Drake (Universal)
Canadian rapper Drake told MTV News that he is proud to have been completely in control of the making of his new album, Take Care. The rapper, whose real name is Aubrey Drake Graham (born 24October 1986) will release his sophomore CD on 15 November and he insisted that he deserved to call the shots on the CD, which he believes reflects who he truly is as an artist. "That's one of the biggest stories behind this album, it's either my way or we're not doing it - in everything," he told MTV News."Every photo shoot, every video, every step I'm taking I feel like I've earned the right to do it my way, so part of doing it my way I want you to see who I am really around." Drake has teamed up with a number of artists for Take Care, including Rihanna, Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj. The rapper is set to perform in South Africa for one night only on Friday 9 December at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Jozi. All tickets for the event is sold out. He will be performing as part of the The Castle Lite Feel the Beat of the Sub Zero experience, which has been described as a "unique extra cold music property at a winter wonderland to live and breathe the invigorating effect of Castle Lite`s extra cold refreshment for a `moment to remember`". Some of SA’s leading DJs and performers will also be in on the act, performing before Drizzy hits the stage. The likes of DJ Sphe, Naves, Switch and Naked Deejay will be hitting the decks, while other spectacular SA acts will be performing live. T-bo Touch, Slikour and Ranaka will be the MCs for the night.
