While out in London on his “The Boy Meets World” tour, Drake chopped it up with DJ Semtex for a one-on-one interview. You can listen to the audio of their conversation below, but check back on Monday to watch a video of the full interview.

During their lengthy conversation, Drizzy spoke on realizing his turning point in the music industry was when Lil Wayne rapped his “Money To Blow” verse live at the MTV Video Music Awards, working with Wayne, his So Far Gone mixtape, ghostwriting for Dr. Dre, and his Views album.

The 6 God also discussed his “One Dance single, why he released “Pop Style” at the same time, how he discovered Kyla‘s original song, racism, why he doesn’t want his 2 new Grammy awards, Quentin Miller, his beef with Meek Mill, people thinking he stole the flow of XXXTENTACION, why More Life is a playlist and not an album, Skepta, UK rap, Giggs, his OVO Sound Radio show, and Santan Dave.

Throughout the interview, Drizzy Drake even revealed that he has distanced himself from Kanye West after he brought up his and DJ Khaled‘s name in a rant and so they are no longer working on a joint project, can not see him and Meek ever being friends, and thinks the best rappers are in London!

Drake Teases Collaboration Album With Kanye West

Yesterday, Drake teased his and Kanye West‘s upcoming collaboration album by sharing the picture above on his Instagram page with a caption: “There goes the neighborhood”.

Yeezy‘s manager, Scooter Braun, also left a comment on the photo saying: “It begins…” with four clapping emojis and if anyone would know anything about the joint project, it would be Scooter.

This collaboration project from Drizzy and Kanye has been teased all throughout 2016 and more recently in the summer when West asked the crowd at OVO Fest if they are ready to hear a joint album from them, as well as when they added billboards up around Los Angeles.

The biggest confirmation of all comes from Kanye West when he mentioned in an interview in September that him and the 6 God are indeed working on an album together. As of right now, there is no release date for the project, but Drizzy Drake still plans to drop More Life in December!

Drake Responds To Kid Cudi Diss During His Summer Sixteen Tour In Oakland

Kid Cudi took to Twitter earlier this week to diss Drake and Kanye West: “I need y’all to know I got so many haters within the industry and these clowns know I’m bout to crush their entire existence. Everyone thinks they’re soooo great. Talkin top 5 and be having 30 people write songs for them. My tweets apply to who they apply. Ye, Drake, whoever. These niggas dont give a fuck about me. And they ain’t fuckin with me”.

Drizzy responded back to Kid Cudi‘s criticism during his “Summer Sixteen” tour at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California on September 14th by switching up the lyrics on O.T. Genasis’ “Cut It” song to say: “Boy you getting way too high, you need to Cudi”. If you didn’t already know, Cudi has had drug trouble in the past.
