Open the mail, starin' at the check
Enough to make you throw up, man it's gross what I net

from Drake – Worst Behavior Lyrics on Rap Genius


In financial terms, “gross” means the total amount, and “net” means total take away loss/expenses (basically, how much you actually earn). Saying “it’s gross what I net” suggests that he’s not losing any money to taxes — his net income is his gross pay. This could in fact be true if he sends his money to offshore banks in tax-free zones.

Drake also changes the meaning of “gross” to mean nasty, enough to make you throw up — i.e. it’s sick how much money he really makes. He makes so much money he doesn’t even know how much he makes.
