Drake’S Future In Rap Music Is Unlikely
Although Drake is on top of his game right now, he is already thinking about his relevancy to the game in five years. The rapper recently admitted in an interview with i-D Magazine's Milly McMahon that he wants to make as much money as he can now so that he can bow out gracefully when people are no longer impacted by his music…
Drizzy also spoke about finding the right woman to settle down with, hinting that he may already be a retired rapper by that time: "I personally think that when I find that person and when it is established that we're gonna enter a serious relationship. I mean, I don't even know if I'll still be making rap music. I don't know how long I necessarily want to make rap music for. You know, there are artists who are 35 and up that still make rap and that still works for them. I don't know if I want to be that guy."
The artist initially kicked off his career acting in 'Degrassi', and it seems he is still interested in the profession, as he went on to say: "A lot of my music is about being young and figuring it all out. I don't know if I can still make my brand of music when I'm up there. Maybe I'll be just acting or whatever it is. I plan to make as much music as I can until a story from Drake doesn't impact you as it used to."
