Drake On The Cover Of XXL Mag’s 150th Issue


It’s been Drake’s week so far! Fresh off his spectacular OVOFEST in Toronto, XXL decided to let the cat out of the bag! Aubrey is on the cover of the magazine 16th anniversary issue. Here’s a small excerpt on “Nothing was the same” LP. Hits new stands August 20th.

I remember coming into this year thinking, “How am I going to cut through all these people and shine?” I’ve never been part of a year when so many legends are dropping projects. How am I going to be seen? I’m going to be like the kid waving in the background in the photo with all of his tall relatives. And, I guess, those were my initial thoughts, and not to say that I haven’t enjoyed some of the stuff that has come out this year, but it didn’t pan out the way I thought it was going to. I think I am going for it, to really establish what are murmurs or things being said quietly, “Um, I think that Drake might actually…” On September 17th I want people to be like, “Oh, we were right.”
