New Yorkers like to think their city is the center of the world.
Drake acknowledges that before he came along most folks in Toronto would agree. But Drake dismissed that mindset, and now he believes New York's days as a cultural gatekeeper are over.
"All I did was find a way to make people proud of our city," Drake says in the new Obey Your Thirst documentary. "The artists from our city, their whole objective was to get out. So I just had to flip that way of thinking." "All these guys that are like, 'You gotta go to New York and make it happen,' no you don't, man," he continued. "That's dead now. Do it the way The Weeknd did it. Do it the way PARTYNEXTDOOR did it. Do it the way I did it. Do it from where you're at."Check out the whole mini-doc below.
