Drake is coming down to the wire with finishing his new album, Nothing Was The Same. A new interview with Rolling Stone was conducted with just 10 days left before the Canadian rapper had to turn the record in to the label and he said, ""I'm literally sleeping in the studio on an air mattress. We're working 24-hour days to make sure the story is done, front to back. It has to be a new point of discovery."

Drake and his longtime producer/engineer Noah "40" Shebib have been working extensively at Metalworks Studio this summer, which is in the suburbs just outside of the rapper's home town of Toronto.

"With [2011's] Take Care, everything had changed so much. I was almost lost mentally, looking for something that wasn't there," Drake told Rolling Stone. "With my new album, it's the most concise picture of the moment I'm in right now. I had a choice whether to hold on to whatever the past was or to fight and fully embrace this incredible time in my life."

Though the track list hasn't been finalized for Nothing Was The Same (due out September 24), potential cameos are on tap from Jay Z, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz and others. In a new interview with XXL, Drake revealed that his own father appears on a bonus track, "Heat Of The Moment."

Shebib tells Rolling Stone that the new album has "a huge change in tone. Before, Drake was a nice guy. Here, he's stepping up the attitude and playing hardball.
