Irv Gotti Says Drake’s New Album Makes Him Want to ‘Find a New DMX’

Not impressed by the Drakes latest album in line with his Hip Hop roots, American DJ, music producer and record label executive, Irv Gotti has expressed his concerns and fears about the future of Hip Hop.

This comes on the heels of Drake’s latest house-influenced album, ‘Honestly, Nevermind,’ which has so far received mixed reactions from the Hip Hop community.

TMZ recently cornered the former Def Jam and Murder Inc. executive at the Los Angeles International Airport where he shared his honest feelings about Drake’s club-oriented direction.

According to Gotti, ‘Honestly, Nevermind’ has only galvanized him to get back in the game and discover a “raw” artist like DMX, JAY-Z or Ja Rule to correct the course of rap.

“Personally, I love Drake,” he said. “I think Drake is a great person, he’s a great human being. But I listened to his album — and Drake can do whatever he wants as an artist … but Drake’s new album is not Hip Hop.”

Gotti was then asked if Drake’s album, ‘Honestly, Nevermind’ probaby heralds the end of true Hip Hop and he wasted no time in saying he would never let that happen as long as he remains alive.

“I hope not! As long as I’m alive, it can never be the demise of Hip Hop. I gotta get back in the game and find me a n-gga. That’s what that album made me feel like. It made me feel like going and finding me a raw new DMX, new Ja [Rule], new Jay[-Z] and serving n-ggas and fucking bringing back great Hip Hop.”
