A few weeks go, Kanye West kicked off a media shitstorm by making some classically Kanye statements in an hour-long interview with BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe. And maybe it’s just a coincidence, but now Drake, Kanye’s peer in transformative rap domination, has sat down for an hour-long interview with a shaggy-haired radio host on a national radio station. In Drake’s case, it’s Jian Ghomenshi on Canada’s Q Radio. And scrolling through it right now, it’s apparent that Drake is just not the type of person to burst out with some ridiculous, overblown, fascinating statements, the way Kanye is, which makes the whole interview way less interesting. Regardless, you can watch it below.
In a quick scroll-through, I haven’t heard Drake say anything about Kendrick Lamar or Future or, indeed, Kanye, which is sort of a shame.
