Drake Releases ‘Started From the Bottom’ Video From Upcoming ‘Nothing Was the Same’ Album
Drake wants you to know that he ‘Started From the Bottom‘ and worked his way up. His rags to riches story is the focus of his latest music video, which shows how the rapper went from night manager at a drug store to hip-hop superstar.
Drake goes back in time to play himself as a younger man who is thrilled when his boss promotes him to night manager at the store. There’s a minute-long cutaway from the music for a comedy bit in which Drake’s co-workers awkwardly try to hit on an attractive customer. Before long, Drake hits it big and cruises the world in private jets and parties in beachfront mansions.
The rapper says the video is meant to clear up any perception that he had it easy compared to other MCs. “It’s about the misinterpretation of me,” he says. “And it means a lot to me and my friends and what we’ve had to do to get here.”
Drizzy announced that his next album is called ‘Nothing Was the Same.’ Idolator reports that the record is produced by Drake’s long-time collaborator Noah “40″ Shebib and will hit stores this summer. The album will have a lot to live up to, given that his ‘Take Care’ just snagged Rap Album of the Year at last night’s Grammy Awards.
