That's his goal...
Drake recently told journalist Elliott Wilson at New York University's Skirball Center (via Rolling Stone) that his goal is to eventually surpass Kanye West. His album Nothing Was The Same is out now. He was interviewed as part of the CRWN live interview series, presented by Myspace.
He first commented on Kendrick Lamar's diss on him on "Control". He said: "That verse, he's giving people moments. That verse was a moment to talk about. Are you listening to it now? At this point? I can't wait to see what he does because now it's time to show and prove. Consistency. It's been like one album. Consistency is make more than one album. I look forward to seeing what he does. He's super fucking talented."
It's believed that his song "The Language" features a subliminal shot at Lamar.
He then revealed his goal of eventually surpassing Kanye West. He said: "When it comes to competition, I'm more worried about consistency, about bodies of work. I'm talking about hit records . . . that's Kanye West. He's always going to be the guy who's trying to outthink and out-do. That's my guy that I aspire to surpass."
Myspace will present Drake's full conversation in three episode installments starting tomorrow.
