Drake graces the cover of XXL magazine’s September 2013 issue, which is also the magazine’s 150th cover!
Here’s what the 26-year-old rapper had to share with the mag:
On Amanda Bynes‘ tweets calling him “ugly”: “I don’t even know who is doing that or what that’s about. If that is her, I guess it’s a little weird and disturbing. It’s obviously a behavioral pattern that is way bigger than me. Whoever is behind it, whether it’s her or somebody else, they know people are paying attention so they keep it going.”
On his general success: “I get Jewish people coming up to me proud like, ‘Mazel Tov, bro. Come to my house for Shabbat dinner.’”
On his upcoming album: “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.’”
