Album : Music to Be Murdered By – Side B Release Date : December 18, 2020 Record Label : Shady, Aftermath, Interscope Records Songwriter : Eminem Producer : Dr. Dre, Eminem, Blacknailz, Blu2th Eminem finds it ironic that he should face such stark criticism while Tekashi 6ix9ine ends up topping the Billboard charts fresh out of prison. In June 2020, two months after his early release, he and Nicki Minaj went to number one with “Trollz.” Tekashi is not exactly known for his lyricism, but he has a well-documented history of controversy and legal issues which include racketeering and sexual assault. Em elaborates on the “wishy-washy” taste of many hip-hop fans by segueing into a subtle allusion to his long-running beef with Machine Gun Kelly. This line doubles as wordplay for machine-washing clothes and a fair weather friend is someone who only sticks around during the good times. The two traded diss tra

Megan references the Netflix original show Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem, and Madness, which is a true-crime story following the tension between Joe Exotic’s abuse and profit off of big cats and a conservationist group aiming to protect the wild animals.

Release Date : December 2020 Record Label : Republic Records Producer : Los Hendrix, Nascent, Carter Lang She has lost so much of herself in this relationship. He made her feel bad and now she is in a lack of confidence, she is no longer trusting herself. Basically, she is claiming that she is trying to keep herself in a healthy place before she loses the few sanity she has left. SZA creates a clever play on words by using the using the homophones “sense" and “cents.” She implies that she is trying to understand the sporadic and minimal communication her lover has given her. This lack of contact represents “loose change,” a combination here of coins and partial understanding. Regardless of SZA’s efforts to add up the pieces, she still cannot come up with the complete, total amount.

Gibbs also appears to refer to the idea that the treatment of Black people throughout American History amounts to genocide. This includes atrocities committed under slavery, which have been called Maafa or the Black Holocaust, and the lynching, compulsory sterili

While he does not hold a grudge against his significant other for past transgressions, he must move past hurtful situations. Here, Baby expresses his frustration through choosing to discard letters of affection and, by extension, his connection to a lost love. On his hit 2019 single, “Woah,” Baby outlined a similar lack of willingness to start over with someone, even when feelings change: She said she miss it and sendin' emojis No time to kick it, I’m always in motion Can’t say I miss you, I don’t got emotions
Read Madvillain - Meat Grinder Lyrics Song Meaning Explained. Album : Madvillainy Release Date : March 23, 2004 Record Label : Stones Throw Records Songwriter : Americo Galindez Producer : Madlib This sample comes from the Frank Zappa song Sleeping in a Jar, which comes from his album Uncle Meat. The album title might have inspired the name Meat Grinder. The sample begins at the end of the song Accordion, and sound effects continue to play throughout the song in the background, such as a pig snort, possibly continuing to play into the meat theme. He’s “tripping off the beat”, that is, hallucinating as if on drugs. “Dripping off the meat grinder” is a metaphor for “fresh”, as in Madlib’s crazy production on this track. “Tripping off the beat” may also refer to DOOM’s off-kilter flow. The expression “trip/roll off the tongue”, means “to say something with ease”. It might mean that he spits lyrics without effort, like a grinder that easily grinds meat. The meat comes off the

Album : Care Package Release Date : August 2, 2019 Record Label : OVO, Republic Records Songwriter : Aubrey Graham, Shebib, Kevin Crowe, Erik Producer : J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League Drake is implying to the woman he is with or has been with in the past that he would’ve came back to her but most likely got caught up in the fame and fortune and it has consumed him and he cant seem to change his ways because he has got so adjusted to a certain lifestyle “Caught up in the life I cant let it go”. Drizzy references Marvin Gaye’s 1973 track “Distant Lover” from the classic album Let’s Get It On. A live version of the track peaked at #28 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1974, while the original was sampled in Kanye West’s 2004 track “Spaceship.” As a child, Drake spent his Summers with his (black) father in Memphis and the rest of the year with his (white) mother in Canada.

Album : Care Package Release Date : August 2, 2019 Record Label : OVO, Republic Records Songwriter : Aubrey Graham, Shebib, James Fauntleroy, Wade Brown Producer : 40 Ask any girl her opinion on Bey – it’ll be positive! This is largely because Beyoncé’s tunes are frequently narratives spoken by and directed towards women. As a result, Beyoncé is widely considered to be the strongest female role model in popular American music. Drake is commenting on his perception that some girls take the “Beyoncé thing” too far, becoming cold-hearted players like the men they were leveling the playing field with. Fame can make it harder it is to meet someone genuine and start something special. All of his recently failed relationships have him feeling hopeless about the situation, similar to his verse in “Unthinkable (Remix)”. At this stage in the game it’s tough for Drake to find a woman who wants som
Read Drake - Can I Lyrics Song Meaning Explained. Album : Care Package Release Date : August 2, 2019 Record Label : OVO, Republic Records Songwriter : Aubrey Graham, Shebib, Knowles, J. Marr Producer : 40 Beyoncé monotonically chants the opening to all of Drake’s questions as he asks his girl permission to do various different things and closes with them with a pet name—her voice then eerily echoes and lingers in the background. The whole verse structure (interpolation of Drake’s rap, into Beyoncé’s line) serve to give extra meaning to Drake’s line, in a similar manner to what Kanye achieved with Nina Simone’s sample in “Blood On The Leaves.” The effect adds to the sense of venting in the song: there is a constant flow of interruption, as if the ‘Can I’ and ‘Baby’ are the girls attempts to enter into the conversation that Drake himself is asking for. Ironically (and tragically) his inability to allow her space stops that same conversation from happening and we understand—‘

