On his latest track, “Draft Day,” Drake is calling out Chance the Rapper and shouting out Jennifer Lawrence, all while making it clear even after five years in the rap game, he’s still the No. 1 pick.
Sampling Lauryn Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing),” Drizzy talks about eating oysters and laughing with God. “I’m the darkest angel, but he still got me,” he says.
But instead of talking about that thing like Lauryn, he’s talking about that boy. Well, actually you’re talking about that boy, which just so happens to be Drake himself, making a big deal about him singing on every track, when he knows how to spit.
He even gets a little dig in at Chance, spitting, “If I left this thing to chance/I would have picked a name like Chance the Rapper.” But as he says, “No offense, I don’t know that n—-a/I focus on making records and getting bigger/All hits, no misses.”
One thing is clear though, he’s ready to battle to the death: “On some Hunger Games s–t, I would die for my district.” And Katniss herself, Jennifer Lawrence, well, she can give him a call anytime.
