Drake is a superstar—the only guy who could dethrone Taylor Swift on the charts with a mixtape. In a rare interview, he spoke with The FADER.

Coming up in Toronto, people told Drake to move to New York if he was serious about making it. Instead, he stayed where he was and made history by proving that if you’re a truly multi-layered artist, you can make it from anywhere. “Do it the way I did it," he says in the above Obey Your Thirst documentary. "Do it from where you’re at. If you have the music, that's all it takes."

Now, at the top of his game, Drake says he competes not with established legends or other top-sellers, but with the countless kids itching to take his spot.

Now that hip-hop's playing field is more open than ever before, Drake knows

there are countless kids itching to take his spot. Those up-and-comers are now his competition, not any established rapper. “That’s how I try to keep pushing this forward,” he says. “Just to let that kid know that I’m not done yet.” Watch the full documentary above, and stay tuned for three more by Sprite and The FADER, sharing the stories of Nas, Vince Staples, and Isaiah Rashad.

I wonder how J Cole, Big Sean, and Kendrick take his comments about not competing with them. Yes Drizzy you're the best but don't get too comfortable. J cole is coming for your spot boy.

im pretty sure its safe to say drake is the most worthy artist to go down as an all time great, the type of artist that will have all his hits played 15 years later like jayz tupac and biggie and trust me, hes no where near finished

really would have preferred an actual sit down, long form, conversation rather than a producer advertisement for multiple corporations including drake. also, he's competing with kids dreaming in their living room? big man!
