Rapper Drake, whose best-selling Thank Me Later is sure to land atop many critic's Top 10 lists this year, is already immersed in thinking about and planning its follow up, Take Care. He wants to make like Frank Sinatra and do things his way.
The Canadian rapper stated in an interview that "Take Care is its own mission. I'm really going back to the So Far Gone where, first of all, as much as the label and people are fighting me, I'm not doing 14 songs, 'cause it doesn't give me enough. I want to do interludes, transitions and different moments. I have an overabundance. I've never had this many raps...It's gonna be an experience...I often hear people reference So Far Gone and Comeback Season, 'Aww, we miss that.' And while that was a point in time they miss, I was an underdog, and that will never happen again, unfortunately...That's not to say I can't provoke those same emotions...I really want to write great 'life' raps. I just want to write for the people and speak for my generation."
Are you excited about the direction that Drake is taking with Take Care?
