Always hated the boy, but now the boy is the man
Mothafucka, I done grown up!

from Drake – Worst Behavior Lyrics on Rap Genius


Drake is likely talking about himself here if I’m not mistaken. He’s often referred to himself as “The Boy” and he even does it in this album multiple times, including this song like he does here.

In Furthest Thing, he states

Yours truly, the boy

In From Time, Drizzy again states:

Who you settling for? Who better for you than the boy, huh?

He’s reiterating the issue in these bars: people always hated him for being himself, but now he doesn’t have to care because he’s undeniably running the game right now.

Hence the wordplay with boy/man, he’s just that dude now.
