Young Money emcee Drake recently spoke about his upcoming sophomore album and how he will use his favourite childhood Disney character Winnie The Pooh as inspiration.

“I bought the first-ever Winnie the Pooh books, like all four Winnie the Pooh books,” Drizzy said.

Drake told DJ Semtex during his recent trip to the U.K. “It cost me a lot of pounds, man. I probably could have bought a small car for that.”

Drake promise fans that Pooh’s prescence would be felt on his highly anticipated upcoming sophomore LP.

“Winnie the Pooh is like super not hip-hop [but] that’s my influence, man, Winnie the Pooh on this next album,” Drake revealed in an interview. “Thank Me Later was a rushed album. I didn’t get to take the time that I wanted to on that record. I rushed a lot of the songs and sonically I didn’t get to sit with the record and say, ‘OK, well maybe I should change this verse.’ Once it was done, it was done. That’s why my new album is called Take Care ’cause I get to take my time this go-round.”
