Drake for GQ Magazine July Issue


     So my favorite rapper/singer is being the a little stud muffin on the cover for GQ magazine's July issue.  Summer 2013 will defiantly be they summer of Drake (like if we are not all singing along with him on the radio right now) with his third album coming out in August (Nothing Was The Same) and tour to follow (with Miguel and Future joining the tour).  In the issue he talks about love, sex, and rap.

On SexYou know the way fighters don't fuck before the fight?" he says. "Sometimes I feel like I'm so focused on training my body and getting my mind right to create this album that sex isn't one of my main priorities. If someone is around that I know and trust, I'm down. But I'm not going to end up with some stranger at this party.

On Love:I had lunch with Will Smith, and listening to him talk, it made me think I don't know what love is. He said something profound. He said love is when you become one and you need that person. It's not about wanting anymore, you need that person. Hearing that, I don't know if I've ever felt that way. I've held women in very high regard almost to the point where I felt like I needed them for a very long time, but I don't know if I comprehend it yet, and I'm okay with that. I've made a lot of music about love being the only thing I'm missing. I think this is the first album I've made saying, I'm okay. I'm enjoying it right now. Maybe this is my time to grind it out, make a run for it and add some memories with my boys.I have a lot of friends back there, and their relationships have become the focal point, the high point of their lives. And that's cool. I just have new goals, new places to go, new people to meet.

On Started From The Bottom: I think a lot of people wish their favorite rapper wrote it—as if a song like that should be gangster—but I was the one who wrote it, and everyone has their bottom. The three biggest misconceptions about me are that I'm a cocky asshole because I'm a famous male rapper, that any part of me wants to be gangster or hood, and that I grew up rich.

On His Story: I wouldn't change a thing. I've told bits and pieces of it—and I'll tell more. Maybe because I had friends who grew up in the hood, I could have acted like I had, too, and perpetrated a different lifestyle, and it would be eating away at me because it wouldn't be the truth. I'm actually here in front of you living the truth. I wake up in the morning and my heart is light, man. It's not heavy. I don't have skeletons in the closet on their way out. This is my real age, my real name, my real past, and I'm good with that
