You know you’re a star when people offer you their puppies or a girl is having a very audible conniption fit. Congrats. This behind the scenes video of Drake’s “legendary” cover of the upcoming Feb/March issue of Complex is a uproariously funny (hard to count the number of girls buggin’ out) and the only calm person is Drake himself. I know we like to knock him, but his bravado is part of his charm and it sounds like he actually has a good head on his shoulders.
A little excerpt::
You feel like you’re at the finish line?
Drake: I’m at the starting line. Those guys are at home, putting on their tracksuits, getting ready to make their attack. When J. Cole gets it super-right, I think he’s gonna have a place as a Nas-type character who really stands for hip-hop, but still makes ill records that everybody fucks with.
If J. Cole is Nas, then who are you?
Drake: [Laughs.] I’m the young big homie!
