Drake On Why He Hates Social Media

blame it on Shake November 7, 2011

In the November issue of The Source (which includes 2DopeBoyz as #7 in their Power 30: Digital segment), Drake chops it up with Kim Osorio about his hatred for social media (Tumblr, Twitter, etc).

On Tumblr
I’m really scared for my generation, you know. The thing that scares me most is Tumblr. I hate what Tumblr has become. Because it like, it reminds me of those clique-y girls in high school that used to make fun of everyone else and define what was cool, but in five years, when you all graduate, that shit doesn’t matter. No one gives a fuck about that shit. Instead of kids going out and making their own moments, they’re just taking these images and living vicariously through other people’s moments. It just kills me. Then you’ll meet them and they’re just the biggest turkey in the world. They don’t actually embody any of those things. They just emulate. It’s scary man, simulation life that we’re living. It scares me.

On Twitter
I’ll tell you, my biggest thing was, I remember, it was on twitter. I remember the day my mom was getting surgery and someone came on Twitter and they were like, ‘Yo, Drake, I hope your mom dies.’ You don’t really mean that. Like, you know you’re going to see something bad. Out of 1000 compliments, it’s so crazy. It’s basically, like, when you used to sit there as a kid, and want to know what everyone is thinking. That’s your superpower. [Twitter is] knowing what everyone is thinking.

Man, I agree one thousand percent on that Tumblr remark. Kids these days have NO sense of originality w/ the blind leading the blind. Anyways, speaking of Twitter…. Drake used his account to address the recent leak of Take Care.

I am not sure if the album leaked. But if it did thank god it doesn’t happen a month early anymore. Listen, enjoy it, buy it if you like it…and take care until next time.
