Video: Drake Speaks On Being Labeled As “Emo”

October 18, 2011 by Danny M


“If I worried about how I’m gonna look saying this, then I wouldn’t make half the music I make,” Drizzy told MTV News. “People nitpick at me for being emotional or tapping into emotions, but like, man, we all die one day; that’s just how I want to be remembered.”

“The running commentary or the jokes don’t really affect me, ’cause that’s what I’m going for,” he said. “I don’t want to be a guy that blends in with all the other generic rap music. I want to be the guy that stood out and pinpointed life emotions for women, men, young people, old people or whatever it is. So I don’t trip, that’s what I want. I welcome it.”
