One of my favorite people to listen to...if I ever use a ghostwriter...it will be this woman.

Unlearn

People often ask me the craziest part about becoming "famous" and I've never had an answer until yesterday.

"You'll spend half of your time defending yourself and the other half trying to stay sane resulting in you being forced to find time to be creative"

I often wonder in a time where new artists exist in a impersonal cyber world of instantaneous information, if we will ever have another rap legend that can manage to maintain the image that our idols had prior to this method of promotion. I am not suggesting that this person should be me, I am just urging a generation to understand that in order to have anyone of any significance in our lives that we can look up to there will be things that we must look past. There are people that buy sell and trade evil on a daily basis...when u believe in their brand is when they win.


"Even photoshop couldn't change me"
- Me



I also want people to know that I am only releasing this EP so that everyone involved in the project can hold a physical copy of the CD in their hands and see it in the store. And for anybody else who feels that So Far Gone marked a moment in time I just wanted to give you the option to have the disc. If you got it for free and want to keep it that way than by all means I urge you to. That was a gift from me to you...Thank Me Later.

Klaxon Howl F/W 09





The Toronto based label and retailer presents its fall 09 collection taking inspirations from the spirits and icons of the past. Men who toil and the clothes that protect them. Frontiersmen and prospectors, Soldiers and Sailors, Aviators and Highwaymen, American Indians and Cattlemen and the film idols that portrayed them.

Fantastic Man


Gert Jonkers and Jop van Bennekom are the creators of Fantastic Man, one of the most remarkable magazines of this era. It is an avant-garde throwback—a remarkably formal and philosophical men’s fashion magazine that positions itself above the commercial fray with a singular tone and elegant design.

Vaude-A-Villains


I've mentioned Matt Barnes before. He is a long time collaborator and has photographed the majority of the Drake images you have seen. He has now made the natural transition into directing. Vaude-A-Villains is his first short film which he wrote and directed. You can watch it here.

Complex Reportage: Tour Life



"Don't make me call my rounds"


Complex: How’s the knee holding up?

Drake: “The knee’s alright. Last night I had a bit of a scary moment. I saw somebody that had my mic and I walked backwards and I fell. But I got up and I had to go onstage right after.”

Complex: You tune down your stage show at all?

Drake: “No [Laughs]. That’s the scariest part.”

Read the rest here. This interview was done before the show where his knee gave out.

Cudi Complex Cover


Cudi happens to be wearing a Ransom jacket from the fall 09 collection. He also speaks on Drake in his interview.
People love to point out similarities between you and Drake—do you view him as competition?
Kid Cudi: I think it’s just that Drake and me are the most creative out of the new up-and-coming MCs. Me and Drake are here not because of anything other than two niggas that have their own flavor. I’m doing my shit, nobody else can do my shit. Nobody else can do Wale’s shit or Charles Hamilton’s shit. It’s like a bunch of Kool-Aid stands. It just matters whose flavor you like the most.
It seems like a lay-up for you and Drake to work together.
Kid Cudi: We’ll come together eventually, but I’m not trying to force this because there’s hype around us both. I want to work with Drake, yeah, but right now I don’t want to work with anyone who’s in the same creative realm as me. I’m still creating my own shit.
Has he reached out to work with you?
Kid Cudi: Drake had been wanting to do an official “Day ’N’ Nite” remix early on. He was one of my earliest supporters; that’s why I fuck with Drake on another level than just being a new artist. His homeboy Oliver used to hit me up when I’d go to Toronto, like, “Yo, you gotta fuck with Drake.” Imagine if I would’ve let Drake remix “Day ’N’ Nite” when he wanted to back in ’07. That shit would’ve fizzled out; no one would’ve cared. Luckily we let it live and it worked out. We’re changing things on accident. That’s how I know this is my destiny.

Angels and Demons

This bottle of Opus One is low but my spirits are high my friends. I am about 2 hours away from Toronto, CA where I will be spending the next chunk of time recovering from a surgery that I now must have. I embarked on this tour with a torn ACL, MCL, and LCL and due to the events that happened the other night lord only knows what other damage I have done. On the bright side I will begin the reflecting and soul searching that its going to take to make this album and my outfit on the night I fell was crack. I will forever push myself beyond the limits despite advice and recommendations given because even with this new found success I am still the kid who wanted this more than anything in the world. Its funny when I read comments from previous fans who have lost interest because of the radio play and exposure I have. I just want to assure anyone reading that nothing has changed on my end. I refuse to get comfortable, I refuse to fall in line and follow anyone elses formulas. I still work as if So Far Gone had never dropped and I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to gain entry to this game.

“Missing someone gets easier everyday. Because, even though it is one day further from the last time you saw each other, it is one day closer to the next time you will”

See you soon.
