Mark Drake's Words

The artist steps up his lyrical game on his second album, Take Care

The message Drake ultimately wants to send with Take Care? "Just that I kept my word that I'm getting better, that I haven't lost myself. . . ." and he trails off, spotting someone across the restaurant. He goes into flirtation mode. "Oh, wow, that's a cute baby right there. What's up, boo? What's up, boo?"

The baby, sitting in a stroller, does not respond.

"She's too cool," he laughs. Shop talk resumes. "I think every time I do something people are like, 'I don't know if this Drake's gonna be around.' I just want to prove that I'm keeping my word and getting better at music, and it's not ending anytime soon. I'm inspired by legends like Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Outkast, Biggie, Pac—names that make me feel like a child when I hear them. So I'm not out to the best rapper. I just want to be the best I can for my generation."
