(AllHipHop News) As the release date of Drake’s upcoming album Nothing Was The Same approaches, more details about the project start to become public. The latest revelation is that the Young Money star will feature his father on the bonus cut “Heat of the Moment.”
“I’m living my dad’s dream. My dad wanted to be a famous singer,” said Drake in outtakes from a recent interview with XXL. “There have been other interviews where I was asked about my dad and I didn’t want to talk about it. And there were records where I didn’t paint my dad as the greatest guy. At the end of the day, my dad knows I love him and that he’s a great friend of mine.”
It is still unclear if Drake’s father, Dennis Graham, will be singing on the record or if his voice will appear as a sample like on the Drake’s previous song “Jodeci Freestyle” featuring J. Cole.
In the Q&A, Drake also discusses his belief that his current single “Hold On, We’re Going Home” maybe the “biggest and best” song of his career and how Nothing Was The Same’s “Tuscan Leather” is his most confident intro to date.
“I have a bar in there where I say, ‘I’m tired of hearing who you checking for/Now just give it time, we’ll see who’s around a decade from now.’ I guess just being here now for four or five years now, this run to me is crazy,” said Drake. “Then I’m curious to see who’s next? Who’s next to have a real run? I don’t know if anyone has emerged and had a real run after me yet.”
Drake’s Nothing Was The Same is set to hit stores September 24th.
