He’s won over critics with his introspective style, he caused a riot when he tried to play a free show and fans camped out overnight last week for his hotly-anticipated debut, Thank Me Later .
There’s no question that Drake is one of the most high-profile artists in the game right now, but he’s opening up to his fans even more in the upcoming documentary Drake: Better Than Good Enough which airs on MTV Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
“I shot a documentary — it was the two months leading up to my album. It was like the most important time of my life — ever,” Drake told MTV’s “Sucker Free” about the doc, which goes behind the scenes as he finishes and prepares to drop his highly-anticipated debut. Drizzy said he wanted to give his audience deeper insight about himself in the documentary. “I documented [the months before Thank Me Later dropped] for you to see, so we can get to know each other a little better,” Drake said.
The documentary gives fans little-known tidbits about Drizzy and takes viewers along as he straps in for on his meteoric rise. The cameras follow Drake from the kick-off of his “Away From Home” tour and captures the moments as he and his crew wrap up Thank Me Later. Along the way, he opens up about everything from his mother’s failing health to his training sessions with his vocal coach.
“I just want people to walk away … just feeling a little bit more confident about Drake,” Drizzy says in the documentary . “In no way do I want people to be like, ’He’s the best. He’s the man.’ ’Cause I really do have a desire to grow and get better. I do want people to walk away and be like, ’OK. OK.’ ”
