Drake is looking all dapper in a black suit on the cover of the April issue of GQ magazine. In the cover story, Drake expresses his feelings about the new generation of rappers, where he labeled it as “just being young and fly,” finding influences for his songwriting and past promiscuity. Drake also said that he was “mischievous, but calculated.” Below are some excerpts:

On the new generation of rappers…
“Rap now is just being young and fly and having your shit together. The mood of rap has changed.”

On finding influences for his songwriting…
“I’m trying to find the same feelings that I had for women when I had very little going on, which is tough. When I was in my mom’s house, I had nowhere to go, no real obligations. My girlfriend at the time, if she was mad at me, my day was all fucked-up. I didn’t have anything else. And that made for some of the best music, I think, to date. Records where I felt small. …It’s really difficult for me to find something that makes me feel small.”

On past promiscuity…
“There’s just a time where it was like, just getting pussy. Where I was in that sort of ‘I’m young, I’m going to disconnect from my emotions and just do what everyone else tells me I should do and just a be a rapper and have my fun.’ And for me as a person, it just doesn’t work. The seconds after a man reaches climax, that’s the realest moment of your life. If I don’t want you next to me in that fifteen, twenty seconds, then there’s something wrong.”

On his bad boy persona…
“I’m mischievous, but I’m calculated.”
