Video: Drake Thinks Knee Injury Was ‘In The Plan’

“[This is] giving me a chance to come home,” Drake told MTV News about his injury. “With the series of events that have happened since I’ve been home, I’ve finally got my first place in Toronto by myself, which has been an amazing experience. I’ve gotten to see a lot of friends. We did that Toronto show. We had an amazing night — me, [Young] Jeezy and Trey [Songz] and everybody at a restaurant.

“That and the music I started making,” he continued. “I finally made peace with my city. And that was important for me to start this album, because I didn’t feel peace here. I was starting to come home and feel like everybody was staring at me weird. I was starting to feel a little paranoid. A couple things will happen, people will try to check on you. And you just get to the point where it’s like, ‘I don’t feel comfortable at home.’ That’s a bad thing, especially when Toronto inspires so much of the music that I make.”

While he’s been in Toronto, Drake also worked on the video for “Successful,” featuring Lil Wayne and Trey Songz. While on the set, Jamie Foxx stopped by and talked to the upstart MC about his injury, pleading with him to take it easy. Drake said he’s gotten text messages from LeBron James and Chris Paul echoing the sentiment. “[They] told me, ‘This is serious what you’re dealing with, a sports injury,’ ” Drake explained. “Everyone is telling me cool out.”

Video: Drake Sets Date For Knee Surgery

He took to Twitter on Sunday (August 16) and sent word that he’ll be undergoing surgery on his knee — which suffered three torn ligaments — on September 8.

“In the studio … working on Thank Me Later … magic … surgery September 8th,” he wrote. “Then we’re back in business.”

Drake spoke to MTV News recently about his second injury, which he said rivaled the pain of his initial mishap. In June the rapper tore his ACL, MCL and LCL while playing basketball. He was set to join Wayne, Young Jeezy and Soulja Boy Tell’em as one of the America’s Most Wanted headliners. After his injury, though, he shortened his set from a full production to a reduced medley of hits during Wayne’s time. But excitement got the best of Drake when he ran across the stage at Camden’s Susquehanna Bank Center during his performance of “Best I Ever Had.”

“The stride that I had, I planted with my right and I had a brace on,” he recalled of the moment. “I would say it was borderline more painful than the initial tear. It was bad. It buckled, popped. I was down. I remember slapping the ground. I couldn’t believe it. I saw the lights coming down. [And I was thinking] ‘Did I just fall?’ I was in so much pain then that I didn’t care at the time. They actually cut a nice pair of jeans that I had, all the way up. Bad. But it’s all part of my story. I feel like maybe it needed to happen. I came out on that tour for one reason and one reason only — I didn’t show up for the money or the fact that I even needed it right now. I showed up there for the fans that genuinely saw me on the tour [bill] and said, ‘That’s why I’m going.’ “
