The Masked Gorilla is all about the youth in hip hop, while we poke fun at the older rappers. Drake is hands down the biggest star in new school rap, arguably rap in general. At only 25 years old he's thinking with a TMG mentality however and contemplating an early retirement.
In a recent interview with i-D Magazine Drake expressed that he’s unsure about rapping into his mid-to-late 30s.
“I personally think that when I find that person and when it is established we are going to enter a serious relationship–I mean I don’t even know if I’ll still be making rap music,” said Drizzy. “I don’t know how long I necessarily want to make rap music for."
“You know, there are artists who are 35 and up that still make rap and that still works for them,” Drake continued. “I don’t know if I want to be that guy. A lot of my music is about being young and figuring it all out. I don’t know if I can still make my brand of music when I am up there. Maybe I’ll be just acting or whatever it is. I plan to make as much music as I can until a story from Drake doesn’t impact you as it used to.”
It's looks like Drake still has a few years left in him either way, but only time will tell if his mentality changes as he ages.
