TOP 10 BEST DRAKE VERSES | LYRICS

Check the verses I’m writing, you might wanna learn it. You hatin’ my song but your wife wanna burn it. So now you at the store for some blank CDs. You can’t see me, for your sake, might wanna return it. ‘Cause if you bring them discs home to ya girl, she’ll forget you. And I’ll be the only one she concerned with.

Drake

 

Finally here I’mma star with the timing. My swagger is chill and my flow is reclining. This for anybody that’s searchin’ for cash and purchase so fast. You only get the dough when you grindin’ and so I grind like I’m listening to all Wayne. My pain, you can experience through the rhyming, boy.

Drake

 

Nowadays, you sayin’ that I should go Jermaine, I should go Pharrell. Either or my nigga, make sure you don’t get shelled. Make sure your money’s right and they do a promotion well so you could get checks, cut like Benedict in Ocean’s Twelve.

Drake

 

Uh look, I’m bold from the get go, go by the title of Drake. And treating me like the rest is a vital mistake!

Drake

 

You can just love me like they do. I need someone special in you. I know that out there, there’s a few. See, I’ve been searching, I don’t know what to do

Drake

 

I’m fire on the move, a tire looking smooth. I’m not perfect but I got a desire to improve. I’m special, like kids in a graduating class- having more trouble than others when addin basic math.

Drake

 

Gotta be special. A girl I can love that sees nothing wrong with getting used to me. Yeah, my name ain’t change but I’m far from the man that I used to be

Drake

 

They say my father lives through me, so this is just basically how my dad spit. I know my cash come quick when it’s sunny. You know a girl is special if I stick with her honey. If it wasn’t for dummies, chick would still have money.

Drake

 

Time don’t wait for none of us that’s why I gotta chase my dreams. Make my momma proud so she can show off all her pearly teeth.

Drake

 

It ain’t as easy as it looks. We go through some shit. You cut us a check, then we go through some hits. Then you show us respect, then we’ll say you legit. And this is the life that I lead from AM to PM.

Drake

 

I’m on set, make it work, break even on 9 to 5’s. Cigarettes and lotto tickets, tryna keep that grind alive.

Drake

 

Lately, I don’t know about the friends that I hang with. I’m nervous ’round my boys, it depends on their anguish, depends on if they saving all the tops on pepsi, with dreams of seeing girls, topless on jet skis.

Drake

 

I’m from the city where people be gettin’ lazy litterin’ in the streets. And the club district is poppin’ like literally every week. And promoters’ll push flyers, money exchange hands. Liars sell you their dreams, and dummies exchange plans. Hustlers give you events, bouncers give you pass. Directors give ’em a shot, so girls’ll give up the ass.

Drake

 

Look, if you a girl with the aspirations of being in the background witcha asses shakin’, hittin clubs and skippin’ out on the class you takin’, I ask you to have some patience. (You’re worth so much more)

Drake

 

I fell in love with a video girl, I wouldn’t call her name. I got the feelin’ that they all the same.

Drake

 

I love to see my black women, strong, single, independent- doing they thing without popping they booty in some rappers. Video, you n’a mean? It’s a wonderful thing, baby.

Drake

 

If she beautiful and honey dances, and you always downtown making money transfers. And anything the color of braces she get excited. She always showing up at these places she get invited. She a video girl.

Drake

 

Yeah, man, it’s a funny thing going through the winter up here, man. A lot of girls, y’know, wanna get close. You might think they the one, but just wait, nah mean? Take it slow.

Drake

 

You special girl, don’t leave me, baby. To find another just like you won’t be easy, baby. So, at least I know where the ones at. Baby, just promise me if you go that you’ll come back.

Drake

 

I’m not one for commitment and romancing exactly because I hate waking up undressed with a dame and guessing her name.

Drake

 

Chances are most of the day you was lying around. I made money that’s why these girls eyeing me down.

Drake

 

I’m the only young dude that the big boys watch.

Drake

 

Yeah, you best believe that I often tend to surpass what the rest achieve, so they don’t like me.

Drake

 

I’ve been hated by many, wanted by plenty, disliked by some, but confronted by none.

Drake

 

Very few give you that truth, it’s either they can’t do it with lyrics or can’t do it in spirit. They cancel what they doing. The samples that they using can’t get through the clearing.

