Drake Visits Jimi Hendrix’s Grave

In a Q&A in the latest issue of Rolling Stone, Drizzy Hendrix speaks on visiting the final resting place of legendary rock guitarist Jimi Hendrix after a tour stop in Seattle. He wrote dude a letter too. Sorry Aaliyah.

Update: ATF with the scan

Why did you decide to visit Hendrix’s grave?
I’m a huge fan—I play the DVD of Hendrix at Woodstock to pump me up before I perform. Watching him go out there at 10 in the morning in shitty weather and conquer the world always gives me a little more adrenaline. I just left a little letter for Jimi at his grave.

What did the letter say?
It wasn’t a real letter. I just wrote him a message on a pack of Zig-Zags. It said, “Still inspired”.

    I mean paying tribute to one of the true guitar gods aint bad.. It just seems like every answer this guy is the most basic answer.. I mean he must only know about jimi at wood stock.. knows nothing of his creative ability.. Jimi would get a ride form the a taxi driver on his way to eletric lady land.. he would be looking for someone who could play alittle drum riff.. if the taxi driver said he could.. jimi let him in.. and they recorded.. Jimi would do countless thing in a microphone distorting sounds(i.e. using a a broke bottle as apick.. then taking and playing the bottle with his fingers or anything really trying to replicate the soundds that he said he heard in his brain.. Jimi was the god of creativity.. and while woodstock was a great time for hendrix and many other musical acts from that era.. Drake’s uninspired answer taking one of the most obvious points of jimi’s life is a half hearted attempt to reach into a mainstream pool of people that he hasnt yet reached.. I mean if you wanna claim this dude inspired you cite something that is more than just the most known thing hendrix did besides getting killed by his manager.. It aint wrong to say your inspired by an artist but come on mannnnnnnnnnn
