"It's Not Like I'm On Records Crying": Drake Covers VIBE, Talks Petty Rap Beef

How He Feels About People In Rap Coming After Him:

As much of a show as it is for people and sometimes what makes it exciting, for us it's just unnecessary pressure and stress. That s**t's not fun. It's not fun to be in a beef with somebody. If you do win the war of words, then what? Then where does it go? The person starts feeling self-conscious, and then we start getting into some whole other s**t. I try and avoid s**t like that for the sake of my career.

On Kendrick Lamar And The "Control" Record:

I never once felt the need to respond to that record. The sentiment he was putting forth is what he should have. Of course you wanna be the best...Mind you, I never once said he's a bad guy [or] I don't like him. I think he's a f**king genius in his own right, but I also stood my ground as I should. And with that came another step, which then I have to realize I'm being baited and I'm not gonna fall. Jordan doesn't have to play pickup to prove that he could play ball, no offense. But I'm not gonna give you the chance to shake me necessarily, 'cause I feel great. There's no real issue. It's tough because the people wanna see us tear each other down; I don't wanna give them that. There's no point. I have no ill feelings toward that guy. It's just like, it's there for me if I wanna fall for it. I'm just too smart for that. Hopefully it's the last time I gotta talk about this, 'cause every time I open my mouth up about it, they take this piece and take this piece. And he's hungry, so he's going to do what he has to do like the BET [cypher]. But again, it's not enough for me to go. We haven't seen each other [since the BET cypher] but I'm sure we'll see each other and it'll be cool. And if it's not, then I guess that's how our story unfolds.
