Drake Says He Regrets Using His Music To Air Out Ex-Girlfriends

He expressed the thought during an interview with Lil Yachty.

Drake is expressing regret over name-dropping women he’s dated in his music, particularly after one woman made him think about how those shout-outs have impacted them.

During an interview with Lil Yachty for Moody Conversations, the Toronto rapper reflected on retiring from putting out music, but then the conversation pivoted to his 2016 song “Weston Road Flows,” on which he suggested he’d retire at 35.

“I hate hearing that s**t,” Drizzy said. “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, s*****g on people for age or disrupting somebody’s life.'”

He added: “The lyrics are never with ill intent, but I had somebody tell me one time, ‘You know, it’s not necessarily what you’re saying about me, it’s the fact that you said it.'”

This isn’t the first time Drake has hinted about when his rapping career may be done. Last August, he joined an episode of Queen Radio where he said he wasn’t ready to give it up yet.

“I’m not at that point where I even consider that being an option,” Drizzy explained. “One of the best feelings I have in my life is completing a song or project. And by the way, those things are painful as well. A lot of nerves, a lot of confidence wavering.

“But I feel like I’m reaching a new level of fun,” he added. “I’ve reached a new level of comfortability where I want to try things. Like this last album, I put out something I wanted to do to challenge myself.”
