"[It's interesting] to see artists that have a real impact on the world," Drake told MTV News.

"We live in a generation where there is nothing necessarily to fight for politically, whereas in the Bob Marley documentary [for example] he was fighting for peace in Jamaica.

"[There's] nothing necessarily for me to step up and say I want to fight for, but there is a way for me to give moments to the world, and to bear my emotions and hope that I'm remembered as that guy who was able to bring people together.

"I want to be that guy. I want to bring people together."

The hip-hop star went on to explain that his 2011 album Take Care allowed him to discover himself as an artist.

"I feel like with every project we do there's growth and with every project I do, I become more comfortable with the artist I am," Drake said.

"Take Care solidified a lot of things for me. [It's] a list of things that would probably be too immense to go through, but it solidified a lot of things and let me know what I want to do, and who I want to be."

Drake allegedly referred to his recent clash with Chris Brown during a performance on stage over the weekend.
