Drake Gets Dapper for GQ's Style Bible

Drake Gets Dapper for GQ's Style Bible

Drake may have gotten "rich off a mixtape," but the self-proclaimed underground king's mainstream popularity is undeniable. Several mixtapes, two platinum studio albums, and a record-breaking 12 number one singles on Billboard's Rap Songs chart have solidified his place as a mega star. It's no wonder GQ magazine selected the Young Money rapper to grace one of three April covers for their first-ever style bible issue.

The cover, which features Drake in a perfectly tapered suit flashing his bright smile, is enough to charm anyone. Inside the issue, the Canadian rapper gives an intimate glimpse of his life and career, discussing everything from his relationship with his father to the current state of hip-hop. Much less about street credibility, "rap now is just being young and fly and having your shit together," Drake told GQ. "The mood of rap has changed."

But music isn't the only thing on Drake's mind. "I'm trying to find the same feelings that I had for women when I had very little going on, which is tough," he said. While he admits there was a time when he was "just getting pu**y," female fans will be happy to know that the bachelor is looking for more than sex. "And for me as a person, it just doesn't work. I just need something else."
