Here’s what the 39-year-old rapper, who’s chronicled in a portfolio of survivors in rock, had to share:
On getting over an addiction to prescription meds: “I’m very much a creature of habit. If I’m used to waking up in the morning and having [a Red Bull], I could do it every morning for the next ten years straight until I find something else to move on to. So if I’m used to taking a Vicodin when I wake up in the morning because I’m hungover from -drinking or taking pills…The bigger the crowd, the bigger my habit got.”
On going to rehab in 2005: “Every addict in rehab feels like everyone’s staring at them. With me? Everyone was staring at me. I could never be comfortable. There were people there that treated me normal. Then there were a bunch of f—ing idiots who aren’t even concentrating on their own sobriety because they’re so worried about mine. They’re stealing my hats, my books – it was chaos. Everything was drama in there. And at the time, I didn’t really want to get clean. Everybody else wanted me to. And anyone will tell you: If you’re not ready, nothing is going to change you. Love, nothing.”
On getting back to who he is on Recovery: “On an emotional level, I want my music to connect with the same kid who I was. So it was like, ‘Okay, let me get serious. Because I feel like I’m being wrote off right now, and I’m kind of on my last leg.’ I felt like the underdog again.”
Drake is Golden in this album cover. The growth in his work in shown even in the boldness of this album cover. I am most excited about this line up of artist on the the album Stevie Wonder, The Weekend, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross. There will be three version of the album the standard edition, Birthday Edition, and Take Care OG Ron C Edition. I am truly exited about this project.
Drake stated this along with the album cover artwork…
“Feels like it’s been so long. Is life moving so fast in this generation that when we desire something it begins to move in slow motion? Are we just used to getting what we want right away? Or do we require one another to feel right about all that is going on around us? Maybe our anticipation is justified by the fact that we genuinely cannot wait to share a moment again? Either way, your life and mine are scheduled to meet on October 24…I wouldn’t miss it for the world.”
