Drake Covers Fader; Talks Meek Mill Beef & Ghostwriting Allegations

For the second time in his career, Drake covers Fader magazine. Not only is it the 100th issue but it’s an even more special occasion because we don’t get interviews from him at all nowadays.

He covers all the hot topics from his battle with Meek Mill to the reference tracks that were leaked by Funkmaster Flex. There are some excerpts below but be sure to read the full story here and check out the photoshoot clip below.

Drake on ghostwriting allegations:
“It’s just channeling my mom. Like, I’d bring home an essay that I did really well on, and my mom would read it through and give me notes back—on the essay that I just scored like 94 on! So sometimes I just do that. I’ll hear people’s stuff and… I’ll just give my interpretation of how I would have done it…It’s just, literally, I’ve recognized the potential and the greatness in this piece, and I want to take my stab at it too.”

On his famous co-signs:
“It’s just channeling my mom. Like, I’d bring home an essay that I did really well on, and my mom would read it through and give me notes back—on the essay that I just scored like 94 on! So sometimes I just do that. I’ll hear people’s stuff and… I’ll just give my interpretation of how I would have done it…It’s just, literally, I’ve recognized the potential and the greatness in this piece, and I want to take my stab at it too.”

On his surprise clash with Meek Mill:
“This is a discussion about music, and no one’s putting forth any music?… Nobody told you that this was a bad idea, to engage in this and not have something?…It was weighing heavy on me. I didn’t get it. I didn’t get how there was no strategy on the opposite end. I just didn’t understand. I didn’t understand it because that’s just not how we operate.”

On vulnerability and toughness:
“Not being vulnerable is never gonna be my thing. I’m always going to share with you what’s going on in my life…Vulnerability, to me, sometimes comes in the form of being naïve about where I am in the pecking order of all this. So I think I realize where I’m at now. And I think I realize that I’m gonna have to be OK with not having that many friends that are peers.”

Future on Drake:
“Drake is my brother. We have a cool personal relationship, but we have an even better relationship musically.”
