Yea, sure this ain't Compton but this ain't a fairytale land neither

from PARTYNEXTDOOR (Ft. Drake) – Over Here Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Compton is one of the worst criminal cities in the United States. The height of their crime rate was in the early 90’s, when rap groups started taking over such as N.W.A. and Compton’s Most Wanted.

To sum it up, Drake is saying that his life and the thing he experiences isn’t close to the thing you could experience in Compton, but it isn’t a fairytale either.

He’s also talking about the jokes people make about him not starting from the bottom because he grew up in a nice neighborhood and never really struggled.
