“Someone asked me the other night what my biggest fear is, and I’ve never really had a good answer for it, but my answer was that all this is for nothing. Kind of the idea that one day, life ends and it just all goes black. And I guess that question sent me, obviously deep into a spiral of thought,”  And it makes me think about my life and how surreal it feels at times. I go back to this day when I was like 13 or 14. I had an audition for a TV show that ultimately shaped my life, and before my audition, I went to this kid’s house. And I, out of, I guess, a desire to be accepted, I would succumb to peer pressure, and I got high with these kids right before my audition.”

He concluded:

“I kind of wonder, like, if something bad happened that day or, you know, maybe I’m still high, maybe I’m in some coma. And this is just me playing out my ideal life. And yeah, that concept has stuck with me for a lot of years. I mean, it feels like reality, it feels tangible. But I definitely wonder sometimes.”

Drake has experienced immense success since his debut on Degrassi, becoming one of the greatest rappers ever. His latest album, ‘Her Loss’, was a collaborative effort with 21 Savage and included a guest appearance from Travis Scott. However, despite its potential, the album received a three-star review from Media due to its lacklustre songwriting. Despite flashes of brilliance from Toronto and Atlanta’s finest, their 16-track collaboration was marred by their shortcomings.
