Drake talks lyricism, working with Stevie Wonder, his favourite Lil Wayne verse [Video]

Drake sat down with Vevo to talk about the release of his sophomore album Take Care which drops next week. Vevo have dropped a series of short interview clips, where he discusses how lyricism has changed in Hip-Hop, working with Stevie Wonder on one of the album's (many) standouts "Doing It Wrong", and the Lil' Wayne verse that made him re-evaluate himself as a rapper. Say what you like about Drizzy, he's always good value in interviews.

Here he is talking about how just being able to rap well is no longer enough.

Here he talks about Stevie Wonder's involvement on the album, and how he ended up on the track "Doing It Wrong".

Finally he discusses his favourite Lil' Wayne verse ever, Weezy's contribution to Mario's "Crying Out For Me" remix.

For those of you who don't remember the Mario joint in question, it dropped back in 2007 and did indeed feature a pretty memorable verse from Weezy. Wayne definitely channeled Andre 3000 on that one. Hear it for yourself.

"She say 'f*ck', I say 'who?', she say 'not you'..." etc.

Game - The R.E.D. Album | Album Review

Argue all you want as to who's the current leader of the New West revolution but at one stage (and maybe even today) Jayceon Taylor, better known as Game, hands down was the frontrunner for this crown. Possessing the lyricism of which even had die hard East Coast affiliates had to approve, Chuck Taylor's mix of controversy, raw delivery and formula for a big hit have kept his name buzzing since his much lauded Documentary album dropped in 2005. Whilst publicised beefs, label issues and more followed, most recently his legion of fans have been craving for his much delayed LP The R.E.D Album, which had been in the works for some years. Finally free of postponements and drama, Game’s fourth release hopes to reignite the hot streak with which he once ran and dispel any concerns that his previous hype was unwarranted.
