Drake Discusses His Upcoming 2013 MTV VMAs Performance & Wanting To Win A KAWS Moonman

Interviews

MTV recently caught up with Drake backstage at the Barclays Center in New York City after he had finished his rehearsals for the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, which are taking place tonight.

Above, Drizzy explains what he has in store for his performance and mentions that it will be his first time ever singing live on television. He will be performing both his singles “Hold On, We’re Going Home” and “Started From The Bottom“.

“I get to do the new record, I’m doing ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home’ into ‘Started From the Bottom,’ so it’s really just an exciting performance to show the range and also show the diversity of music on the album.”

“We’re blowing the stage up, I got things going off, I had to test with the fire marshall and it’s gonna be good. I’ve been doing this for a while, pyro doesn’t scare me. You know I’m ready, if you’ve ever been on stage with Lil Wayne, he likes explosions and they’re loud you know, so I’m used to it.”

“I’m pretty much just trying to stay consistent. I released the artwork the other day, so you’ll see a bit of that in there. Just trying to set it off, September 24, that’s all I’m focused on, this performance and then just going home to put some final touches on the album with 40 and that’s it.”

After the jump below, you can watch part 2 of Drizzy Drake‘s interview with MTV. He talks about how badly he wants to win a KAWS Moonman and if he loses out to Macklemore, he will offer him money to buy his award.

“I might have to tell Macklemore like, ‘Yo, I’ll buy that trophy off of you if he beats me’. I really want one bad. ‘Started From the Bottom’ was like my first time stepping up as a director, getting a director’s credit with Little X. I couldn’t ask for a better moment. I need the trophy for my house, period — even if somebody else gets one I might buy it off them.”

“It’s just a great moment. ‘Started From the Bottom,’ first song off Nothing was the Same, I directed the video, crazy video, a lot of fun. I had my cousin and Obi in there making people laugh, it was just all my vision from the get go, so to win for that video would be like the greatest thing ever.”

“I think it’s just being from the same city, knowing each other for so long. It’s not really like I’m shooting a video with a director that I’m intimidated by, somebody who I don’t get a long with. I think he’s really started to understand what the OVO brand is about, what the Drake brand is about, how I want to be represented. The fact that I want to have fun in the videos and that’s what ‘HYFR’ and ‘Started From the Bottom’ was really about and I think we got the point across.”

“You’ll definitely see more Obi, Obi’s the real star, I’m just like the guy on the side.”

    I expect nothing but the best from Drake. His music is replayed repeatedly on the radio for a reason because he is amazon. I have a blog where I focus on the small name artist but I wrote a review on Drake because I respect this man’s grind.
