Above, Drake explains to MTV how he picks what features to hop on and calls Rich Homie Quan‘s “Type Of Way” single the song of the summer.
Drizzy also mentions that he was supposed to rap on “Type Of Way“, but he has been too busy trying to finish his upcoming Nothing Was The Same album.
“I was sitting with DJ Drama and a bunch of people in the studio just debating about Atlanta records and when I heard ‘Versace,’ right away I liked it. Shout out to Rich Homie Quan too, he’s killing it on his own, but it was a toss-up between Migos and Rich Home Quan as far as records I loved and wanted to get on. I was supposed to do ‘Type of Way’ also and I probably should’ve done them both but I’ve just been trying to finish this album.”
“That record is the song of the summer, I regret not getting on it, but I feel like now if I get on it, people are gonna be like ‘ah man you waited too long,'” he added. “I like to have the jump on it. I wish I would’ve written that record. That’s Toronto talk — you feel a type of way, that’s our lingo, so I should’ve probably been involved in that.”
“As far as for people I don’t know, I pick songs that I feel like I’ll fit well on, or I have a flow for it. And then everybody else is just…I like organic things, things that come together. ‘Jodeci Freestyle,’ for example, even though it’s my record, it only made sense to throw Cole on it because he’s just so good at rap that I wanted to hear him rap on that beat.”
