The song kicks off with the sound of a phone ringing, followed by a jolting sample from DMX's 1999 track "What These Bitches Want." Drake then comes in with the lines "On some DMX s--t . I group DM my exes." Later on, the hook interpolates another DMX number, his 1998 single "How's It Goin' Down."
Eyebrows have been raised at these references to the Ruff Ryders rapper, as DMX has previously had some not very nice things to say about Drake. Back in 2012, he said during a Breakfast Club interview
. "I don't like anything about Drake. I don't like his f---ing voice; I don't like the s--t he talks about. I don't like his face. I don't like the way he walks. Nothing. I don't like his haircut."
