Meeting Drake

"I met Drake through a mutual friend of mine, Hollywood. He's like one of the older dudes from my neighborhood, Galloway. We were listening to the radio one day and I was like, 'Man, who is this?' And he said, 'This is Drake. He's a new kid coming up.' Then I was like, 'Man, I might have to go at this kid. He sounds nice.' I was already trying to be that nigga in Toronto. But he said, 'Nah man, that's family. It's better you guys come together. I'll introduce you to each other rather than you two taking each other out in competition.'

When he says, 'Make them catch a body like that' what he's saying is he has people that love him enough that probably would catch a body for him. I can definitely vouch for that.

"So we ended up meeting and I remember the first time I met him being like, 'Yo this is a cool ass nigga. Like, he ain't from the hood but he's just a real down to earth dude.' And because we had mutual friends it was real easy for me and him to click. I think we built on that relationship because we were both young. We were the same age and were two light skinned dudes in the same city rapping.

"People sometimes don't understand where Drake's music is coming from. When he says, 'Make them catch a body like that' what he's saying is he has people that love him enough and have been his friends long enough that probably would catch a body for him. That's just the type of loyalty that the people around him have. He doesn't have to be speaking about himself, per say, but he's saying that people around him care about him enough to do that for him. And I can definitely vouch for that.

"I'm OVO, that's tatted on me till I'm gone and Drake will always be my brother. But I never wanted to be that guy where people said, 'Oh, you only got on because you had a song with Drake. You only got on because Drake signed you.' I want to show that I can hold my own weight.

"There has never been a P. Reign, Drake song yet but if you get Dear America, you'll most likely hear something crazy on there. I'll leave it at that."
