Drake is so cool, he gets paid “just to be there.” At least that is what he told #5 Magazine; in the same issue they dubbed Nicki Minaj “The Queen Of New York.” Drake says his first paycheck came from Hip Hop producer Dr. Dre. The Young Money artist then describes the first fight he ever had.
What was the first record you bought?
I think it was Queen Latifah “U.N.I.T.Y.” That was like the first cassette that I had.
On his first paycheck
It was from Dr. Dre for $10,000 just for being there.
On his first kiss
First kiss is a blur a bit because it was like, “I don’t even know if I kissed that girl.” I’d say the most memorable kiss I had was with this girl Jade Lee. We kissed this one time on the roof of my mom’s old house. We wrote our names on it. It was like some real romantic type ish.
On his first fight
It wasn’t much of a fight, I got my a** whopped. I got jumped at this thing we call “sports weekend” way back in the day. You drive out to Windsor and I was mouthing off to somebody and caught it one time.
On the last pair of sneakers that he bought
It gotta be Jordan. I rep Jordan all day.
On the last car he purchased
It was an Aston Martin but then I gave it back because I want to get this Ferrari Italia.
