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.
