FADER and Sprite recently teamed up to bring us the Obey Your Thirst campaign in which they’ve created a mini documentary series, where Drake opens up to cameras about his childhood and journey to the top.
Drizzy speaks on coming from a city that isn’t known for their music scene. He recalls the times when everyone told him he’d never make it out of Toronto, and insisted he moved to New York City for a better chance in the music game. Drake realized it wasn’t about location, it was about material, and that if he put out good enough music it was bound to be heard regardless of his place of residency.
“Do it from where you’re at. If you have the music, that’s all it takes.”
At 28 years old Drake has been consistently winning, so it’s no surprise that he isn’t too worried about “competition”. However, Drake admitted that he’s more worried about upcoming rappers than he is of those already in the limelight.
“I’m not worried about these other rappers, I’m not competing with those guys. I already know their hand, I know their move. I study everything. I’m worried about the kid that’s sitting in his house that wants to be better than me and all those guys. That’s who I’m competing with.”
