If you were wondering what has Drake looking so down on the cover for his latest album, Take Care, the rapper recently revealed to MTV News the inspiration behind the artwork. Before experiencing his current fame and glory, Drake likened himself to a boy who used to stare through the metaphoric glass window hoping that one day he'd also have a life filled with strip clubs, money, booze, and girls.


"That's who's sitting on that album cover, that kid that's just somehow gone from his mom's basement in Toronto to becoming a king," he explained. "That's what that album cover is about and there is a lot of deep thought involved in that 'cause you can go crazy doing this."


But Drake isn't ready to hang up the gold chains and walk away just yet. 


"No, I'm immersed in that lifestyle, but I'm not gonna let it consume me though," he said. "That's what the album is pretty much about, just staying sane, but maybe, maybe not really though. You have to listen to it."
