Drake Talks First Pot Experience on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon”
The “Degrassi: The Next Generation” star couldn’t say enough positive things about his experience on SNL thus far- "Yesterday I did the read-through and it was like probably one of the best days of my life.”
Drizzy also noted that honcho Lorne Michaels told him to shave his face for the gig- "I'm walking down the hallway and some guy in passing was like, 'We like our clean-shaven boys here,' and I was like, 'That's probably not the best welcome [to SNL].'"
As for his “Degrassi” audition back in the day, Drake told Fallon, "It was the first audition I went on, but it was also the day that I got accepted by these real cool Jewish kids at school. That was [also] my first time [smoking pot]. I started really getting paranoid. I thought I had completely ruined my life. I was splashing water on my face constantly; it was like a Clearasil commercial."
However, these days the Canadian rapper doesn’t mix business with pleasure- "I don't understand people that can actually go out on stage under the influence of anything really. I have to be straight and clear-minded."
