I'm a descendent of either Marley or Hendrix
I haven't figured it out cause my story is far from finished
Bob Marley and Jimi Hendrix were respectively visionary reggae and psychedelic rock musicians. Drake has long talked of his admiration of Hendrix. Not to mention, in his second mainstream hit, “Over”, he makes sure to add his allusion to Marley’s own “Trenchtown Rock”: “One thing ‘bout music: when it hits, you feel no pain.”
“My story is far from finished” also refers to the fact that both of the aforementioned legends are now deceased (cut down in their prime, even), but Drake does not see this same fate befalling him.
Sidenote: Like Drake, both Bob Marley and Jimi Hendrix were mixed race.
