Drake Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Fuck bein' on some chill shit
We go 0 to 100 nigga, real quick
They be on that rap to pay the bill shit
And I don't feel that shit, not even a little bit
Oh Lord, know yourself, know your worth, nigga
My actions been louder than my words, nigga
How you so high, but still so down to Earth, nigga
Niggas wanna do it, we can do it on they turf, nigga
Oh Lord, I'm the rookie and the vet
Shoutout to the bitches out here holdin' down the set
All up in my phone, lookin' at pictures from the other night
She gon' be upset if she keep scrollin' to the left, dawg
She gon' see some shit that she don't wanna see
She ain't ready for it
If I ain't the greatest then I'm headed for it
That mean I'm way up
The 6 ain't friendly but it's where I lay up
This shit a mothafuckin' lay up
I been Steph Curry with the shot
Been cookin' with the sauce, chef, curry with the pot, boy
360 with the wrist, boy
Who the fuck them niggas is, boy?
OVO, man we really with the shits, boy
Really with the shits
I should prolly sign to Hit-Boy cause I got all the hits, boy
Fuck all that "Drake you gotta chill" shit
I be on my Lil Mouse drill shit
Fuck all that rap-to-pay-your-bill shit
Yeah, I'm on some Raptors pay my bills shit
All up on TV, I thought it'd make me richer
Wasn't payin' me enough, I needed somethin' quicker
So now I'm all in Niko's basement puttin' work in on the phones
Either that or drive to money mart to make the pickups
Man it's 2008, I'm tryna paint the picture
Comeback Season in the works and now I'm thinkin' bigger
I got 40 in the studio, every night, late night
Gotta watch that shit, don't want to make him sicker
That's my nigga
Oh Lord, got a whole lot to show for it
I mean we can really get it, we can go for it
I'm just here for the bucks and the billi's, nigga
Don't make me kill one of the GOAT's for it
Ugh, I run this shit, they like "Go Forrest
Run Forrest, run Forrest, go Forrest"
Yeah, I mean you already wrote for us
Damn, nigga, what's one more quote for us?
Oh Lord, who else soundin' like this?
They ain't make me what I am, they just found me like this
I was ready, fuck that, I've been ready
Since my dad used to tell me he was comin' to the house to get me
He ain't show up
Valuable lesson, man I had to grow up
That's why I never ask for help
I'll do it for you niggas and do it for myself

I go 0 to 100, nigga, real quick
Real quick, whole squad on that real shit
0 to 100, nigga, real quick
Real quick, real fuckin' quick, nigga
0 to 100, nigga, real quick
Real quick, whole squad on that real shit
0 to 100, nigga, real quick
Real quick, real fuckin' quick, nigga

Whole squad on that real shit
Whole squad on that real shit
Whole squad on that real shit

The other night, Lavish Lee told me that I'm all these people listen to
She said they love me unconditional
Imagine how I feel to watch another nigga at the top
You know that if it wasn't you, you would be dissin' you, dawg
Damn, okay, from that perspective
I see what you're talkin' 'bout, no way to soften that
'Cause me, I was tryna find out where I lost 'em at
But maybe I ain't lose 'em at all
Maybe I keep movin' forward and they're just stagnant, they ain't movin' at all
But when they need a favor, who do they call?
Maybe I'm searchin' for the problems, askin' what was said and who was involved
Too focused on people's feedback and provin' 'em wrong
They say the shoe can always fit, no matter whose foot it's on
These days feel like I'm squeezin' in 'em
Whoever wore 'em before just wasn't thinkin' big enough
I'm 'bout to leave 'em with 'em
'Cause if I run in the game in these, man the seams are splittin'
No pun intended but they're smellin' defeat in the air
Headed where nobody took it, who meetin' me there?
They tell him that he's talkin' crazy but he doesn't care
Bein' humble don't work as well as bein' aware
Listen up, boy, you're better off eavesdroppin'
We already got spring 2015 poppin'
PND droppin', Reps-up P droppin'
Majid Jordan droppin', OB droppin', not to mention me droppin'
Feel like we paid the refs off, man we fixed the game
Me and Noel been at it before Twitter names
Yeah, been on the move like the lease is up
And I can't even name one person that's keepin' up
Damn, fuck how it was in the past tense
Ask yourself, how do we match up now?




