Cover boy Drizzy is feelin’ himself…
In the ‘Race’ themed issue, rapper/singer Drake sits down with VIBE for his second cover and reveals how he feels about race, Kanye West, his success and the perception of him being soft.
On race, he says:
“The racism I experienced was being Jewish. Jewish kids didn’t understand how I could be black and Jewish…it was just stupid, annoying rich kids that were close-minded and mean.”
On Kanye West:
“He’s like, the best…My competition is nobody else, by the way. It’s just me and ‘Ye.”
LOL @ by the way… THE SHADE!
On rap’s double standards:
“Man, how come this guy is allowed to do this? How come this guy is allowed to talk about the streets? All he did was be around it, just like me. He didn’t live it, but he’s allowed to talk about it. How come this guy is allowed to make girl records—love records—but they’re not girl records or love records when he does it?” I just have to step back and be like, because it doesn’t matter what those guys do. Whoever that is, it just doesn’t matter. They’re not important enough to be scrutinized like that. So it’s that feeling of accepting that I’m at the top and I don’t give them enough to talk about, so they have to make sh*t. No one ever loves that guy that’s on top.”
Poor Drake… Sounds like a constant struggle. But at least he’s starting to learn not to let it all affect him.
Do you think Kendrick will be laughing at this cover story?
