Coming up in Toronto, people told Drake to move to New York if he was serious about making it. Instead, he stayed where he was and made history by proving that if you’re a truly multi-layered artist, you can make it from anywhere. “Do it the way I did it,” he says in the above Obey Your Thirst documentary. “Do it from where you’re at. If you have the music, that’s all it takes.” Now, at the top of his game, Drake says he competes not with established legends or other top-sellers, but with the countless kids itching to take his spot.

On his hometown:
“Toronto is the reason I do this. All I did was find a way to make people proud of our city. Artists from our city – their whole objective was to get out. So I just had to flip that way of thinking,” he says. “All these guys that are like, you gotta go to new york now to make it happen. No you don’t. That’s dead now. Do it the way the Weeknd did it, do the way PartyNextDoor did it, do it they way I did it. Do it where you’re at. If you have the music, that’s all it takes.”
