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.
