Drizzy is covering the special 150th issue of XXL and is telling all about why he stays real and others don't, his biggest competition (Mr. West) and that murderous vajayjay comment from Amanda Bynes.

 

Check out the highlights inside...

He's the guy you can blame for the rampant #StartedFromTheBottomNowWeHere hashtags on Instagram and beyond.  And he's also once again created major buzz around his upcoming album.  Toronto's native son Drake is dishing to XXL about how the Jewish community sees his tv-to-rap success, murdering vajayjay and more.

Check the highlights:

 

ON THE NEW ALBUM
I remember coming into this year thinking, “How am I going to cut through all these people and shine?” I’ve never been part of a year when so many legends are dropping projects. How am I going to be seen? I’m going to be like the kid waving in the background in the photo with all of his tall relatives. And, I guess, those were my initial thoughts, and not to say that I haven’t enjoyed some of the stuff that has come out this year, but it didn’t pan out the way I thought it was going to. I think I am going for it, to really establish what are murmurs or things being said quietly, “Um, I think that Drake might actually…” On September 17th I want people to be like, “Oh, we were right.”

ON HIS IMAGE
Do I think that if I didn’t have, for lack of a better term, a unique look about me, if I was from somewhere in America and if I hadn’t been on a kids TV show [Degrassi: The Next Generation], would I be as famous? I don’t know, man. Honestly, I don’t think so. I was just some young kid on a TV show. And I haven’t become anything else while I’ve been in this position. It’s not like I got here and was like, “Oh, got to switch up my image.” I don’t wake up nervous. I feel like maybe a lot of these guys do. How old are you, really? What is your background, really? What have you really done in the drug game, in the thug game?

ON THE COMPETITION
It’s tough for me. That’s a guy I can’t pretend not to like. He’s the guy to me, in a lot of ways. That’s Kanye West. But I’m also here to be the best. I’m here to surpass. I’m here to outdo. I’m ready for whatever with anybody.

ON HIS SUCCESS
I get Jewish people coming up to me proud like, “Mazel Tov, bro. Come to my house for Shabbat dinner.”

AMANDA BYNES
I don’t even know who that is doing that or what that’s about. If that is her, I guess it’s a little weird and disturbing. It’s obviously a behavioral pattern that is way bigger than me. Whoever is behind it, whether it’s her or somebody else, they know people are paying attention so they keep it going.

Drake's Nothing Was The Same album hits stores September 17th while his XXL cover issue hits stands August 20th. 

And if that's not enough emo-rapperdom for your life, the "Hold On, We're Going Home" rapper is kicking off his 41-city "Would You Like A Tour?" tour September 25th in Portland.
