Drake Says He’s Not Soft, Just Real Honest With His Feelings

Every since Drake arrived on the hip-hop scene, his music has been scrutinized by discerning critics. While the Young Money superstar is known for spitting tough rhymes, it’s his rap-singing on melodramatic songs like ‘Marvin’s Room’ and ‘Take Care,’ they have naysayers calling him “soft.”

In a candid interview with U.K. publication the Guardian, Drake addresses the criticisms people have of him catering to a female fan base with his emotional rap ballads. “There are people who really hate me and everything I stand for, like, ‘He’s so soft,’” he says. “But I’m not soft. I’m just not one of those people who’s closed off emotionally. I went through too much with my father and my mother, watching her go through her shit and be hurt … I’ve seen too many people cry. Plus, I’ve had too many girls to ever feel uncomfortable about the man that I am.”

Well, excuse us Mr. Drake.

Elsewhere in the interview, the Toronto rapper admitted to indulging in some of the wayward temptations that comes with being a high-profiled celebrity. “Have I sipped codeine before?” he asks. “Yeah, of course. Have I smoked weed? Yes. Do I drink wine? Yes. But do I do it excessively? No. I’m not a reckless guy. I do it all within moderation.”

Oh yeah? Tell that to the folks in Oklahoma, Okla., Drake. Apparently, they have a different story.

However, Drake insists you won’t see him crash and burn from excess partying anytime soon. “Nah, that’s not me,” he states. “I care too much about what I have. I’m not going to throw it away for that.”
