Drake is currently prepping the follow up to his debut album Thank Me Later with his sophomore album Take Care, and before the NBA Finals kicked off Krackblog caught up with the YM rapper and Drake speaks on what fans can expect on Take Care.

“I think I finally have a grasp on who I am and who I want to be. I’m just really talking that shit, that shit I’m really saying what I feel. The goal for me, this album, was to dig even deeper. Like somebody told me, ‘I love your lyrics, but it’s almost like I know there’s more. I feel like you’re giving circus raps and people are taking them as the deepest thoughts ever.’ So what I did for this album was to capture this moment in time at the most honest place I can. However it ends up, I’m ready for the world right now.”

As Drake continued he added:

“Sonically, 40 and I started using new sounds and picking up the tempo, picking up the energy. Last album, it was sort of still the struggle with fame, still figuring it all out. And this album, man, I’m here with all my friends from Toronto. We’re living the life. I’m 24 years old and everybody’s happy. I don’t have anybody forcing anything on me, no label or nothing like that. Wayne lets me do whatever I want to do and I got really the people I grew up with here. That’s really what this album is about. It’s about really making this happen. I want people to understand this life, but not from the superficial perspective of ‘Oh it’s so good and we’re all so rich.’ It’s not all that – it’s partly that – but there’s a message behind it.”
