Want to improve your interview skills? A good place to start is by reading and watching as many quality interviews as possible, and as far as we’re concerned there is no better interviewer in music today than Nardwuar the Human Serviette. Stars big and small have been wowed by Nardwuar’s vast knowledge of music history, and you will be too. The thing is, you could be just as good as him in time if you’re willing to do the work. Schedule interviews as far in advance as possible, do your research, and don’t shy away from taking risks with your questions. Your goal should be to look beyond the obvious and seek a way to form a unique connection with the talent. Here, in an incredibly rare one-hour interview, Nadwuar accomplishes just that with none other than Drake. Enjoy.