'Cause I'm only 27 and I'm only gettin' better
If I haven't passed you yet, watch me catch up now, for real

Overall Meaning

In the first verse of this song, Drake declares that he’s not about being chill, rather he’s ready to go from 0 to 100 immediately. He doesn't feel rappers who only rap to pay the bills as their words are not backed up by their actions. The line “Oh Lord, know yourself, know your worth, nigga” is a reference to Drake's appreciation for his own self-worth and he urges others to recognize their worth too. He’s both a rookie and a veteran, simultaneously taking part in destroying newbies and enticing women with his musical prowess. Drake is seemingly unapologetic about his aggressive and competitive nature, saying he’s not about some rap-to-pay-the-bill thing, no matter who tells him to chill.

In the second verse, Drake dives deeper into his personal life and gives his perspective on fame and success. He talks about how people view him as an influential figure because of his music and how it feels to watch someone else take the top spot. He draws attention to the fact that they might be hating on him only because of their own jealousy. Moreover, he has learned not to rely on anyone for help and do things on his own. In the final lines of the song, he talks about how his music is getting better with age and he's ready to take over the rap world.

I was always going to be successful, people just had to discover me


I was ready, fuck that, I've been ready

Since my father let me down when I was young

Valuable lesson, man I had to grow up

Real quick, whole squad on that real shit

The other night, Lavish Lee told me that I'm all these people listen to
Someone told me that I'm the only artist people listen to

My fans love me no matter what


Imagine how I feel to watch another nigga at the top
It's tough to see someone else achieving more success than me


You know that if it wasn't you, you would be dissin' you, dawg
I know that if someone else was on top, they would be criticizing me


Damn, okay, from that perspective
I need to look at things differently


I see what you're talkin' 'bout, no way to soften that
I understand what you're saying, even if it's harsh


'Cause me, I was tryna find out where I lost 'em at
I'm trying to figure out why my fans may be drifting away


But maybe I ain't lose 'em at all
Maybe my fans are still with me


Maybe I keep movin' forward and they're just stagnant, they ain't movin' at all
Maybe I'm growing and they're not, but that doesn't mean they're gone


But when they need a favor, who do they call?
My fans may come back when they need something from me


Maybe I'm searchin' for the problems, askin' what was said and who was involved
Maybe I'm too focused on the negative


Too focused on people's feedback and provin' 'em wrong
I'm too concerned with what people think and trying to prove them wrong


They say the shoe can always fit, no matter whose foot it's on
Anyone can experience success


These days feel like I'm squeezin' in 'em
These days, I feel like I'm struggling to keep up


Whoever wore 'em before just wasn't thinkin' big enough
Whoever tried to wear these shoes before wasn't up for the challenge


'Cause if I run in the game in these, man the seams are splittin'
If I try to take on the challenge, I may struggle


No pun intended but they're smellin' defeat in the air
Others can sense my struggle and potential failure


Headed where nobody took it, who meetin' me there?
I'm headed to a place where nobody else has gone before


They tell him that he's talkin' crazy but he doesn't care
People may criticize me, but I don't let it affect me


Bein' humble don't work as well as bein' aware
Being aware is more important than being humble


Listen up, boy, you're better off eavesdroppin'
You're better off listening in on what I'm doing


We already got spring 2015 poppin'
We have big things planned for the springtime


PND droppin', Reps-up P droppin'
We have new music and artists dropping soon


Majid Jordan droppin', OB droppin', not to mention me droppin'
We have many new albums coming out soon


Feel like we paid the refs off, man we fixed the game
We feel like we're cheating the system and cutting corners to succeed


Me and Noel been at it before Twitter names
I've been working hard since before social media was even around


Been on the move like the lease is up
I'm always working and pushing forward to achieve more


And I can't even name one person that's keepin' up
Others in the industry are struggling to keep up with me


Ask yourself, how do we match up now?
Others should be questioning how they stack up to me now


'Cause I'm only 27 and I'm only gettin' better
I'm still young and improving with time


If I haven't passed you yet, watch me catch up now, for real
If I haven't surpassed you yet, just watch, I will soon
