Drake's "Started From The Bottom" hit the Internet with unrelenting abandon. Not only did it signal a return for the popular Toronto rapper, it somehow gave his peers the creative license to spit their own rhymes atop the piano-laced instrumental.

In an interview with MTV this past weekend, Drake spoke of the song's creative direction. "I just wanted to make it known that I did work really hard to get here, and it wasn't just a fluke," Drake said.  "It wasn't easy by any means."

Drake's Take Care recently won the Grammy for Best Rap Album. His new album, Nothing Was The Same, does not have a release date as yet.
