Earlier this year, Rio Ferdinand interviewed Drake for the latest issue of #5 Magazine, which also features Nicki Minaj on the front cover. Drizzy talks to Rio about how he became a Manchester United fan, acting, rapping, traveling with Lil Wayne, Weezy’s work ethic, his So Far Gone mixtape, his forthcoming Take Care album, award nominations, pressure, and lots more! You can watch the full 20 minute interview in the video above, courtesy of RapDose.
Drake told MTV on the set of DJ Khaled’s “I’m On One” video shoot that he will be partying and using the holiday to see how his upcoming Take Care album will work in a club setting.
“So this is my first Memorial weekend really participating this heavily,” Drizzy said from the set of DJ Khaled’s “I’m On One” video shoot in Miami. “I just want to get out there and touch the people, slap everybody’s hand, see the women; just let them know I’m out here. Let them see me, because they haven’t seen me in a while.”
It isn’t all work however. Drake hints that will be observing the crowds and using his experience to fine tune his album. “And I got this album coming it’s called Take Care, so I just really want to get out here and check the climate. I wanna hear the records, see how everybody’s moving, see what everybody’s lovin’, because I know I got a great body of work,” he said. “I’m ready to give it away, I’m using this weekend as study research. I’ll be getting as drunk as I can trying to fit in, doin’ it like that.”

In the video above, you can watch StarCam‘s interview with Cory and Peter Gunz. They discuss their MTV show “Son Of A Gun“, what it was like being on the “I Am Still Music” tour, what it’s like working with Lil Wayne, Drake, and Nicki Minaj, his upcoming Son Of A Gun EP, and more.
Even though this interview was only recently posted on the net, it took place over a month ago, so that is why Cory says some things like “Tha Carter IV drops May 16th”.
