Drake provides more updates on More Life.
“I’m excited because I’m about like a week-and-a-half [to] two weeks away from finishing this project I’m working on called More Life,” he said. “So you know what that means, right? All that means is, I get to drop a new project, and at some point, I get to come back and be with my people in Leeds one more motherfuckin’ time.”
Last month, Drake told John Calipari’s “Cal Cast” that More Life will be a lot like a mixtape with a twist. “It’s something I’m doing in conjunction with Apple,” he said. “Usually, in between albums, artists would do a mixtape but I’m doing a playlist with Apple. It’s sort of the same concept. It’s not an album but it is a body of work I’m creating, just to bridge the gap between my major releases, to keep people excited, give people new music, let people know I’m still hungry.”
Drake is currently on “The Boy Meets World Tour” overseas, where he’s made headlines by dissing Donald Trump, teasing a Young Money reunion, offering refunds, and previewing new music. However, he’s also been criticized for asking a woman to take off a scarf, which some believed was a hijab. The Toronto rapper denied this in a statement on Instagram.
“I make a point every night to end my shows on tones of unity and love so, to find out that I am being utilized in a fake media story about me disrespecting Muslims is devastating to me,” he wrote. “At my show in the 02 in London I was talking to 4 women one of whom was wearing a jacket and a winter scarf, I made a comment about taking off the scarf because I enjoy friendly banter with the fans. I am well aware of what a hijab is and I would never make a disrespectful comment like that in my life towards someone who is wearing one. I am proud that my closest friends and fans come from all different religions and races, perhaps whoever made up this story should spend more time learning about other cultures and less time trying to divide us.”
In other news, Drizzy also recently shared a photo of himself with former President Barack Obama and his daughter Malia Obama in the White House’s Oval Office. “Got off stage and saw this in my email,” he captioned the previously unseen flick. “Hope you are somewhere at peace with the family. We miss ya g.”
