I've always treated my city like some shoulder pads

from Drake (Ft. Lil Wayne & Trey Songz) – Successful Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Drake is the only HUGE rap star out of Toronto (sorry Kardinal Offishall), so he’s carrying the whole town on his back.

But DRAKE: couldn’t you find maybe a less feminine metaphor than “shoulder pads”? (hopefully he means football..)