Album : Care Package Release Date : August 2, 2019 Record Label : OVO, Republic Records Songwriter : Aubrey Graham, Shebib, Myron Avant, Stephen Huff Producer : 40 The purpose of this verse is to show that things can change quite drastically (kids not reading at school and wanting to be something they’re not) and how some things never change (cops doing nothing about crime). This is Drake using those examples as a comparison to his own life; will the end of his career spell a change in him or will he be the same old Drizzy. This obviously scares him as he leads into the line in the chorus, ‘I don’t wanna think about that right now’ because, as the first verse shows, he has already. Drake sees the hip hop game full of artists just echoing one another. There’s a pervasive lack of originality. Kids would rather emulate all of this to be “cool” instead of educating themselves. Drake does not approve. Education is c

Drake has been, by his own admission, obsessed with Jimi Hendrix in recent years, even leaving a note on the great guitarist’s grave – his pilgrimage there is pictured below. “Voodoo Chile” and, especially, its reprise “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)”, are well-known Hendrix songs. This section serves as a tribute to deceased Texas rap figures. Chad “Pimp C” Butler was a member of the legendary Texas rap group UGK.

Here, Drake quotes his doubters, as they tell him he’s changed on his growing fame. But, in reality, all he cares about is money and Toronto. These 3 lines are co-vocalized by The Weeknd. When Drake goes out to all the fancy events he feels out of place, not least because his crew members are not used to the high life. Chubbs is a member of Drake’s OVO crew, which recently visited Crooks N Castles, a street clothing line. Chubbs is Drake’s personal bodyguard.

As soon as the beat kicks in, Drizzy knows the track is destined for great things. The “dub” effect gives the beat a hectic-fast feel of time passing by. This may symbolise the rapid growth of Drake’s career and bank account. A reference to Drake’s song “Too Much” off of his third album, Nothing Was the Same. Both detail the hectic rush of living a fast-paced life. Drake questions his love interest’s decision not to visit him at the places in which he stays – either his safe house in Calabasas, or his condo in Toronto – choosing instead to hide out in her condo in New York. It is rumored that Drake is referring to Rihanna. On the first single off PND’s upcoming

His first cover describes his rise to fame in the rap game and his second delves into his fashion sense and exposure to designer clothing. His third and most recent cover delves into his difficult upbringing and further describes his rise to fame and prosperity. Drake connects this line to the line above through his usage of the word “cover.” While Drake is on magazine covers, other rappers cover his old songs, sounding “like Drake featuring Drake.” This line could be adding fuel to the fire of the ongoing Chris Brown vs. Drake beef. Last year, Drake released a song featuring Aaliyah’s vocals called “Enough Said”. Chri

Hip-hop has a tradition of “braggadocio” rap, and Drake is no stranger to this. On tracks like “Legend” and “0 to 100” he claims: If I ain’t the greatest then I’m headed for it That mean I’m way up Drake appears to shun other rappers who take a similar route. If he considers himself the best, then everyone else must be lying. This is also a reference to the 2009 Ice Cube movie, Janky Promoters. Drake believes his label is as prominent as the New York Yankees, an American baseball team that were founded over a century ago (in 1901). The franchise holds two of the most important MLB team records with 18 division titles and 27 World Series championships.

Many believe it’s Rihanna, not only because the third line ends with “drama,” but because the two have a history together, as reported in an April 2014 MTV News article that states: they’ve been spending plenty of time together in Europe If the missing word isn’t Rihanna, however, Drake could be be reassuring Rihanna that she’s the only one for him. It should also be noted that the response vocals at the end of these lines are sampled from the music group, The Kids at Widney High from the 2005 film, The Ringer.

Chubbs is not only a member of Drake’s OVO crew, he is also Drake’s long time friend and bodyguard. “From the Way” is slang for Galloway, which is a popular neighborhood on the Eastside of Scarborough, which ties in with his next line. Drake is giving a shoutout to Scarborough, a borough on the eastern fringe of Toronto proper. The area is stereotypically associated with violence due to its impoverished community.

As a huge A-list celebrity, Drake lives larger than life and it is easy for someone who is not used to it like the girl he speaks about to get lost in. She gets lost in the fame, the expensive gifts, popularity etc. At the same time, she’s too focused on it that she has lost herself and as a result Drake has lost her.

Of course, Drake sounds no different while singing the line that he wrote with a Cartier pen. It is a rhetorical question, asking not if he truly sounds different, but whether or not the Cartier pen is worth the mass amount of money that he paid for it. The answer does not matter: what matters is Drake’s financial ability to purchase a pen that expensive. On April 14th, 2020, Drake posted a Cartier pen on his Instagram Story using the caption, “Wrote this with the…,” a direct reference to this line of the song. This is a possible reference to a Rolex purchase that Drake made for J. Cole. On January 23, 2019, J. Cole dropped the track “Middle Child''
