The new face of hip-hop, Drake, is anywhere and everywhere these days. Most recently the rapper was featured in the cover story of Paper Magazine, written by none other than GlobalGrind’s own Jozen Cummings.
The Toronto-born star covers everything from his days as an awkard teen actor on Degrassi to the release of his first offical album, Thank Me Later throughout the article.
On his rise to fame: ‘Degrassi was some wild times,’ says Drake, ‘but things have gotten to the point where I can create my own pandemonium… it’s a little more exciting now because it’s like beautiful, grown women. Women I’d actually want to date.’
On his female fans’ attraction to him: ‘I don’t take my shirt off, I don’t pride myself on the physical conditioning aspect of it,’ Drake says. ‘But I get on stage and I start singing the words to a song, and they do throw bras and panties. They do cry and faint, and I truly believe it has a lot do with my music.’
