So it seems that there is more ammunition for the haters out there that jump on Drake and his “soft” ways as the Young Money rapper opened up further during an interview with The Guardian newspaper.
His sophomore album Take Care dropped last year and he just mentions that with the release of the album the weight upon his shoulders had increased and he had to turn to certain substances to relieve the tension.
“Have I sipped codeine before? Yeah, of course. Have I smoked weed? Yes. Do I drink wine? Yes. But do I do it excessively? No. I’m not a reckless guy. I do it all within moderation”.
“You get artists in this position who go crazy and don’t know how to handle it,” he said. “There are people who have killed themselves. There’s the overwhelming stress, how tired you are, the weight on your shoulders of going out there and giving 18,000 people entertainment… it’s a lot of pressure”.
What are your thoughts? Do you think he’s a “Pussy” or do you feel that it’s acceptable for a rapper to not handle the pressure?
