In his cover story for The Hollywood Reporter, Drake opened up about his music, his passion to jump back into acting, and much more. 

Feat. and more

The superstar revealed that he plans on taking a little break from music to focus on the film industry. While speaking to the publication, the artist said: "I'm sure I'll stop [making music] one day When it starts to feel like I'm making it up. Hopefully I'll catch it before I ever get there, right?"

Then, Drizzy added: "But, right now it feels like we just started, so I don't plan on stopping anytime soon. But, I do plan on expanding—to take six months or a year to myself and do some great films. Music's always there."

It turns out that Drake gets scripts every single week about movie role opportunities. One person who previously attempted to work with him was disgraced Hollywood exec Harvey Weinstein, who wanted the rapper to star in and produce a movie entitled The Heist. But, Drake turned down the chance. "I vetted him with five people and got bad feedback about working with him," the MC's publicist Future (not the rapper), told THR.

Smart move, Aubrey.
