Word on road is the clique about to blow

from Drake – Cameras Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Drake most likely talking about the two-man crew, OVOXO. The group consists of Drake (October’s Very Own) and The Weeknd (XO), and how they are quickly on the rise (especially The Weeknd, he’s popular among white teenage girls these days!)

He’s also name-dropping Word On Road, his official fan website. Plus, the word “clique” sounds like “click”, the onomatopoeic word usually used to describe camera shutters taking a picture.

To make this all work, he slightly alters the famous idiom “word on the street” saying instead “word on road”.
