“[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.”
