Drake Apologizes to Phonte

blame it on Shake November 10, 2011

The promo run continues for Drake as the release date for Take Care is just around the corner. In a recent interview with The Village Voice, Drake talks about working with Stevie Wonder, his thoughts on A$AP Rocky and Kendrick Lamar (who are joining him on the Club Paradise Tour), the battle scene (noting some of his favorites) and even admits to dropping the ball when it came to giving a verse to Phonte for Charity Starts At Home (which is one of my favorite albums of the year, hands down).

With me and Tay, I kinda dropped the ball on a feature he needed me to do, just being 100% honest. I really wanted to do a record with him, and we actually did do a record for my album, and then something happened with the producer and the beat, and it started getting funny so I had to scrap the record. And then he was like, “Well, can you do this feature for me,” and at the time I was trying to find my sound and trying to figure out what this album was going to be about, and I kind of let it slip through the cracks. That was my fault, and I do apologize to Phonte for that. But I still want to make it happen; I talked to 9th Wonder about trying to make it happen, we’ll get it eventually. He knows he’s one of the biggest influences on my career.
