London: Rapper Drake has confessed he resorted to drugs to cope with fame. The musician`s 2010 debut album "Thank Me" topped the music charts. He says his career brought "overwhelming stress" as an artist and that he had taken substances in moderation to relax.

"Have I sipped codeine before? Yeah, of course. Have I smoked weed? Yes. Do I drink wine? Yes," a website has quoted the 25-year-old as saying.

"But do I do it excessively? No. I`m not a reckless guy. I do it all within moderation. You get artists who go crazy and don`t know how to handle it. There are people who have killed themselves," he added.
