Drake Makes Exes Cry, Calls Experience ‘Awkward’
The man of the hour as of late is Young Money MC Drake, who dropped his sophomore LP, 'Take Care,' last week to much fanfare. With sales expected to climb to 725,000 in its first week, the lyrics expressed on the effort must be hitting home for a sea of hip-hop enthusiasts. However, those close to him aren't feeling his rhymes.
The Toronto native told New York Magazine that when he's crafting the storyline for his raps, he doesn't hold back, even when it comes to revealing information about his ex-girlfriends.
"I often get so immersed in the song that I will even go so far as to say somebody's name in it," he revealed. "And then the songs come out and I'm like, 'F---! This is gonna be bad,' you know? And I get those phone calls ... Some people don't understand it, you know? Like, 'Why? Why?' They call me crying. It's rough. I've definitely had my share of awkward experiences due to my music."
The 25-year-old rap star is currently on the road for his Club Paradise tour, performing tracks off 'Take Care' LP. He recently hit Ohio and brought out hometown favorite Machine Gun Kelly to rhyme through his track, 'Wild Boy.' The Bad Boy signee then sat behind the former TV star as he rhymed through his hit 'Headlines.'
