Superstar rapper Drake has announced that he will be taking a break from his music career in order to prioritize his health.
In an emotional statement released, the chart-topping artist revealed his decision to step away from the spotlight for an indefinite period, recognizing the urgent need to take care of his physical well-being.
Drake disclosed this on his SiriusXM radio show, Table For One, on Friday, just hours after the release of his new album, ‘For All The Dogs.’
He stressed that he had been dealing with stomach troubles for years and that the break, which would last for a year or more, would allow him to concentrate on his health.
Drake said.“I probably won’t make music for a little bit, I’m gonna be honest.
“I need to focus on my health, first and foremost… Nothing crazy, but just like, you know, I want people to be healthy in life, and I’ve been having the craziest problems for years with my stomach.”
“I’m going to lock the door on the studio for a little bit. I don’t even know what a little bit is. Maybe a year or something. Maybe a little longer,”
