Can we get a “Ho Sit Down” for 600 Alex? GQ put Drizzy one of their three covers this April (John Slattery and Dave Franco got the others) and he used the opportunity to get all swarmy with one of their writers. SMH.
Check out a few excerpts from the interview below:
On the new generation of rappers…
“Rap now is just being young a
n fly and having your isht together. The mood of rap has changed.”
On his bad boy persona…
“I’m mischievous, but I’m calculated.”
On finding influences for his songwriting…
“I’m trying to find the same feelings that I had for women when I had very little going on, which is tough. When I was in my mom’s house, I had nowhere to go, no real obligations. My girlfriend at the time, if she was mad at me, my day was all f***ed-up. I didn’t have anything else. And that made for some of the best music, I think, to date. Records where I felt small. …It’s really difficult for me to find something that makes me feel small.”
On past promiscuity…
“There’s just a time where it was like, just getting p*$$y. Where I was in that sort of ‘I’m young, I’m going to disconnect from my emotions and just do what everyone else tells me I should do and just a be a rapper and have my fun.’ And for me as a person, it just doesn’t work. The seconds after a man reaches climax, that’s the realest moment of your life. If I don’t want you next to me in that fifteen, twenty seconds, then there’s something wrong.”
While it’s hard to such profundity, you gotta hit the flip to read about how he tried to proposition the writer and got real for a minute talking about his dad.
Oh and you gotta see him on his skinny jean squat!
