Drake wants to be music icon

Los Angeles: Rapper Drake has revealed he wants to be respected as an icon by the present generation and be remembered through his songs in years to come. The 25-year-old singer said his main career ambition is for his music to stand the test of time and still be remembered.

"I`m a descendent of either Marley (Bob Marley) or Hendrix (Jimi Hendrix). I haven`t figured it out cause my story is far from finished," he explained while discussing the lyrics of his track "Lord Knows".

"I didn`t really say I was the rap Hendrix or Marley, I said I was the descendant. Because I feel like that`s what I want to be for this generation: iconic. That`s the purpose I want to serve on this earth. I want my words to be remembered in 10, 15 years," a website has quoted the singer as saying.
