Drake was not only at the top of hip hop. He’s cut off, weaponizing his addiction to work, success, progress… and porn.
The Canadian rap star appeared to give Howard Stern a little more than he bargained for when he and 21 Savage sat down for a chat with the SiriusXM jock. In an excerpt posted on Drizzy’s Instagram, it back-and-forth covers love, life and adult movies. As it turns out, though, the real-looking interview was part of a series of deepfake headfakes the duo released on Thursday (November 2) to promote their delayed joint album, Her loss.
The fake spree also included a fake Vogue magazine cover and a fake NPR Small desk concert.
What type of online action does Drake use? “Top, the highest tier of top donors,” he explains in the clip, which appeared to be resurrected from an earlier Stern interview. “That’s what I tune into consistently on a daily basis. They’re like real superstars,” he adds, stifling a giggle along with his fellow guest.
Although he is now a father and shares a son Adonis Graham with French artist Sophie Brussaux, Drake has not settled down.
Could he put a ring on it one day? “I’m sure I could, you know,” he tells Stern. “I think when this is all said and done for us, that addiction to work and success and forward motion is over, I feel like we’re all going to need something real. Hopefully it’s not too late. “
At 36, Drake isn’t exactly over the hill. And with 11 No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200 chart, most recently with Junes Honestly, never mindwhich puts Drake in a club of just five members to land more than 10 No. 1 albums on the chart, he’s sure to be a catch for some fine person.
Currently, he admits, he usually dates four or five women. “I don’t know, hopefully I’ll find someone,” he continues. “The biggest thing is that I need to be inspired.”
Drake and 21 Savage are much more than talk show guests. The pair are frequent collaborators and have teamed up Her lossa joint album release set for drop Friday (November 4). The set was delayed by several weeks when producer Noah “40” Shebib contracted COVID.
Previously, the pair collaborated on “Knife Talk” from Drizzy’s 2021 effort Certified Lover Boy“Mr. Right Now” from 21 Savage’s Savage Mode II collaborative album with Metro Boomin in 2020, Drake’s independent release “Sneakin'” in 2016, and more.
