The best week of interviews in hip hop concludes with Drake's three-part talk with Elliott Wilson and his CRWN series, presented by MySpace. Quotables were released earlier in the week, and today, you can watch all three parts here.
Pt. 1 talks about NWTS, Kendrick Lamar's "Control" verse, looking up to Kanye West, and looking ahead as a singer.
Pt. 2 talks about relationships: not with the ladies, but the working relationship with Jay Z and his family relationship. Drizzy also discusses the OVO sound.
Pt. 3 is a fan Q&A as Drake talks about who else he has left to collaborate with and why he discounts Twitter.
Myspace has some cool footage behind the scenes at Chance the Rapper's first show in NYC at SOB's. The camera crew also briefly interviewed Chance on his rapid rise to fame and shock and awe at his sudden popularity. As usual, Chance seems grounded and cool as ever, a humble demeanor that we have come to expect from this guy. Also note a brief cameo by A$AP Yams. Always cool to see local artists making it big, and Chance is certainly doing that.
Here's MySpace's trendy way to announce its return — a commercial of a wide range of well-known musicians having fun! That's why you see Chicago's Chance The Rapper reppin' in the thumbnail on the homepage, as he is joined by the likes of Pharrell, Mac Miller, Riff Raff, Ciara, Hit-Boy, Schoolboy Q, and more. Fun commercial that represents the brand's new essence. Let's see if it carries over to return the social platform to a level where it once was. MySpace.com — I'll be with you in checking it out.
