Last night, Drizzy Drake graced Elliot Wilson’s CRWN stage for the first time. Taking place at the NYU Shimmel center, October’s very own talked to the packed audience for over 2 hours. He gave away tons of intimate details about the recording of Nothing Was The Same and bits of his personal life. Myspace is set to release the video clips starting on Wednesday, but one particular moment made it’s way online already. When YN asked how he really felt about Kendrick’s “Control” verse, Drake didn’t seemed to moved by K. Dot’s lyrics. However, he admitted that they saw each other in person after at the VMAs and it was all love, but in Drake’s eyes it doesn’t seem like the verse has his complete cosign.
“That [‘Control’] verse was a moment to talk about. Are you listening to it now, though?,” he asked, hushing all 850 attendees at NYU’s Skirball Center, including Wilson. Drake continued: “He didn’t come in there on some wild, ‘I’m in New York, fuck everybody.’ I almost wish he had come in there on that shit because I kind of lost a little bit of respect for the sentiment of the verse,” Drake said. “If it’s really ‘fuck everybody’ then it needs to be ‘fuck everybody’. It can’t just be halfway.”
