What would be really funny if I blew up after Drizzy
And started from the bottomless back to the topless like a watcher of Strips
On 5AM in Toronto Drake raps:
Lupe describes how a man pays attention to a dancer in a strip club. Drake used the original version of the track to describe how he was at the very bottom of the rap game and/or not very wealthy (even though he’s few monetary issues in his lifetime), and progressed all the way up to the top of the rap game and acquired massive amounts of wealth. In Lupe’s case, he’s beginning at the bottom, “bottomless” (visible vagina) and working upwards towards the top / “topless” (exposed breasts). Topless is also a much used reference to expensive convertible cars used by many rappers to signify success
Note also the pun on Drake’s tune
This also ties back to the previous line about falling “into a bottomless pit” — as if Lupe started from the bottomless and worked his way up to the topless.
