Drake Covers Source Magazine’s Annual ‘Power 30′ Issue
November is shaping up to be the month of the Drake as he will be featured on the cover of Source magazine's 14th annual "Power 30" issue. On the cover, the recent birthday boy poses with a mouth full of gold chains and is winking to the camera.
In the November issue, the 25-year-old rap wunderkind talks about his music and growing up in his native hometown of Toronto, Canada. Drizzy also reveals in the eight-page spread of how Kanye West has impacted him and his music career. “When I was a kid trying to figure out what I liked, it was [Kanye] who I related to the most," he tells journalist Kim Osorio. "He was an artist, in every sense, from his cover art to his music. Now, I would say he was a really great competitor." Watch out Yeezy, it looks like Drake is eyeing the hip-hop throne.
The Source's annual Power 30 issue boasts a list of hip-hop's top go-getters, tastemakers and executives in the music biz. The magazine will also publish its first-ever Digital 30 list of hip-hop bloggers and influencers who are making it happen on the Internet.
Drake is a good cover choice for the "Power 30" issue since his label, Young Money Entertainment, has been ruling the rap game for most of 2011. With the success of Nicki Minaj's 'Pink Friday' album, she is, undoubtedly, the queen of hip-hop right now. This past summer, Young Money CEO Lil Wayne went platinum in a week with his latest album 'Tha Carter IV.' And with Drake's second album 'Take Care' about to hit stores, we expect more big numbers from the YMCMB camp this year.
The Source magazine's "Power 30" Issue hits newsstands on Nov. 15, the same day that Drake releases his second LP 'Take Care' in retail and digital outlets.
