Drake’s NYU Interview
On Sunday Night, Drake was asked a variety of questions by Rap Radar’s Elliot Wilson in an interview for Wilson’s CRWN Interview at NYU. Drake gave a variety of great responses but his best might have been his thoughts on Kendrick Lamar’s verse on Control.
Elliot Wilson: What did you think of “Control?”
Drake’s Response: ”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. If it’s really ‘fuck everybody’ then it needs to be ‘fuck everybody’. It can’t just be halfway.”

Question: “How do you feel about being [Amanda Bynes'] Twitter obsession?”
Drake’s Response: “I don’t even know who that is doing that or what that’s about. If that is her, it’s a little weird and disturbing. It’s obviously a behavior pattern that is way bigger than me. Whoever is behind it, whether it’s her or somebody else, they know people are paying attention so they keep it going.”
