This verse encapsulates how he is perceived by haters/skeptics. It is well known that Drake is not from the hood and did not face the same struggles. However, he had his own struggles and he worked harder than anyone knows to reach where he is.
Some interpret this verse as jabs at singer The Weeknd. There is speculation that OVOXO is perhaps no longer..

Depending on how you interpret that tweet, a more likely target could be Drake’s old friend Voyce. The two have been into it before and Drake released “Exposed,” which was aimed at his former counterpart.
