Drake Reveals Doubts About Making Hip Hop In His 30s

Drake surmises that he'll bow out of the Rap game before he hits middle age.

Much like Eminem and Lil Wayne before him, Drake has misgivings about rapping into his later years. And though Shady, who turns 40 in October of this year, has yet to hang up the mic, Drizzy sounds fairly certain that he will exit the Hip Hop game earlier than some of his fellow emcees.

In an interview with i-D Magazine, the Young Money emcee addressed the matter without putting an expiration date on anything.

The topic came out of a discussion about balancing relationships and making music. "I personally think that when I find that person and when it is established that we're gonna enter a serious relationship-I mean I don't even know if I'll still be making Rap music. I don't know how long I necessarily want to make Rap music for."

"You know, there are artists who are thirty-five and up that still make Rap and that still works for them," continued Drake. "I don't know if I want to be that guy. A lot of my music is about being young and figuring it all out. I don't know if I can still make my brand of music when I'm up there. Maybe I'll be just acting or whatever it is.

"I plan to make as much music as I can until a story from Drake doesn't impact you as it used to. I guess I'll find my way someone else."
