Drake recently sat down with legendary college basketball coach John Calipari on his new Cal Cast podcast. During their discussion, the Toronto rap star opened up about his More Life project saying the main motive behind it is “to keep people excited, give them new music, let them know I’m still hungry.” Also adding, “I’m doing it to be remembered as a forward thinker. I want to be remembered… as an emotion-evoking artist.” Drake also reflected on his acting days during Degrassi and says that he’ll getting back into it: “Acting is another thing that I just can’t wait to really dive into, I think after I release More Life, which is this playlist I’m working on and finish this tour. I think I’m going to really start to position myself in the acting world and, hopefully, take some great roles.”
Drake also talked about some his personal fears:
At the end of the day, it’s all about the time you’re willing to put in. And, my biggest fear is always when I’m not doing it, there’s someone else that’s doing it. That’s my biggest fear in life. When I’m not doing it. When I take a night off for my personal life. When I choose to decompress or relax… not in the back of my mind, in the front of my mind, my biggest fear is if somebody’s not relaxing right now and they’re going to stumble upon something. When you get in the studio you have these moments that ultimately propel your career, you have to ask yourself how many of those did I miss by not going in on this given night or that given night. Because creating music is sometimes all about timing. It’s all about me texting this producer at this certain time… It is truly stars aligning, music is. And It’s scary to think of all the (opportunities) you miss because you didn’t sit in there. You know? So I try to not let myself have that fear.
