Um. Wow….What is happening with Drake on this The Source Magazine cover? He’s just about to drop one of the biggest releases of the year, Take Care in two weeks. But I’m confused because I can’t tell if he’s winking, wincing, grimacing, clenching, or grinning. The left side of his face is in pain. The right side…pretty zen, seeing as how he’s biting on metal. And I don’t even want to know what’s happening below deck. *scratches head*

Well, we could deconstruct this photo of Drake nibble-testing the purity of his gold figueroa chain….but what about this interesting quote from Drake’s Source Power 30 cover feature:

When I was a kid trying to figure out what I liked, it was [Kanye] who I related to the most. He was an artist in every sense, from his cover art to his music. Now, I would say he was a really great competitor…

*rubs chin*
Interesting. Is Drake saying that once he looked up to Kanye but now senses some rivalry from his former inspiration? And is Drake skillfully obscuring that emotion by sort of, kind of complimenting Kanye‘s ambition instead? You got two eyes.

I’m looking forward to reading the rest of this story because my girl Kim Osorio wrote it and I’ve been eagerly awaiting Take Care for months. As easy as Drake makes it for web hucksters to make fun of his sweaters and yellow tint stunna shades….he’s still making my favorite songs, consistently.
