Frank Ocean Red Carpet Interview @ GQ "Men of the Year" Party

Drake Speaks On People Calling Him Sensitive, Feeling Attacked, and Competition With Fellow Rappers

While Drake has been riding the success of his latest album release "Take Care," Drizzy still believes he has a lot more to do in the Hip-Hop game.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Drake speaks on his new album and everything else in his career.

Speaking on how he feels about people calling him sensitive:


WSJ: Has it surprised you how much importance people place on your "sensitivity"?

Drake: I don't know if people are getting more and more disconnected, and therefore I seem like the most emotional character in this whole scene. My favorite artists always documented emotion. Marvin Gaye and Al Green and Sade and Aaliyah. People poke fun, but I'm just not ashamed.

Drake later goes on to talk about feeling attacked by some:


WSJ: On the new album, what was the most technical challenge you faced in your rapping?

Drake: Consistently my challenge was using new cadences and new flows that no artists are using right now. I felt like I was under attack, with people claiming that I came up on their style or their moment.

Drake also talked about his competition with other rappers, even mentor Lil Wayne:


WSJ: In many ways, you owe your success to the help of Lil Wayne and other rappers. But as your stature grows, has there been friction with them as competitors?

Drake: Now more than ever. Initially the hands were all extended because it was like, "let's pull this young kid up and see what he does." It's different when people start viewing you at eye level. Yeah, I haven't heard from certain people in forever. Nobody wants to go for drinks anymore. But that's okay. That just lets me know that, without it being conflict, it's still war out here. Everyone's just trying to be the best.

Russell Simmons is doing what he can to contribute to the Occupy Wall Street movement.



In a recent interview with Billboard.biz, the business mogul says he's been in talks with artists who will be recording OWS inspired songs.



"There's a lot of music coming. I don't want to say who until they're dropping these bombs," he said. "These are artists I'm aware of that I pushed to do it, supported their efforts to do it, told them why it was important, briefed them on the demands of the protestors. There'll be a protest song that goes with Occupy Wall Street. I promise you that. Me and you, promise."



Simmons added that there is also an OWS concert also in the works.



"We are definitely discussing it. We're definitely working for permits. We're definitely looking to make a huge impact. We're actively working for permits. We'll have one in our hands soon."

Rihanna "We Found Love" Video Banned in France





The Supreme Audiovisual Council of France has banned Rihanna's music video for "We Found Love" from daytime television for being too explicit. They believe the clip could inspire "self destructive behavior."



The video, which shows the pop star smoking, shoplifting and engaging in a violent relationship with a Chris Brown look-a-like, model Dudley O'Shaughnessy can now only be shown after 10 PM.



It's the second video this year from the singer that has received some type of ban. Riri's clip for "S&M" was banned in 11 countries after it was deemed to be too raunchy.
