Drake Suggests He's Thinking About Retiring From The Rap Industry

There are speculations that Drake might retire soon, despite being one of the most prominent rappers in the industry with a massive fan base.

Even though he is at the top of his game, he has hinted that he is contemplating retiring from the music scene.

This piece of information was revealed in a teaser clip from Lil Yatchy's interview on the Rap Radar podcast.

According to Drake, "I feel like maybe, we talked about this the other day, but I think I'm at the point now where I just wanna...introducing the concept in my mind of a graceful exit."

It's unclear what exactly he means by a "graceful exit" since it could refer to a range of possibilities. It could be leaving the location he was at during the conversation, concluding the interview he was in, or something else entirely.

One possibility is that this could be a publicity stunt to generate more interest in the podcast, enticing listeners to tune in and find out more about Drake's statement.

The full interview is set to be released on February 24th, so we may get more insight into what he meant soon.

Nonetheless, some speculate that Drake may be referring to his career in the rap industry as the graceful exit he's contemplating.

Drake has been extremely active recently, releasing three albums in just two years, including Certified Lover Boy in 2021, and Honestly, Nevermind, and Her Loss in 2022.

Drake's most recent album, Her Loss, was a joint effort with 21 Savage.

It's worth noting that Drake has already started reminiscing about his career rather than focusing solely on the future. During a performance at the Apollo Theater, he reflected on how much he has grown as a rapper since he began his career.

According to Uproxx, he commented:

"I wanted to make this a show about gratitude. This is a little story that we put together."

"My deep love for my family, for my dear friends, and for each and every one of you who have been supporting me for a long time."

"This is my bedroom in my mom's basement where I wrote a lot of new songs. I'm gonna play you some of the s**t that got us out of here."

It remains to be seen what information will emerge from the interview, as Drake's retirement would have a significant impact on the rap industry.
