Drake Talks Living In Toronto, Acting, And Pressure In W Magazine’s Art Issue

This week W Magazine revealed their new art issue cover and it features none other than Drake. 

The cover picture (above) was photographed by Caitlin Cronenberg and the artwork was done by KAWS. Additionally, five artist captured Drake in their own way for the issue. These artists include Mark Flood, Henry Taylor, KAWS, Katherine Bernhardt, and JIM JOE. Inside the cover, Drake talks being “kicked off of Degrassi”, living in Toronto, acting, and more!

Check out some excerpts and photos from the shoot below.



On being “kicked off” of Degrassi:

“That was part of the reason I was kicked off the show. Back then, I’d spend a full day on set and then go to the studio to make music until 4 or 5 a.m. I’d sleep in my dressing room and then be in front of the cameras again by 9 a.m. Eventually, they realized I was juggling two professions and told me I had to choose. I chose this life.”

On getting back to acting: 

“I can’t wait to get back into acting. No one ever asks me to do movies, and, although music is my focal point now, I’d love to do a film. That was the life that I lived before, and it would be interesting to live it again.”

On living in Toronto:

“Most people I know stay in Toronto. I plan to spend the rest of my life there. The talk, the smell, the sound that comes out of that city is home to me. When I think about the girls I want to get romantic with, it’s a girl from Toronto who knows what I’m talking about when we drive around the city.”

On pressure:

“Actually, I love pressure! I’m always thinking, How do I top what I’ve done? How do I make this thing stronger? I ask myself, ‘Why does Adele’s album go diamond, and how do I do that? How do I create art that makes minds stretch further?’ I want to give many, many people many, many moments before I’m gone. That’s truly the art of what I do. It’s the only goal.”
