Drake is loud and proud in professing his love for California. The Canadian rapper shows his addiction to the West Coast by cruising around the town in a music video for a track called "The Motto". Joining him to pay homage to The Bay are his homies Lil Wayne and Tyga, as well as native rappers E-40, Mistah F.A.B. and the mother of the late Mac Dre.
"I love the Bay. I shot the Motto video out here," the Young Money rapper gushed in an interview. "It looks absolutely incredible." Talking further about the star-studded video shoot, he added, "We actually shot it on real film, a lot of people don't do that anymore."
"The Motto" is a digital bonus track from Drizzy's second studio album "Take Care". Although the song gets a video treatment, the MC won't likely release it as a single. Instead, he prefers Rihanna-assisted track and wants to promote it in "a best video I've done to date."
"It's a project where I think visuals are called for, for a lot of those records," he told MTV. "So we're working on definitely the 'Take Care' video, which we're trying to get shot soon and a couple of other ones, too, off the album." He added, "I want to make it perfect ... so I'm just taking my time."
