Drake posted a lengthy message on his Instagram Stories Sunday, where he spoke on the intentions behind his latest single “War.”
Drake wrote “Just wanna say this for my city in regards to the song ‘War.’ My goal is to always uplift and show love to rappers that are buzzing and gaining the world’s attention”.
He said “My goal is to use our talks that we all use without having it feel like I am taking sides. My goal is to make anyone feel like with the right songs and the right team and the right amount of drive and focus they can push past the darkness and be able to provide for their people and create a legacy.”
Drake went on to say he understands that “there are politics in every city that we can’t deny or escape but I want to be clear on my intentions when I show recognition and support.
He also wished his local counterparts well. “I pray you all emerge successful and can’t wait to see what artists from Toronto pop off in 2020 and beyond.”
