  • Despite all his fame and fortune, Drake remains committed to his home city of Toronto and his OVO crew. He raps here about the importance of friendship and loyalty:

    Me and all my niggas doin' well, doin' well, dog
    You not from the city, I could tell, I could tell, dog
    Did it, did it, did it by myself, by myself, dog
    Blew up and I'm in the city still, I'm still here, dog

    Drake is targeting here a former friend who has fallen out with him. It may be that this is another jab at Meek Mill whom he collaborated with on "R.I.C.O." before the pair started dissing each other.
  • Speaking to Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 show, Drake talked about the friendships he's seen come and go since he's become a successful recording artist.

    "These fly-by-night people that you just come across. They're all not to be trusted, I don't trust none of them… This is war man, we're playing for keeps bro… Yeah I've seen people I've had the utmost respect for do foul s--t. If they could have their way I'd be on the street corner with all the guys in this room and my family."
  • The bubbly beat was supplied by Jahmar "Daxz" Carter. The young Toronto producer also co-produced "6 Man" from If You're Reading This, It's Too Late, when still a teenager as well as Drake's diss track "Back to Back."
