Drake ‘Humbled’ By Success; Cash Money CEO ‘Proud’

(AllHipHop News) Toronto rap star Drake recently sat down with AllHipHop.com to discuss a number of matters, including the success of his debut album Thank Me Later, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart this week. The rapper moved 446,680 units during his opening week, giving him the third biggest opening week of the year, behind Lady Antebellum’s Need You Now (481,000) and Sade’s Soldier of Love (502,000). “First of all, I’m humbled by everything. It hasn’t really set in. It hasn’t really registered,” Drake told AllHipHop.com. “You know, we don’t do too much celebrating, but I’m just thinking about the next win…the next win. You know, like Kobe Bryant says. I don’t know what a ring feels like. Until I get the ring, I’m never satisfied.”The 14-track album features guest appearances from Alicia Keys, Jay-Z, Young Jeezy, Cash  Money Records label mate Lil Wayne and others. “We are extremely proud of Drake,” added Ronald “Slim” Williams, Co-CEO of Cash Money Records Group. “Drake is a talented individual and a humble person with a tireless work ethic and has truly given his all with Thank Me Later. The Young Money/Cash Money family is proud to release this album and hopes that the fans will enjoy it for years to come.” Last night (June 23rd), MTV2 aired an exclusive one-hour documentary on the rapper, titled Drake: Better Than Good Enough. The documentary gives fans a glimpse into the rapper’s life as he deals with fame and the work that went into creating and promoting Thank Me Later. According to Drake, he is happy with the results of Thank Me Later, but aims to do better with his sophomore album. “I’m very humbled, very honored by the response of what we’ve done thus far, but – in my mind – we could do a lot better. I’m just working towards that,” Drake told AllHipHop.com.
