Drake: ‘I Would Liken Myself to Kevin Durant’

by November 17, 2011

Drake’s highly anticipated (and wildly divisive) album “Take Care” has predictably been the most talked-about subject in the music world over the last few weeks. The Canadian emo rapper/crooner tells Rolling Stone that he is like Kevin Durant when it comes to dealing with haters. Or something: “Of course, when you’ve had the kind of success Drake’s had – his new album is projected to sell over 700,000 copies in its first week – there are going to be some haters. Take the Ludacris dis track that just surfaced, and is reported to take aim at Drake and Big Sean. Without mentioning any names, Drake makes it clear that he isn’t worried about his detractors. ‘I would liken myself to [NBA star] Kevin Durant just based off the fact I think Kevin Durant is somebody who people want him so bad to fall or mess up, but he just consistently delivers,’ Drake said. ‘Every night and all these games he’s playing now, even with the lockout, he just consistently delivers the same highlights, the same amount of points.'”
