NecoleBitchie: You can say what you want about Drake, but that man is FOCUSED.
No gimmicks, no beef and no PR-orchestrated relationships will overshadow his music this year. As he gears up for the release of his new album, Nothing Was The Same, he’s covering GQ where he talks about wanting to sit down man-to-man with Chris Brown, as well as his current thoughts on love. In the cover story, titled “How To Drake It In America,” he also reveals that he has no desire to sleep around with random women.
Catch a few highlights:
On refusing to sleep around
You know the way fighters don’t f--- before the fight? Sometimes I feel like I’m so focused on training my body and getting my mind right to create this album that sex isn’t one of my main priorities. If someone is around that I know and trust, I’m down. But I’m not going to end up with some stranger at this party.
[Will Smith said] It’s not about wanting anymore, you need that person. Hearing that, I don’t know if I’ve ever felt that way…I’ve made a lot of music about love being the only thing I’m missing. I think this is the first album I’ve made saying, ‘I’m okay, I’m enjoying it right now.’ Maybe this is my time to grind it out, make a run for it, and add some memories with my boys.
On other rappers criticizing him:
You notice they don’t criticize the music itself, though…I’m okay with that.
On the Chris Brown drama:
I hear he has everything he could want now. I don’t want my name to be synonymous with that guy’s name. I really don’t. I wish we could sit down just like you and me are right now, and talk it out man-to-man. But that’s not going to happen. I’m not confrontational, but if someone challenges, I’m not going to back down. If I think about it too much, I feel it wrapping around my foot, like I get a feeling it could end really badly…Like, it gets really dark.
On “Started From The Bottom”
I think a lot of people wish their favorite rapper wrote it—as if a song like that should be gangster—but I was the one who wrote it, and everyone has their bottom.
As for my whole story, I wouldn’t change a thing. I’ve told bits and pieces of it—and I’ll tell more. Maybe because I had friends who grew up in the hood, I could have acted like I had, too, and perpetrated a different lifestyle, and it would be eating away at me because it wouldn’t be the truth. I’m actually here in front of you living the truth. I wake up in the morning and my heart is light, man. It’s not heavy. I don’t have skeletons in the closet on their way out. This is my real age, my real name, my real past, and I’m good with that.
Drake does a good job of defying every single stereotype of rappers.
NecoleBitchie: It’s amazing what people will do to catch the attention of their favorite celebrity. They will literally sell their soul.
J. Cole’s Born Sinner album hit stores and while interacting with his fans on Twitter, he found out just how crazy folks can be after a fan threatened to kill his little sister if he didn’t get a retweet from J. Cole. The fan posted a photo of him pointing a gun at his little sister (who looked all of 10 or 11) with the caption:
Retweet me and I’ll buy Born Sinner. Don’t retweet me and I’ll kill my lil sister.
Without knowing or taking a chance on whether he was serious or not, J. Cole retweeted the guy and immediately wrote:
Wildest s*** I ever seen on twitter.
After he got his pesky retweet, the guy bragged about it on Twitter, and when someone told him that his mom was going to kill him if she ever found out what he posted, he responded back, “hahahahaha, she was in the room with me.”
Where is child protective services when you need them?
That is an open, blatant, threat and if that guy freely pointed a gun at his sister [joke or no joke], it’s no telling what other traumatic experiences she has gone through at home. This fool definitely needs to catch a case.
The fan’s account was suspended by Twitter. He did all that for a retweet and now he doesn’t even have an account.
CBS 13 - Albuquerque: On Friday morning, a grandmother was at her home in Albuquerque, New Mexico when a guy broke in wearing a purple bandana to cover his face.
The woman wasn't about to let him rob her without a fight, though . . . so she got in his face. He grabbed her, they struggled, and she pulled his bandana down.
And that's when she saw the robber was actually her 22-YEAR-OLD GRANDSON. His name is Thomas Clark.
And instead of being a good grandson . . . or even a remotely decent human being . . . he SHOVED his grandma down, grabbed her purse, and took off.
So she called the police. And we're assuming it wasn't too hard to find him, since she could give them his name, his age, where he lives, his parents' names, and everything other possible bit of personal information they could need.
They quickly tracked him down, and he was arrested on felony robbery charges. His grandma is recovering from the cuts and bruises she suffered when he threw her down.
