“We can still be ourselves without him. I don't need Wayne to be Drake. I'm a better Drake when Wayne is here, but I don't need Wayne to be Drake. Nicki doesn't need Wayne to be Nicki. She created Nicki Minaj. We're all a better team when he's here, but it's not a necessity. For us, it's a great thing so we can still carry this movement."
