging from an underdog city, and more in this inspirational interview any Drake, and/or Hip-hop fan in general will appreciate. Drake reflects on people telling him to move to New York to pursue his dreams, though with his talent and dedication in place he made history by proving that a multi-layered and talented artist doesn’t need a specific location to make it, if you have the music, you’ll make it.
“I’m not worried about these other rappers. I’m not competing with those guys. I already know their hand, I know their move — I study everything. I’m worried about the kid that’s sitting in his house who wants to be better than me and all those other guys. That’s who I’m worried about. – Drake
