Drake is a talented, highly sought after rapper/actor. He took the world by storm with his third mixtape So Far Gone and debut album Thank Me Later. Solidified and back with a new effort, Drake is on the promo-trail for Take Care.
GQ caught up with him to ask him about the project and what’s his ideal girl. Drake responded:
On his kind of woman-
Who’s the ideal girl? She is very funny, very supportive, understands that right now I’m trying to build with somebody. The ideal girl is driven, working on something other than modeling or being a singer…Or being seen. She’s probably in New York to be honest with you. There are a lot of good women in New York.
On rapping with emotion-
That’s tough. I wish that we lived in a time and a generation where people would stop viewing my honesty as overly emotional. People always act like I spend my life crying in a dark room. I don’t, I’m good. I’m a man. I want to be remembered as an artist that gave you a piece of me, as opposed to some surface bullsh*t. I don’t think people realize that we die, we leave here, and either they forget about you or remember you. And how they remember you is up to you. I just want to be remembered as a poet that was open and honest because I wake up every morning and I’m me.
