Drake Sets His Sights On Hollywood: “I Want To Do Movies”


With the underdog appeal of a J. Cole and the regality of a Beyonce Drake now finds himself reaping the rewards for building a brand soaked in carefully-calculated coolness.

It’s easy to forget that the chart-rocking rapper actually started is journey as an actor, fronting storylines written for the character Jimmy Brooks in ‘Degrassi: The Next Generation.’

This year, he plans to reunite with his first craft by making a beeline for the big screen.

Details below…

The ‘Hotline Bling’ rapper caught up with ‘W Art’ for an interview where he revealed that he is determined to find glory in Hollywood.

He explained:

The art at Sotheby’s moved me like a song would. I saw music in those paintings. I now try to treat each single as a piece of art. I try to attach the sound that I’m making to an image in my mind.

That wasn’t all. For, he also shared his thoughts on ‘Cold Shoulder’ chanteuse Adele.

He had this to say about her:

I love pressure! I’m always thinking, How do I top what I’ve done? How do I make this thing stronger? I ask myself, ‘Why does Adele’s album go diamond, and how do I do that? How do I create art that makes minds stretch further?’ I want to give many, many people many, many moments before I’m gone. That’s truly the art of what I do. It’s the only goal.

What do you think of Drizzy’s plans?

    Adele is actually talented, her voice crosses over barriers and touches peoples soul.

    Drake is a soft-as_s pop rapper who’s songs mean nothing to the public at large other than they sound good in the club and car while driving around.

    Drake and Adele — should never be mentioned in the same sentence.

      Took the word from my mouth. He’s no Eminem or Tupac or Biggie. He will never do diamond, he’ll not even 5x plat for an album. He appeals to people who always want to turn up

      • TY October 16, 2015

        He is marketable being Mr. softie light skin. White people like his “clean cut” image.

        He’s just the right mix of pop and rnb and rap;

        But he will NEVER go down in history like Biggie or Tupac — because he does not make a statement.

        I’m sure these are white twinks talking.

  2. What now October 16, 2015

    Cute but he’s going 2 have 2 wait 2 do movies when his music career starts decline. Doing it 2 early will f*** him up. Also, Adele is Adele. No 1 else is going to get a diamond album @ this time but her. That’s just the way it iz.

    his music is not BAD, BUT as of now, he has not been putting forth any effort to make long last music than hit singles for the moment. the 1st 3 albums were ok, and had some substance and classic 2000s, 2010s hits, but this mixtape, was fun, but was not anything i would put down in the history books. he wants to sell like adele and make music like future…where they do that at doe?!

  4. Lil Kim thee ONLY QB October 16, 2015

    Male rappers stay winning with little to no effort but the females struggling. Angel Haze or Tink is nowhere to be found on the charts. Nicki isn’t selling shtt even tho she obviously put tons off effort into her album. It’s a shame how rea and authentic music isn’t selling if you’re a black female. Besides that thief w***** Beyoncé.

    • Shawn October 16, 2015

      Lol why hate on Beyoncé success cause others are not selling ? Sounds like a lil Kim fan

      • Lil Kim thee ONLY QB October 16, 2015

        Girl who do you think you are speaking to me? Beyonce is a thief. She could never be the Queen of the hive.

  5. BeyKnowlesBest October 16, 2015

    He need to take H**-Nicka with him since her music career is lagging
