"Most people I know stay in Toronto. I plan to spend the rest of my life there. The talk, the smell, the sound that comes out of that city is home to me," the rapper said. "When I think about the girls I want to get romantic with, it's a girl from Toronto who knows what I'm talking about when we drive around the city."

So, despite rumors of an engagement between Drake and Serena Williams hitting the web last week (a rep for the tennis pro told ET that the pair "are simply longtime friends") -- a romantic future seems unlikely between the Canadian rapper and the Michigan native.

The former Degrassi star also revealed his desire to break back into the world of scripted programming. "I can't wait to get back into acting," he told the mag. "No one ever asks me to do movies, and, although music is my focal point now, I'd love to do a film. That was the life that I lived before, and it would be interesting to live it again."

Drake also claimed he was "kicked off" Degrassi for attempting to juggle his on-screen duties with a recording career. "Back then, I'd spend a full day on set and then go to the studio to make music until 4 or 5 a.m. I'd sleep in my dressing room and then be in front of the cameras again by 9 a.m. Eventually, they realized I was juggling two professions and told me I had to choose," he said. "I chose this life."

And now, the 28-year-old is still chasing musical greatness.

"I'm always thinking, How do I top what I've done? How do I make this thing stronger? I ask myself, 'Why does Adele's album go diamond, and how do I do that? How do I create art that makes minds stretch further?'" he mused in the article. "I want to give many, many people many, many moments before I'm gone. That's truly the art of what I do. It's the only goal."

That doesn't mean Drake can't have a little bit of fun while he's at it! Find out what sparked romance rumors between him and Williams this summer in the video below.
