Drake recently opened up for cameras in a rare interview, documenting his early life and journey toward fame in a video documentary series produced by The FADER to support Sprite’s Obey Your Verse lyrical collection. In this interview, released today, Drake speaks about emerging from an underdog city, Internet culture and rap’s increasingly level playing field. Coming up in Toronto, he explains, people told him to move to New York if he was serious about making it. Instead, he stayed where he was and made history by proving that if you’re truly a multi-layered artist, you can make it from anywhere. “Do it the way I did it,” he says. “Do it from where you’re at. If you have the music, that’s all it takes.”
