Drake Interview With The Source

Drake recently spoke to The Source about his four Grammy nominations and what his dream performance at the Grammy’s would be, his upcoming Take Care album, going on a Europe tour with J. Cole, and Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album.

Receiving Four Grammy Nominations
“It’s funny, I was talking to Tez yesterday (Cortez Bryant), and he was like “you remember when I couldn’t get you tickets, then I got you tickets and it was on the 300 level, and Wayne was doing Swagger like us?” I was just hyped. I was on my feet the whole time. I was just excited to be there. It was that feeling just being there because that was the room that was in my dreams. I have this reoccurring dream that I am giving this speech and being able to make all these people in my life happy. And I looked around said this is the room, this is it. It’s a GRAMMY award, my dream is a GRAMMY award. So I’m just hyped in there standing up and I hit up Tez that night like, “you ever think we will get a GRAMMY?” Man, I’ll tell you, as much as I’m still as equally as honored to walk away without an award just knowing that the GRAMMY board even recognized my music period…the fact that I still have four opportunities to tell my mother how much of an incredible woman she is…thank not only the managers that have brought me to this point, and just the people in my past who think I have forgotten about them. The fact that I have four opportunities to do that this year is absolutely incredible.”

“I’m making progress on it,” Drake said with a smile Wednesday night at the Grammy nominations concert 1627480 in Los Angeles, where he’d just learned — to his surprise — that he’s up for two awards. “I’m hoping for March now. It’s just pulling everybody together: I had a wish list for my managers of everybody I wanted involved that stem beyond hip-hop. I’m trying to pull it all together.”

One of the top names on his list is a legendary vocalist who recently announced she’ll be releasing her first new album in almost a decade.

“I’m really trying to work with Sade,” he revealed. “Lil Wayne will be on it. Young Jeezy, Jay-Z, Kanye will be doing work on it. It’s in the family.”

There is one other guest that he elected to be coy about. “It’s this other one I’m excited about that’s kinda left [field],” he demurred. “It’s gonna be a great project — well-rounded.”
