Drizzy admits he will retire from rap one day.

Drake has confirmed that he plans to take an extended break from making music.

The ‘Signs’ rapper, who is currently working on a new album, made the surprising confession in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter

"I'm sure I'll stop [making music] one day," he told the publication. 

"When it starts to feel like I'm making it up. Hopefully I'll catch it before I ever get there, right? But right now it feels like we just started, so I don't plan on stopping anytime soon. 

“But I do plan on expanding — to take six months or a year to myself and do some great films. Music's always there."

During the interview, Drake confirmed that himself and longtime manager Future are currently deep in business with Apple about future plans for film, TV and digital content.

The tech giants have reportedly given Drizzy the go-ahead to produce whatever he wants. 

Speaking about Drake’s 25-minute visual album ‘Please Forgive Me’, Apple Music's head of content Larry Jackson said: “Drake was on set with us till 7 a.m. every morning.

"There were certain instances in Soweto where it was really dodgy, and we all felt a little out of our comfort zone, to say the least. And he stayed and was there with us, all huddled around insufficient space heaters trying to keep warm. This guy is one of the most dedicated guys I've ever worked with." 

Meanwhile, Drake confirmed yesterday (Wednesday 9th November), that he will revive popular UK crime drama Top Boy

The rapper took to Instagram to break the news, posing for a picture with actors Ashley Walters, Kano and more, adding that the new series will be aired in 2019.
