It’s no secret that Drake likes to hop on the sound or song of the moment — whether it’s his or not.
In an interview with 1Xtra’s Rap Show, Drake got candid about switching up his accent from time to time and being called a culture vulture.
He confirmed the speculation, stating, “I felt this pressure to be American, sound American” at the start of his career. Now that he’s put Toronto on the map, Drake said he’s more comfortable speaking in his natural accent.
He also addressed those who have called him a “culture vulture” because he’s shown support for up-and-coming artists overseas.
“‘Oh that’s some culture vulture..’, I don’t know what that means,” he said. “I’ll never understand how supporting somebody’s song or giving someone a song isn’t admirable. I had to get that off my chest.”
