Recently it became extremely easy to forget about upcoming projects from other Hip-Hop artists due to Kendrick Lamar’s verse on “Control”. But as a reminder, Drake‘s album “Nothing Was The Same” is due out September 17th.

“This album is about growth,” says the Toronto MC. “When I play it for people, they ask, ‘Who’s that rapping?’ I’m like, ‘That’s me.'” The LP also features all-star guests from Jay Z to Lil Wayne, plus superhot producers like Scottish DJ Hudson Mohawke. One highlight? The emotional “Connect.” “That one hits you in the heart,” says Drake. “It’s painful and beautiful at the same time.”
