While Drake hasn't usually been one for commenting on current events or political matters, he seemed unable to hold back his concerns about Donald Trump during a show in London over the weekend.
"For some reason in my room, they got the TV set to CNN," Drizzy said, suggesting his television options are somehow limited. "Every day I wake up, I see this bullshit going on in the world. People trying to tear us apart, trying to make us turn against each other.”
He continued, confessing, "Tonight, my proudest moment isn’t selling tickets or having people sing my songs. My proudest moment—if you take a look around this room, you’ll see people from all races, all places. And all we did tonight was come inside this building, show love, celebrate life, more life and more music."
He then made clear he wasn't simply lamenting the state of the world, but rather expressing frustration with the President of the United States: "I just want you to understand, if you ever thought for one second that any one man is gonna tear this world apart, you’re out of your motherfucking mind. It’s on us to keep this shit together. Fuck that man!”
Drake's U.K. trek continues on Wednesday with a two-night stint in Leeds.
