The 6 God Looks Within

In an interview with Lil Yachty, Drake reveals that he feels regretful over name-dropping past girlfriends as he discusses the potential of retirement

In a recent interview with fellow rapper Lil Yachty, Drake shared his feelings on the potential of retiring from making music and revealed a sense of regret regarding name-dropping ex-girlfriends in his work. Upon mention of his 2016 song "Weston Road Flows", where he states that he would retire at 35 (Drake is currently 36), he ponders on what may have been past mistakes.

He states: "I hate hearing that shit...I heard it the other night. I think that and some times when I’ve said girls’ names in songs, maybe those are the two things that I look back on and I’m like, ‘Maybe I coulda done without, like, shitting on people for age or disrupting somebody’s life."

Continuing, the Canadian artist details a conversation he had with an ex that contributed to this change of heart.

He recalls "Just in the sense like, ‘You don’t know what it does to me'"..."'You don’t know who my boyfriend is at the time or you don’t know what my family knows or doesn’t know. And if you express any form of discontent for me and call me by name in a song, then all of a sudden I’m left to pick up the pieces of my own life that I’ve tried to build up for myself.'"

Drake then goes on to declare that while he has been attempting to resist repeating such a habit, his desire in being honest with his music creates difficulties, a "push and pull" according to the 6 God artist.
