Drizzy gets all dapper as he makes the cover of this month’s GQ mag which drops June 25th. As usual in a Drake interview, Chris Brown is bought up. You can check out what Aubrey had to say about Breezy below. You can peep the whole interview with Drake + GQ here
Drake on his feud with Chris Brown:
“I don’t want my name to be synonymous with that guy’s name. I really don’t. I wish we could sit down, just like you and me are right now, and talk it out man-to-man. But that’s not going to happen. I’m not confrontational, but if someone challenges, I’m not going to back down. …It’s embarrassing, the amount of media coverage. Two rappers fighting over the woman. He’s not even a rapper, but still, it’s the last way you want your name out there. It distracts from the music. But he’s made me the enemy, and that’s the way it’s gonna stay, I guess. …If I think about it too much, I feel it wraping around my foot, like I get a feeling it could end really badly.”
Kanye Speaks. With a week to go before his anticipated “Yeezus” album hits the shelves, ‘Ye broke his no-media policy and got comfortable with Jon Caramanica of the New York Times.
Yeezy touched on everything from Parenthood with Kim K, music & fashion backlash, working with Rick Rubin and more. Peep the excerpt from the interview below and read it in it’s full entirety here .
One of the things I thought when I heard the new record was, “This is the anti-’College Dropout.’ ” It feels like you’re shedding skin. Back then, you were like: “I want more sounds. I want more complicated raps. I want all the things.” At what point did that change?
Architecture — you know, this one Corbusier lamp was like, my greatest inspiration. I lived in Paris in this loft space and recorded in my living room, and it just had the worst acoustics possible, but also the songs had to be super simple, because if you turned up some complicated sound and a track with too much bass, it’s not going to work in that space. This is earlier this year. I would go to museums and just like, the Louvre would have a furniture exhibit, and I visited it like, five times, even privately. And I would go see actual Corbusier homes in real life and just talk about, you know, why did they design it? They did like, the biggest glass panes that had ever been done. Like I say, I’m a minimalist in a rapper’s body. It’s cool to bring all those vibes and then eventually come back to Rick [Rubin], because I would always think about Def Jam.
His records did used to say “reduced by Rick Rubin.”
For him, it’s really just inside of him. I’m still just a kid learning about minimalism, and he’s a master of it. It’s just really such a blessing, to be able to work with him. I want to say that after working with Rick, it humbled me to realize why I hadn’t — even though I produced “Watch the Throne”; even though I produced “Dark Fantasy” — why I hadn’t won Album of the Year yet.
This album is moments that I haven’t done before, like just my voice and drums. What people call a rant — but put it next to just a drumbeat, and it cuts to the level of, like, Run-D.M.C. or KRS-One. The last record I can remember — and I’m going to name records that you’ll think are cheesy — but like, J-Kwon, “Tipsy.” People would think that’s like a lower-quality, less intellectual form of hip-hop, but that’s always my No. 1. There’s no opera sounds on this new album, you know what I mean? It’s just like, super low-bit. I’m still, like, slightly a snob, but I completely removed my snob heaven songs; I just removed them altogether.
Just when we thought Jada’s album, “Top 5 dead or Alive” wasn’t going to see the light of day, Kiss sat down with Mikey Fresh and VIBE to discuss the features on the album which include, Styles P, Sheek Louch, Young Jeezy, Wiz Khalifa, Chris Brown, Rick Ross and even the old mixtape Weezy:
“The L.O.X. is definitely on it. Songs that I got done? Jeezy, Wiz, Chris Brown… I got Weezy on there, too. The vintage Weezy, that mixtape killer Weezy. I got Rozay, but we may do another one. My son’s favorite artist is J. Cole, so I think I got to throw him on there,” Kiss continues. He loves A$AP Rocky, but it’ll probably be one of them.”
Jadakiss also mentioned that he’s been working on a collaborative project with Yo Gotti, which was originally intended to drop as a mixtape, but may drop as a commercial product before his album hits stores:
“Me and Yo Gotti got a mixtape done. We might put it out commercially because it’s all original songs. We probably got to do 2-3 more joints, but that’s going shake shit up. That will probably come before my album drops. There’s no title yet but we got some heat rocks.”
Chief Keef launched his limited edition of Beats By Dre headphones yesterday in New York, where he sat down with EMETakeover, where he let loose that he will be featured on Kanye’s upcoming album, “Yeezus” dropping June 18th. With the album being kept under wraps the way it is, we can only wait to see what else Yeezy has in store for us on the album.
