While the world was sleeping, Drake was up working. The Young Money rapper dropped a new track, which won’t be featured on his forthcoming album, called “5 AM In Toronto”, similar name as a previous track from the emcee “9 am In Dallas”. On the new track , Drake has no shame in throwing shots at the rap game with his snap-fest filled flow.
The track plays as a reminder that Drake is going to be here for the long haul. The rapper mentions his Grammy and reminds that doubters of his accomplishments of only a few short years. “You underestimated greatly/Most #1s ever, how did it really take me?/The part I love most is they need me more than they hate me/So they never take shots, I got everybody on safety.” Drake spits over a Boi-1da track that is fueled with heavy bass and pounding beats. There’s no hook on the track, so it gives plenty of room for the Canadian rapper to snap at his competitors, which has us wondering who he’s referring to. Drake has been relatively away from beefs in the rap game (if you don’t count the incident with Chris Brown).
On the other hand, the comments could be referring to onetime collaborator The Weeknd, who Drake seemed to raise to fame with his backing. “‘Cause I show love, never get the same outta n—s/ It’s funny how money can make change outta n—ga”. The two artist collaborated to form OVOXO, but when The Weeknd dropped Trilogy, Drake’s team logo was no where to be found.
Drake’s upcoming album Nothing Was The Same is due out this summer and we can already tell ti’s going to have everyone talking.
