Drake on Billboad New Issue + Kendrick Lamar's "Control" verse

An excerpt of Drake's interview with Billboard has been released. Drake discusses his thoughts on Kendrick Lamar's "Control" verse, who name-checked the Toronto rapper, among others.

"I didn't really have anything to say about it," Drake says. "It just sounded like an ambitious thought to me. That's all it was. I know good and well that Kendrick's not murdering me, at all, in any platform. So when that day presents itself, I guess we can revisit the topic."

With his own label OVO Sound in full effect, Drake also touched on the dynamic of his working relationship with Lil Wayne, and how he wants to approach his own artists when the time comes. "Being an artist that's signed to another artist, I understand how much of a representation I am of that artist," he states. "So I want to be extremely selective. I want artists who are, first and foremost, genuinely good people who are good to be around, and second, who have pure talent and will make me look smart for signing them [laughs]."
