Drake Talks Thank Me Later Lyricism

Young Money‘s Drake recently revealed more details surrounding his forthcoming Thank Me Later debut album and said he nearly saved his latest track, “Fear“, for the solo project.

Drizzy also discussed the importance of rappers being more versatile.

“Lyrically, I want to keep the album as genuine and honest as ‘Fear’ is, but musically there will be a little more energy,” he promised. “There will be more moments of triumph, because my life is the best it’s ever been in my 22 years of existence. I want my music to reflect that, but I still want to be able to relate and connect with people. It’s a good indication. There will obviously be some variation — not every track is going to sound like that. I was actually going to save ‘Fear’ for the album, but I wanted to give people another reason to buy the [So Far Gone] EP…You’ve really got to come out and offer people something that’s never been done before or something at a very high level. Take someone like Kanye West who produces, sings, writes and does fashion. He’s beyond the full package. I think that’s becoming requirement these days. You have to do everything.”

    I think Drake is extremely talented and I believe he’s capable of accomplishing a lot of great things in his career and honestly I already see him going down in history as a hip-hop legend just like Jay-Z.
