Songfacts®:

  • This hard-hitting club track was one of three songs (along with "How About Now" and "Heat of the Moment") that Drake released on October 25, 2014, the day after the rapper's birthday. He stated that he dropped the tunes due to them being stolen by hackers.
  • The Boi-1da and Syk Sense produced cut finds Drake spitting braggadocious lyrics to his haters. The '6' is a reference to Toronto's area codes, 416 and 647, which is often used by OVO Crew members in their songs. Drake is stating he's the god of the Toronto rap scene.
