Drake should be the happiest person right now, dropping his sophomore Take Care album in the morning and covering the December issue of complex, Well the shoot wasn’t what Drake had in mind, in fact he fired the photographer. Read what happened after the jump!
“Drake doesn’t want to keep shooting with this photographer. He’d rather get Hyghly Alleyne & Lamar Taylor—the same young Toronto dudes who shot the “Headlines” video—to finish the job. Never mind the fact that the first photographer is also a young cat from Toronto who’d been approved by Drake’s management and publicists. I’m not going to take that shit,” Drake says when I ask him later what went wrong at the shoot. “Nah man, I work too f-cking hard for that. So does everyone around me.” Drake doesn’t often yell, even when he’s riled up. When he wants to emphasize a point, he focuses his stare and slows his speech so it’s clear. “Not to hate,” he says, “and to whoever I snatched that opportunity from, I apologize. But this is about what we’re trying to build here.”
