24 Reasons Drake's Interview At NYU Was The Best Thing Ever

It was funny. It was charming. And, yes, it was emotional.

Posted on

So it should come as no surprise that his interview with journalist Elliott Wilson at New York University was amazing. The conversation was the fifth installment of Wilson's #CRWN series, presented by Myspace. And it was bananas.

1. The room exploded.

Within a few hours of going on sale, tickets for the conversation sold out — that's over 800 attendees! The crowd was dressed to the nines and super stoked, with some kids lining up as early as 1 p.m. — a cool EIGHT HOURS before the interview. Many were hoping for a surprise performance, and though that didn't happen, they sure didn't leave disappointed.

3. Especially the second Drake walked onto the stage and everything became "Champagne Papi."

Disclaimer: He didn't actually enjoy the beverage.

4. Because he decided to give it to a mom.

The coolest mom ever, probably second only to Drake's mom.

5. LOOK AT HOW MUCH DRAKE LOVES MOMS.

What a gentleman. Swoon.

6. Oh, and then there was all the amazing stuff he said:

"I just wanna venture away from what everybody expects, and still give an enjoyable body of work"

Drake: inspiration factory.

8. "People may say about me, 'Oh man, everything's so emotional,' but if I didn't write about that, what the fuck else would I write about?"

Nothing, Drake. Nothing.

14. Which is probably why he's, like, super confident these days.

Drake loves & respects Kendrick and loves GKMC. He's saying he's just not worried about Kendrick. He considers Ye is only completion.

16. He even (sort of) called out the rap community:

No new friends, etc.

17. Honesty was the name of the game; just listen to the crowd's reaction when Drake asked Eliott Wilson if he remembers the Kendrick verse on "Control":

Spoiler: He doesn't, and neither does the crowd. And you know what? Drizzy's OK with that!

18. Because when Drake's good, he's the best. Just take it from his longtime producer, Noah "40" Shebib:

"I'm the songwriter of the year and I'm only working with one guy. I guess I'm doing something right!" I'd say so!

21. And this fun factoid:

the most notable part about #CRWN was @Drake informing us that the real @GhostfaceKillah acknowledges @BigGhostFASE's existence

22. Before launching into "Twitter isn't real, btw!"

He continued, "That's a terrible medium to exist in. You can indulge in it, but don't live your life by that code." Get off the internet!

24. But in all seriousness, just never forget Champagne Mami.