Drake

 

Picture when I was in school- me being the closest thing to black, and guess what rap music what I was into. Rest of the kids were sheltered. I never liked to fight but when someone called me a “nigger” I’d punch them. I couldn’t help it. Now I’m grown, I can say what it is. It’s parents that got these black and Filipino nannies raising their kids.

Drake

 

I like the fact that I have two names because I find that in this industry you have to have dual personalities [especially] being a transitional entertainer [being an actor going into music]. It’s not that I’m pretending to be somebody else but it’s just that the people that I act with, the Directors, Producers and Agents, can’t really relate to what I talk about.

Drake

 

I want to be remembered as an artist that gave you a piece of me, as opposed to some surface bullshit. I just want to be remembered as a poet that was open and honest because I wake up every morning and I’m me.

Drake

 

I want to go on tour with the most exciting artists, and I want to make sure that I have songs with all of them.

Drake

 

I want to get better. That’s the only way to progress. So I’m just young having fun making music.

Drake

 

Life becomes difficult when you’re in this public eye, and I think that we all relate to each other and I try and really talk about it in my music.

Drake

 

I don’t see perfection as far as a visual image of perfection. “Perfection” to me is, I walk away from a situation and say, “I did everything I could do right there. There was nothing more that I could do.” Like, I worked as hard as I possibly could have. That’s perfection.

Drake

 

People only talk about me and sweaters because I don’t give them anything else to talk about.

Drake

 

I always view my music like a city at night, like Atlanta. I view my music in lights. So Far Gone would be my experiences in Toronto at night.

Drake

 

Six months is the most you can ask of any fan in this day and age, with the Internet and all these new artists. I understand that my music is in a lot of mediums. Some people want me to make an R&B album. Some people want me to never sing again. I just don’t want people to be able to draw comparisons between my old songs and my new ones.

Drake

 

Just because I had a winner, it doesn’t mean I’m gonna be like, “OK, I need a new ‘Successful.'” That’s silly. I just don’t want anything to sound like anything else, which I hope is everybody’s vision.

Drake

 

I write best about two things, which is evident from the cover of So Far Gone: the constant quest to understand love and money.

Drake

 

When you have a valid opinion around, it takes a lot of the pressure off.

Drake

 

There’s two elements to rap: having the thoughts, and then being a great rapper.

Drake

 

Me being biracial, me being from Canada but having success in the States, I have all these moments in my life where I’m jumping roof to roof. Black to white. Singing and rapping.
Drake

 

When you have passionate fans, they feel like they’re a part of your career.

Drake

 

I don’t talk to the groupies. I talk to nice, upstanding women. The groupies don’t get my attention. It’s the women that I like.

Drake

 

I like getting my own thoughts out right now, I have fans to solidify, so that’s why I don’t do tracks with too many younger rappers or newer artists. People may consider me to be a music snob or whatever, but I like to preserve what’s mine and I also don’t just do tracks to do tracks, I make every song with a purpose.

Drake

 

You don’t make stupid internet videos or show people you have too much free time, you just say the right things and they’ll be like, “Damn this dude’s a real person and I can relate to that.” That can make somebody’s life, that can make somebody’s day, that can be a line that they never forget.

Drake

 

Since I started, I’ve always been giving my music away for free. I’ve always kind of done it for the people. I don’t want to lose my fans completely because they support me in a way that’s more than just listening to my music. They support me like we’re friends. They support me like they have emotions invested in it.

Drake

 

I like all different kinds of music. I never heavily molded myself after rappers. Sometimes they say when you think something and you go to say it, you lose a lot of color about what you’re trying to say, so to me the best rappers are the people that don’t lose that color.

Drake

 

I’m actually 100% independent. I’m not a Universal artist. I’m signed to myself.

Drake

 

That’s a good thing for me. I own everything, I have 100% creative control, I own all my masters, everything. I’m blessed to be in that situation. If we sell some records, I think we’ll just add to the historic pace that this has been going at.

Drake

 

There’s different girls in my life that play different roles and I see at different times, but collectively they kind of make up the roster of happiness for me.

Drake

 

I wish that we lived in a time and a generation where people would stop viewing my honesty as overly emotional. People always act like I spend my life crying in a dark room. I don’t, I’m good. I’m a man.

Drake

 

I used to always crack jokes in class. I was a good liar and a good talker. I was just good. I was my father’s son. I was slick. When it comes to knowing what to say, to charm, I always had it.

Drake
