HBO's Friday night episode The store I was not disappointed.
After sharing with athletes Ben Simmons, Victor Oladipo, Mo Bamba and Elena Delle Donne, LeBron James welcomed Drake into the store, where they discussed a wide range of topics. Drizzy talked about his relationship with his parents, the mother of his son, and, finally, about the abandonment of the rap game; however, the highlight of the episode was definitely towards the end, when God 6 discussed his problems with Kanye West.
Drake claimed that they connected in the studio before the release of their respective albums, Scorpion Y Ye. The rapper from Chicago pressed Drake to reveal details about his mysterious project, which at that time was made by 60 percent. Drake, assuming that Kanye had good intentions, obeyed.
"I ended up connecting with Ye, and he sold me throughout this speech" I'm in a great place, I'm making money, and I'm a father, and I want to be Quincy Jones and help you. , but to do that, you have to be transparent with me. And you have to touch your music, and you have to tell me when you're going to fall. And I know you do not like doing things like that. & # 39; & # 39; Drake remembered. "And then I was in the studio, I guess we all felt a genuine vibration for that, so I played my music and told him when it was falling."
Drake said that he believed that everything was fine between him and Ye, that is, until he left the Wyoming sessions. He told LeBron that he accepted the invitation to Jackson Hole, not knowing that Kanye was working on his eighth studio album.
"He played me & you stand up for yourself & he told me:" I can have this if you want & # 39; and I was exaggerated. "I started to write to him, then he said: & # 39; You must come to Wyoming & # 39; that's how Wyoming happened, "he explained. "And then (producer Noah" 40 "Shebib) went early to Wyoming and said:" Man, I arrived a day earlier, man, something is wrong. "He's like," This guy is working on an album & # 39; .. And I was like, & # 39; Really? He just told me he wanted to work, like he just told me he wanted to give me beats & # 39;
He continued: "And he said he was not going to fall until October, November, something like that, and I say, everything's fine, let's go and see what it's about." So I went and ended up spending most of it of time working on his music, just trying to make me like the ideas for him ".
During his visit to Wyoming, Drake played "March 14" for Kanye and even showed him a picture of his then secret son.
"I'm in Wyoming, I play it on" March 14. "I sent him a picture of my son," Drake explained. "I tell him I'm having problems with my son's mother, we had a conversation."
The day after the two talked about Drake's family problems, he woke up to find details of his discussion on the Internet.
"I wake up, and all these dates are out, then the next two days, whatever, I wake up now with this passive text of yours," I, I love you, brother ", he recalled. "Lift Yourself & # 39; goes out with him just saying nonsense … Oh, this guy is tracking me … This was like a manipulation, like, & # 39; I want to break you & # 39 ;. So I said well. I know what this is, then the first album falls, and, of course, there is a song of disgust towards me that you produced, that talks about writing, I was just with you as friends helping you, and now I You're upset … So I'm like, man, this is dark. "
As we now know, Drake started working with G.O.O.D. Music team on "Infrared" of Pusha-T Drake responded with "Duppy Freestyle", and Pusha-T responded with "The Story of Adidon", who knew that Drake was a father.
"People love to say, like rap purists and people who love confrontation, they love to say:" Yes, there are no rules in this shit. " But there are damn rules in this shit, "he said." And I'm going to tell you something: it's as if I knew something was going to come up about my son. They had to add the best to make it more attractive, which is fine. I get it. Even that, it was true. Like, Ok Mom and dad, whatever. You do not even know my family. But I tell you, wishing death to my friend who has MS … I study rap battles to make a living. Now when you mention helpless. people who are sick in the hospital, who died, who really sent me to a place where I believed at that moment, and now they believe, that there is only one price that you have to pay for that. It's over. … someone is going to punch you in the fucking face. The shit is over, the event is over. I wanted to do other things. I did not want to improve your reputation or your career by answering and having this exchange. And that was it. is for me."
Drake also explained why he did not drop his answer, which was closed and charged to go.
"I came home and I just heard it, and I said it's not something I want to be remembered for," he said. "This is not a place I necessarily want to go to, and to all the people who enjoy it, I take my hat off, by the way, a chess move, the song, I thought it was trash, but the chess movement was great. Back to the wall, Either I'm completely dirty or I fall and I have a kind of crack in my armor for the rest of the time to a rap purist, which is fine, I can live with it, I'd rather live with that that with the things I was about to … the research I did, the things I was going to say and the places I was going to go, not just for him, but for the other guy too. "
At the beginning of the episode, Drake talked about his relationship with Sophie Brussaux, the mother of his son. He explained that he will always love her and try to maintain a healthy relationship, something that, unfortunately, he did not witness with his own parents.
"I want to be able to explain to my son what happened, but I have no desire not to love his mother, or I never want the world to be angry with his mother, we are in a situation, and we are both equally responsible. I'm really excited to be a great father, I have a son, he's a beautiful child, "he said." No matter what happens, I have an unconditional love for the mother of my son because I want him to love his mother and I have to project that energy But I did not come out of that, I came from my mother saying, "No, your father is this." But one thing my father would never speak ill of my mother, never, never, and my mother is the most kind, kind and sweet woman , but she is a woman despised and a woman exhausted ".
