Had enough of Futche yet? Well, neither is the rest of the world. Fresh from releasing a joint project with Drake – you may have heard it, What A Time To Be Alive – which is poised to become his first platinum album ever (we’re not talking singles), Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn is now on the cover of the latest issue of XXL Magazine.
In the article, Strugs talks his shaky relationship with Ciara, unwillingly being stuck in between the Drake-Meek rift despite being friends with both parties, and more. Some choice quotes:
(On splitting parenting) “I want to be able to judge him for myself. I want to judge the nannies that’s around my child. I don’t want to pay for a nanny that I never met, that I never got a chance to interview. That’s not the life I want for my child. I want to be involved 100 percent in all decisions made. This my flesh and blood. If I don’t want him to do something, there’s supposed to [be a] compromise or we supposed to talk about it. You not supposed to just go behind my back and do it. This is my son, too.”
(On Drake & Meek) “On some real shit, I love Meek. And the Drake situation, I feel like genuinely we’ve been building a great relationship over these years. We got history together. We went on a few tours together so it was like, publicly, some things was said and it was took out of context. And even with the situation coming out, we put it all behind us, went on a sold out tour and we built from that and I feel like it’s genuine, it’s authentic and we built trust between each other. So with trust it’s just bringing us closer because in this industry, as you get bigger, I feel like you lose trust for everyone around you. You feel like the people you come in contact with, you can’t trust them. So I feel like it had to happen over years, that couldn’t happen over a few months.”
