Drake Reveals Winnie the Pooh Influence on New Album — Say What!
While Drake's influences were decidedly more hip-hop and R&B on his debut, he recently revealed that his current inspiration is none other than Winnie the Pooh. "I bought the first-ever 'Winnie the Pooh' books, like all four 'Winnie the Pooh' books...It cost me a lot of pounds, man. I probably could have bought a small car for that," he explained, after a recent trip to the UK. "They were a huge part of my childhood. Winnie the Pooh is like super not hip-hop...That's my influence, man, Winnie the Pooh on this next album." Great. [Rap-Up]
