Here, Drake reminisces on a relationship that went off course once he became famous. We started this from the bottom, now you alone there
Drake is referencing his 2013 track "Started from the Bottom
" as he recounts his rise to fame from nothing.
Once the Toronto MC blew up, he could share some of the rewards of his success with his friend. But I treated you like gold, I was all in
Spoiled rotten, they could smell you 'fore you walked in
In hindsight, Drake realizes that the person wasn't a genuine friend; he just wanted to reap the fruits of his hard work. When this guy saw Drizzy's career take off and his never got off the ground, he became disillusioned. The OVO leader does not specify the nature of their fall out, but he feels betrayed and their relationship will never be the same.How you feelin' in your soul since you sold that?
I'll be better off without you, and we know that
Sadly, his pal got "lost in the game."
