Drake is currently in the middle of the longest reign of being the hottest rapper in the world … ever. Since 2009, the “6 God” has been either a major talking point in hip-hop or *the* main talking point. Album sales and hits prove it. But, does he fear maybe falling off one day?
LeBron James has had a similar stretch in his own field and the two discussed just that. In a clip for the upcoming episode of James’ HBO series The Shop which airs on Friday, he and Drake discuss career concerns and eventually, knowing when to hang it up.
“I think maybe one of my biggest concerns in my career is just to figure out how to exit gracefully,” Drake says in the secluded barbershop. “I’ve watched people overstay their welcome, and I just don’t ever want to be that guy that’s addicted to the feeling of victory…Addicted to the emotion of people digesting something that they love, and get to the point I’m just feeding them something and they’re just like ‘Yeah…'”
“You can’t have motherf****s around you who can’t keep it honest with you and keep it real with you,” James says in regards to Drake statement. “You need to have someone tell you ‘Yo, either accept the lesser role, or you gotta tank.”
