Stefflon Don Treasures Advice Drake Gave Her
(AllHipHop News) Stefflon Don treasures a piece of advice given to her by superstar rapper Drake.
The British rapper, real name Stephanie Victoria Allen, signed a $1.7 million contract with Polydor in 2017, and has since scored a big hit with French Montana collaboration "Hurtin' Me," which peaked at No.7 in the British charts and recently released single "Ding-A-Ling" featuring Skepta.
And in an interview with Britain's ES magazine, she shared how she received encouragement from the *God's Plan" rapper on how to stay focused as an artist.
"I remember having a conversation with Drake just before I signed. He said, 'Make sure that whatever you do your opponent is scared of you,'" she shared. "That really stuck with me."
Explaining that while she respects Cardi B and Nicki Minaj, she doesn't limit her ambitions to being the best female rapper or the best U.K. rapper.
And when asked if she considered herself a feminist, the 26-year-old responded: "I bring a lot of female unity, first of all. See my videos. I always support anyone who I think is dope, female-wise. Whereas a lot of females are scared of other females.
"The most confident females in rap are often not that confident when they're not rapping and they don't want to mention anyone else. I'm not scared of that," she added.
Stefflon appears on British singer Raye's new single "Cigarette," which also features Mabel.
The trio appears together in a video performance for the track filmed at London's Kentish Town Forum venue.
