During an interview with Lil Yachty, he stated the thought.
Drake is feeling bad about mentioning the women he’s dated in his music, especially after one of them made him consider how those mentions have affected them.
The Toronto MC spoke about retiring from releasing music during an interview with Moody Conversations, but the topic quickly changed to his 2016 song “Weston Road Flows,” in which he predicted his retirement at the age of 35.
Drizzy stated, “I hate hearing that s**t, “I just heard it the other night. I think that and sometimes when I’ve said girls’ names in songs, maybe those are the two things that I look back on and I’m like, ‘Maybe I coulda done without, like, s*****g on people for age or disrupting somebody’s life.’”
He continued: “The lyrics are never with ill intent, but I had somebody tell me one time, ‘You know, it’s not necessarily what you’re saying about me, it’s the fact that you said it.’”
Drake has previously made suggestions about the potential end of his rapping career. He spoke on a Queen Radio show in August of last year and stated that he wasn’t yet prepared to give it up.
Drizzy said, “I’m not at that point where I even consider that being an option.” He also said, “One of the best feelings I have in my life is completing a song or project. And by the way, those things are painful as well. A lot of nerves, a lot of confidence wavering.”
“But I feel like I’m reaching a new level of fun,” he added. “I’ve reached a new level of comfortability where I want to try things. Like this last album, I put out something I wanted to do to challenge myself.”
