Drake: David Guetta Has No Integrity or Soul

Rap star, Drake, revealed in a recent interview that he has no interest in working with DJ/producer, (and fellow Jew), David Guetta.

While speaking with NME Magazine, Drake said, “For me, the David Guetta stuff just doesn’t work. I don’t really wanna go there. There’s other artists, that’s their sound.”

'They feel in order to thrive internationally that they gotta do straightforward, four on the flour, David Guetta, Pitbull music.

''For me, I'd rather go to somebody like Jamie xx and tell him, 'Look, I really wanna turn the club upside down, but I wanna do it with integrity, with soul.''

David Guetta is currently the most popular DJ in the world, having worked with international pop acts including Nicki Minaj, Flo Rida, Ludacris, Taio Cruz, and Snoop Dogg.

Drake also explained that although he enjoys fame, he is a low-key guy that enjoys the same things as other guys his age.

“I've been playing FIFA, eating Jamaican food and listening to dancehall in little basements. That's just what I do. I don't want to change just because I'm playing in The O2.

''There's only about five rappers who could sell out there right now. I just happen to be the young boy, there's no point me trying to be older than I am.''
