Drake Speaks on “Started From The Bottom”…Says ‘A Lot Of People Wish Their Favorite Rapper Wrote It’

Posted By on June 18, 2013

Drake is having one hell of a year.

In the latest issue of GQ,  Toronto native Drake got personal when discussing his massive hit “Started From The Bottom” , telling his life story through his music, and  growing up with people from all walks of life.

I think a lot of people wish their favorite rapper wrote it–as if a song like that should be gangster–but I was the one who wrote it, and everyone has their bottom. As for my whole story, I wouldn’t change a thing. I’ve told bits and pieces of it–and I’ll tell more. Maybe because I had friends who grew up in the hood, I could have acted like I had, too, and perpetrated a different lifestyle, and it would be eating away at me because it wouldn’t be the truth. I’m actually here in front of you living the truth. I wake up in the morning and my heart is light, man. It’s not heavy. I don’t have skeletons in the closet on their way out. This is my real age, my real name, my real past, and I’m good with that.” (GQ)

Drake’s issue of GQ  is on shelves now.
