Another day, another Drake headline fresh off his Boy Better Know tattoo reveal to the release of his W Magazine cover, Drake truly does stay busy being relevant every day. No matter what season, day or time Drake is consistently ready to make headlines with every move he makes.
Making the cover of W Magazine though is a major step for the toronto native as the cover seems to delve more into his approach to art rather than his work ethic and it seems Drake is finally taking those steps to step out of just being hip-hop’s current king to taking over the entirety of arts. Doesn’t matter whether it is fashion, where his OVO crew is currently killing it with new seasonal garments (check out the lookbook here) or whether it is music Drake is currently conquering the art scene. He isn’t finished either in his interview with W Magazine Drake talks about considering getting back into acting and his interest in making movies now, “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.” although he does mention that doing music and acting is what got him fired from Degrassi in the first place.
Drake also discusses his experience with art in terms paintings whilst growing up stating “We didn’t really have paintings on the walls, but I grew up with album covers!” which is the most genuine answer an artist can give without trying to deceive fans by running off a list of famous artists that Jay-Z has mentioned in his lyrics.
