Drake Misses Kissing Fans, and a Million Other Drake-y Anecdotes From His Hour-Long Nardwuar Interview

By

The last time Nardwuar interviewed Drake, it was 2010, and Drake was hardly thought of as a demigod, much less the 6 God. Fast forward six (naturally) years and the man is selling a million-plus albums in a week and making streaming history, so you can practically call him Zeus. But even a deity of Drake's status still has time for the Human Serviette — an hour's worth of time, in fact. Like Zane Lowe before him, Nardwuar recently got the coveted invite to Noah "40" Shebib's studio in Toronto for a sprawling conversation with his Canadian brethren Drake and 40. Would you like a Drake anecdote? How about, say, 20? Come to watch Drake get a message from "Hotline Bling" sample Timmy Thomas, and talk about nearly getting arrested in Jamaica (for cursing, he-he), trying to slide into Pam Grier's DMs, making out with Degrassi's Paige, and hooking up with fans (prepare to be disappointed). Stay to hear Nardwuar adorably mispronounce Mavado and the Winans.
