Many artists have shied away from their passion during the coronavirus pandemic.

Some have pushed back album releases canceled tours and gone dark as they attempt to get things right. But one rapper who’s taken to the isolation exceptionally well is Drake. It started with the release of “Toosie Slide” a month ago, where he not only gave fans a new dance to keep us occupied as TikTok gets even more popular amid global boredom, but also a tour of his house, and even responsibly wore a face mask the whole time.


Young Money head honcho Lil Wayne tapped Drake for the second episode of Young Money Radio Show to talk about his quarantine-introduced Dark Lane Demo Tapes and much more. He revealed that the project is partially a collection of songs that were previously leaked, so he decided to give them a home.

“There was just a lot of joints that were sort of floating around, songs that people were asking me about and for. You know, with the whole pandemic thing that’s going on, we’ve been kinda playing music on live, so there were joints that were being played on live and then there were a couple leak situations that happened a little earlier this year […] I couldn’t believe how much music was leaking, not just from me, but every artist […] so we pieced a lot of those songs together, and I put a few new joints on there, but really it was just instead of dropping a single right now I just felt like people would appreciate a body of something to listen to as opposed to just one song.”

Delving even deeper into the new project, Wayne explained to Drake that “From Florida With Love” reminded him of a touching moment he had with Kobe Bryant back in the late 2000s.

“On the song “From Florida With Love,” you reminded me of the time that I played “Lollipop” on the tour bus for you and the late, great Kobe Bryant. Rest in peace to the Black Mamba,” Lil Wayne told Drake.

What is most important for you right now is to connect to your own inner light. This will create the biggest opening of all. Trust that you have all of the power within to make this happen, and in order to do that connect to the people and things that bring you a lot of joy. When the mind starts to move into overthinking or fear, shift your attention right away to something bright. It doesn’t matter what has happened in the past or what is happening around us now, you can always make the choice to break free of the wheel of suffering and panic and open up to your own light. We are powerful manifestors , so once you make the choice in the moment to shift your awareness to something good, it will show you in your reality. Be conscious, especially right now of fears coming in from others, and recognize that not everything should be held by you. Laughter is your best medicine, but tears can also be a powerful release. Let go of any judgment you may have around that. Remember that you are never alone, and if you need to be reminded of that ask for support and it will show up. Everything comes down to intention, and even though there are conflicting energies circling around us you must KNOW…It will rebuild. But in order for that to happen, you have to do exactly that. Trust. You have the biggest heart and that is your greatest gift. It’s impossible to always control your surroundings, but when you shift the focus to how you want to feel, everything will conspire to assist you. I love and miss my beautiful family and friends and I can’t wait for the joyful day when we are all able to reunite. Until then please keep your lights on. 🤍

The Toronto rapper even got a bit personal when speaking about his son Adonis, who he hid from the world, before finally showing photos of him on Instagram at the end of March.

“It was great to just share that with the world and it wasn’t even anything I talked about or anything I planned, Drake explained. “I just woke up one morning and I was like, ‘You know what, this is just something that I wanna do.’ I wanna be able to go places with my son, share memories with my son.”
