The newly signed Young Money rapper said he will model the upcoming album based from his popular So Far Gone mixtape.

"I just gotta get this tour knocked out," Drake explained in an interview. "I'm working on it right now though, I was actually just in the studio with Pharrell. It's basically a 'laxed process for us and basically So Far Gone worked so lets just try to do it again, lets act as if we were making a second disc for So Far Gone. Or picking up on the places that I feel So Far Gone missed out on a couple things, taking away things people liked but didn't respond to as much as they did say like a 'Best I Ever Had,' 'Uptown,' the joint with Lloyd. There were certain things on that record I unanimously know people loved, there are things people didn't necessarily understand. So I'm just basically trying to find the strongest point to So Far Gone and make an album based off that." (MTV)

He recently spoke on his record deal with Lil Wayne's company and importance of being an independent artist.

"I definitely want to clear this up, I didn't sign to Universal," he promised in an interview. "I'm actually signed to...a lot of people were telling me, 'Oh, you should do it independent.' I'm actually 100 percent independent. I signed to Cortez Bryant and G. Roberson, my managers, so I signed a joint venture between Aspire Music Group, which is them, and Young Money. So the only part that Universal plays is P&D [pressing and distribution]. I'm not a Universal artist. I'm signed to myself...Somebody told me they saw my deal the other day and they said it was one of the worst record deals in history [for] the label. That's a good thing for me. I own everything, I have 100 percent creative control, I own all my masters, everything. I'm blessed to be in that situation. If we sell some records, I think we'll just add to the historic pace that this has been going at." (Complex)

But when Drake was asked about that horrid BET Awards perforance (if u dare click here to watch LOL) this is what he said:
"Yeah, it was just timed very poorly and it definitely wasn’t planned like that, but with that being said, it is what is," said Drake. "I believe in Wayne and myself and it’s nothing we can’t bounce back from. To anyone who was offended, my personal apologies, it wasn’t intended to offend anybody."
