Man, for Pete's sake, scratch that: sweepstakes

from Drake (Ft. Nicki Minaj) – Up All Night Lyrics on Rap Genius


Whoops! Nicki forgot she’s a girl and started talking about guns (in the line above)

She wants to “scratch” (erase) that unfeminine line — just as you scratch a Lottery ticket (they were called “sweepstakes” tickets in the olden days)

Also a slight reference to disgraced baseball legend Pete Rose’s gambling controversy:

Also a reference to NBA legend “Pistol Pete” Maravich who played for the Atlanta Hawks.
