Drake says he regrets airing out his exes in his music in the past.
“I hate hearing that sh-t,” Drizzy said of his track “Weston Road Flows.” “I heard it the other night. I think that and some times when I’ve said girls’ names in songs, maybe those are the two things that I look back on and I’m like, ‘Maybe I coulda done without, like, sh-tting on people for age or disrupting somebody’s life.'”
He continued: “The lyrics are never with ill intent, but I had somebody tell me one time, ‘You know, it’s not necessarily what you’re saying about me, it’s the fact that you said it.'”
Drake added, “Just in the sense like, ‘You don’t know what it does to me.’ You don’t know who my boyfriend is at the time or you don’t know what my family knows or doesn’t know. And if you express any form of discontent for me and call me by name in a song, then all of a sudden I’m left to pick up the pieces of my own life that I’ve tried to build up for myself.’ So I’ve tried my best to stop doing that. But I like to be honest in music too, so that one’s a push and pull.”
Drake also shared that he is considering retiring from music altogether.
