-Says driving around helped his writing process but now he's deprived of that because he's driven to the studio/club/wherever by drivers & security. Boo fucking hoo.
-Views From The 6
has no release date as of yet.
-Has recorded most of it in Toronto because his friends aren't at the age where they can follow him all over the world anymore. Particularly 40.
-"I know everything. I know everything that’s being said about you. I know everything that’s being said about me. I’m very in tune with this life."
-Confirms that What A Time To Be Alive
was recorded in 6 days.
-He envied Wiz Khalifa's Black & Yellow
because the world was singing about Pittsburg. Know Yourself
his way of making a song that belonged to Toronto.
-Says he's into dancehall inspired beats rn. This excites me.
-He prefers the feeling that finding the right words, cadence and melodies that fit gives him over sex and partying.
-Says when he takes a song and makes it his own (Sweeterman Remix, Tuesday, Versace), he's channeling his mom because she used to take his essays and add paragraphs and sentences to it to make it better. So when he hears songs he likes, he wants to take a jab at making it his own.

the same night the 10 Bands
reference track was released.
-“Given the circumstances, it felt right to just remind people what it is that I do, in case your opinions were wavering at any point.”
-Was like WTF when Meek didn't respond right after he dropped Charged Up
. He was almost offended at the lack of preparation and strategy from Meek's team.
-“I need, sometimes, individuals to spark an idea so that I can take off running. I don’t mind that. And those recordings—they are what they are. And you can use your own judgment on what they mean to you.”
-“If I have to be the vessel for this conversation [about rappers not writing their rhymes] to be brought up—you know, God forbid we start talking about writing and references and who takes what from where—I’m OK with it being me. It’s just, music at times can be a collaborative process, you know? Who came up with this, who came up with that—for me, it’s like, I know that it takes me to execute every single thing that I’ve done up until this point. And I’m not ashamed.”
-Metro Boomin, Drake and Future would have dance offs in the studio to Digital Dash
