Drake One of Three GQ April Style Issue Cover Stars

Hip-hop sensation Drake has never had an office job, but that hasn’t stopped him from being young and moneyed. When he wears a suit, it’s to hit the club.  As one of three cover stars of GQ’s special April “Style Bible” issue, he helps show what rules to break when it comes to unleashing the power of your own power suit (photos by Sebastian Kim/GQ). Drake also opens up to GQ, sharing his feelings on women, today’s generation of rappers, and his finding influences for his music. The April issue hits stand nationwide on March 20.


On the new generation of rappers…
“Rap now is just being young an fly and having your shit together. The mood of rap has changed.”

On his bad boy persona…
“I’m mischievous, but I’m calculated.”

On finding influences for his songwriting…
“I’m trying to find the same feelings that I had for women when I had very little going on, which is tough. When I was in my mom’s house, I had nowhere to go, no real obligations. My girlfriend at the time, if she was mad at me, my day was all fucked-up. I didn’t have anything else. And that made for some of the best music, I think, to date. Records where I felt small. …It’s really difficult for me to find something that makes me feel small.”

On past promiscuity…
“There’s just a time where it was like, just getting pussy. Where I was in that sort of ‘I’m young, I’m going to disconnect from my emotions and just do what everyone else tells me I should do and just a be a rapper and have my fun.’ And for me as a person, it just doesn’t work. The seconds after a man reaches climax, that’s the realest moment of your life. If I don’t want you next to me in that fifteen, twenty seconds, then there’s something wrong.”
