In a recent interview with Paper Magazine, Drake expresses how much he would love to play President Obama if a movie was made about him.
“I hope somebody makes a movie about Obama’s life soon because I could play him. That’s the goal [laughs]. I watch all the addresses. Anytime I see him on TV, I don’t change the channel, I definitely pay attention and listen to the inflections of his voice. If you ask anyone who knows me, I’m pretty good at impressions. Slowly but surely, I’m not in the study mode because nobody’s called me about anything, but I just pay attention so when the day comes I’m not scrambling to learn how to speak like him. I want to be involved in great film projects. I don’t want to do the basketball movie that everyone does. I don’t want to do the typical black film that everyone expects. I think that I have enough experience to actually be involved in a real meaty project full of substance.”
I can’t see Drake playing President Obama but you can’t knock a brother for dreams and ambitions. I keep forgetting he is an actor turned rapper so maybe I would watch it. Actually I would like to see him in a movie but not just any movie but a meaty project as he would say. Maybe the big screen would do him so justice because his videos on the small screen don’t. I guess for now, Drake can keep making good music until something else worth while comes his way.
