Everybody's talking 'bout Drake, Drake, Drake on the rap scene these days and it's clear why. With a massive, Grammy-nominated introductory megahit, "Best I Ever Had" and hip-hop heavyweights like Jay-Z, Kanye West and Lil Wayne behind him, the Canadian born Aubrey Graham, 26, now has two more rap hits off his No. 1 debut album (selling over 446,000 copies, per Nielsen Soundscan), Thank Me Later. His NYC album release day performance literally caused a riot that shut it down before he even hit the stage.

So, with all that hype (I didn't even mention his brief fling with Rihanna!), Drake is opening up in a new documentary, Drake: Better Than Good Enough, premiering tonight on MTV at 10 p.m./ET. In the flick, cameras followed the rapper as he played dates on his cross-country "Away From Home" college tour and recorded his first disc.

UsMagazine.com just got a sneak peak at the flick and assembled some of the rapper's most choice soundbytes. Read on to discover the newly-anointed rap king's thoughts on how fast his success came -- and how he pens his golden rhymes!
