Rap-Up TV: Boi-1da Talks Evolution of Drake on ‘Take Care’

Boi-1da has been in the studio with Drake finishing his sophomore album Take Care, due October 24. The hitmaker behind “Best I Ever Had” and “Forever” hit the carpet with his family at the ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards before being honored as Songwriter of the Year.

While he remained tight lipped about details surrounding the highly-anticipated project, he did describe how the Young Money star has evolved as an artist. “He was already extraordinary. I just think he’s grown as a lyricist and become a better rapper, although he was a great rapper before,” the Canadian producer told Rap-Up TV. “Everything just sounds better. He’s evolved as an artist.”

He also shared what it’s been like to see his friend go from grinding in their rat-infested studio to the top of the charts.

    Boi-1da is gonna throw some fire onto this record, but i do hope that drake doesn’t do so many slow songs, i do love the slower songs on thank me later but i want to her drake just go in and smash it, doing something like lil wayne’s a milli or 6 foot 7 foot were he raps almost all the way through.

    I HOPE Take Care isn’t like Dreams Money can Buy, Marvin’s Room, or Trust Issues or it would just sound like all his other shit. Looking forward though…

    Iam over drake now. His mixtapes were better then his late album. Plus, i loved his collobs with other artists on their singles. He annoys me now. Iam not a Hater, iam just disappointed with the quality of music. When he blow up, i was one of the people who was with him.
    Oh well, on to next on :)
