DRAKE has stated he’s cool with being known as a “emotional” rapper.
The Marvin’s Room creator confessed that he really like being in touch with his inner side, expressing his feelings through his music.
“If I worried about how I’m gonna look saying this, then I wouldn’t make half the music I make,” Drake explained in a new interview with MTV News.
“People nitpick at me for being emotional or tapping into emotions, but like…that’s just how I want to be remembered. The running commentary or the jokes don’t really affect me, ’cause that’s what I’m going for.”
DRAKE even goes as far as to say being super emo is what makes him unique.
“I don’t want to be a guy that blends in with all the other generic rap music. I want to be the guy that stood out and pinpointed life emotions for women, men, young people, old people or whatever it is. So I don’t trip, that’s what I want. I welcome it.”
DRAKE’s forthcoming sophomore LP Take Care drops November 15.
