Kanye West Talks About How Drake Inspires Him

By HHL Editors

Drake's surprise mixtape 'If You're Reading This, It's Too Late,' did numbers that nobody in Hip Hop has touched in well over a year.

Kayne West, who has his own album to sell any day now, is well aware of Drizzy's success. In fact, he told Clique TV that he was "sitting around and getting fat" until Drake's takeover of the game made him stand up and take notice. He called Drake his "greatest sparring partner" and explained that he views him as a competitor (and his only real competition), rather than a rival.

"I think healthy competition is better than rivalry, because I think rivalry becomes a cancer," Ye revealed. "It becomes like termites in your house, but I feel like healthy competition is something where you appreciate how hard this one person goes. Like you know, I think that Michael [Jackson] needed Prince. Everybody needs somebody to kick their ass a little bit."
Of course it wouldn't be 'Ye talking if he didn't compare himself to a legend. In addition to likening himself to Michael Jackson, West dropped a Michael Jordan comp a little earlier in the interviewer, which you can watch below.
