Sunday, Jun 13, 2010 9:29AM
Young Money's Drake has revealed a potential title for his sophomore album.
According to Drizzy, he may call his Thank Me Later follow-up Moments.
Drake's debut album hasn't even hit stores yet, but he's already thinking of a second album title. Moments is the name he's been tossing around for his sophomore effort, reports the Los Angeles Times. While nothing has been set in stone, he explained the reasoning behind the title. "Hip-hop is all about moments," said the 23-year-old rapper. "You look at people who were hot three or four years ago who are sitting around reminiscing. It's fickle. It's a game of moments. I'm the moment right now." (Rap-Up)
Despite his debut album leaking online recently, Drake is still confident in its overall quality and performance in retail stores.
"I always said if I had put out an album that was poor quality and music that people didn't enjoy, then I think the leaks would hurt me," Drake said in an interview. "Because a lot of the feedback has been great. The word of mouth, music is something that is to be enjoyed. I think it can help me so, June 15th, I'm still confident." (The Life Files)
In addition to rap, Drake recently said he still sees himself venturing into acting in the future.
"I think between myself and Lil Wayne, we make timeless music," Drake explained in an interview. "So I know it'll last for a while and when the time is right, I'll definitely go back into acting, it's a passion of mine...I'm still learning, my vulnerability and my music is key. And that's what's gonna keep me humble and keep me grounded and keep me proud to be here, grateful to be here, proud to be Canadian, all those things. I think it's so important to me...I think my music is very personal, I think I say things in my music that mean a lot to me but to a certain audience, it's not what they want to hear."

Last April, the rapper talked about making a move into television.
"The album comes out on June 15th," Drake confirmed in an interview referring to Thank Me Later. "It was really just about me getting into the right creative head space and delivering a first album that people could all appreciate. So, I think I got it now. Yeah, June 15th, I'm excited...Television is sort of an exhausting, repetitive format to be in but I'm definitely, like after this album and I have another project I have in mind that I want to do but after that I'll probably get back into some movies, yeah. I'm excited to do movies again. I like being on set." (Music On Campus)
Thank Me Later drops Tuesday, June 15th.
