They say if you’re going to dream, dream big. And it appears as if Drake’s dreams are bigger than his sweater collection.

Chopping it up with MTV, Drake revealed his grand plan: to be Marvin Gaye. “I have aspirations to be Marvin Gaye in the back of my head,” he admitted. “So I just want to sing the world’s triumphs and problems on one record and hopefully Nothing was the Same is like the soundtrack to their life.”

Papi also gave up some more details about NWTS: It’s better than Take Care.* Expect a more “concise” and “clear” record with NWTS says Drizzy. “The music that I’m making is more concise, more clear, and I’ve been able to get my thoughts a lot better on this album.”

Feeling as if he missed his mark with Take Care, the 26-year-old rapper thinks he did the damn thing with Nothing…. “Take Care is a great album, but I listened to it and realized where I could do better and I think I’ve done better on this album.”

Judge for yourself when the classic album – nay, the greatest album this century – hits stores September 24th.

*- Who the hell says “this album sucks in comparison to my last”?
