Drake is big ballin’ on the cover of XXL magazine’s September issue — wearing a chunky gold chain and bulky puffer jacker. The smooth MC opens up about his fears that new LP Nothing Was The Same might be overshadowed by competition from heavyweights like Jay Z and Kanye West saying: “I’ve never been part of a year when so many legends are dropping projects. How am I going to be seen? I’m going to be like the kid waving in the background in the photo with all of his tall relatives.”

Drizzy also finally addresses Amanda Bynes‘ tweet rampage. For anyone who hasn’t been online in 2013, the troubled wannabe femcee made international headlines by calling Drake “ugly” and begging him to “murder my vagina”. “I don’t even know who is doing that or what that’s about,” he says diplomatically. “If that is her, I guess it’s a little weird and disturbing. It’s obviously a behavioral pattern that is way bigger than me.” Well played.
