Drake Wants To Get Back Into Acting
Drake plans on returning to acting once he releases his ‘More Life’ project later this year.
The ‘One Dance’ rapper starred in Canada’s popular television series ‘Degrassi: The Next Generation’ as basketball player Jimmy Brooks from 2001 to 2009 – before he became an global hip-hop superstar – and was forced to leave the show because bosses found out he had been working on music, but he has now expressed his desire to go back to his old passion.
The 30-year-old musician – who is reportedly dating Jennifer Lopez – plans on furthering his career as an actor after he releases his ‘More Life’ project, which is slated for release later this year.
In an interview for University of Kentucky’s basketball coach John Calipari’s ‘Cal Cast’ podcast, he shared: “Acting is another thing that I just can’t wait to really dive into, I think after I release ‘More Life’, which is this playlist I’m working on and finish this tour. I think I’m going to really start to position myself in the acting world and, hopefully, take some great roles.”
The ‘Hotline Bling’ hitmaker’s “biggest fear” in life is that he is missing out on something by not dedicating his time to certain things.
He continued: “At the end of the day, It’s all about the time you’re willing to put in. And, my biggest fear is always when I’m not doing it, there’s someone else that’s doing it. That’s my biggest fear in life. When I’m not doing it. When I take a night off for my personal life. When I choose to decompress or relax … not in the back of my mind, in the front of my mind, my biggest fear is if somebody’s not relaxing right now and they’re going to stumble upon something.
“When you get in the studio you have these moments that ultimately propel your career, you have to ask yourself how many of those did I miss by not going in on this given night or that given night.
“Because creating music is sometimes all about timing.
It’s all about me texting this producer at this certain time … It is truly stars aligning, music is. And It’s scary to think of all the (opportunities) you miss because you didn’t sit in there. You know? So I try to not let myself have that fear.”
