Drake is the Man

Yea we've all dealt with adversity at some point, but man wouldn't it suck if you were just starting to make it big and two tour dates into your first big tour you had to have reconstructive surgery to basically rebuild your knee so you could *maybe* walk again?? Then to go and release a statement to the fans that is this genuinely positive despite what he's going through as if he still owes us something...

From Drake's Blog October’s Very Own:

"This bottle of Opus One is low but my spirits are high my friends. I am about 2 hours away from Toronto, CA where I will be spending the next chunk of time recovering from a surgery that I now must have. I embarked on this tour with a torn ACL, MCL, and LCL and due to the events that happened the other night lord only knows what other damage I have done. On the bright side I will begin the reflecting and soul searching that its going to take to make this album and my outfit on the night I fell was crack.

I will forever push myself beyond the limits despite advice and recommendations given because even with this new found success I am still the kid who wanted this more than anything in the world. Its funny when I read comments from previous fans who have lost interest because of the radio play and exposure I have. I just want to assure anyone reading that nothing has changed on my end. I refuse to get comfortable, I refuse to fall in line and follow anyone elses formulas. I still work as if So Far Gone had never dropped and I’m still trying to figure out how I’m going to gain entry to this game.

“Missing someone gets easier everyday. Because, even though it is one day further from the last time you saw each other, it is one day closer to the next time you will”

See you soon.


Good luck with the rehab Drake, if anything we owe you for going out there and putting on a show despite your knee being in pieces. Really glad I copped this while I was there now...
