Drake is featured on the cover of GQ’s April issue, all suited up, and inside the Young Money rapper opens up about his life in the fast lane (it ain’t easy being “25 sitting on 25 mil”), but behind-the-scenes Drizzy also kicked a new, revealing verse for the men’s mag. “A Little Favour” finds the Toronto native spitting about the excess of women and wealth that inevitably comes with his career, yet he admits that thanks to a small industry, he’s shared some of the same women with his boss Lil Wayne.
“Diamonds hang around my neck, the crib is all finished/No love for these bitches I said this year it’s all business/ It is a shame that a couple of ‘em are off limits/ No offense to my n—a, It’s just the industry’s small, we all lust for the same women,” he spits, going on to admit that he and Wayne have shared some of the same women. “You know the ones we saw before we came in it, I know we aint tripping. I know I got a couple things that Lil Wayne dipped in, ain’t ashamed to admit it.”
In his GQ cover story, Drake was just as candid, explaining that his relationships with the fairer sex have changed drastically since he became a household name.
“When I was in my mom’s housein my mom’s house, I had nowhere to go, no real obligations. My girlfriend at the time, if she was mad at me, my day was all f—ed up,” he said. “I didn’t have anything else. And that made for some of the best music, I think, to date. Records where I felt small. That feeling is hard to capture when you’re sitting out here in a space like this” he says.
These days, he’s probably lost count of the number of women he’s slept with. “I’m trying to find the same feelings that I had for women when I had very little going on,” he admits, “which is tough.”
