Drake covers GQ magazine’s April 2012 “Style Bible” issue. The rapper gets suited and booted for his dapper spread. He talks about his relationship with his father, how the rap game has changed and past promiscuity.
On his current relationship with his dad: “Me and my dad are friends. We’re cool. I’ll never be disappointed again, because I don’t expect anything anymore from him. I just let him exist, and that’s how we get along. We laugh. We have drinks together. But I spent too many nights looking by the window, seeing if the car was going to pull up. And the car never came.”
On how rap has changed: ”Rap now is just being young and fly and having your sh*t together. The mood of rap has changed.
On why he no longer sleeps around: “There’s just a time where it was like, just getting p**sy. 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 be a rapper and have my fun.’ And for me as a person, it just doesn’t work. I just need something else. The seconds after a man reaches climax, that’s like 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.”
