[Music News]: Drake Says He Turned To Drugs To Deal With Fame


YOLO: In a recent interview with UK’s The Guardian Drizzy admitted to using drugs in the past to handle the pressures of fame and success. Get the full story and see what he said below…

Drake has revealed that he turned to prescription pain medication and marijuana in the past to deal with his newfound fame.

The rapper came to prominence in 2010 with the release of hit single ‘Best I Ever Had’. He has gone on to collaborate with such artists as Rihanna, Kanye West, Florence + the Machine and Nicki Minaj.

In an interview with The Guardian, the 25-year-old discussed the pressures of success, saying: “You get artists in this position who go crazy and don’t know how to handle it. There are people who have killed themselves. There’s the overwhelming stress, how tired you are, the weight on your shoulders of going out there and giving 18,000 people entertainment… it’s a lot of pressure.”

Drake has admitted that his debut album Thank Me Later was a rushed effort, and he initially struggled to live up to its popularity. His latest album Take Care hit number one on the US Billboard Chart and number two on the UK Albums Chart.

Despite the admission that he has used drugs to cope, the singer insisted that his current habits are not excessive, saying: “Have I sipped codeine before? Yeah, of course. Have I smoked weed? Yes. Do I drink wine?
