Drake gets the nod for FADER’s 100th issue cover and the in-depth cover story is up to go along with the reveal today too.
The interview touches a lot on the creative process: how he’s working with 40 on Views and how it’s different this time around. Plus, he touches on ghostwriting and collaboration. Here’s a snippet:
Music at times can be a collaborative process, you know? Who came up with this, who came up with that—for me, it’s like, I know that it takes me to execute every single thing that I’ve done up until this point. And I’m not ashamed.
The entire read is a long one and one worth the click-through, especially since Drake doesn’t do interviews anymore since Rolling Stone at the beginning of 2014 (his quotes on rapping about art were misconstrued to the point that Jay Z addressed it on his “We Made It Freestyle”.)
You’re going to see some more full spread photos and below is the BTS video of the cover shoot. Read ‘Peak Drake’ here (dig that headline too.)
