People like Mazin who was a best friend to me
Start to become a distant memory, things change in that life
And this life started lacking synergy
And fuckin' with me mentally, I think it's meant to be

from Drake – Wu-Tang Forever Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Mazin Elsadig was an actor on Degrassi and once close friends with Drake, as well as a collaborator. But now, he’s just a part of Drake’s past. No new friends, but sometimes you’re too busy for old ones.

With regards to “that life and this life started lackin' synergy,” his music career started to interfere with his acting career, but that was probably for the best .

In an interview with Ryan Seacrest, Drake acknowledged this line and clearly stated that Mazin is still his best friend. The line is just meant to indicate that most of his friends from the acting world aren’t as close to him.
