Spent some time with MGMT over the last year and wrote about their uncompromising approach to their own career— and what the future could conceivably hold for them— for Pitchfork’s latest Cover Story. Hope you enjoy it.
Making my DJ debut as Richard Pretty this Friday at Cameo Gallery, along with friends Ashley MaGee, Corban Goble, and Ryan Dombal (who may or may not actually be a real person). I go on at 1:00 a.m. if you want to throw dirty socks at me while I try to transition “Gangnam Style” into a different remix of “Gangnam Style”.
VIBE.com: You were on Degrassi for eight years. It must have taken a lot to leave that comfort zone. When did you know it was time to go?
Drake: I can’t really say I left that show. One day we came in and all the names were just changed on the dressing rooms. Everyone got cut. We go upstairs and it’s like, “Who are all these people auditioning in the front?” They owe us a lot of money. The amount of loyalty, the years we put in with these people…they did us foul. As far as the producers go, I don’t talk to anybody over there.
