Drake’s new track “Wu-Tang Forever” isn’t really about his love for the Wu. Instead, using a sample of Wu-Tang Clan’s “It’s Yourz” off the rap collective’s 1997 double album, Wu-Tang Forever, he details his love affair with a woman who’s already taken. (Listen below.)

With help from producer, Noah “40″ Shebib, Drake breaks down his conflicted feelings about love and fame over a classical piano line. Drake has a lot of feelings, and he’s letting them out on this song, rapping, “I just get a rush when I see your enemy in the club and realize he’s not in a position to reciprocate your energy.” Pretty deep stuff.

Drizzy does take a little inspiration from Wu’s “It’s Yourz,” repurposing Raekwon’s opening line, “Machine gun raps for all my n****s in the back / Stadium packed, just glad to see the city on the map.”

This is the third track fans have gotten a chance to hear from Drake’s upcoming album, Nothing Was The Same, out September 24.

Drake has already released the full tracklist of the record, which features Jay Z, along with a album trailer that shows a cavalcade of cars adorned with the Canadian flag before flashing on the Nothing Was The Same album cover. We imagine Drake wasn’t being escorted around the city like this during his Degrassi days.
