Drake “Draft Day”
You should’ve followed all my moves, youAnnotate won’t realize ’til after
And if I left shit to chance I would’ve picked a name like Chance the Rapper
No offense cause I don’t know that nigga
I’m focused on makin’ records and gettin’ bigger
Just hits, no misses, that’s for the married folk
Tell ’em fix my suite up cause I’m comin’ home
I heard they talkin’ crazy, I was out of town
You know they love to pop all that shit when I’m not around
The Johnny Manziel bromance continues and Drake addresses Chance, and Jay Z perhaps? *nods head*, in successive lines above on this Lauryn Hill-sampled track. It’s this “Doo Wop” sample put on by Boi-1da, Syk, & Ducko McFli that becomes the perfect backdrop for Drake to put on his rap cap and fire out a fury of boastful lines. I thought it was well-executed all the way around and find myself nodding to this one and laughing at Drake’s choice for the cover art. Ha! Manziel isn’t the only draft day prospect getting a hat tip in the song; Drake also shouts out his fellow Toronto-bred homie Andrew Wiggins, who officially declared for the NBA Draft on Monday. Tweet us what you think of Drake’s new track!
NOTE: The Jay Z sublims are a response to the Jay’s recent lines in the new “We Made It” with Jay Electronica.
