Cartier’s “Writing Instruments” range in price from $385 to $234,000 CDN. 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''

A gold digger is slang for one who is only fond of an individual for his/her wealth and/or material possessions. Drake is providing a female with a shovel so she can dig her own grave which would prevent her from mooching off of him and gold digging.

Drake has rapped about trust issues in the past. On Trust Issues Drake rapped:

You know what I’m sipping, I’ll teach you how to mix it
But you’re the only one ‘cause I don’t trust these bitches
I don’t, I don’t trust these bitches, they might catch me slipping"

Drake rapped about how a female had set him up in a 2009 robbery on From Florida with Love.

Air Drake is the name for Drake’s private jet, a Boeing 767 worth $185 million dollars. He received the plane for free from Cargojet, the Canadian manufacturer, since they decided it would pay for itself off of publicity.

Air Drake was redesigned in 2020 by Virgil Abloh, the American fashion designer who is the artistic director of Louis Vuitton’s men’s wear collection, along with being the founder of Off-White.

Drake could be saying he took a pill that he made him fall asleep. He rapped about taking Xanax to help him sleep on a flight on Travis Scott’s August 2018 smash hit, “SICKO MODE”.

Drake’s likely making an allusion to his bar on Future’s January 2020 song “Life Is Good” where he talked about an exclusive version of a Patek Philippe watch, designed by Virgil Abloh’s fashion brand, Off-White: Virgil got the Patek on my wrist doin' front flips.

Drake likens himself to former NBA Small Forward Scottie Pippen who played in the NBA from 1987 until 2004. During his NBA tenure, Pippen played for the Chicago Bulls for two stints, Houston Rockets and Portland Trail Blazers. Pippen played a total of 1,178 games during his NBA career. Drake likens his many performances in arenas to the large amount of basketball games Pippen has played in arenas.
