Dreams Money Can Buy Song Lyrics Meaning - Drake

Read Drake - Dreams Money Can Buy Lyrics Song Meaning Explained.

Album: Care Package
Release Date: August 2, 2019
Record Label: OVO, Republic Records
Songwriter: Aubrey Graham, Noah Shebib, Jai Paul
Producer: Noah "40" Shebib

The chorus samples Jai Paul’s April 2011 track, “BTSTU”. The song was the first to ever surface on the internet from the mysterious UK singer and producer and it has been sampled throughout the industry. For example, on BeyoncĂ©’s April 2012 track, “End of Time.” The House of Saud is the royal ruling family of Saudi Arabia. Its net worth is estimated in the trillions.

Soon after the release of this track, Drake purchased a print of characters from the 1963 children’s story, Where the Wild Things Are. Drake quoted this line in a May 2011 tweet. Like Granny at her “surprise” birthday party, Drake knew his success was coming before it happened.

Charlotte Olympia is a high-end British shoe brand founded in 2008. Their shoes can cost upwards of $1000. YMCMB is an acronym for Young Money Cash Money Billionaires, a portmanteau for the two record labels, Young Money Entertainment and Cash Money Records. Young Money began as a subsidiary of Cash Money, but is now owned entirely by its founder, Lil Wayne, though both labels remain part of Republic Records. Young Money’s emancipation from Cash Money occurred after a public feud between Lil Wayne and Cash Money co-founder Birdman over payment discrepancies.

The Young Money/Cash Money roster includes heavy hitters like Weezy, Nicki Minaj, Young Thug and more. Drizzy signed a joint venture with Young Money and Cash Money in 2009, and despite hinting that he has completed his contractual obligations on 2018’s “Is There More,” as of this song’s release, it is unclear whether he remains on the label.

When this track released, Drake was a big fan of the Clipse. However, Pusha T took offense to this line and in September 2011, he dissed Drizzy on this same beat. Drake name drops Cash Money labelmate Lil Wayne, also known as Weezy and Cash Money co-founder Birdman, also known as Stunna.

This bar might have been the beginning of Drake’s feud with Pusha T. The dispute between Clipse and Cash Money started when Clipse dissed Wayne for wearing BAPE clothing on their October 2006 track, “Mr. Me Too”: Niggas bite the style from the shoes to the watches.

Drake eventually joined in with some subliminal disses, supporting his mentor Wayne in the feud, with the two lines above. After this song was dropped, Pusha T released “Don’t Fuck With Me,” a diss track over this very beat:

Rappers on their sophomores, actin' like they boss lords
Fame such a funny thing for sure

This is a clear shot at Drake, fresh off the release of his sophomore studio album, Take Care.
