In an interview with The FADER, Drake discusses exactly everything you'd think (and hope) he'd discuss, plus more besides. This arrives after he dropped What A Time To Be Alive the collaborative mixtape with Future that everyone was waiting for.

He talks about the Meek Mill beef, which includes the whole ghostwriting thing, on mentoring other musicians (whereby he channels his mother's own mentoring skills – see below), Skepta, and a whole lot more. A couple of examples…

On the Meek Mill thing:

"This is a discussion about music, and no one's putting forth any music?... Nobody told you that this was a bad idea, to engage in this and not have something?...It was weighing heavy on me. I didn’t get it. I didn't get how there was no strategy on the opposite end. I just didn’t understand. I didn’t understand it because that’s just not how we operate."

On mentoring:

"It's just channeling my mom. Like, I'd bring home an essay that I did really well on, and my mom would read it through and give me notes back—on the essay that I just scored like 94 on! So sometimes I just do that. I'll hear people's stuff and… I'll just give my interpretation of how I would have done it...It's just, literally, I've recognized the potential and the greatness in this piece, and I want to take my stab at it too."

But you can read the whole thing over at The FADER, of course.

Oh and speaking of Drake and Future, here's pre-mixtape DS2 team-up, 'Where Ya At'.
