Drake Says He A ‘Big Homie’ Like Jay Z + Fixes Relationship With Nicki Minaj
Drake says there is still a perception of him as an impressionable newcomer which he has no interest in believing:
On this album I’m extremely aware of where I’m at and nobody can tell me differently. I’m the big homie too. As much as I do remain humble and stay cordial, don’t think I don’t know. I know what’s going on out here, I’m 26 — I’m out here in the streets with the people.
On his album Nothing Was The Same Drake addressed this same issue on the song “Paris Morton Music II rapping “f*ck all that ‘happy to be here’ sh– that y’all want me on/ I’m the big homie, they still be tryna lil bro me, dog.” Another lyric addressed was his “Tuscan Leather” admission to “not even talkin’ to Nicki [Minaj]” in a recent interview with Los Angeles’ Power 106:
That song kind of picks up at an earlier point in my life. I had done something that I had to just reevaluate and fix. We’re good. We definitely talk. I saw her the other night. It was all love.
Drake also came in at #11 on Forbes’ 2013 Hip Hop Cash King list raking in $10.5 million over the past 12 months.
